As Jay Emmanuel Thomas lowers his broad so broad he is able to have his surname tattooed in large letters across his shoulders 6ft 1in, 13 stone frame into his seat it is easy to recall Arsene Wenger’s words about him.
“He has outstanding qualities,” the Arsenal manager said. “And the build you dream to have. It is down to him how far he wants to go because he has big potential.”
That was just over four years ago when Emmanuel Thomas, who had captained Arsenal’s class of ’09, which won the FA Youth Cup with a 6 2 triumph over Liverpool (only Jack Wilshere and Francis Coquelin remain), and scored in each round, appeared to be on the verge of breaking into the first team.
It did not happen. Eventually there were five appearances but Emmanuel Thomas knew he had to move on if he was ever going to fulfil wholesale mlb jerseys that “potential”.
“It was a big decision but at the time I wasn’t enjoying playing football,” he candidly admits now. “I had a few games in the first team and then I was on the bench a lot. But when players came back from injury wholesale jordan shoes I was always kind of the one that got shipped out, and obviously the players who were coming back were the so called players’ so I had to make the space. But I didn’t want to be that guy to keep coming in and out when people were injured, so I had to make the decision of moving on to play some football on a regular basis.”
There were loan spells at Blackpool, Doncaster Rovers and Cardiff City before a permanent deal at Ipswich Town where cheap ray-ban sunglasses he struggled after a bright start it did not help that he was moved around a variety of positions as well and then, in 2013, Emmanuel Thomas joined Bristol City who on Sunday face the Premier League club West Ham United in the fourth round of the FA Cup at Ashton Gate.
It is the first time in eight years that City have reached this stage of the competition, with Emmanuel Thomas scoring both goals in the 2 0 victory in the previous round against Doncaster. He has now scored seven goals in his last eight FA Cup matches and, this season, it is four goals in three matches for him with City in impressive form.
“I have a lot of friends who have different types of lifestyles, I know wholesale nhl jerseys musicians, I know people who do boxing. So everyone is different. I am just like a big kid really, I just like to have a good time, and I just want to keep that going.”
