Sokratis and Lichsteiner are vocal leaders, the kind that will assume control and command on the pitch

Lichsteiner will not be first choice but hopefully he can have a big influence on the other defenders in training, especially bellerin.

Xhaka and mustafi made the most individual errors leading to goals in the league last season. Hopefully some coaching will put an end to that. Assuming they are still here

I think Sokratis is Kos replacemnt, he will martial the defence, thats why mustafi will stay.
I wouldnt let Granny anywhere near the defence



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

you broke down what be done very well but time will tell if Unai will achieve this successfully. it's pretty obvious from the players we signed that he is well aware of our weaknesses.

considering how PSG threw away 4 goal advantage, i wondered if Emery would be able to sort out our defensive woes but like i said, only time will tell.

great article away.

I still think Kos will get into the team sheet once back from injury. Kos and Sokratis will play together foe a while.

It would be extremely risky for Arsenal to depend upon Kos returning to action in any capacity. It is far more likely that his playing career at a top level is over.

It has been reported for several years that Kos has been suffering from chronic Achilles tendonitis in both ankles. Given his latest injury, I believe that it is more likely that he has been suffering from tendonosis. This condition is a gradual weakening and degeneration of the interior structure of the tendons themselves. Tendonosis occurs more frequently in athletes who play sports that involve repetitive sprinting and jumping like basketball and football. In some cases, the tendons eventually degenerate to the point where they become so structurally deficient that they can become prone to rupture. I am guessing that this is exactly what happened to Kos.

Recall the specific moment when Kos tore his Achilles. He was not jumping for a header, planting his foot for a sudden change of direction, or even sprinting to catch an attacker. No, it ruptured AFTER the play was over and he was walking back up the pitch. Walking! This evidences a catastrophic injury caused by a worn and thinning tendon that simply gave out under no direct strain. That is very significant ... especially when you factor in that the exact same condition has been occurring in the achilles tendon in the other ankle as well.

Kos is damaged goods. It is a damned shame for him and Arsenal. Nobody's fault.
It would be reckless for us to include him in any long-term plans at the Club.

Absolutley Tigerline, I agree, Kos will be be bit part at the best.
I have problems with achilles for years now, and the memory has gone from tendons in left leg, I can manage with a strapped up foot, but disasterous for an athlete running and turning at speed.
The demands of playing at a high level for Arsenal, will, in my opinion, prove to be a costly sacrifice for him.

Tigerline has said it all.

Better to cut our ties with Kos. His best is gone. We need all the cash we can get offloading him to whoever wants to gamble on him.
