Bruv, we should advance with or without Sokratis.
Started off poorly against United but he got a lot better
Is he avaliable for the Napoli tie?
Why he shouldn't be?
Was a normal yellow-red card, so of course.
I didn't know how long the suspension for that was.
his reputation has become official
Absolutely love this.
Costly booking today as he's banned now for the games against Watford and Palace after getting his 10th booking.
Watford are especially physical. Hopefully Kos makes it back in time.
This guy is so overrated by Arsenal fans.
I can tell this thread hasn't been used in a few months, anyway, what is everyones true opinion on Sokratis? Imo one of our best central defenders & should be one of our first picked along with Holding (when fit) , Chambers or Kos/Monreal.
If we manage to purchase 1 more cb then he can takeover from Monreal/Kos.
Sokratis gets exposed slightly by the way we defend and our tactics (or lack of them). On the whole, a very good signing though .
Well yeah true but that's certainly not his fault about our defence, when we defend I reckon his generally our best. I am very pleased we signed him for a number of years & can hopefully be our most mature if Kos & Monreal leave soon. I think he already is anyway.
Something is off about this guy. Definitely our best defender at the moment but he has that cold dead stare and I truly wonder if anything is actually going on in his mind. Just a constant white noise with nightmarish visions. Feel like every game he could be sent off.
Think he had very good cameo before ref decided to suck some Madrid dick.
he intercepted everything well, and am glad he got pissed about that card
That reaction was good haha, kicking the ball away in anger, especially in a friendly that probably wasn't a red & I thought that brought us down a notch unfortunately. I don't know, maybe the ref felt like he had to even the game out after their red. Neither I think were a red in a friendly.
He probably is our best defender atm but he does have to calm down a notch near our box. He was our best defender before the red & was playing everything really well. He was paired well with Chambers to start off with I reckon.
Agree, but he has to be smarter on a yellow. He does this too often and hurts the team.
I do agree he does it too often, but that was not a yellow for me in any circumstances, my opinion though.
The ref was begging to even it up; it was preseason and he saw an ideal opportunity, pretty spineless from the ref but it was only preseason so I'm not exactly outraged.
Love what? Some highlight reel crap? Guy is crap when it matters.
I am genuinely asking this, out of curiosity, how many reds did he get with us, no friendlies?
Transfermarkt says none. Two yellow bans for all in all 3 games. WhoScored and the Premier League webpage say the same. No straight red cards at all, no red yellow, 12 yellows in 18/19.
