    I am totally confused by such rumor as I was told several days ago that Metzelder is going to join in Man United. :shock: :shock: :shock:

    Well to be honest, it looks more like he will join ManU than Arsenal. He is a born-CB and Dortmund needs to make a lot of cash fast.

    Basically, Metzelder is exactly what ManU needs - a Nesta-type of player being capable of organizing their ****ty defense.

    If he leaves Dortmund, he will more likely end up at ManU (or Chelski, if Roman does catch him first) at this point.

    I suppose it's a possibility if Djourou went on loan, but this is a story from The People, so there's about a 2% chance it's true.

    Would be useful to have some height in defence, particularly when there are ten minutes to go and we're up only 1-0 having squandered 18 scoring chances earlier in the game and the opposition is bombarding us with long balls.

    appearntly we only enquired about him, i dont think we will get another defender after silvestre this season.

    Severely doubt this will materialise.

    AW said when he let Senderos go that we were stacked in defence. That hasn't changed and letting Djourou go and bring another defender in that hasn't any experience of the Premiership isn't a wise one.

    I was at the game and didn't hear Gallas get booed.

    Wouldn't be the worst idea in the world, even though he spends most of his time recovering from injuries he is actually a fantastic defender. Would provide great company for Rosicky and RvP as well...

    isnt this guy big, slow and cumbersome?

    We're better off keeping JD if Metz is another version of Senderos

    Metzelder and Mertesacker were junk in the Euros. I haven't seen much of either outside of that, but I was really disappointed at both of them.

    He is normally a very reliable solid central defender. I am unsure if he could play our offside game though

    They haven't played a competitive match for months before the Euros. They were both just recovered from injuries then.

    Fair enough Entropy, as I said I'm hardly in a position to judge either.

    There's a very tenuous rumour at the bottom of this article. His contract expires in the summer and he seems to want to go and actually play some football for someone. He'll be 30 in November. I know we've been linked in the past.

    Will he go to the World Cup? I guess he'll want to put himself in the shop window.

    Metzelder is poor and injury prone. If he's considered a starter at Arsenal our defence will continue to be ****.

    Maybe 5 years ago. He's not up it these days.
