Eddie Nketiah | The story so far... | From rejection to record breaker
Congrats to Eddie Nketiah, who has been named England U21 captain for their forthcoming fixtures.
It's been quite the journey for Nketiah, from being let go by Chelsea as a teenager, to becoming the all-time leading England U21 goalscorer, there's been plenty of hard work and dedication to get where he is.
Now sit back, and enjoy Eddie, Per Mertesacker and more tell the story so far... he's just getting started.

    If he works on his weakness, such as hold up play, touch, link up play, and off the ball movement. Nketiah could go on and become a legend for the club, but he has not improved since his debut for the senior team. Balogun fortunately has less weakness to work. Though attitude is in question, I do believe he will be the better of the two as time goes on. He's already the more complete of the two.

    Nkethia broke records in the U21 for Arsenal and England but didn’t play well this season cause he had nobody to support him or Auba; if we played Balogun in the same situation he wouldn’t have changed anything. Their both talents with heavy potential but let’s not be rushing everybody thinking that their the next Mmbape please.

    The video is us working as a club pushing a striker player for more youth players. The club hasn't seen 1 youth striker in 2 decades. What non contract players want more than ever. Youth built at the foundations of a Arsenal club

    Never understood why he gets hate? He played ahead of Laca during Arsenal's worst period this season. We didn't play with a 10, we played a 343/523 and didn't create anything. Had it been Laca or Auba playing those game we'd probably play worse as they don't press like Eddie and we didn't have much possession back then. Eddie isn't a creative striker maybe, but Auba isn't that either and he's a top goalscorer. Just because he isn't Haaland or mbappe doesn't mean he won't turn out to be of great use for us. You lot can like Balogun without hating on Eddie. Competition is only good for us!

    Nketiah will be a premier league level player and will score decent amount of goals. Unfortunately not convinced he offers enough to lead the line for Arsenal


      You spelt 'championship' incorrectly.

  • EyeTest's Actual Son
    EyeTest's Actual Son

    I swear this fanbase is so delusional if we're ruthless nketiah wouldn't be here imo half the squad shouldn't even be here. arsenal fans need to group there's no time for sentiment it's what got us here in 9th

  • Bacon Kraken

    6:44 Nketiah scores a tap-in and celebrates on his own. Willock, someone who has played with him for years in the academy, tries to join him and he literally pushes him off to celebrate his 2 yard tap in alone.

    i’m sorry for him but i’m afraid he just misses the quality that Arsenal needs. Even when he did scored, i just can’t see any specialities in him that convince me. Maybe a squad player at most, not even enough for that if he doesn’t improve quickly.

  • Kushal Woodhoo

    He's weak and mediocre.. not good enough for us.. if you think I am too hard, then, have a look at Saka, ESR and Martinelli who know how to take chances right from the beginning

      @PHATSTAR he is gonna be a star. Anf you will be around to see. How can you not see that Eddie is an outstanding finisher.... just like mosise kean.... everyon gave up on him. Now look at him flying at psg. Juve dying to resign him


      Had enough chances to display what he got which isn't much.

    I adore Eddie so much he is so deserving to do so well for Arsenal. He is very humble and a normal guy who wants to play for this club and for England. I don't think we should be putting so much pressure on him he is so young and has a bright future in football. Let's see what happens 💫


      He is as useful as a used tampon.

    Good stories. He need to go on a loan and get his game time and prove he can be at the same level with our other wonderkids like saka, smith rowe, martinelli. He already proven himself on england under 21 squad though, maybe with game time we can see what he bring to the team

  • Glitch

    Imagine drawing to norwich.....

  • WL

    Eddie won the golden boy in my FM save. The boy couldn’t stop scoring! IRL if Wrighty, Shearer, Wenger and Per say yes...who am I to disagree. Keep strong, stay patient and hungry Eddie!

Please go for a loan in any championship, epl team that promise you game time. Get back and prove yourself. You be on the TOP OF YOUR GAME BUDDY
