afc WENGER WONDER OVER JAY SIMPSON

Recommended Posts

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is stalling on making his decision over the future of his on-loan striker Jay Simpson, but is pleased the teenager is showing real potential at the Den.In response to questions from the ‘News’, the Frenchman said: “At the moment it is too early to say if he [Jay Simpson] has a future, but I think so yes.“He has done extremely well and has scored goals. I always thought Jay was a very good player and the fact he can get good experience at Millwall makes us all happy, because he is not only a good player but a very nice boy.”Simpson raced through the Arsenal academy and became the first man to score a hat-trick a the Emirates when he rattled in three in the FA youth cup back in February 2007. He was built as a goal-scoring striker in the mould of idol Ian Wright; playing on the shoulder of the last defender.It has raised some concern that successive managers at the Den, Willie Donachie and now Kenny Jackett, have preferred to play him as a wide man.Wenger denies making any order as part of the loan deal, but insists that it can only be a good thing: “Jay can play anywhere and when a player goes out on loan you have to accept the club he goes to can use him as a wide player and as a striker.“When you give out a central defender or midfielder you want them to play in their position. For a striker it is always very positive that he is used in different positions.”

I've seen him play for the reserves a few times, haven't seen him at Millwall but from what I heard he isn't pulling up tree's.

A friend who supports Millwall told me he's good but not strong enough.
