Tomorrow, against Olympiakos, we will be fielding a side that has an average age of 20.

These players include Gilles Sunu (18), Luke Ayling (18), Jay Emmanuel-Thomas (18), Craig Eastmond (19), Tom Cruise (18), Francis Coquelin (18), Kyle Bartley (18), Jack Wilshere (17), Fran Merida (19), and Aaron Ramsey (18).

There is no better advertisement to a young player than this. Make no mistake, getting a game in the Premier League is special, but playing in the Champions League is something else. It’s an opportunity to showcase their talents on the world’s stage. It’s a chance to show the manager how bright the future really is.

Some of these players may make it in the long term. Personally, other than the players most already know, I rate Bartley and Coquelin. There is word that Bartley will start alongside Silvestre, so we’ll get a taste tomorrow.

More importantly though, it’ll be a nice rest for our first team, gearing up for a must win at Anfield. The theme of that match: Arshavin Returns.
