Player: Saliba
He's been on loan for what now, 2? 3 years? Should have accepted it by now he aint here
Why would I accept malfeasance and stupidity? That's not a recipe for success in life. I may not have control over it but that doesn't mean that I'm ok with it.

Who's a better young ball playing CB in the England ranks right now? We needed defensive stability, that was the first stage of the rebuilding process. We were becoming a laughing stock with pundits constantly saying we couldn't defend. We look much better defensively now with White, Gabriel, Tomiyasu and Tierney. We have the best young sweeper GK in the England ranks again, who's better, and homgrown? The next stage will be to add to the likes of Saka, Smith Rowe and Ødegaard with some additional midfield and forward signings.

God willing. I want them to succeed and not trying to downplay White just emphasizing we could've managed the squad and money better and benefit more this season.

I hear you.

Consider this though and I’m not defending the bloke. What if he simply went out and got the targets that the manager requested? Is he doing a bad job then?

Yep. If he's just there to do a deal he's not a director of football, he's a broker. That's what I've written in my post.

I said “at best, maybe” Kos level. We have not seen them reach those levels yet and I doubt they ever will. White constantly gets spun and is ball watching while Gabriel goes through shaky patches all the times.

Think you would agree that Per/Kos was a better partnership, in a very attacking team with basically no help from elsewhere.

We’re 6th, lost more games than Sp**s and conceded goals for fun.

Kos and Per were better, yeah...though I wouldn't be shocked to see Gabriel reach Kos level, he has the potential...doubt White has it in him, but still a good player.

both White and Gabriel will become better defenders they still 23-24. people forget how much Kosh and Per struggle in their first season in PL so far Gabriel didn't struggle and he not error prone meanwhile White apart from few errors that didn't cost us anyway he been fantastic with how we play. they kept 9 clean sheets from 17 games you can't ask for more.

I think Gabriel will be one of the best CB in the league over the coming years, has a bit of everything as a player.

White is a bit dodgy as a pure defender, but as long as he has Tomi and Gabby either side of him, he's a very useful player... crucial in our build up play.

Happy to have both.

yes White dodgy because he take more risks and reactions are slow. you can add Saliba to the mix too who alot of people convincing themselves he'll be sold. we have very stable defense for 5+ years unless they struggle.

Yeah, there is potential in Gabriel and White. It's a waiting game. Probably still 2 seasons until you expect them to be rock solid most of the time.

Saliba is another one we should love to have. You have these 3 defenders and we can rotate and tactically face any kind of team in the PL IMO.

We never do business on a match day. Looking at 8 days left in the window to perform miracles it seems.

What I would say is that the club have done very well to keep things quiet. Nobody knows anything. It is pure speculation. There is a big chance nobody knows our 2 targets.

Gabriel Saliba is the one for me next season.
For all White's so called ball playing capabilites he's an awful defender. He's a decent squad option, but shouldn't be starting for a team with top 4 ambitions.

Arsenal Quotes

I believe the target of anything in life should be to do it so well that it becomes an art.
When you read some books they are fantastic, the writer touches something in you that you know you would not have brought out of yourself. He makes you discover something interesting in your life.
If you are living like an animal, what is the point of living? What makes daily life interesting is that we try to transform it to something that is close to art. And football is like that.
