David Ospina


#141

:smile: In search of his 201th clean sheet :smile:

:thinking::thinking:

Just seen the highlights, he has shocking decision making, no need to be punching a ball at that pace on the first goal.

Our GK situation is really a shambles. Really convinced the guy on loan–Emi–is the best of the lot. Which is low praise/mainly just a reflection of the terrible level of the two at the club, as I wouldn’t even confidently say Emi is Arsenal backup material.


#145

How could you possibly be convinced of that? Or just a statement for effect?


#146

90% of what he says.


#147

Thought he was great tonight.


#148

I don’t think Ospina was particularly bad today or something like that, but I’m looking forward to our new goalkeeper.


#149

Timo already confirmed that he wants to stay with the relegated Koln, and Jonas Hector signed an extention also.
This is “loyalty”, have a chance to move to better place but willing to go down with the club.


#150

Reports here in Argentina says that Boca agreed to a loan for Ospina and it now has to agree on a salary with him.


#151

Yep.


#152

Loan?

Nah, give him a one way ticket.


#153

How long does he left on his contract? I guess that frees up his wages at least to pay Leno, so zero sum.


#154

A year.

Even so we should be able to move him on for a bit of dough, would suck if we can’t even recoup around what we paid but I suppose his wages off the books will have to suffice if there’s truth in this.


#155

Good for him. He goes close to home and can play as first choice.


#156

Give us Pavon in exchange imo


#157

We spent what, 3.5m on him? Fuck me, if we can’t recoup that pittance…


#158

I know right?

Pretty lame if a loan and release is the best we can do for an international keeper.

2m is awful but who cares. More important to move him on.
