He’s already started on Alli. Shrewd from the ‘special one’, because, like Pogba, he already had half the fans vilifying him.

He lacked consistency for the top level. Except for Shakhtar and BvB one season, that is the theme of his career. Still a good career overall obviously, but not enough for the absolute top clubs.

Mkhitaryan kinda sums up our recruitment policy post-Fergie. That was the summer Mourinho declared he'd 'signed the best player from Italy, the best player from Germany and the best player from France'. Sounded great at the time, in hindsight, it looks more like we were just throwing money at players with very little consideration to their personalities, desire or actually building a team for the long term.

That really is a pretty unexciting interview though. Which I guess also sums up his time here.

I think it's a shame in general that some players with fantastic skills are not capable of dealing with the pressure that the modern game piles upon them.

Hat trick for him today. Seems to be doing well in Serie A after being massive disappointment at two clubs in premier league.

Thought he might still be on loan so Arsenal could get decent fee for him next summer but seems he left on free transfer last summer.

He's generally good. I think the slower pace of the league suits him.

Lukaku and Mkhitaryan in the attack is probably worst nightmare fan of one club can have.

Darmian, Young, Sanchez, Mkhitaryan, Lukaku :lol:

Would not be surprised if Lingard was getting a phone call right about now.

Mhky started the trend of us thinking we'd signed a player for the right wing, only to find out they prefer left or central.

Mhky, Sanchez, Sancho and probably a few others.
