    There's bending over and then there's bending over. Imagine you own a bakery and the last twelve people who've come into your store and have been scam artists and tricked you somehow. You decide the next person that walks through the door, no matter what, you'll refuse them. The thirteenth person is a starving homeless kid who asks you for some free bread and you refuse because of past bad experiences.

    Koscielny is that thirteenth person. We have to make a stand, but not with Kos. Save that for anyone else.

    You can have passion and still consider it just a job because that is what it is. Even if you love your job, you still won't put it, or you shouldn't put it above your own needs.

    Someone else will try it anyway but we shouldn't have let it get to this place.

    Yep, even Nasri went on tour when he was desperate to leave. Same with Pogba and Lukaku at United.

    This is classless from Kos. Out of character as well.

    His request is way out of line. Tearing up a contract has to be mutually agreed, you don't throw a hissy fit to get it. Just like we didn't ask him to play for free when he first joined us from a second division french league, he doesn't have the option to let him go on a free when he is still contracted at the dusk of his career.

    Anyway he's never strike me a bright person, but I cannot ignore his contributions on the pitch.

    Farewell, you have just tarnished your good work over the last 9 years.

    I would expect the club to do that too...... after we are paid for him. No pay no talk.

    This is the key point. He signed that contract and he should bloody well be kept to it unless we deem that he should be sold. I am tired of this limp wrist way of running the club. Make an example of this guy.

    I keep reading that Kos turned down Bayern, Barca and Madrid all while under contract, did any of them clubs actually agree a fee with Arsenal for him to turn them down?

    Genuinely interested.

    Again, it's not about letting him go. It's about the way he handled it. Boycotting a match is thoroughly unprofessional on his part.

    why would u want to schlep him around US when his injury means he needs careful workload monitoring. Didnt he need injections for pain before matches

    if Laurent was smart, he'd just pull a Ramsey leave on a free next year with a big signing on fee to China or anywhere and his reputation would stay intact.
    Not smart at all. Maybe Emery communication had broken down, must have his reasons for sure

    YeahBee Terrible hot takes

    And they were brash hotheads and Nasri was still young

    Something must have happened for a quiet reserved adult to do this

    He must really want to leave. Such a shame that quite a few others don't feel the same.

    Yep I bet Mustafi and Özil can't wait to play a bit of air guitar across the US after they manage 20 passes in a rondo.
