Not actually American. Unless Di Marzio says so.

The times says arsenal might look to loan him out in January.



Wtf :lol:
No they didn't:
Arsenal are unlikely to loan him out in January to try to rebuild his confidence because of their busy schedule, both domestically and in the Europa League. Instead, they must hope he recaptures the form that led to him scoring 22 goals and claiming 11 assists in his final season in France.

I doubt some forum members want to see racist abuse re-posted here but I can PM a screenshot. Not sure how you ascertain that most racists aren’t Arsenal fans, especially when the fans of this club have a past of hurling anti-Semitic abuse at Spuds fans. I hate Spuds but some of the stuff that transpired in years past was beyond the pale.

Edit: it won’t let me post a screenshot in my message-I’m sure you can find some examples

Matey, can you post or PM me the insta or twitter handle of a any Arsenal fan who has posted abuse please? Most of these are usually, right wing trolls, new accounts or people agitating from other clubs.

Last time I heard racist abuse at an Arsenal game was about 1992. It was against sp*rs actually, and indeed it was vile.

People search 'Pepe' alongside racial slurs on twitter then get outraged by what they find, really just doing it for retweets tbh. Everyone knows there's gonna be someone on twitter saying some nasty sh*t even if he performed well.

Over the course of the season that would be hard.

Against Leeds though that's easy, 0.

Is that a fact? If that is true, what are we realistically expecting from Pepe. Take this game for example. The 3 central midfielders don't pass to each other, I am sure he got a few passes off Ceballos, but what is he meant to do if the right back doesn't pass him the ball?

The highest combination should be Pepe and Bellerin. Its mind boggling how we build up.

Leno got more passes to Pepe over the course of the 50 mins.

That explains a lot of why we suck. We don't progress!! We pass the ball more to our GK than to our midfielders
We don't play like this every game to be fair, it was an intentional way around Leed's intensive pressing.

Passing around at the back doesn't work against them, it makes sense.

Passing around the back doesn't work for us either.

Loved his ****ty cross that hit the crossbar, exciting stuff.

I would be worried about the guy if our attacking game was actually working, but maybe he just needs to get away from this league asap. He just seems like one of those confidence player types we love destroying.

PM sent. Not sure it matters whether it’s right wing trolls or other fans. Racist abuse is racist abuse. Hopefully Arsenal fans aren’t doing this and are only calling him non-racist epithets:rolleyes:

Anyone sending racist abuse needs a good smack, if I heard anyone racially abuse any of our players, or even opposition players I'd 100% give them a proper smack.

I've only ever really seen it from opposition fans, of course that's not to say it doesn't exist among this support but for example I used to see all sorts of abuse aimed at Willian, Bakayoko, Abraham etc from Chelsea fans. Being relatively anonymous on football twitter gives a lot of folk the confidence to send vile abuse and at worst they'll just get their account banned and create another.

It's so odd that Gabriel and Holding didn't pass to each other. We didn't progress the ball down the sides or switch the play. Tierney can get the ball to Willian but only Ceballos can get it to Pepe.

No, I cant find some examples, I'd rather you post examples rather than have a go at AM's userbase. Let call the posters out.

Dont think the chants were actually anti-semetic in a long long time unless you're being pedantic.

It’s annoying because you can almost see this unfolding like a car crash in slow motion.

We freeze him out, tank his value and get bent over by some random foreign team where he balls out while we’re slating whichever poor sod replaces him.

Think this system is so garbage no players are looking good in it. Don’t think he’s worth 70M but he’s levels better than what he’s shown.
