    I'm afraid he will too and I'd be gutted if he leaves.

    In the current team he'd be my first choice DM and RB, but the most logical position for him is RB and I wonder if he wants to stay for that.

    He's my favourite player of this current squad. TBF not too much competition at the moment.
    His attitude though - not wanting to play in a certain position, etc. has me baffled. It's a team sport.

    I don't think he will leave. He has a manager who trusts in him. He has played in a semi final and final, while winning it as well. Not sure that's something you just give up. He messed up, got dropped, then got rewarded for his hard work.

    I think during a season where Arteta can only make tweaks here and there positonally, I don't think he could take the risk of throwing AMN into midfield. Pre season is a whole different ball game. If AMN wants to play midfield, now is the time to stake his claim. He has 3 years on his deal. There shouldn't be a hurry for him to want to leave or the club to want to sell him in my opinion.

    When will you realise he's not going to play in midfield? You've banged this drum for ages but it has never got any closer to being a reality. We had Guendouzi banished from the squad and Torreira not match fit and he still didn't get a game in midfield. Now we're looking to sign Partey and keep Ceballos which means it's not going to be any easier for him. If he stays here he'll remain a utility full back. His only chance of regular first team football will be beating Bellerin for the RB spot.

    Wow I remember Geremi. He was actually a good player imo.

    I forgot to add O’Shea to the Utd list.

    Gio Van Bronckhorst was a great utility player in our 2002 Double too.

    All top teams have players like that.

    I know he has not been getting a lot of games since Arteta came in and we signed Cedric on top of that but he would be foolish to leave now. His manager just made him play semi finals and finals of Fa cup against 2 big teams (even though it was for tactical reasons). Mikel surely trusts him and will find a way to make him part of his plans.

    But is he ready and willing to commit to that role? Hope he is...

    Blind faith or even clutching at straws.

    Ainsley is a top class footballer and really good athlete. I really hope he commits himself to right back, and improves his defending and intensity. If he does he is going to the top.

    Would also allow us to flog Bellerin for a decent fee.

    100 already. Holy **** that went fast.

    If he keeps working hard and putting in big performances out of position, he'll eventually get his opportunity - of that I have great faith.

    Yeah I was wrong too. With Bellerin out rumours starting he'd be crazy to leave now. As I said on Sat, he kept Saka out of the starting line up, that says a lot about how he's improved!
