Please tell me we only signed him on a year contract? Worst player in the squad currently. Things are bad when you start thinking Jenkinson would be the better option as he’s a championship level player at best. But what does that say about Lichsteiner?

I agree, I find myself thinking Jenks is not that bad. Is it a delusion?



- 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.

Reported one year deal fortunately.

Emery took a gamble with him as a cover, hoping to buy one year grace to search for another RB or a youth can step up into senior squad.

But nobody expected us to be so badly hit by injuries to the Back-4.
That unfortunately cannot be planned for unless you have a Sugar Daddy to buy you 2 world-class players fore very position.

Just unfortunate none of the youths are ready to step-up and AMN just is not up to scratch as RB or wingback.

He has apparently been voted our second-worst defensive signing of the last 20 years with 32% of the vote, 1% less than actual "winner" Squillaci.

Worse than Stepanovs?

Or Andre Santos. The worst defensive player i've ever seen at Arsenal.

He did grab a few goals. I guess Kolasinac is a slight better version

Cygan took some beating as well, but Lichsteiner even makes him look like Maldini.

Silvestre was the worst of the lot, worse than Squillaci in my view. Looking back it's actually quite funny that Wenger had him and a 35-year-old Sol Campbell in central defence when we were trying to win the league.

Wenger shouldn't have been allowed to sign centre-backs. He's only ever signed about four decent ones - Campbell, Toure, Koscielny and Mertesacker. He averages one good centre-half every five years.

I won't consider Mertesacker a good defender. He is slow and despite his height, weak in the air. And Toure was converted from a DM to a CD. But I agree with u Wenger should not be allowed to buy defensive players with his poor transfer track record.
