Remember when us getting fleeced on sales was supposed to be a thing of the past?
Arteta did a lot to redeem himself this summer, hoping he can come around and incorporate Pepe into this team. Saka plays way too many minutes and a confident Pepe offers stuff not even Saka can
Its kind of ridiculous that Tierney, who was a British passport, doesn't count for this.
Never gonna happen! Doesn’t work hard enough off the ball for Arteta
I don't even think it's a question of talent or work rate. I just don't think he is smart enough.
Pepe - Not smart enough and lacks mentality
Nuno - not smart enough and lacks mentality
Lokonga - Not smart enough and lacks mentality.
AMN - no issue with football iq, but lacks mentality.
The all or nothing documentary gave you small snippets of the character of the players. Remember when Arteta did the memory game and Pepe literally was baffled acting like it was a test. Nuno having his 1v1 discussions with Cuesta, and that moment with Eddie and Lokonga.
We need to do our due diligence on every signing and mentality and football IQ are key.
Could do a Mudryk. Twerk for United end up with us. He does look the business and I'd like to have an Irish man play for us.All I fear is that his status as a United fan will hinder us if they also go in for him.
One would hope head triumphs over heart when he sees how far we've come though.
