ARSENAL II. Discuss.
Comments made during Tuesday’s post made me think.
What was apparent is that many of our Senior Squad players get very little serious game time. Perhaps the odd twenty minutes here and there, or even the odd game, but certainly never a consistent run of games in competitive matches.
I looked up The German League, and discovered a team called Dortmund II fiddling about in their third division.
Not sure, but believe the Spanish do the same.
Anyway, how about an Arsenal II? Yes we’d have to enter at the bottom as did Wimbledon AFC, but in a few years there would be eleven finely turned out Gunners playing the Arsenal Way in perhaps the third division here. So long as we could ensure free movement of labour between Arsenal I and II, then players like Callum and The Ox would surely benefit.
Any thoughts? Not a totally original idea, I know, but hey.
