That was the same game where he missed the pen. Can't remember what the stat was exactly, but yeah something like that.

I'm sure it was he failed to complete a pass, was against Cardiff and like you said he topped it off by missing a penalty in the last minute

FFS, I’m sat here absolutely dreaming that we will sign him, takeover or not. He’s such a good player with a fantastic attitude. I mean he’s absolutely capable of scoring 15 goals from midfield had he been with us all season.

The fact he is only 21 shows there is plenty of improvement also. The big questions now are, does Arteta actually want him in the first team next year or in fact if he actually even wants to keep him. He may want to loan him out again for another year to continue his overall game time and improvement. This may then well be our only chance of getting him back as the loan spell has went so well. If Arteta is wanting to cash in on his current standing, then he will be at another club as no chance Ashley will pay the money if he is still the owner this summer (likely).

Is to Bruce what Cisse was to Pardew when he arrived. And once again, the manager will be getting all the plaudits for the results. Uncanny parallels.

Great news but assuming we do sign him (i know, i know) itll be within a week of the transfer window closing.

Theres no way big Mike will pay him to go on his holidays

He seems to enjoy it up here and he's played without the adoration of any fans until last night.  If he was here long enough to hear the backing of a larger crowd i believe he'd be tempted to stay, much like Rafa was after that Spurs game

His footballing IQ is very high, but he still needs to learn to impose himself onto a game. Can he put his foot on the ball and dictate the tempo, can he snap into tackles in the centre of the pitch?

He's 21 and already has the knack of arriving into the box at the right time.

He needs cotton wool wrapped around him and someone intelligent to give him the right advice.

Coming to us would be great for game time but if he can find a better coach he would be daft coming to us.

It goes without saying that we want him to stay, it's going to cost us at least 20m to make it happen though.

Problem is that if he comes here permanently and still have Bruce, we just need to lose 3 or 4 games on the trot,Bruce will blame him and he'll be sat on the bench
