    Not writing him off but, to be honest, I've never really known what Holding excels at.

    Think he signed for 3-4 years in 2018, so it's definitely not up this summer.

    Would certainly be bizarre if it was a two year deal.

    Is he injured right now?

    Just returned from injury. Ready for selection.

    He was a beast against ManU... even leading, cheering the crowd. Luiz at his best. I have seen changes at defense being more proactive anticipating the play breaking balls before it reaches the strikers. Even Socratis did well

    This would be ideal signing. Cheap veteran to help bridge the defense moving forward. Not needed for many starts.

    "Cheap" is an operative word.

    He was my MotM because of the leadership he showed, I'd be more than happy with him as Captain if he plays like that. I liked his interview after too, he made it clear that he was on board with how Arteta wanted to play.

    Always rated him. He is obviously past his prime, but would do a job when we need it. Could also be useful in helping with younger defenders based on his experience.

    We said this about Sok and Luiz too though.

    And why are you so fast writing off Luiz?

    I’m not? Looked poor for Chelsea recently and been horrendous for us until Arteta.

    He’s talking like a leader now, backing Arteta, saying how much he loves and enjoys working under him, none of this under Emery.

    So what was the point of your comment above. Or did you mean that we don't need Boa cuz we have two aging defenders? In that case i read you wrong and apologize

    Yeah, we signed Kos because of his experience and potential influence, same for Luiz, and now we’re making the same argument for Boateng.

    So maybe Arteta would get the best out of Boateng, who stands far above either Luiz or Sokratis among the top center backs of the past decade.

    Or we just wait till the summer and sign someone in their prime.

    Why would taking Boateng on loan (which is what Arsenal is reportedly pushing for) or even taking him permanently for a nominal fee prevent the club from signing someone in the summer?
     
  19. GDeep™

    GDeep™ Wrong, But Rarely

    Last I heard, a 12M fee was mentioned. You would think Boateng on a multiple year contract alongside Luiz, Sokratis, Holding, Saliba etc prevents new CB.

    I’m not even factoring in Mustafi and Chambers.

    Sign them all. God will recognize his own.
