  1. Oh how we could do with Jenkinson right now. Madness to send him on loan–clearly! Very happy for the lad of course with the progress he’s making, but honestly

    1. It was a smart and correct decision from all three parties. Very, very far from “madness”. West Ham needed a decent player, Kalle needed regular matches and Arsenal needed to evaluate Kalle as a full season player before making decisions next summer and also to increase Kalle’s market value. Bellerin was left as a third-choice right back, so there’s plenty of cover.

      The stupid media muppets are moaning about why Arsenal didn’t sign another centre-back. There are many logical scenarios… perhaps the primary targets were not available or they were overvalued, perhaps a pre-contract was organized last summer for the January or next summer move. Chambers showed very good performances last summer as a centre-back and he is capable of being the third-choice CB. The possible fourth-choice CBs are either extremely young or very old without motivation and future. I don’t know how highly-rated Hayden is, but if he has decent potential then it is smart to keep him as a 4th choice CB and not getting another experienced player to block his path.

      The financial and squad regulations and limitations should always be considered and the football industry is not a supermarket, slave market or FM15 where people can be moved easily. Somehow the media muppets usually forget that Arsenal is not the only club in the footballing world searching for the players and there are also player’s and his family’s wishes.

      1. Arsenal made a bid for Van Dyck on the last hours of the transfer window. So clearly they knew they needed more cover.

        And just in case you think they didnt know a long time ago, what they needed, note the date of this article below:

        June! Describing a problem that apparently Arsenal had know of the entire last season. And Arsenal knew he would not get rest in a world cup year, nor would Mertesacker. Both are 29 or 30.

        Clearly Wenger never intended to use Ajayi or Hayden either, as he has played the undersized Monreal ahead of them too..

        You still want to make excuses?
