Sambi Lokonga: Sam Be the Man in Midfield?

I thought he showed his ability again today, despite getting robbed. Only way to get him accustomed to the league is find game time for him, I’d be happy to see him in the team again.
The forum’s so reactionary it hurts, many people can’t seem to see beyond a mistake or a miss here and there to see a player’s underlying quality and performance level. I challenge people to watch the first two games he played for arsenal when we were losing at the start of the season’s, he was excellent but that was all buried under the negativity of a loss. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, he ****s all over Guendouzi and has far more talent. He has a feel for a press and an awareness that can’t be taught.

Nobody laughs on my "jokes" 😫
He’s a good prospect. I liked that he played in midfield and Arteta stopped trying to Xhakafy him. It’s not his fault he’s in the starting line up but at least he is improving.

Stats are just made up numbers 🤓
Sambi can’t be dropped, Partey and him give us a base of physicality and athleticism we don’t get with any other pairing. I’ll say this both guys had awful matches against palace. Plus both guys can pick a pass they aren’t glorified Obi Mikels both are more technical players than apparent at first blush

John Obi Mikel was a very technical player.

I want Lokonga to be the best version of himself for us that he can be . On the other hand I think Guendouzi is of a higher pedigree .

Still lacking presence, a bit shaky from time to time.
would become good and I am glad we are able to give him playtime.
still feel we could try playing white next to Thomas till Xhaka comes back.

Still has a thing or 2 to learn defensively, reminds me of Song...but so much potential, and time to grow in that midfield.

I love this lad. He’s taken to the PL like a duck to water. He has a lovely shoulder drop which opens up space. With a bit of fine tuning he’ll be a nailed on starter for sure. Needs to develop a bit in attack and/ or defence.

Nothing Wrong With Me
As soon as Xhaka was injured I said it will give Sambi time to cement a place next to Partey. Even when he was criticised in the Brighton game, I didnt think he was too bad, just that most players were bad. I think he does a good job and will only get better. His partnership with Partey is growing nicely, I'd say Partey has started to look better with Sambi beside him.

Sambi still not yet settled he wasn't supposed to start regularly that quick. Against villa was amazing today was okay. Imo in Jan signing mid is vital to ease up Lokonga because even if xhaka back Partey likely will be gone for 3 weeks and we never know if he'll comeback without injuries

I'll send Edu an email instructing him to offer Leicester £50,000,000 + Xhaka next summer, for Tielemans. I got u
