'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Lansbury handed Arsenal debut

Hooray Henri Lansbury got his first taste of Premier League action for Arsenal in the final day 4-0 beating of Fulham - just a week after leaving Watford at the end of his loan spell.

The Gunners young pretender, who turned out 39 times in the Hornets battle against the Championship drop, got a cameo run out as a 77th minute substitute (replacing Theo Walcatt) at the Emirates as Arsenal signed off in style.

Lansbury even got credited with an assist in the 4th goal of the game after being involved in the build up to Carlos Vela`s strike.

Watford are extra keen to snap up "fantastic" Lansbury on loan again next season with Malky Mackay stating "If he comes back to us , he will play another 50 Championship games, he is a year stronger and he is sent back a regular England U21 international".

But our Braveheart boss has also suggested that Hooray Henri might not be ready for the big time, telling the W`Observer "Were he to go back and go into the Premier League would he play every week and progress every week? I am not sure about that".

The question is will Monsieur Wenger take note?
