    I think they just don't know ****, not covering all bases. It's not like they don't write wrong stuff all the time.

    Here is Van Dijk in action for the Southampton under 23's a few years ago. Didn't stop him becoming the defender he is today.

    Why are people trying to put a negative spin on this. We need to get away from this notion that our players cannot be improved on. Every senior player bar Auba and the keepers can be improved on.

    How can you have doubts over a player based on someone clipping moments together.

    DO NOT forget the moments our senior members have had repeatedly which have led us to the position we are now.

    Xhaka has a redemption arc through putting 6 out of 10 performances. He has no competition for his position. This run of form does not make me forget the brainless penalties, fouls and passes he gives away. His limitations are still there.

    Mustafi still slides around all over the place. He still makes errors. Don't even get me started on Luiz. Lacazette is still losing the ball and failing to effect the game other than doing the bare minimum of every player. Running alot.

    Almost every player we are linked to is an improvement on what we have.

    No exactly they’re clearly clueless but don’t say anything either way unless they’re proven wrong later.

    Utter frauds.

    Shouldn't they get us some discount after we paid them £72m for Pepe. I hope they have at least the decency to sell to us and not some other club.

    Would make almost £100m for them toghether. If Gabriel is the new Maldini we can say we are square.

    Agreed. Gabriel is young and has the physical attributes necessary. Things like timing and decison making will come in time. Someone like him you feel has the potential to become a truly excellent CB whereas with Holding, Mustafi and Chambers you always felt that even if they reached their full potential they could never be more than decent. In Saliba, Gabriel if he signs and Mavropanos we have three young CBs that are all tall, powerful and with pace.

    Everton fans are hilarious on their forum. Apparently Gabriel isn't good because we only sign bad defenders.

    Everton forum is hilarious, instead of taglines along with their profile they have "player valuation". Seen everything from 25k to 20 m so far.

    Looks like he needs a few tips from Bellerin.

    He's been outstanding in la ligue 1. He's still a bit raw and needs to improve but the talent and potential is here.

    With him and saliba, we might be sorted for the next decade at the back :bounce:
    But this partnership will make mistakes since they're both young and lack experience.

    I'm sure some dude named Gabriel has been spotted in London. Those pictures don't necessarily have anything to do with said event. So technically, he's probably telling the truth

    samshere Why so serieuse?

    Expect to see mustafi, chambers, sokratis and holding sold/loaned. If we're in for Gabriel then it's because we deem the above four not good enough. But agree with your general point that we're stacked in numbers

    Anyone know where I can find reliable stats for Gabriel and Elvedi? Maybe someone could do one of those statsbomb thingys?

    I've never watched either outside of YouTube videos but from those Elvedi looks far better to me, is still a good age but is more experienced than Gabriel.

    I posted this earlier, but I think having defenders of the profile of him & Saliba are key to Arteta's preferred system going forward.

    Currently, he's been making use out of what he has. But it's difficult to implement a high press system unless the team is nice & compact, that means defenders with the confidence to play high up the pitch, lots of mobility & energy in midfield, and pressing from the front.

    With Saliba & hopefully Gabriel, you can now see Part 1 of that plan. Defenders that have good pace, mobility, can defend the channels 1 vs 1. Therefore, they should be more comfortable defending further up the pitch. They also seem to be competent on the ball, & importantly in the EPL have good height & stature for the physical challenges ahead.

    Because they are so young mistakes happen, & they will need time to grow further, but for the first time in i don't know how long, the foundations look good there.

    his agent is a close associate of Kia, I wonder if the latter has some kind of input on this deal
