He’s bloody awful, isn’t he?
Proven shyte now even with Emery? Anyone?
Mourinho destroyed him. lol
He's capabale of doing one or two decent things per game, but yeah, mostly he's crap.
He is unbelievably shitty.
But at least he plays unlike the guy we traded for him.
He didn't. But he did screw up by signing such a fragile player.
Yes he's having a very bad time but at least he doesn't seem to go in complete hiding. He keeps trying (and failing). We seriously need to go get someone to try and replace him & Welbeck in one go. Not sure it can be done in January though...
This swap deal ended up being a clusterfeck for both teams.
Wasn't Welbeck playing quite well prior to the injury? I've only seen bits of Arsenal this season, but Welbeck looked decent from the little I had seen.
Yeah my biggest problem with Mourinho is that he's no clairvoyant too.
I really thought he'd be our KDB - their mentalities are worlds apart.
Their abilities are worlds apart.
I still rate him. With his style he's always going to look like a tit when it doesn't come off, but I think he's a valuable player to have in a good system.
Anyways was probably our best player in that Europa League win, so he's added at least some value to the club. More so than many that have passed through, who might have lasted a bit longer. So its hard to feel bitter about him.
He turned out to be a player everyone knew he was and expected him to be. What a surprise. Only our and Arsenal's board couldn't see it for some reason, and of course part of the fans who would sign every player in the world.
Mentally weak, in fact, I don't think I can remember a player other than Kleberson who was as mentally weak as Mhki.
Shame really as he's got bags of ability.
I didn't think it was possible for both teams to regret a transfer but here we are
Well at least we've got somebody who can tinkle the ivories at the next staff knees-up.
Current state of those two you could do worse than Worzel Gummidge.
At least his body is sexier than KdB
Only if you like pregnant men!
This is true lol
Really? Surprised that's a stretch for posters who feel he achieved a miracle by finishing 2nd.
I’ll always remember the 17/18 season as a miracle season. It’s up there with our treble winning season, for me.
Wasn't it our slow pace game that was stopping him from achieving big things?
Yes Welbeck was doing alright before the injury, but even then he needed replacing. Now he's out for the season, out of contract, 28y old.. Anything north of 15M and i'd ship him out and try our luck with someone new.
What?? 15M for a player who spent last 4 years getting injured multiple times and is on last year of the contract?
I remember being one of a very little bunch who were against signing him initially. His outcome here and at Arsenal doesn't surprise me. I'd say 99% were delighted at the signing at the time.
Also, people like to have a go at Ed for not getting José a RW but Mkhi is one. It's not Ed's fault José's a poor judge of talent.
I wouldn't say 99%, but at least 80% welcomed him, which was still a surprise for me. I didn't see him a lot, but expected him to fail considering his mentality. I also couldn't understand why would be pay 30-40m euros for questionable player in his last year of contract, but many said Woodward did a great deal for some reason .
I mean, he couldn't take a pressure in Bundesliga playing for Dortmund, it was obvious he will never work at transition team such as United.
He's not got what we need. I hope we can ship him out.
Welbeck will end up at West Ham or Everton.
Out for 6 weeks - fractured metatarsal
Don't think Arsenal will miss him too much but ma that's gotta be one painful injury
Have a friend who wants him sold.
Another weird signing by Jose in hindsight. I know he was brilliant for Dortmund but lacks the physicality you'd usually associate with a Jose attacking midfielder/10
He had one brilliant season for Dortmund. His last one.
He had a horrible one as well and one meh one. Certainly was a mistake to sign him considering his poor mentality. But I say that with the benefit of hindsight.
He doesn't lack physicality.
He has every tool to be a top player but just isn't. I think he hides when things don't go well.
I like him, as a player and as a character, but he belongs at a good midtable team, that's where he'd shine in the PL...
Somewhere like Everton, Watford, Foxes etc.
Seems arsemania has had enough of him too.
Seen a perfect quote from there that sums it up.
Arsenal certainly would have been better to keep Sanchez and in hindsight I bet he'd of stayed as well had he known how his career was about to leap off of a cliff
