    Developing our young players: key appointments

    Could mean one of two things. Firstly, a greater emphasis on the use of academy players next season, of which Ljungberg has worked with. Or, the start of a succession plan. Emery does only have a two year deal and we're already a year into it.

    Bit of both, I'd say.

    Frankly, they ought to have had DB, TH, TA and Freddie (at least) on the coaching
    staff for quite a while.

    Know you won't like it - but this is yet another example of the control-freak Frog's
    selfishness. Just bizarre when you think about it, players of that calibre not being
    allowed to pass on their skills and knowledge.

    Nketiah, Nelson and Willock all had new squad numbers announced today.

    Nkeitah is now #30 from #49
    Willock is now #28 from #59
    Nelson is now #24 from #61

    All 3 look set to be more involved in first team affairs this season. Interestingly, no change for Emile Smith-Rowe. May indicate a loan.

    Edit: It's emerged today that Smith-Rowe has been given #32 ahead of the new season.

    Surely all 4 will feature a lot in the europa league campaign.
