Loan Gibbs out

Lets be honest here. This boy is very inexperienced and he hasnt been exposed for the poor defender he is due to injuries. I believe he's very similar to Djourou in that injuries have made his reputation grow and alot of people havent noticed how poor he is as he rarely plays. Next season we should buy a proper left back like Dennis Aogo and let Gibbs have 1 season loan in the PL so he can prove himself and more importantly learn his trade.

We cant afford to let another player learn his trade in the first team next season and pay the price for it. Gibbs has less than 20 starts in the PL and will be 23 start of next season. Footballing wise he's like a 19 year old defender. i know the first team spot is reserved for him and Santos was brought in as they thought he wasnt gonna be challenge. But buying a proper left back is my nr 1 priority for next season

I'll never be conviced he's a left back. He's a left mid or CM.

He is a left midfielder, just failed to make it and was told when he was in the reserves he should play left back as it will increase his chances to make it. just shows you how our club has no respect for the art of defending and think anyone can do a job there

whats so great about gibbs? whats he ever done for us apart from get injured?

hes just another average player in our starting 11 - along with arteta, ramsey, walcott.

the players we have who are good enough to play for arsenal are chesney, Per (very solid and in a good team is fine, look at him for germany), Verm, Kos, Sagna, Song (only if strictly played as a DMC), Ox and RVP.

Jury's still out on gervinho.

thats 8 out of 11. we need 3 world class players in this summer to go into the first team and to keep all those stated above.

get rid of squillaci, arshavin, diaby, denilson, bentdner etc at any price. theo, arteta and ramsey can stay as back up.

Djorou? dont get me started.
