Neil Banfield was battling a cough when he spoke to Arsenal TV Online after Tuesday night's 1-0 defeat against Fulham.

However, the Reserve team manager found his voice to praise a very young second-string side after an impressive display against more experienced opponents.

Neil discussed:

  • his side's performance
  • what he said to them after the game
  • the penalty decision
  • not shying away from the physical battle
  • being well organised in defence
  • the advice he's given the young players heading to Olympiacos
  • Nacer Barazite's injury
