He's desperate for his boys to be a success here.
Yup, the rhetoric keeps changing everytim these same players let him down.
He always relies on pace and power, but has no stamina to consistently do it. He's almost dying at the end of every game and even threw up a few times. Very brutish player.
No surprise though, considering the source....
I will admit though, Xhaka had a better season than we've seen. Still not as elite as his fanboys make him out to be but he isn't a major cause for concern other than the fact that he is still a starter
If I had to choose, no question I would keep Xhaka over Kola. Sead is such a mediocre player.
Agreed but Xhaka is still not consistent. This is a problem we have that really needs addressing. @Trilly summed it up when he said players like Henderson and Milner may not be stars but they grind out 7/10 consistently.
Montreal at LB (not CB) has been Mr Consistent for years. But a lot of our team flip flop between 9 and 2/10. It’s OK if forwards put themselves in good positions and sometimes have off days by missing the target but your defenders and midfield in particular need to be solid almost every game.
Even if we take your stance as the truth it makes my point even more ffs
Monreal is worse than trash
Song was great for us
Verms got destroyed by injuries
Rumours that the nacho man has had his contract terminated. If this is the end of his stay here then thanks and good luck.
That sounds unlikely to me. What is the source of this rumour?
Would rather the clumsy tractor leaves and have Nacho as back up to KT3.
Really flip flop on that.
On one hand, Kolasinac is already here and on a long term contract - with a too high salary but anyway. He's fairly young but not a talent in need of game time anymore, so he's basically a ready made backup who theoretically can come in and do a job instantly - and he should be able to do that once a month or so. A Tierney/Kolasinac duo at leftback would be a longterm quality solution and actually wouldn't warrant opening a construction side imo.
On the other hand Kolasinac - due to his long contract, good age profile, sought after position - is someone the club could make good money off this summer. You stick with the reliable Nacho for another year, then add a young talent from e.g. the Championship for 10m or under.
Though, I think with Kola we could run into similar problems like with Mustafi anyway: rather high wages and streaky performances - although I wouldn't deem Kola as catastrophic as Shkodran. Really wouldn't want to sell the leftback for anything less than 20m but I can see clubs coming in with loan + option to buy suggestions, which wouldn't help Arsenal this sumere anyway.
Unless we are selling kola there no news to extend Nacho contract the guy in rapid decline
From released rumour yesterday to a possible new two year deal today
So if Tierney comes... WTF? Kola off?
Probably or Monreal just will be using as cover CB
Happy for Monreal to sign as long as he is a backup to Tierney. He can play in a back four back 3 or back 5. which is great for Emery, as he likes to switch up tactics.
Kola, is very limited, basically can only play as a wingback. Again he's on astronomical wages for a fullback, so I hope we can sell him for £8m- £12m to get him off ou books.
He should really be going for around £20m-25m but with his wages, only Clubs with a huge financial muscle would be able to pay that fee and his wages.
