    I don't see this elsewhere, but Bloomberg is running a story about the pending disciplinary situation at Arsenal and how it might give a chance to some of the younger talent on the bench. Its on the terminal, so I can't link, but to quote a brief passage:

    BLOOMBERG: Arsenal, with Bans Looming, May Have to Turn to Untried Players

    "With Wenger's defensive options limited, young players may
    get a chance to impress.
    Swiss Philip Senderos, a 6-foot-3, 18-year-old central
    defender signed from Servette Geneva last season; Gael Clichy, an
    18-year-old French left-back who joined from Cannes; 21-year-old
    Irish goalie Graham Stack and 23-year-old Greek defender Stathis
    Tavlaridis may find themselves involved. Frenchman Pascal Cygan
    has recovered from a thigh-muscle injury.
    Some of the other players available to Wenger may not be too
    familiar even to Arsenal fans.
    Daniel Karbassiyoon, a 19-year-old striker from the U.S.,
    and 18-year-old forward Michal Papadopulos of the Czech Republic
    will be trying to edge ahead of the likes of Jeremie Aliadiere
    and David Bentley.
    ``I'm itching to get out there and show what I can do on the
    big stage,'' 19-year-old forward Bentley told his Web site on ``There's only so much learning you can do on the
    training ground.''"

    Obviously, this is a big list, but does anyone see this as a real chance for Danny?

    Danny is a forward, most of those jackasses were defenders. If it was an Ameican it would Simeck.

    D.C. give or take
    Plus he is still definitely behind Aliadiere and Bently, top youth strikers (Bentley's a bit withdrawn) for France and England, respectively.
