Never was there such a consensus on a player on A-M before they played a game for us. These posts are just from the day he signed. It's actually scary when the average arm chair fan seems to know more than the people tasked with rebuilding the team.

He looks slimer and weaker than Arteta.

Bad signing imo.

It may be the modern way but when a goalkeeper bigs himself up by talking about how good he is with his feet, it makes me sceptical, particularly a goalkeeper without any pedigree.

How good are you at saving / catching a ball? That's the bread and butter, distribution is the icing on top, particularly for a back up

Anyway, hope he has a successful career here and proves people like me wrong.


We sign Iceland's #2. Iceland! :lol:

Alex must feel like he won the lottery.

Honestly I don’t want to be too harsh, but the only thing that makes sense to me is if he was bought as 3rd choice and they feel they can develop him and sell him for profit later.. His stats doesn’t make for pretty reading

Just watched the obligitory youtube compilation, as I have never heard of the guy. He looks like a flapper. A lot of his 'good' saves he palms the ball back out centrally.

Not sure I have seen a **** youtube career highlight compilation before. Pascal Cygan looked like Maldini on youtube.

He only made 13 appearances in all competitions for Dijon last season. He wasn't even first choice for them.

I think we wanted someone who was happy to play second fiddle to Leno. I just hope Leno doesn't get injured again, I don't think we can rely on this guy.

He looks worringly skinny and weak..

Nobody wants this gimp except incompetent Arsenal who instead of actually scouting and making sure a goal keeper is quality take the hear say of a goal keeping coach, you couldn't make this up.

I'll be happy if he comes good but so far I haven't seen what made the management buy this guy and they very quickly got Ryan in on loan so looks like they don't see what made them buy the guy either. Worrying.
