No harm in rotation but if Gabi comes back ok and starts firing again, he will displace laca and eddie pretty quickly. I want to see Auba, Gabi and Pepe together.

Already outside and doing some work with the ball, he must be on or even a little bit ahead of schedcule. Great to see!

good to see him back running i also noticed while he was injured he worked on his upper body look he much stronger now. hopefully we'll see him in pitch in few weeks time.


True, but I am no longer that eager to see it in all honesty. Those tricky agile players lose a lot, if they go too much power.

Jack, Goetze looked half the player for example after he built himself up, and yes, I know about his illness, but still. It comes with a big price for those players which have their biggest talents there and you don't need to change, if you have it.

Many players have shown that, also in the Prem.
For every Traoré, there are 100 players that get much worse by bulking up, and slow.

Actually had the same issue to bits when I was 15 and went the next 15 years doing fitness every single day. It does a lot of harm very often.

Hopefully he's just as quick as he used to be.

I hope they dont rush him back as there is no need to, best talent at the club period.

Barely featured under Arteta before his injury right?
Yeah that was strange

Just Arteta things that he doesn't want to play Auba and Martinelli together I guess

Martinelli played in fa cup matches where Auba didn't play and then played in PL only when Auba was banned for 3 games.

Good to see him back. He adds another dimension.

We also have something like 17 games between now and Christmas not including the Boxing day/New year fest of football which is always a Strain. Could be coming back at a vital time for us.

I agree that Ramsey and Wilshere did become shxt after bulking up.
But I don’t think that if you bulk up, you lost your skills.
It’s more like they somehow started to think that playing like a gerrard/lampard is how a midfielder should be played. So they start to build their body strength. And forget how to play like a Xavi/Busquets/Iniesta. Fxxk them.

He didn’t look good when playing out wide. Also didn’t look like he had an amazing skill set, not sure he’s the Brazilian wonder boy that some make out, just like I didn’t think Saliba was the new Rio Ferdinand like some on here made out.

Martinelli has showed effort, athleticism and good finishing. Not much more.

Yousif takes credit for that! I think he’s on the nourishing formula now. Wenger wouldn’t allow it, hence the birth of ‘Baldshere’. Went to West Ham and boom!!! They clearly were ok with the hair juice.
Not playing for eight months also helped as he probably spent all day standing on his head.
