Hector Bellerin (Out)

Shame how Bellerin's career turned out with his injuries etc. Clearly remember when he burst on to the scene and genuinely looked like a potential world class RB. Feels like the injuries just halted the development of his overall game and regressed his insane physical tools.

Don’t think it would be a stretch to say he fell out of love with Arsenal / football which also contributed.

Admitted that he found injuries tough, believe he starting drink during the recovery. Then he slightly criticised AFTV and rather than the majority of fans have his back everyone just piled on.

Bellerin at his peak had Walcott level pace and stamina for days. He was never technically a good football player so when he lost his pace he became very ordinary.

He had everything, a very modern RB, the qualities that you wanted.
A shame really, because he is also a really likeable guy.

Good riddance,totally out of his depth for many years at this level.

Well said. Can never get the image of him bouncing off Grealish like a squash ball of a wall from my head.

Absolute embarrassment to this club that this flake was ever a part of it.

People here may think I'm crazy but I really wouldn't mind Bellerin staying for another year if he can't move their permanently. He's been very loyal to us over the years & he's probably better then Cedric as backup RB to Tomiyasu. Look at how much better our corners were when Saka & Ødegaard took them over Cedric haha.

just re-watch the last 2 season Bellerin was with us he was so out of his depth that Cedric took his place. his ACL destroyed his career here because he was going to be starter here for years to come.

He is only at his peak age, give him another year with us despite his injury, I reckon he'd be a much better backup RB for us for years to come. If he's ACL can completely improve then he can certainly be a lot better then Cedric imo.

I think Cedric is ok as a backup to be honest. Agree with you @Yousif Arsenal - Bellerin was half the player after he lost his explosive pace.

No Cedric is not good backup we need to upgrade as quick as possible he offer nothing much
Yeah it's not going to be a popular opinion but I don't see back up right back as a priority particularly.

Tomi is class as our starter and (for me) Cedric is fine as a backup. We've also got White who can play there when we need more of a presence. Although he gets trashed quite a bit on here, any player who comes in as back up is unlikely to be a massive jump up in quality.

I'd rather spend our budget elsewhere personally. Hickey is quite tempting because of his versatility on both flanks - but even then you take a gamble on whether he can adjust to the league. Norton-Cuffy may well be able to deputise next season if he keeps developing.

Agree but with the business we need to do it’s better to focus funds elsewhere and let Cedric continue as cover for Tomi. He’s played enough games this season for him to be settled and our chances of qualifying for CL doesn’t stand or fall with him, just like they didn’t this year. Better to provide substantial upgrades elsewhere and then go big for a rb that benches Tomi next year.

Arsenal Quotes

When I arrive at the gates of Heaven the Good Lord will ask "What did you do in your life?"
I will respond "I tried to win football matches."
He will say: "Are you certain that's all?"
"Well, that's the story of my life. It is not easy to win football matches, you know."
