Wenger on Ramsey

Great words from Arsene Wenger on new signing Aaron Ramsey, and how young players fit into a top Premier League team. There's an awful lot to be proud of right now when it comes to the Gunners. (NOTE: this was written before kickoff of the Carling Cup game against Sheffield United)

Wenger has been impressed by the progress of the Welsh teenager.

"I am very, very happy with him and I believe he will be a tremendous player for Arsenal,'' said Wenger. "He has already improved some areas where you want to improve when you are seventeen-and-a-half years old.

"Aaron is a serious boy, he knows what he wants, is highly committed and for me he has all that is needed to become a good player - not only a good player, but a great player for the club.

"You want to take a little bit of time, this is Arsenal, we are top of the Premier League and you want to give the players the needed development when they come in under such a pressure to perform. He can do that.''

The young Gunners looked very established last night. Being a United Fan, I was a bit worried about the future, as Arsenal's young staff shined very bright. Although United's young stars in Possebon and Welback looked decent, Vela and Bendtner stole the Carling Cup Spotlight It also makes me a bit nervous about Carlos Vela in terms of international matches. Now that Mexico has another young gem playing in Europe, it gives the U.S.-Mexico rivalry a new threatening variable.
