    Gabriel Paulista at CB with Luiz. Silva and Edu in CM. Torreira doesn’t get in, been awful here.

    F... me I forgot Gabriel and Luiz! They'd have been an upgrade on Denilson and Andre Santos!

    Wouldn't take Eduardo though, he was officially Croatian.

    Carini was never an Arsenal player.

    Vivas is probably the worst player in the clubs history

    This thread is a good reminder that we need to sack whoever our South American scout is.

    I feel like Paulista had a lot of potential, it's just that Arsenal is a graveyard for CB's.

    Yeah he isnt the most clever man, tbf, so the language barrier was a real problem. Looked good in Valencia though, whenever i have seen him. About his level, and that is not a bad level at all.
    Too similar to Koscielny i would say, so that pairing never worked
     
  11. El Duderino

    El Duderino 99 Problems But A Mitch Ain't One

    He's our head scout now, I think. Could be wrong.

    Yeah I was messing with Carini.

    Lucas Torreira wouldn’t get into midfield with Edu, Silva and Denilson. Denilson was much much more established and for some time, an excellent young player.

    Torreira is just the Uruguayan Lee Cattermole.

    I would say I can't believe this forum rates Torreira but I can't say I'm surprised tbh.

    Tir Na Nog In Big Trouble If He Speaks

    Denilson was far better than Torreira.

    I kinda wish there were more choices tbh, would say @GDeep™ is spot on here, then again when he's not?

    Is that the one the usual suspects credit him for finding Martinelli after Martinelli had been on numerous trials at United, Barcelona and Real Madrid? :lol:

    Makes the scouting of him all the more impressive... Can you not see how it makes it so? Scouts knew he’d been passed over by those clubs but trusted what they saw regardless. That takes something more than eyes— a bit like murdering Puffins really, where you need eyes, a net and no soul.

    Vivas Gabriel Luiz Silvinho

    Gilberto Edu

    Sanchez Baptista Martinelli

    Eduardo

    Not calling Eduardo Brazilian, would be like calling Diego Costa Spanish.

    I agree with say yes, this is a pathetic 11 considering the talent that has came out of South America in the past 25 years. Only Gilberto and Sanchez were world class for us.

    He’s been the same player before, during and since his Arsenal career ended. Passionate, fully committed CB’s like his type can lead you up the garden path many times but ultimately their downfalls are usually their own making. Compared to the state of ours now, you’d give him another go, but that’s hardly a ringing endorsement.
