    I understand your frustrations, but he plays for team at the top of Omani top division. Omani, but still, top division :lol: get your facts right people :oops:

    Re: Wayne Bridge on loan?

    Can someone please explain to me how Santos has been anything less than class for us thus far? He's twice the player that useless pile of turd (Clichy) was and is, and our best football this season has had him heavily involved in it. Sure, he's not the quickest, but he's good in the tackle and physically strong. Great signing. Gibbs will be our long term eventually, but Santos is an amazing back-up/competitor. I just cannot believe that Wenger played the ****er in that MEANINGLESS game in Greece :evil: :evil:

    Santos ''looks ok'' as a back up? :lol: He's been excellent, calm and composed when defending and great going forward. This is a player that Barcelona were sniffing around earlier in the summer.

    That's why I said he was ok.
    I wasn't saying he wasn't ok, but it's hard to judge a player after only a handful of starts.
    But Gibbs looks a liability and after having so many players out with long term injuries in recent seasons, for what ever reason, I think we need reliability and consistency and Gibbs doesn't give us that.

    2/3 Seasons ago I thought Gibbs was going to be the new Ashley Cole but if spends most of his time injured then there is no point.
    We have enough players taking up space and wages that aren't up to it without another one.

    So keep Santos and get another decent LB

    That's how he looks with the ball, when defending he looks rash and disorientated. I do like him though.

    It's a myth that he can't defend. Please go back and watch. Being 'caught upfield' isn't so much an individual lack of quality than it is a collective fault of the team.

    Re: Wayne Bridge on loan?

    Which part of what I said do you disagree with? I didn't say he can't defend. His tackling technique is certainly rash and unorthodox (not saying that he doesn't win many of those tackles) the way he leaps into challenges. Even when back, he does tend to get caught out of position losing his man at times.

    Re: Wayne Bridge on loan?

    I am a Santos fan but he is defensively suspect. He needs to learn to jockey his man along the touchline rather than just dive in. His physicality is refreshing, but he makes far too many unnecessary fouls for my liking.

    What is wrong with Bridge on loan? If he comes its just as cover until our other fullbacks return.

    Would much prefer an attacking player though, I think that is our most pressing need.

    Bridge was quality not too long ago. Surely as an emergency LB he's fine?

    N.B. I still despise the c*nt for knocking us out in 2004. That smug smile in his celebration...

    Re: Wayne Bridge on loan?

    If only we kept our midfield shape - I watched that goal on YT the other day. For some reason all of our midfielders pushed over to our left side to deal with a Chelsea throw in, and they subsequently shifted it over to our vacated right side of the pitch, where Bridge drove into space and one-two'd it with someone and then scored.

    I'm sure we'd have won the CL that year if we beat Chelsea.

    Wayne Bridge is horrible, maybe he used to be decent but he's not any more. He hasn't even played a competitive match in almost a year and even then he was diabolical on loan at West Ham.

    I'd rather play Miquel LB than have Wayne Bridge.

    Re: Wayne Bridge on loan?

    That's the key point here, our midfield shape.
    The absense of Gilberto in this game and the FA Cup SF did cost us on both occasions.

    No question there, I'm convinced as well that the CL title would have been ours to lose that season, had we beaten Chelsea.

    Re: Wayne Bridge on loan?

    True about Bert. Ljungberg seemed to be the main culprit for that goal, he lost focus and drifted far too central. He should have been looking out for Bridge's run.

    Re: Wayne Bridge on loan?

    I don't think I could handle it, if I watched some footage of this game again after all those years.

    Btw, it just dawned on me that we'd have played against Milwall in the FA Cup Final had we beaten ManUre in 2004.
    Just two wins short of a huge chance of securing a triple with the best ever Arsenal side.

    Yep, it's truly painful. It probably would have been touted as THE greatest club side ever.

    Re: Wayne Bridge on loan?

    The thing is, it's all well and good saying that he won't be a bad signing on loan, which is true in a sense but we're gonna have to nurse the guy back to match fitness which is gonna take weeks, then you have to factor in he hasn't even played all season, it's riskier than people think, I'd rather use Miqule than give this reject time and effort to get fit only for him to more than likely prove what we all knew in the first place, that he is in fact a **** full back.
