    Not in the line up yet again, now he is getting benched by a kid with 0 goals and assists. Three different managers of varying competence are not rating him despite how talented he is. Raul better start thinking about transfer listing him before he loses all value.

    Not starting, must be horrendous in training. Surely not all great players are great trainers though? I’m very much in the Arteta in camp though so if I’m the long term he doesn’t play him then just have to trust the manager.

    Spectacular waste of 70m, need to get rid asap

    If I'm Kroenke, every person that was involved in this transfer would be fired tomorrow morning. That would probably bring us better results than getting in a new manager every 2 weeks

    Imagine spending 70m on the Ivorian Lucas Perez

    Poor signing, can see why he doesn't start as he does nothing help but try dribble and lose the ball. We need to do what Chelsea did with Morata.

    Dreadful signing. However scouted him deserves to be shot.

    Lady_Gooner That's Mrs. Ramsey to you buster!

    He’s been treated unfairly. Hasn’t really been allowed to build any momentum here and coming on at 80mins, which player cba at that point.
    Can’t imagine how bad he must be in training

    It is obvious that he is very talented, but in my opinion Arsenal needs to go full Brexit FC and sign domestic UK players or EPL proven.

    Gervinho or Pepe?

    Can't believe we spent 70 mill on a step down from Mhkitaryan.

    Iwobi looks like a prime Nani in comparison to Pepe..

    Pepe is not in direct competition with Nelson, Nelson is in competition with Martinelli as the workhorse winger of the team. Pepe is in completion with Auba as the cut in and score winger of the team. You could be making a case for Laca to be benched and the Martinelli-Auba-Pepe to be the front 3 we should be sticking to for the rest of the season, but Arteta seems unwilling to drop Laca.

    I don't think its a coincidence none of the other big clubs were after his signature this summer, had one blinder season in league un and that's where his hype has come from, just watch him when he plays for us he lacks hussle and doesn't like to defend which is why he is being benched...

    I still think there’s a star in him, and that maybe Arteta can turn him good, but I’m starting to think he was a terrible buy, even if it’s just because he’s not playing at all. I’d love to know the thought process behind this transfer.

    The other downside of this transfer is that it could deter the club from future expensive players (it shouldn’t).

    You could tell from the first game and what Arteta said he wants that he doesnt have a future here.

    Arteta clearly prefers Nelson. Even PEA was defending.

    We were all very excited when this transfer was announced but he seems to be a luxury and that money should have been better spent elsewhere. I hope the money spent on him hasn't emptied the purse for other players otherwise we are ****ed.

    The way I see it, he's an old fashioned winger and while we may see flashes of brilliance, he's not suited to today's level of premier league football.
