Never get excited about friendlies and results, results 99% of the time meaningless. You obviously don't want to get hammered in any game but wins draws and defeats should be pretty irrelevant, as with performances but. This kid Guendouzi though, looks like a real find, a very good player sticks out, and he sticks out. Maybe save us a few bob on nzonzi. Its very early days but i think Dick is grooming him to start the season, he's getting a lot of playing time and he is the stand out player of all the youngsters.

We beat City in friendlies in the two previous pre seasons and look what happend once the serious stuff started.
I'm sure psg won't be panicking over this result and neither would I if we'd lost 5 1 it's a warm up dress rehearsal nothing more or less than that.
Community shield wins tell us nothing about the season ahead and that's about the nearest you can get to a proper game during the friendly season.
Lots of players get a run out but some of them won't ever see the bench once the premier league starts.

Agree gunner, its just fitness but that boy looks good, very good. I know he has only been playing in the french second devision but he has been playing grown ups football and it shows.

Kante was playing in the same league 2 seasons before joining Leicester and Mahrez 1 season before his move there.
I'm not dissing anyone but it's the premier league we are asking them to play for us in and that's where they need to prove themselves.
If preseason friendlies were the name of the game then happy days but we all know they are a world away from the real deal.
We need some of these young players to do a Rashford or Ali and do the business rather than just suggest they might one day be able to.

Too right gunner, they have to be good enough to want to be the man. This kid wants it, he's got but can he prove it?

28 Jul 2018 18:45:17
Hes got it, can he prove it.

Remember Reece Oxford winning mom against us 4 seasons ago on opening day mate? Now if he'd been one of players we'd have been giving him a 15 year contract on 100k a week:-)
The thing is we really need to see some of our boys make the grade in a big way because their predecessors have all failed to live up to their billing and I'm sure things will improve under Dick regarding youngsters but it will take time for the old ways to be forgotten and new ones to become the norm.

Really impressed by him, very composed, always looking for the ball, I don't think he wasted a pass.

That’s the thing with youngsters you will have to show them big dick so they know they have to pump it up harder. 😂.
