    You're arguing against developing young players. This is Arsenal ffs, this ain't the club for you if you don't like playing youngsters.

    Exactly, Arsenal fans been asking for a culture change for how long? We need to stop relying and putting so much pressure on young players.

    As an Arsenal fan it feels like we’re in perpetual state of waiting for young players to come good and rarely ever do. Most end up ruined by injuries or leaving the first chance they get.

    Kolo Toure, he was 21 when we signed him...Matthew Upson too, until his injury in 2002, he was given a lot of games that season, had benched Adams and Keown for the spot next to Sol briefly.

    Nah forget that he better come in and perform idc about age. If we pay 35 million for you you have to be a first team player, if not then send him on loan again.

    Ok, well maybe some Arsenal fans feel like that, I happen to like that we are willing to play young players.

    You're definitely a guy who boos in a stadium. I bet you're a booer.

    I bet you’re one of those guys that blames the other team for playing too rough when Arsenal lose.

    We’ve got way more out of players we bought than players we grew ourselves tbh. I wouldn’t mind it but we’re just not that good at developing players.

    But we did buy Saliba? I don't get it, are you against academy players or just all young players? Cos I can think of a few examples of young players we bought who did quite well for us.

    Actually you’re right I’m chatting sh*t there, what I mean is we should buy more established players with experience instead of relying on youth. At Arsenal feels like we’re always waiting for young/raw players to come good.

    I’d much rather a 27 year old CB with a lower ceiling than an 18 year old that might be good in the future.

    Luckily with Saliba he has experience so he can play right away.

    thought @dashsnow17 was talking to himself, realised I had floppalump on ignore, read the conversation. Almost had an aneurism.

    What a ridiculous thing to say. Backing Saliba to start fully tho ngl, he has insane stats across Europe specifically in aerial duels which is what we sorely lack.

    I'm expecting him to be our VVD type player.

    I see where @BigPoppaPump is coming from here even if I don’t fully agree. It’s a fair point he’s making though.

    We signed Luiz, Sokratis, and Mari. You not happy?

    Its weird that Josh and Stan haven't sacked Raul and Edu already. The biggest talents at the moment are from France. Our reputation is in shambles there. We will struggle signing players from there until Raul and Edu are gone.

    Stop with this VVD stuff, it’s constantly all over Twitter ffs.

    If the club is itching for another VVD then we should have just sent Saliba to the wall and he’d have time to toughen up in the Scottish League.

    I think Saliba will be more like Joe Gomez.

    And Liverpool got him for 3m from the championship.

    The club is neglecting the amount of good players there are in the championship. We could have signed Grealish or Maddison from there a few years back and now they’re out of our price range.
