Your prerogative. Let's see how far trusting Arteta's word will get ya.

I didn’t think he would be coming back either, but that’s mainly because nothing had been said about his situation which left a vacuum for everyone to give their opinions and project, with most of the narrative being Arteta didn’t want him. Now we’ve had Arteta give a definitive answer on Saliba’s future I’m prepared to take it at face value.

Arteta and Edu are talking about increasing the quality and depth of the squad. Saliba does that for them without any additional cost, so I’m struggling to think they’ll willingly sell him and leave themselves with Holding. He’s trying to put together a squad that will get through a season of Europa league and challenge for top 4. With that in mind do you think we have a chance of meeting those goals with Ben White and Saliba or Ben White and Holding? Obviously the first option, by far.

The disconnect I see on here with Saliba is he's not a squad player, he's a starter somewhere.

Many on here are trying to make him a squad player - him coming back is just mental unless somebody straight up lies to him.

Rob Holding, now that's a squad player and a fine squad player actually- and he's going nowhere so just take it man.

I don't understand this club. :lol:

It's going to be interesting to see a few on here (who call Pep a fraud due to his spending) try to credit our inevitable improvement in performances to Arteta.
Meh you know how it goes.

I'm just here wondering why is it always "war chest" :lol:
They been getting that one off since Wenger days, makes me think it's not real.

Doesn’t work like that I’m afraid. Saliba is still a relative baby in centre back terms. At the end of the day there are only two spots available. Arsenal is a few steps up from Marseille. The competition will be tougher. He needs to come in and earn his spot. He hasn’t earned the right to be given guarantees or take a starting spot for granted. Still has it all to prove.

Are you sure about that lol
Even the worst manager in world football will see an improvement in results if he's allowed to spend 150M each and every summer.

Unfortunately for us Mikel isn't an awful manager or he'd have been sacked already. He's mediocre but just about good enough to keep a squad performing in-line with its squad cost.

I've got the best goalkeeper and the best centre half. All I need are the best wingers and the best forward. It doesnt matter what the rest are like.
