    I mean I understand their point of view. They agreed that Arsenal has to pay 2.5m if he plays 1/3 of the games. This clause is that he plays enough. And they played him more than 1/3 of the time but now the season is over.

    We're the ones taking all the risk letting him play for them after the loan contract is up, so there's gotta be a compromise on their side. **** 'em.

    Unluckeeeee we all lose money because of Corona. How many more transfers are there with play x amount of games or score x amount of goals that are not fulfilled in France or Holland who ended the comps early. Boehoe, **** happens. Go complain at your FA.

    Watched a re-run of St Etienne’s cup semi final win over Monaco last night just to scout Saliba.

    Must say he looked impressive. Physically very dominant. Composed, read the game well and can pass. Reminded me a little bit of a young Rio Ferdinand.

    The boss here reminding us why Saliba should play next season. He'll make mistakes, but it's the right thing to do.

    Saliba will be starting but he still needs a good partner. Although maybe he and Luiz could work. Time will tell.

    Would listen to Wenger explain to me the best way to peel a banana. What a great man.

    Saliba is getting abused after his first loss in the Arsenal shirt, no doubt about it.

    It's not just that - it's also the desperation borne out of our fall from grace post-Wenger. Fans are living on their nerves because they want to see us back in the CL and challenging for trophies as soon as possible, partly because they don't want to deal with the corn that we give out to other clubs and teams.

    Ending up lower than you normally would be lends itself to short term thinking to get yourself back to where you were and beyond. While I encourage a more long term approach and have done for a while, it does not surprise me that people don't care about that, especially now when we are the worst we have been for a long time.

    It doesn't help that he's been hyped up so much. Most people haven't watched him play, yet the expectations for him are sky high. It's not reasonable to expect a teenage cb to be a starter, very few are good and mature enough for that, but it seems if he can't do that people will be disappointed.

    Can he play against Watford?

    People who have watched him play say that he's very good. He'll make mistakes, but he's good enough to be playing a lot of games for us next season. It's risk vs reward. We suffer a short-term risk, but long-term we stand to gain an elite CB for years to come.

    I'd have him and Luiz as our CB partnership next season, with Mari and Chambers as back-ups.

    Ideally we'll buy a new 1st choice cb. If that doesn't happen I'm all for giving Saliba the chance, I love his physical profile and have high hopes for him after what I've heard. I just have this feeling he's not going to be trusted as a starter straight away and it's going to lead to disappointment or undervaluing his talent when it really shouldn't..
