Well, that was a lot more fun than these games usually are. Very silly though, no real conclusions to draw.
Indeed.

Is Dvorzak all right? His legs seemed to have gone after 5 minutes. I've never seen a pro footballer move like that.

Whatever illness he's had has been mentioned quite a few times. A bit worrying.

Benn Ward is a Dylan Kadji level loan. Absolutely no use to us.

You have to hope Ward is a player that needs minutes to bring his skillset to the fore, because based on his LWB cameo's and today, he really isn't the sort of player you'd use a loan spot for.

Flynn:
- Good game of young players showcasing their talents
- Impressed with Arsenal. They had a lot of pace
- Young players with very, very good mentality and they finished stronger than us
- Good test for our boys to see where elite players of their age are at
- Their movement was quick and sharp.
- Game where we kept going and rode our luck
- Got game time into legs of first teamers and youngsters
- Completely different test with their movement
- Enjoyed watching how youngsters were going about the game
- Jaxon Brown and Anu Kanu: Its a learning curve for them Wouldn't single anyone out. They have worked hard. Can't compare them with 17 year olds at Arsenal. Its like if we played our firsts against Aresenal firsts
- Lewis Ward: Its always been there. The game will have done him the world of good. Didnt work out at Sutton. Can concentrate on getting back where he wants to be
- Rode our luck at times and had 2 cleared off the line
- First half we were too open
- Free kick at the end: Flynn was worried it was deja vu from the weekend
- All were very good penalties
- Got out of it what he wanted to

Do we have the worst overall cup record in the EFL in the last decade? It is utterly rancid.

Really enjoyed the game, funny to see so many people leave at fulltime, not knowing about, and missing the penalties !
Thought our youngsters acquitted them selves well, considering the opposition ! Kanu looks likely to become a good player for us !

Good value for a tenner. Enjoyable knockabout fun.
Not sure men against boys is the correct expression to describe Arsenal's dominance.

Valuable experience for our youngsters.
They were up against players who have benefitted from top level coaching for years through the age groups.

Useful gametime for those in need of match fitness as well.

Bon anniversaire!

Merci mon vieux. It was until I caught the penalties while looking out over the Med.

Really enjoyed that game for £10. We rode our luck but defensively while compromised many times players threw themselves in the way to clear off the line at least three times. Arsenal were quicker, actually and better technically, however, you’d expect that. Very wasteful in front of our goal and we could have and should have been mullered. But we weren’t so for that I’m pleased and I agree with Flynn’s comments.

I understand why some of you are disdainful of this tournament in its current format but for me it gives me a glimpse of the PL without have to pay extortionate amounts to see it. Yeah, they’re kids I know but the future stars of tomorrow, if they can make it.

Go to the Reading or Etc game? Doubt it. Go to any other piss pot, pizza cup games doubt that too. Lastly, lest you didn’t know, Arsenal is my hometown club.
