And yet Arsene rewarded him with a new contract after a few good performances in an unlikely midfield combination that we can’t play anymore.
I don’t know if any of you folks listen to the ArsenalVision post match podcasts but the host Elliot* hates Coquelin. He savages him so routinely that I find myself wanting to defend Coq.
It’s not Coquelin’s fault that he’s a technically limited player being exposed by playing as one of a two for our Europa League side or as an ostensible shield for a back four where he’s just too prone to make mistakes.
**The podcast is great overall but Elliot is nowhere near as funny or clever as he thinks he is and generally comes off as kind of a douchebag. If he’s lurking on this board I’d love to have the chance to take on some of his ridiculous opinions.
