You have to hope that next season, we have Europe and that White/Gabriel/Saliba are the three main CBs, with Holding and Tomiyasu providing cover. That's a very good crop of CB's tbh.

I really want to share everyone's optimism about the potential of Saliba's return, but one of the clear giveaways of his inevitable sale or potential transfer out of the club is the fact his shirt number was just handed over to the new CB with less potential,

As insignificant as some of you would believe it is, for me it's a clear indication that the current regime have no plans for him, you don't announce players with saucy introduction edits then two seasons later revoke the shirt it was built on...this is a major cock up by the club.

I just watched a highlight of his performance against PSG. Seems like the club is responsible for some of the biggest mismanagement of a young player in the last 5 years or so.
How do you spend 50 mil on White when you have this guy waiting to come in and lock attackers up in the league? Boggles the mind.

Saliba has the best attributes of Gabriel and White in one player. However he obviously doesn't have a personality that Arteta can manage. I am desperately hoping Arteta can rectify this as it will be so disappointing to lose such a world class talent who could potentially lead our defence over the next decade as a result of personality/political reasons.

I, on the other hand, am desperately hoping he gets sacked before the season ends so we don't lose a quality CB and we can play actual attacking football. :lol:

The problem here is Saliba is at a stage now where he knows he starts for a lot of other clubs so he'll need assurances before he commits here.

Arteta will only assure him of 95% chance of a place in the side for next season :). Saliba will leave and then Ben White will then be linked with a move away the following season.

I hope it's been agreed he takes #2 when Bellerin is sold. It's what he's wearing at Marseille. Or that White switches to #2. Or that Saliba doesn't care about shirt numbers since he's elite and doesn't actually need a shirt.

He makes defending sexy ffs.

I hate Arteta
Even though he did well there, I'm most impressed with his passing ability and calmness on the ball.

Arteta forces the team to play it from the back, and at the same time, he sends out on loan his best CB on the ball and plays Mari and Holding who are scared to death when receiving the ball... Arteta is so dumb it's unbelievable

The hope has to be that Saliba is so good on loan that he becomes impossible to ignore or sell - either because the other Arsenal higher ups overrule Arteta, or because he realises that Saliba is going to be winning him football matches.

Or Zidane only takes the job on condition that Saliba is recalled.

Saliba already proved himself impossible to ignore nearly 2 and a half years ago which promoted us to go out and spend £30 million on a teenage CB.

I have the dreaded feeling he will sold. Which will be sickening because it won't be because he's not good enough, but because Arteta. Hope I'm wrong.

Some Artetasexuals tried to claim that it was a "dodgy deal" and that we spent to much money on him. We didnt. He is the real deal and have always been. The White signing looks more and more like a big joke.
