    Clean sheet and a win for Nice today, Saliba played well it seems. Loan working out as planned so far.

    Looking at how well Fofana is doing at Leicester despite being rated less than Saliba, has me thinking wtf is going on at this club?

    Fofana is better overall and didn't have difficult year off the pitch like Saliba. We didn't need Saliba this season our defense 4th most solid in PL so better let Saliba develop far from the chaos of squad

    Good to see him playing well, we might be able to get our money back at this rate. Shame the club rated Mustafi higher.

    Why? He has a future here. Just like Edu aswell as Arteta have said numerous times.

    People keep bringing up that Arteta is at fault here.

    Can't people understand that putting a teenager CB who has just lost his parent(s?), to the deep end with our hyeena fanbase, is not a good thing.

    I believe you guys when Saliba comes back and he has to be sold because he hates Arteta.

    You have a point, our fanbase are largely idiots - but there’s been no fans.

    I don’t think sticking a bib on him and putting him in the U23s when he was clearly brought in to play senior football was the right way to deal with him either.

    Looking at some of the players still in the squad and watching Saliba perform in France, Arteta’s actions look largely petty honestly.

    Yeah, plus the scenario laid out by @drippin is really like the worst possible situation that could've happened and I find it hard to imagine Saliba would be that bad considering how he's looked in France.

    Even if he wasn't great I don't even think the fans would get on his case that badly (the majority btw, there'd still be a minority up in arms about anything).

    As for Arteta looking petty; I don't really know what he was thinking with Saliba, I honestly don't, he seems to have a preoccupation with certain ordinary players and seemingly doesn't fancy others (that are no worse) for no particular reason.

    No fans in the stadium doesn't matter in this case. Stadium fans are not usually the idiots.

    Psyche is a precious thing, and it can be ruined. So even if the statement is true, that he now performs in France, the decision not to play him earlier in Arsenal, can still be the totally correct one.

    I don't see it probable even at this point that Arteta and Saliba have a bad relationship or a big problem. If Saliba can't understand Arsenal management decisions, his professionalism has to questioned. He is a teenager still.

    Saliba will get a lot of game time after his loan, and then there will be no Mustafi or Sokratis or Chambers etc.
