These departures also along with Quincy and Allialidare are the problem I have with the Arsenal youth policy. These players were just a short time ago the future of Arsenal now they are out to replaced by a new lot who are supposed to be the future. This seems to of been going on for years ie Upson. The only players I can think of that have come through the youth recently are Cole (who could be on his way) and Toure,Van Persie although I dont see him so much as a product of the Arsenal youth policy.
so much for arsene wenger making youth players great jeriame alialedire aint had one game for arsenal he seems like a good prospect but hes slung into crappy clubs that dont give him a chance arsene was ranting that he made van persie a better player from a youth player to a great one which aint true but ashley cole i had never heard of him before he played for arsenal but look at him now wanted by 2 of the most greediest clubs in the world (chelsea) and real madrid
