    they can’t find someone to pay a small fee so he can move on and the club can save face?

    Not that I felt another way or turned a corner, but shit like this just proves that we remain completely broken.

    We are going to concede over 60 goals this season.

    I don’t understand the big deal? His minutes are likely taking a huge step back this coming season And/or he’ll play cups & Europa early stages. We need him as a makeweight, as we introduce his replacement.

    We extended him during his rehab, when he had no options. Kos can fuck off & deal with his role, or lower his wage demands so we can get an appropriate fee.

    It's just that he's a captain and a crowd favorite for the past 9 years. His game was certainly down the shitter last year.

    I’m happy that the club aired this dirty laundry. We were to nice/soft for too long under Wenger.

    We hold the cards. He’s under contract & has a diminished role, despite being one of our 5 “Captains”. If he wants to be a twat, have him train by himself & just use him for out Europa games in Eastern Europe

    I have a lot of respect for what Kos has played through and sacrificed at Arsenal. it’s obvious his body isn’t up to it anymore but I guess he doesn’t want to hang them up completely. assuming this didn’t come out of nowhere I don’t understand why the club couldn’t have come up with a plan to move on already.

    And it's one less layer to Mustafi. I realize business can be done but I'm not holding my breath.

    I feel Bielik may be at least as good as Mustafi. Why not take a punt on him?!

    He's not gonna sign a deal if he's gonna be loaned out. I think he either stays and plays or is sold.

    Not even a good effort by the Sun.

    Hyped for Ornstein on Arsecast tomorrow AM

    Also sad to watch all these nba trades while arsenal just keeps a steady ship. Remember when the Holding Chamber was gonna be the ripest CB duo of all time

    They have the makings of a terrible pairing with how slow they are but 1 of them with Saliba, might be onto something.

    Hopefully Holding had a good surgery and isn't another Badstuber, is a bit worrying how soccer players recover so poorly and Holding-Hector are 2 of our only hopes in defense.

    Holdini - Papa was a pretty solid pairing last year until Holdini went out injured..

    Silver lining, it’s possible David no longer has the inside track at Arsenal with all the turnover.

    Unlikely, but possible.

    We're poor, we need to pay in installments, need CL back in the worst way, Kroenke is the cheapest fuck on this planet, and Tottenham are trying to big boy us when they had half our revenue 4-5 years ago;

    Oh yeah, we're stuck with Mustafi not to mention Ozil and Mkhi making 500k+ a week.
