In 2017, a crack soccer unit was relegated to the benches and training grounds for being not quite as good as new players. These men promptly accepted their fate, slinking into the Colney underground. Today, still wanted by the club, they survive as cup competition players. If Arsenal have a low profile match, if no one else is fit and if Wenger can trust them... maybe we can watch, The B-Team.
No? I’m the only one who watched old TV as a kid? Well, gather round as the second string, some youth and perhaps even Alexis Sanchez run out to face League One strugglers Doncaster. This should go swimmingly...
