Smith Rowe says nice things about Nketiah

18

Emile Smith Rowe says he was surprised at Eddie Nketiah’s lack of game time at Leeds United but is happy to see his close pal thriving back at Arsenal.

The England under-21 international scored his third Gunners goal of the season on Monday night as Mikel Arteta’s side eased past Portsmouth to secure a place in the FA Cup quarter-finals.

Having scored five goals for Leeds before Christmas, Eddie now has eight for the season. That’s maths, that’s how it works. You add one to the other and get a total figure.

Anyway, we digress. Smith Rowe, who is currently having a whale of a time in landlocked Huddersfield, never had any doubts that Eddie would come good.

“Eddie’s been scoring a lot, to be fair,” he told Football League World. “He’s a striker and he’s always scoring goals.

“I’m close to him so I messaged him saying well done and stuff so hopefully he can carry on doing it for Arsenal.”

Like many onlookers, Emile was surprised that Eddie didn’t play much under Marcelo Bielsa. He was so surprised, he basically said the same as above in a slightly different way.

“I was pretty surprised to see that he wasn’t starting as many games as he wanted to.

“Everyone knows how good Eddie is and even when he wasn’t starting he was coming on, scoring, and showing what he can do.

“I’m happy that he’s come back to Arsenal and he’s scoring goals.”

Lovely.

His laugh also seems so fake. Just like Auba’s
I don’t mean that in a bad way, I fake laugh all the time as well, but not as much as Auba

Smith-Rowe worth assessing end of loan.

We need to prepare for post Ozil next season even if he is sticking around to see out end of contract.

he’s a great asset to have but we should realise his limitations and be prepared to rotate him out at 50-60 minute mark.

Wenger knew this. And it should be explained to Ozil this is not a diss rather he needs to see performance as impactful over duration he is on. Its not abut how long you play, its how effective.

Do you have to wank over Özil in every post though? It’s boring and monotonous. Get over it.
