Managing Expectations

Wenger on the kids

This is exactly right, I think. So many of those players are obviously both very talented and not ready yet, and managing the level of anticipation for them is a lot more helpful than the “new Invincibles” rhetoric from earlier this season. Describing them in the terms Wenger uses is, I think, quite a realistic appraisal, and that it is is probably a good sign for the short-term direction of the club. The acid test will be if this sort of generous-but-accurate eye eventually is cast over players like Bendtner and Denilson, just as talented and just as overextended at the moment. January will tell us a lot; at the moment, I’m hopeful.
