Huddersfield 1 – 2 Arsenal: Video Highlights and Trophy Celebrations

Huddersfield 1 – 2 Arsenal (0 – 0 H/T)

Goals: Michael Flynn (75), Sanchez Watt (79), Nacer Barazite (87)

Arsenal played Huddersfield earlier this evening at the Galpharm, coming from behind to win 2-1.

The game was part of Huddersfield’s Centenary celebrations, and was dedicated to Herbert Chapman, a manager who achieved great success with both Huddersfield and Arsenal throughout the 1920s and 1930s. After the game Arsenal lifted the first Herbert Chapman Trophy.

The line up was a young one, Wenger taking no risks with the upcoming Champions League qualifier against FC Twente on the 13th August:

Fabianski

J.Hoyte G. Hoyte Djourou (c) Gibbs

Lansbury Randall Ramsey Wilshere

Walcott Vela

Trophy Celebrations

Arsenal’s youngsters got a run out here and came away with a decent win. Ramsey looked very good in the centre of the park as did Randall, who is surely one to watch for the future.

Arsenal Vs. Sunderland – Youngsters to be included in team?

Arsenal face Sunderland today at 3pm British Summer Time. We have already finished in 3rd place, this match is being played for pride. If we win today we will finish on 83 points equalling our 2004-05 total according to BBC Sport. That will be the highest in the last three seasons, an improvement I think.

It looks like some young players are set to push into the squad for the game, this is an excellent opportunity for them to show what they can do. Wenger said:

“There are lot of English talents in the squad overall. We have Gibbs, Randall, the younger Hoyte, Jack Wilshere and Henri Lansbury, who might be included in the group next year.

“There is a core coming up but I cannot tell you now if all of them make it at Arsenal. But they’ll make it to be in the squad.”

Gibbs and Randall have been included in the squad for today’s game, and I hope they play. I have seen Randall play before and his talent is an exciting prospect.

Alan Green shows gives even more examples of why he is a twat here. It’s not really worth linking to, but I will, just to show you the sort of idiots the BBC employ. Just total rumour mongering about players like Gallas and Fabregas. Bollocks really.

Here’s to a win today!
