    I did not know about the loan deal details and his rep's role. I would not put all the blame on Pulis for Gnabry's failure at WBA though. If the player was performing well in training, he would have played. Pulis is not that dumb, he will use all the assets at his disposal.
    Apparently his attitude was not above reproach either at WBA. When he came back at AFC half way last season, he was not even fit and was never called up by Arsène. So things are not that simple as we may see them form the outside.

    We gave him a lot of chances. We stuck by him through the injuries and loaned him to a premiership club but he couldn't stay fit. He has decent potential but a few goals against Fiji does't tell us much about his development (he still looked lacking in a lot of areas). I wish him the best of luck.

    He was our 5th winger after Alexis/Theo/Ox/Iwobi. 6th winger if you count Ramsey.

    this is going to come back and bite us in the ass.
    but i understand it, we have The Ox, we have Iwobi coming in.
    Its a shame because the talent is there, but it seems he doesnt want to stay here.

    That was maybe the case a couple of years ago but not since 2014 when we couldn't adjust to the market. Now, teams like Barca, Bayern and even Man Utd are taken as role models as they know how to generate a revenue and to grow further.

    Well to be fair, he still would be joint top scorer with 4 goals if his 2 against Fiji were removed (and the 5 Pederson got in that game who he was tied with were removed).

    I also think some fitness questions were answered. He played almost the full 90 in 6 matches in about 2-3 weeks. And he still looked quick at the end. That's way more demanding that a PL schedule.

    From the several games that I saw him, he had pretty good workrate, made pretty good decisions and displayed some finishing. He looked a class above a lot of the competition most of the time. I think he has more than decent potential (as opposed to someone like Ox where I think we have seen close to his ceiling) and if we let him get away, I think we're going to regret it.

    Do you guys know / remember who was the Olympics top goal scorer in 2012? Me neither... ;).
    Found out though, it is Moussa Konaté, currently playing for FC Sion and rumored to beon its way to Lyon, to play back up to Lacazette, for 5 M. :lol:

    Well good luck to him. I always thought he looked good mentally and physically when he played for us. Like others, I'd like a buy back or sell on clause. Sad for him and us that it didn't work out better here. Good luck Serge.

    I was impressed by Serge when he first broke onto the scene. Calm, composed, excellent technique, great pace, etc. I thought he had the potential to really establish himself at Arsenal. I am a bit surprised that we have let him go so quickly. Sure, he didn't develop as quickly as we thought he would because of injuries, but the guy is only 21. We have stuck by more limited players (who are still here) for years and years. A bit puzzled by this decision.

    Would preferred him to stay but pleased we got a fee & the situation didnt result in a huge risky contract like with Walcott. Gnabry might be a star but so could Iwobi, Jeff, Willock ect.

    I will always remember your good game against Tottenham. Your other good game maybe wasn't that good because I already forgot about it.

    Difficult to assess from the outside, but I am inclined to trust Wenger on this one.
