When you are a back up player, playing every now and then, your mistakes are glossed over. Often you are rotated in during the relative easy fixtures.

Teams don't necessarily spend all week preparing to play against you as well.

When you are starting, it all ramps up. He's been unequivocally exposed as a fraud. Most on here had question marks over him but he has fallen apart on the big stage.

I think it reflects very poorly on Mikel.

That he was deemed good enough but Saliba was not and shipped out on loan is wrong and crazy. That in light of Gabby's injury troubles, Saliba was sent at the start of the window rather than kept around until the end of the window as cover is worse. That this bloke is running around stealing not only a living, but a highly rated prospect's minutes is the antithesis of what Arsenal has been as a club for 15 years. Yes, during that time success was limited, but for at least 12 of those 15 years we've been a damn better club than now.

Man was trying to block off Lukaku for the first goal. Lol. That was so stupid. Had he just continued running he would have blocked the cross...........or score an own goal. The point is, he would have got the ball if he was smart.

Another completely pointless signing and addition to the wage bill. See Willian and Cedric for other examples.
Arsenal fans when we make yet another one of these pointless signings: “I don’t see how anyone can have a problem with this signing”
“Good option to have. We can’t have world class players in every position” 😑
Meanwhile we don’t have a world class player in any position

Following this logic...does this mean Ben White is gonna be even worse than the guy, that is worse than Mustafi :lol:
Haha, no mate, BW had one poor game so far, but I do believe he was kissing covid patients just to dodge Lukaku.:lol: We can **** all we want on Mari but imagine BW getting destroyed like that after we've paid 50M, and I'm 100% it would look very much the same with him :lol:

I've never understood the idea of signing players for depth. Either sign someone to replace a first teamer and the ex-first teamer becomes quality depth or sign a young player with potential. Players like Mari and Cedric make no sense for us and just bloat the squad

This is what I've been saying for years, you're supposed to sign first 11 players and make the previous one take the back up role.

Hard to say just how poor Mari is until Arteta's gone. But I suspect he can't believe he got £85k/w. Kia took those newbies to the cleaners. :lol:
Rather like we had to wait for Arsène to go to see how poor 35m Mustafi was or the many other CBs he signed?🤣😜.
I mean Cygan was decent in other leagues but woeful here? So was that down to Arsène?

This was more like signing another Almunia.

Pablo Mari is a player that would struggle in most Segunda Division teams
