{Ed047's Note - I’d be happy with that

Not sure why everyone prefers Balogun over N’ketieh?
Balogun we have hardly seen playing at top level
Eddie has smashed England records at under 21
Under 19,s. 10 games 9 goals
Under 21,s. 14 games 16 goals
That’s some record and before anyone says he’s had chances this year in our first team remember he’s played in the same season everyone defended PEA for not scoring claiming he had no service!

{Ed047's Note - I’m one of those and simply because I don’t see anything from Eddie in the Premier League that fills me with confidence.

He played for a Leeds team that created chance after chance and didn’t cut it there.

Balogun just looks a little more ruthless.

Highly likely I’ll be proved wrong but just my opinion.

I get that too Ed, but I think the reason we brought him back from Leeds was he was only getting mainly substitute appearances
Maybe it’s my romantic arsenal side again but he reminds me so much of wrighty when he plays I’d love to see him succeed.

{Ed047's Note - don’t get me wrong I would too but I just think at Leeds with Bamford (who isn’t the best) he had an opportunity to grab that spot and didn’t and that concerns me.

Don’t dislike him but just yet to be convinced, he doesn’t appear that quick either or is that just me.

How quick are you Ed? We can’t tell on here😂😂.

{Ed047's Note - let’s put it this way, if you ever see me jogging can you please, please kill whatever the hell is chasing me! 🏃🏼🥵🥵🥴

I too believe Balogun looks technically a better striker while Nketiah looks like a tap in striker. Because of his record in the unders why I say loan him rather than sell for his future value. Although I’m reading today he’s worth about £30m, not sure how much higher he’s going to worth than that.

30 mil?, but then we paid 72 for Pepe.

It's depends how you like your STs 337 mate. I've watched a lot of Balogun and Eddie throughout their time in the academy and in my opinion Balogun has that bit extra to his game. Eddie is a poacher which if executed properly can bring a lot of success however, Balogun is much faster and loves to run in behind and play direct. His finishing is unbelievable and if he was given the chance he could easily be another sensation for his age. I really don't want to see him leave because he will flourish and Arsenal will regret it 100%. If Laca leaves in the summer along with Eddie, Balogun can easily play number 2 to Auba and get the game time he wants. Auba has also described him as one if the best strikers he's seen for his age. High praise and I hope we get to see it for years to come. Although that looks unlikely 🙁.

337 we all prefer balogun because we have seen Eddie play he’s awful mate would you be happy with Eddie leading the line for us I know I wouldn’t, and I’m not saying I’d like a balogun leading either YET!
