Watching Bissouma today....kept on for the 90 minutes (manager needs to be certain - Son et al., subbed off early doors. Kane not even there)....looked lost and ignored....acres of space and his team mates didn't pass to him....did some nice bits and bobs, but when robbed, ironically it was followed by a Spuds goal....little boy ignored face in the goal celebration huddles...

And Cuco looking like he's auditioning for the bench . . . .

Tross was good recently in his second Arse game, but he's never been able to maintain a level....

And Maupay is going daaaaaahn!

Put a few years in at the Albion. Win a trophy. Get capped for your country....

Win a world cup, even.

Don't be a tit when you have played 20 odd games for us, 5 of them excellent, and imagine the future is made. One good contract, bench time, some cup run outs....and then it will be off to Hull, or a French 'Ligue suprême' side, and some Europa League qualifier glory.

You became brilliant because you were at a brilliant club. Lallana knows this. Dunk knows this.

And.....exhale.

I was pondering earlier whether we’d ever consider an offer to bring Biss back if someone reaches whatever Uncle Tony has decided is the right ‘silly fee’ to take Caicedo. I know never go back etc, but I don’t think he’s become a bad player overnight, and you’d think Spurs might take the chance to get most of their money back. As one of my favourite ever players I’d love to see him back in the stripes.

I was thinking the same. On the X axis is 'oh, what have I done?' and on the Y axis is 'how much money would my agent, sorry, I lose, if I went back?'.

I am reminded of Brass Eye: Fact times interest equals News!

Agree with all of that, I’d love him back too. Quite a few have forgotten just how good he was.

The exception. There always has to be one. And indeed, so.....he left without rancour or rigmarole. A standard transfer.

And anyway, we only had him on loan from Leeds. I am one of the few who saw him play for us in the flesh. Most of our supporters barely know who he was. His career path has been a good path.

He may even play regularly for England, one day.

Now try explainng that to a football agent (or to an impressionable but maybe not too bright young PL footballer who's been spoken to by his agent). You might as well try to explain to Putin the downsides of invading an independent peaceful nation that has no desire to threaten or harm you, any more than you could convince Watford Zero that the Brexit vote wasn't about people voting for unicorns! :lolol:

The same Ben White (overpriced) the Arsenal fans grizzled about, utter rubbish, and why did we buy him and send Saliba out on loan?
The same Ben White who was shunted out to RB as soon as Salibi came back to partner Gabriel?
....to RB, where Arsenal are looking to bring in a new one?
The same Ben White who is no more getting picked for the England squad (but never played) than when he was at Leeds unless the clueless manager's hand is forced by late withdrawals?

Oh, that Ben White! Still, guess he's happy!

I'd rather our players give their heads a wobble. but anyway....

As it happens....Moises....26 BHA games under his belt....looking at a +£60 million transfer....we have other players and, frankly, I wouldn't recognise Ciaskedo, or however it is spelt, on the street....yet. Why don't we just sell him if Charsenal are that desperate?

I am really not that bothered.

Weirdos.

There is a game later. Bring It On!

Again I feel the need to point out Biss' performance yesterday looked lacklustre to us but every indication suggests he was doing exactly what his manager asked of him.

He wasn't lost and ignored last night, it's just that his job for Conte isn't 'be the lynchpin for the whole team/squad/club'.

Yep, perfect replacement for Caicedo….in the Summer.
