    The first few pages of this thread are a hilarious read in 2019, so much hope and excitement, pretty much sums up how disappointing Mustafi has been for us.

    A lot of people thought he was quality some time ago, and our scouting staff obviously thought so as well. Did he have a purple patch or have we all been drunk for a few months?

    Watching it again I'd say Mustafi is equally as responsible for that Everton goal if not more so than Kola. Jagielka is his man at the back post there, gets caught ball watching and completely flat footed.

    This is it. I thought he had a good game (by his standards) but the problem is he is literally worth a crucial error each and EVERY game.

    Guaranteed mate. For what we paid for him he has to be one of the worst signings we've made.

    I hope he's gone by the start of next season, so many errors in nearly every game that he plays.
    I was reading an article about Lauren the other day how we could do with some one like him in our team again.

    I can't think of an Arsenal player I've disliked so much. It's just standard for us to expect him to be crap every game. He has at least 3 mistakes in him per 90 mins. Can't wait to see the back of him.

    Ranks up there with Squillaci and Silvestre for me. Although they weren't good for 3 mistakes EVERY game..

    I can't remember them being that bad. Maybe it was because we didn't rely on them to play every single game that's affected my memories of them.

    Plus they came in as cheap backup signings so a great deal wasnt really expected of them. Pound for pound musti is probably our worst signing of all time.

    As much as i want him gone, i have to face reality and face the fact we are stuck with this clown.

    No, your memory is fine. What i mean is that even they weren't that bad and I absolutely hated them both. But they would have 3 good games then 2 bad ones where as Mustafi only seems to have mistakes in him.

    Mustafi could have a good game and ruin it all but doing some dumb ****, at least with Silvestre and Squillaci we knew they were ****. Mustafi has some quality there he's just brain dead.

    This is it actually. EXACTLY!
    For almost every game there are signs that he could be a decent defender but then the mistake comes and completely erases any memory of any decent challenge, interception or anything worthwhile.

    How is Kola even getting blamed for this goal? He blocked a shot. If he wasnt there and it had scored then he could be blamed. Mustafi saw the flight of the ball early and still got beaten to it then was nowhere near his man when it came back.

    Completely agree mate. Not much he could have done about it! Mustafi on the other hand could have done plenty.

    WOW, a clean sheet with Mustafi. Feels like a trophy. Thought he was pretty brave last night. Awesome defensive headers and not too much brain farting.
