Re: Selling players

Over the past two or three seasons I know myself and a number of others have become pretty indifferent to the characters in our squad. Giroud, Ramsey and Welbeck were probably the last three I "liked" but have all left. Now I have a real "meh" feeling towards our players. Aside from talent and ability there's a lack of characters and personalities.

This sums it up for me mate. 'Meh' is the perfect word and I couldn't agree more. There isn't a single Arsenal player I'd feel tempted to stop and ask for a photo if they walked past me in the street. I wouldn't tell the lads, or come on here and say anything about it. It'd just be like, 'Oh that's Mkhitaryan' and I'd forget about it.

I find watching Arsenal games to be a bit of a chore these days personally. Scoring big goals doesn't get me out of my seat. I don't feel nervousness in my stomach when we're trying to protect a lead with a few minutes left and they're in and around our penalty area. I sort of miss it.

I stopped identifying with the players a long time back now.
