Traore: The Experience Helps

Armand Traore is one of the Arsenal stars of the future, and tonight he takes the field at a hostile White Hart Lane to try and help Arsene army make the final of the League cup for the first time since 1993.

Traore is only 17 years of age, yet is tipped to become the next big thing. The young Frenchman says that despite all the hype of the 'Young Guns' the experience provide by the likes of Kolo Toure & Cesc Fabregas (19 years old and experienced eh!?!?! Mind boggling) is paramount to the rest of this competition.

"I think it`s a big boost to the young players to have the more experienced players around us, we can win the Cup but I think we need some other players who have experience like Kolo and Cesc to help us.' ," Traore said

"Against Liverpool Kolo and Johan really helped me. They kept saying 'don`t be nervous, play your game, everything`s going to be fine`. '

"Just knowing that Kolo is at the back really makes you confident and I think everyone in the defence is more confident when he`s back there with us."

Lets hope the youngman can keep Aaron Lennon at bay, he certainly has the pace to keep up with him.

Lennon ran circles around him tonight, i thought, but i cant blame him, coz Lennon had a good game. A good learning experience and a good game not to let the hype get to him. But he's got loads of potential - definitely.
