Calum Chambers (On loan)


#361

I don’t have a problem with Chambers leaving. He’s shit. In fact, if we shipped out our whole defense and didn’t replace them, it probably wouldn’t make much of a difference.


#362

I thought this season would be the one for him to make CB for us his own. Thinking all along that Mustafi was destined to leave, it was Cal all along.


#363

I agree he is shite, but we have a pure numbers problem though. Ideally i would like 5 CBs for a full season.


#364

I don’t think 5 shits make a good.


#365

Holding is the one who can play LCB between the two, One of Sokratis,Mustafi and Chambers had to make way, Chambers can regain his spot once we can offload deadwood more efficiently, which is still the main issue here.


#366

Well here it is.

Sokratis Mustafi CB pairing then


#367

Pretty bizarre choice to give him a 4 year contract extension and then loan him out at 23 years of age.


#368

Sokratis Dinos you mean


#369

That’s typically what clubs do prior to loaning out players, protects their investment should the player be sold on after.


#370

Clearly Unai doesnt fancy Chambers. He gave him this pre season to impress and he didnt produce. He would have gotten very limimted gametime anyway, so loaning him out to increase his transfer value seems ok imo.


#371

Lol


#372

Why you laughing, he’s gonna score 20 goals Sham.


#373

Unless we fucking loan him out :xhaka:

Wonder if this is happening so Mustafi plays better as a starter and then we can ship him off next season, allowing Chambers to come back after his loan?


#374

Interesting we loan out Chambers but not Mavropanos


#375

Christ! Hope Emery can coach Mustafi how to defend.


#376

Why not just sell him now ? This loan won’t do anything to increase his transfer value IMO.


#377

If he’s so shit why did Wenger pay 20m (Euros I think) for him? 4 years ago.


#378

Well I think you have answered your own question.


#379

Good point. Bad decisions have never been part of Wenger’s arsenal…
