Cheerio Laurent Koscielny.
Was lovely to have you.
The best of a terrible bunch of players.
One of the few standouts in a banter era.
But ultimately, he’s the sort of defender the cucks loved. Or the fans that were unfortunate enough to come of age during the Wenger decline.
So often at the heart of terrible moments during our seasons. I’ll still remember that league cup final. The red cards. The penalties. And finally, going on strike.
He wasn’t captain material. Behind the scenes he’s been described to me as a difficult character and high maintenance. He also came for the easy life, which so many viewed as the ‘he loves us’ path. You saw in the end what mattered most to Laurent… Laurent.
Raul and Edu have done a great job. They’ve brought in a fee, they’ve moved on a disruptive figure, they’ve avoided Arsenal having to rely on a 33 year old that’s past it.
Now we have to bring in a defender.
It is getting silly now. We’re 48 hours from a deadline day melee. We have signed ZERO defenders. It’s getting so bad, Neil Lennon is trying to sell us on the fitness of Tierney. Upemecano is on then it’s off, then it’s on. Rugani reports read like a Mustafi shaped nightmare. Then there’s literally no one else causing smoke.
I am LOVING that we are still being linked with Coutinho, but that doesn’t solve our problems. We’re like the Fast Show guy.
‘Did you get me a left back and a sturdy centre back?’
‘Even better than that. I have Coutinho!’
‘You are fucking kidding me’
Not that anyone turns down a player of that genius, but come on, once the HYPE settles and we’re left with the same defence as last season with Xhaka as our captain, reality is going to bite… we just lost our minds this summer.
Still, we’ll be fun to watch.
Let’s see what today brings. The ITKs are out in force trying to see if they can get one over the paywall crowd… I truly HOPE someone has something right. We need a big centre back. We need a left back with pace and power. We need to do something to help a manager who is going to need all the support he can get this season.
Fingers crossed. See you on Twitter. x
