My lord what dude
He has killer distribution though. We have zero at the back as we speak. Also no hesitation to hit the ball in the stands.
still better than Xhaka and Mustafi starting
Seems like a desperation signing and they have not worked out too well recently. He can ball play but he’s not the best defender and yes a cb who can pass is great but he need to be a good at defending as that’s his main job and imo Luiz is not that. Happy to be proved wrong and if he comes I hope he does great
People are ignoring the fact that Ornstein has said multiple times the club will step up efforts to sell Mustafi after the UK window closes.
What are the chances we sign both him and Rugani and move him further forward to take Xhakas spot and provide extra cover in defence? He played there for Chelsea for a while way back i think. Got the passing range for it, and the defensive side down. Not sure how i feel about another season of Xhaka starting every game.
Looks done. Started the spin.
What kind of wages is he on?
I remember when I saw Guendozi play last season I kept thinking "wait, when did we sign Luiz!?!?" if this happens, this season´ll be difficult.
120k/week at last check.
120k a week
Nice for Martinelli to actually someone to talk to in the dressing room as well.
OKay that's not so bad. I changed my mind. I like this signing
Tierney and Luiz done, Coutinho next. Blimey.
And by all accounts he is a good leader. Be nice to have someone on the back line who is experienced and not afraid to step up and take control when needed. Feel like we've been lacking that since Per was playing week-in and week-out.
There are some fantastic defenders at smaller clubs in the PL, and Championship but they aren't ball players and it's reasons top clubs don't go after them.
It's modern football now.
I can already see the likes of Gary Neville and Graeme Souness tearing into David Luiz before the season has started.
He’ll be targeted, along with Özil whenever we lose.
Like I said before, he will do the job for the time being. Hopefully with CL next season we can attract another, better CB long-term. And then sell Luiz to China through Joorabchian's contacts along with Özil just like scum did with Oscar and Ramires.
Luiz is an acceptable signing, if it isn't too expensive. I rate him in general and I wanted him before, but not really sure, if it's 20m pounds and a 3 year contract. Heavy stuff.
Want a big CB signing next season
I feel like this might work out really well. We have been crying out for some decent distribution at the back. One of the most bitter things when watching Arsenal is when we get pinned at the back and are forced in to so many pressure passes that you just know the big error is coming.
I think Luiz will help in this way, as well as being better than mustafi in every way.
