    Re: Wayne Bridge on loan?

    Given Gibbs' injury record, I expect him to either get injured again or not able to come back for several more months. Miquel has done a marvellous job so far considering his experience and playing out of position. But we do need a natural LB who can offer more offensive support for the rest of the season. Not saying Bridge is the answer because my main concern is he hasn't played competitively for half a year. Just that at the moment, I don't trust Miquel to get into top 4, which should be our main objective this season.

    Of course Santos was a panic buy.

    Hyperbole as always MD. It's not true to say Santos "cannot defend". He's actually done well up until point he was injured.

    Complete myth. Santos is class.

    I agree - even though it seems to be a running joke. Santos is a decent LB and his stats hold that up.

    Bridge even on loan? no thanks - I'm sure we could even find someone from the Oman 2nd division who'd be better........oh wait......

    Santos wasn't a panic buy. He was a replacement for Traore who has confirmed he wanted to leave before the Manure game so Wenger has been looking for a replacement for awhile before deciding it was Santos.

    Arteta was a panic buy

    Santos makes lots of dodgy decisions in his own half. He's class on the ball, but I don't buy in to the fact that hes a great defender. Now, I'd much rather have him starting over Gibbs, but that's more my complete lack of faith in Gibbs than my praise of Santos.

    As a backup, he's fine. Wayne Bridge is not fine. In any role.

    Re: Wayne Bridge on loan?

    My biggest problem is that the level we are currently aiming for is so low.

    Santos is a good fullback for a mid table side. We're ****ing Arsenal. We should have a top class LB, and a top class backup. Gibbs has promise, sure, but the decision to just hand him the starting spot and not make him earn it or prove he could even stay fit for one whole season was crazy, and highlights the problems in our team.

    We lack ambition as a club. We sell our best players. We do not attempt to buy world class talents befitting of a world class club. We aim to do just enough to keep our top 4 spot. For me, its unacceptable. I blame the Board and I blame Wenger.

    We're Arsenal. We should not be wasting our time with the likes of Wayne Bridge, who hasn't been a consistent, quality performer in years. We shouldn't be wasting our time with no name players from Oman. We should be filling the 25 man squad with the best players we can.

    The club has fallen in the last 6 years. And we're going to continue to fall until something massive happens internally. Its just not good enough.

    Arteta wasn't a panic buy. He was a replacement for Fabregas who has confirmed he wanted to leave early in the summer so Wenger has been looking for a replacement for awhile before deciding it was Arteta.

    (All our deadline day purchases were panic buys).

    Thing was, Santos was hardly a deadline day signing right? He was confirm a week before the deadline iirc

    Nah, he was a deadline day signing. Could have been the day before when the news broke but a panic buy he was.
