Well that’s something we can agree on.
Hopefully Willian is the last of it.
Let’s keep talking about off the field stuff because on the field, where it matters, he was absolutely terrible for 90% +, of last season.
Now the old man is out for a considerable amount of time, apparently.
Funny seeing someone call a 33 year old an 'old man', when they're over 10 years older than them.
Sorry to hear, send my warm regards to Gary Sr
Luiz is young though, just in football terms, 32 plus is old.
Gary pushing 50, i am hearing? Here we go!
The problem is that those other 10% consist of the most important games we had last season.
I agree that its a manageable loss for a lot of upcoming games, but I'd rather have back 3 Luiz in the starting line-up against Liverpool than not have him.
This is actually pretty bad for us.
Luiz has actually been pretty damn good for the time Arteta has been at the club, except that one City game where he apparently wasn't even ready to play.
Could hurt us immensely with those big games early on - why do we always have bad luck there, still that old curse from that Voodoo *****?
I really hope this is fake news. It can't be that we have 4 ****ing CB injured at the start of the season.
And all of them shouldn't be at our club anymore IMO.
And I said why do we buy more CB when we already have 6 / 7 / 8 CB and now we are lucky that we kept them. Can't be true.
Might be a blessing in disguise if Gabriel and Saliba can hit the ground running. If we're low on numbers we can still play Tierney at LCB or move to a back 4. I don't think it'll be a major problem.
Very good performance. Dominant, confident, winning everything high up the pitch. Had the aura of a captain.
Looking forward to see him with Gabriel.
My man of the match. Luiz doesn’t get the credit he deserves.
Can any coach please tell him to stop pulling shirts
I would agree that individually he’s been subpar at Arsenal. His stats back up that he’s been mediocre individually (huge fall in his stats from his younger days). He’s lost some of his old agility and aggression.
But what gets too often underrated in Centerbacks is their ability to organise the team structure.
They’re at the back and have visibility on the team shape. Luiz has the ability to arrange players effectively and make the team work better as a defensive unit.
This is why he is still valuable to us on the field.
Thought he looked really uncomfortable at rcb. He didnt know how the recieve tbe ball, so many times he let it run across his body needlessly, a red card should have come from it.
I'm not a fan of Holding at all, but I think in a back 4, our best combination is Holding-Gabriel.
Had a shocker yesterday but I'd still give him another couple of games at RCB and see how he does. Partly because he can communicate with Gabriel until he learns English.
