It's been a while since I've posted! (several yrs actually). Anyways, Kos has been one of the most controversial arsenal players of recent memory and I have a little theory why. There are several things that he does EXTREMELY well. Enough to get him a national team callup anyways. However he is also unbelievably weak at other areas. This discrepancy between is positive and negative attributes is what is causing so much argument among he fans about whether or not he is any good for Arsenal. The "+": •good attitude-fights for the ball non-stop. Doesn't give up in face of humiliation. •stopper-not many players get the better of him dribbling. •physical-lacking in upper body strength, but makes up with speed and tenacity. Surprisingly good jump for his height. The "-": •poor positioning-mert has shown lacking speed is not a prob if u can read a game well. Kos has been caught out of position far too often to start for a top3 team •strength- under certain scenarios nothing but sheer overwhelming strength will do. Even the manc's Valencia looks more muscular than Kos ATM. He seems to have buffed up a bit but still not good enough. •technique- his first touch is weak, leading to various gifts in key positions to the opposition almost every match. His passing is also not quite where it should be. Because his positives are VERY strong, but his weaknesses are VERY weak, he's a bit of a dilemma whether or not even the youth/reserves might do better in some scenarios. However, he makes a adequate backup for Verminator for now.
