    I'm not gonna lie if Wenger signed this guy I'd be down. Another small technical midfielder, looks like a boy, has braces that generally those only going through puberty have. A side words and backwards player and literally a smaller upgrade on Elneny and that's not a good thing because Elneny is at least a tall man.

    But then it's the new revolution. And that makes me think there is character and aggression to go with his small diminutive frame. And I'm excited. Because I believe in the new regime. They've got everything off the park right so far. And it has to follow through.

    Not going to lie at first I thought we signed a tough tackling Uruguian DM with a iced out grill. Had best DM in the league written on him if so, but I sadly found out they were braces, but I'm still excited to see what he could do/bring to the team.

    His number choice though is ****ing annoying though. Vic was clearly the only thing holding this club together.

    Exciting times ahead. Can’t help to think, that this is a future legend.

    When will he join the team for preseason? We need him to connect with the other players ASAP.

    Cheers

    So he should be available for the last two friendlies. Hope that’s enough. He’s needed against City.

    Three weeks off then. Glad to see we’ve stopped that extended four weeks holiday bollocks.

    FA apparently mandate a 3 week layoff after a major comp.

    I'll be surprised if he's involved before the Chelsea league game

    Just from his official photos, he looks like he's up for the fight. Nothing bland or moody catwalk about his pics. Vamos Lucas.

    Yeah because we've made earth shattering signings
     
  15. say yes

    say yes Respect Me

    Wenger left our defence in such a mess that they don’t need to be earth shattering signings to massively improve our team. Just solid and sensible.

    Mark Tobias Mmhmm yes, I agree

    Just what were you expecting with a 6th place finish.
    The expectancy of some fans is unreal. JC!

    I think it's gonna take a few months before this kid settles in and he's probably gonna have to improve his upper body muscle mass, because he does seem at times like he's getting outmuscled and will lose the ball.

    Same height as Kante, but doesn't seem to be as good at defending and intercepting as him, but because of his small frame he'll get many fouls and he's another good player to take set pieces, except for free-kicks just outside the box. We still don't have anyone consistently good at that.

    He wont need time to settle, His south american his up for a scrap His not battling giants in this league. We just need to be considerate of his height and have a plan for that, he he can battle well for a header at least that will help, im pretty sure we are going to see a base of 2 in our midfield Terreria and Xhaka im guessing with any 3 ahead of them. He will be Xhaka's legs!
