ARSENE WENGER once hailed his Arsenal class of 2008 as his best-ever group of youngsters.
Wenger’s teenage Gunners were supposed to be the next big thing after a 6-0 demolition of Sheffield United in the League Cup that year.
But where are they now?
And did they go on to have successful careers?
Here, SunSport takes a look at Arsenal’s talented teens of 2008.
THE left-back joined Arsenal from Wimbledon in 2004 and went on to play 230 times for the Gunners, winning two FA Cups in the process.
Gibbs, now 32, also won ten England caps, was eventually shipped off to West Brom in 2017 and remained a Baggies player until they suffered relegation in May.
He has now moved to America to join David Beckham's Inter Miami.
STARTING his Arsenal career in 2001, the midfielder only ever made a total of 13 senior appearances for the Gunners.
Randall, 32, left in 2011 after loans at Burnley, MK Dons and Rotherham, playing for the likes of Chesterfield, Ascoli, Barnet, Newport County, Crawley Town and Hemel Hempstead.
He now plays for Larne in Northern Ireland, and his sole piece of silverware came at Chesterfield with the 2012 Football League Trophy.
