Bringing Debuchy back from the cold

He was unlucky with injuries in his first year with us.
Compounded that with Bellerin developing rapidly and overtaken him in the pecking order.

But with Bellerin signed on a long-term contract till 2022 and his form dived since last season and is not looking good.

Bellerin's family had returned to Spain, and like Jose Reyes' family, urging him to return to Spain.

Rumors had it that his head had been turned by Barca's wooings, that he told Wenger he wanted to leave and his body language and woeful defending at Anfield pointing out that he is doing a Fabregas'2010 stunt to force a move to Barca.

Worse, WC2018 is around the corner and we can be sure that those Barca players will continue to tap him to force a move in summer 2018.

Bringing back Debuchy from the cold and play him in Europa Cup is a smart move to rebuild his career at Arsenal, with Tafaari Moore and Chambers learning the trade as RB. Perhaps converting Ben Sheaf as RB too.

With an out-of-sort Bellerin not right in the head now, perhaps Wenger may even decide to start Debuchy this weekend!

A fired-up Debuchy determines to salvage his football career is better than a disinterested Bellerin doing a wanderlust on the pitch angling for a move to Barca.

I totally agree. Let the @#$%& join Barca. No one wants to join us or be with us these days. Nothing surprising there. They know that we are a club going backwards. Who would want to join a sinking ship.

Anyways, it's not like we are going to win anything major with Wenger around even if we had the world's best players. He wants to do everything by himself, which does not work in modern football. He should have agreed to work under a director of football who can handle transfer dealings and player contracts.

The guy cares more about fashion than football, check his Facebook feed.

Would not be sad at all to see him gone.

He is not a wing back. His head was probably turned but that about the reason he took that touch.
In one of the moves he waz the one who ran back and tried to clear to back off the line and was trying to most even after we were 3-0 down akready.
But he wasn't give u much as a wing back as he's not great around the box, just solid.

Debuchy is finished and montero finished off chambers as a RB

Another catastrophic tactical error of Wenger's, putting a painfully slow Chambers at RB against Montero whose only asset is literally his pace.

Back to Bellerin, I think he's talented but just doesn't have a clue what he's supposed to be doing under Wenger. In 6 months he's played RB, wing back and now f.ucking left back just to appease a want away winger by playing him RWB.

I say give Debuchy a chance.

I saw Debuchy when he played for Lille, the French team and Newcastle all those years. Maybe he's much older and injuries have ravaged him, but that Debuchy is a proper rightback. If he is fit, he should play because Bellerin and Chambers suck! That is IF he is fit.
