We've entered an u21 side into the Checkatrade Trophy this season.

This means our kids will get at least three games against Football League opposition.

We've been drawn in a group with Cheltenham, Coventry and Forest Green.

Emile Smith-Rowe has signed a new long-term contract.

He signed on professional terms just last year and has already been rewarded with a new deal. Shows just how highly the club rate him. I've a feeling he'll be very involved with the first team in the next couple of years.

Him and Maitland-Niles seem like they will be immediate back ups for Ramsey and Torreira respectively, with Guendouzi backing up XHAKA.

Freddie Ljungberg's u23s lost their first game of the season earlier today... 6-5 against Man City Laughing

Smith-Rowe scored twice. Bielik, Amaechi and Mavididi scored the rest. Nketiah missed a penalty.

Nketiah really needs to work on those penalties, missed one in pre-season as well.

On the other hand the U18 won their first game 4-2 against Aston Villa's U18. Folarin Balogun with two goals, Yunus Musah and Taylor-Hart with the rest.

He's not an Arsenal player anymore after joining Wolfsburg for a million and a half € last summer, but maybe this will give some context on why he didn't make it at Arsenal...

VfL Wolfsburg have fired ex-Arsenal youngster Kaylen Hinds (20) today. Hinds has been simply absent from Wolfsburg for more than 5 weeks now Laughing

DoF Schmadtke: "He did not fulfill his contractual obligations even in the face of repeated requests and summons. We do not tolerate such behaviour."
His  contract would have run until 2020 but was canceled by Wolfsburg.
Hinds excuse in mid August had been that he couldn't return to Germany from England for the beginning of training due to having "lost his passport". Schmadtke now pointed out that it wouldn't take 4 weeks to get a provisional passport or similar document.
Before being fired today, Hinds had been warned and fined.

Imagine getting the opportunity to play professional football at the highest level and doing this kind of stuff...

It's Wolfsburg though, the club and the town, we're talking about so I can't really judge him

Our u23s just smashed Coventry 3-0 in their opening Checkatrade Trophy group game. Goals from Smith-Rowe, Nketiah and Willock.

This is a senior competition btw. Coventry might have changed their team a lot but this was kids against full-time pros. It's a really impressive result.
