    David Bentley and Jermaine Pennant

    I think the reson for Pennant was his behaviour. AW had attempts had helping him out, but I think he realised he wasn't worth it. He was unloyal and too much of a show off. Although now he is doing well, I feel Wenger did the right thing. He probably won't be playing first team football for a good side in 5years.

    • That is a good excuse for AW, but why then have we signed Adebayor, who has refused to play for his national team in the last few weeks and had also fallen out with his last club before we signed him? If we don't want a player with an attitude problem, don't go out and sign one!

      • Just because a player has a dispute with a manager or a club doesnt mean he's a trouble maker. Anelka is cast as the biggest trouble maker in football. But when it came to playing for us there's was never a problem. There was a problem with contracts and his agent brother but when it came to doing the business on the pitch, non whatsoever. Secondly if out of 25 players you find one good one you're lucky. Players may have all the talent in the world, but being a pro footballer requires more. They have to have bottle, be sensible, and be willing to learn. Some players fall down on at these hurdles. Okay, so Bentley scored a hat trick but he'll have bad games too. Would you rather swap him for VP? 'cos I wouldnt.

    • These departures also along with Quincy and Allialidare are the problem I have with the Arsenal youth policy. These players were just a short time ago the future of Arsenal now they are out to replaced by a new lot who are supposed to be the future. This seems to of been going on for years ie Upson. The only players I can think of that have come through the youth recently are Cole (who could be on his way) and Toure,Van Persie although I dont see him so much as a product of the Arsenal youth policy.

      • so much for arsene wenger making youth players great jeriame alialedire aint had one game for arsenal he seems like a good prospect but hes slung into crappy clubs that dont give him a chance arsene was ranting that he made van persie a better player from a youth player to a great one which aint true but ashley cole i had never heard of him before he played for arsenal but look at him now wanted by 2 of the most greediest clubs in the world (chelsea) and real madrid
