Young winger learning from greats such as Downing

Basically what others have said already, Stringer. He's shown flashes of brilliance, but overall he's not that good and we really don't know if he ever will be a top keeper. He could spring forward and do that, or he might stay in the same place and just be another forgettable keeper.
It has nothing to do with his age, but yes, I'd also at this point still rate Wilshere as a prospect. I find him massively overrated and he's nowhere near at the level that people have pegged him to be. If he stayed on the same plane of quality that he's been at, then no one would ever call him anything more than a prospect that didn't turn out. If he becomes the player people want him to be, then fine. But he's not right now.
