Discussion in 'Arsenal Talk' started by Kingslayer, Jun 6, 2017.
Think it was Jack in one of those SoccerAM Teammate videos on youtube.
I'm not denying he's always has talent, I'm just clarifying that he only really hit form when he was playing at LWB. He hasn't played enough games to be judged as a LB.
As with everyone tonight, he had a comfortable game with the 15 min he had.
But, I must say, when the game finishes, he is talking to Nelson. It looked like he was telling him what he should have done on the counter they were both involved in toward the end. That’s more of what we need in this team. Someone willing to take control and put their arm around one of the youngsters.
There was a discussion in I think the Wenger thread about coaching styles. I think the reason why the Young players at the beginning of the Banter Era were so good was because they had that with the Invincibles.
This guy has top level mentality, I think that’s the root of why we were all so impressed with him at the beginning of the season.
Think he’s finished here
He is a very sloppy passer, one of several players who doesn't suit us. I understand why Wenger dropped him now. Hopefully his wages doesn't prevent us from eventually moving him on for a neat profit.
Another dreadful signing, our signings since 2014 have seen far too many flops we're just reckless with the way we've spent money over the past few years. Back between 2011-2013 we did very well to get Arteta, Mertesacker, Giroud, Cazorla, Monreal and Özil all in among a few poor signings too but it was way better than what recent windows have brought us.
People will say give him a season, but just like Xhaka and mustafi it’s clear he’s not good enough.
Don't care if he was in Bundesliga tots just like I don’t care that mustafi is a Germany international. Both terrible.
we ruin players
it isn't fathomable the xhaka, mustafi, kolasinac were all super fancied before they came here- and are now complete ****e
i think you could put messi in this setup and he'd look mediocre
Odd one. So easy to play FB/WB but he is struggling.
I guess a reason why bigger clubs not making the move. We are signing midtable players & asking them to step up.... They didnt & we are now midtable.
For **** sake, now it's crept in here as well. No more than 2 months ago he was the best left back in the league, gets dropped out of nowhere and now it is 'clear that he is not good enough for us'.
No, he is good enough for us. He's playing with absolutely zero confidnece under a dinosaur who has utterly shattered his confidence. The sooner Wenger ****s off the better and the sooner we will be able to properly judge our players.
Contradicting my earlier post, I didn’t think he was that bad today. Looked better defensively than he has, some of his touches/passing make me anxious though. Think it’s worth trying him for one more season but I’d understand if we sold him in the summer.
He’s not **** but his weaknesses are compounded by those around him and the general setup. Man Utd regularly win games with Valencia and Young as full backs, how hard could it be?
Absolutely this. Moses and Marcos Alonso were Championship winning wing backs for Chelsea.
Another case of a good player, who has their weaknesses exposed at a club led by a manager who should have called time 5 years ago.
Better than that mug at right back
Guy just look out of his depth.
Cant really blame him for that just shift in the summer.
This guy is the chief example of why Users here who throw our players under the bus are wrong.
When he came here he looked so good and everyone was behind him, but it took Wenger less than a year to make him suck. Blame the players all you like, the problems start and possibly end with our coach.
I saw a few games of Sead at Schalke at LB and he is playing worse than that right now. His decline speaks volumes of our current state of coaching.
Poor for the first goal but it was probably in shock at how Sane single handedly beat 4 of Kola's comrades.
Still believe in Saed. Silva's goal was exquisite, bigger issue was around how easily sane skipped past 4 players.
Currently resembles a bull in a China shop with how clumsy he can be.
