holy guacamole, who’s that number 10 kid? crowley? what a performance!


He is a youth talent we plucked from Aston Villa I believe. Fantastic.

remember the invincibles

If he didn’t create it, he scored it.
Zelalem seemed quiet though?

Return of the Jck

Arsenal player has the highlights as well. Zelalem played pretty well nicking the ball a few times and playing some great passes but it just doesn’t show in the assist column. He seems to be playing like Arteta. Without a doubt Crowley ran the show though. Akpom, Iwobi, along with both fullbacks also had great games.


I saw him in a pre-season friendly when they played Sutton Utd. I think he was only 15 at the time but Crowley was easily the best player on the pitch (and the smallest).

The 3 Billion Dollar Stan

We have some talent coming through with Akpom, Crowley & Zelalem.


Loving the contrast of a crappy Sunday league football pitch with our kids playing like barca on it

Wrighty's Gold Tooth

You mean playing like Arsenal on it


this guy… this guy gets it

Wensene Arsger

Crowley looks little bit decent

Just Sayin'

I don’t know who we’ll sign this window, I know he’ll Costa packet, but along as Arsene can Berb his proclivity for penny pinching I’m sure we’ll hear the pitter-Pato of tiny feet outside the Emirates come Feb 1st

No mind the gap jokes please!

Was like watching the senior team but in slow motion!

Hoosier Gunner

Not too clear on a mobile phone display but our youth team, albeit in the highlights, looked imperious!


Hard not to be excited watching that, even if it is u18 level. might be 16, the boy is silkyyy

The Indian

We have Ronaldinho[2] as our Right back!


Na… Mario Melchiot #2!


Looked to me like Edgar Davids..


If we still played at Underhill and given his actions while there, wouldn’t surprise me too much if he ran on wearing an Arsenal jersey and forced them to let him play..


HAHAHAHAHA Ronaldinho. Couldn’t contain myself.

Maybe Sagna’s contract issue might not be a problem at all 😉


Finally, we have Fabregas’ replacement in Crowley. What a pass for the third goal


might be a wee bit premature, that


Quality build ups and goals


Crowley has incredible close ball control and vision for his age, we have some very mature youngsters coming through and it’s all a little bit exciting!


Dan Crowley seems to have had a great game. Brilliant assists, and well taken goals. Some of those assists were reminiscent of Fabregas. Fair to say we have plenty to look forward from the likes of Akpom, Zelalem and (now) Crowley!

Aaron Mc

Crowley looks the real deal! Think Zelalem and Akpom are the other 2 stand-out players to me right now


Some of Crowley’s play was sublime. From the bits I’ve seen recently, Maitland-Niles seems to be coming on well.

Özil Gummidge

So many great prospects don’t make it at Arsenal, so trying not to get excited about Crowley, but why did Villa let him go?


Apparently we paid close to £1m in compensation, which is quite a serious investment for a then 15 year old!


Were they playing on ground that ought to be reserved for battle re-enactments?!

Great play though… In between ditches.


How many goals was that? I lost count.


Some seriously class goals there. The third and the fifth were the real standouts for me. What a superb pass on the third, and what a superb shot on the fifth!


What a performance by the team! A lot of promising youngsters. Hope to see them break through and make positive impact! That’s the Arsenal way!


Crowley must never be allowed to play in the PL. Some ogre is destined to break him and ruin his carer. So sad.


Crowley (he is the 10 right? :-)) – 4 decisive passes + 2 goals. That sums it really :p

Clock End Mike

As one or two others have commented, they really do look to be just a young version of the Arsenal, don’t they?

As indeed they should, perhaps, but this is so delightfully encouraging. Very impressive generally, and some very promising talents there.


this lad cant be english ? , wuick give him a 100k a week and burn him out by 26


That Peterborough goal was a good one!

Entre Dans La

Holy – we better not let too many British journos see this video as they will start the over-hype build up – knock down – build back up process on Dan Crowley
