Kieran Tierney (Out)

If he'd had a stormer of a season on loan we probably could've gotten most of what we paid for him back. The guy is very good at what he does when fit and in form. Unfortunately he had another up and down injury riddled time, which means that for what the past 3 seasons now he's either been:

-On our bench or injury table, only playing in spurts
-On Real Sociedad's injury table, only playing in spurts

Nobody's gonna pay anything good for a guy who last had a good consistent season with lots of games what...4 years ago now?

Thinking about it I actually reckon Tierney would be decent as a back up/rotation option. I think if you played him as a traditional fullback he'd make space for Martinelli. Initially Arteta had a ton of success by stacking Tierney, Saka and Auba on the left wing. But Arteta is too stubborn and inflexible to try different things now he's got a ball playing inverted fullback
 

Maybe

You're wrong, no?

Nah, he couldn't deal with the passing and building the game from the back. He was awful at that even though he was a reliable defender.

Would love Tierney more as back-up then Kiwior. Can play LB way better, can play LCB in 3 man defence, is way quicker & doesn't turn like a truck.

Selling for 10 mil would be a disgrace. Would rather sell in region of 20 mil.

I think he averages about 100 days a year injured

Why not play 1-2s on the left wing with Martinelli instead then? Tierney was fine with Auba and Saka in the past. You don't have to pass sideways back and forth across the defensive line before sending it back to the goalkeeper all the time.
 

Arsenal Quotes

Don’t be scared to be ambitious. It’s not a humiliation to have a high target and to fail. For me, the real humiliation is to have a target and not to give everything to reach it.
