Kolasinac: Should he Stay or Should he Go?

When we signed him I was excited. We needed a left side back up to Nacho and Kolsianc fitted the bill precisely.

Able to play in midfield but a specialist full back, voted into the Bundesliga Team of the Season,signing on a free – it seemed to good to be true and on current form it was TGTBT.


He started well, setting up a couple of goals and working well defensively. I thought he would be taking the shirt from Nacho but injury has ruined his AFC career. It was the same at Schalke where he missed time with knee knack. Sead appears to be lacking in confidence and direction. Against Wolves he was dreadful.

Good young LB’s are in much demand, there are few around, hence the stupid money talked about for the Chilwell etc. The demands of the position have developed to the point where one has be blessed with the lungs of a marathon runner, the strength of a boxer and the crossing ability of Georgie Armstrong.

Nicknamed the Wardrobe, I was hoping for something from Heals, I would have accepted a top of the range one from IKEA but instead it appears we have have a chipboard self-assembly from Homebase.

Either Sead must improve or he will be skipped.

    Cheers, BR.
    I’d give him until the end of the season to benefit from the new coaching.
    Maybe he’s carrying too much weight, hence the injuries.

    Nowadays a left back needs to be a converted winger with gonads. A Lauren, AC. But I think Wardrobe will do for now and will improve. Nacho took time. What about budding someone from the Academy. Wasn’t someone called in train a few weeks ago.

    Hmmmm, shame old ones aren’t……….

    Yeah Kolasinac, big disappointment against Wolves, I expected that would be the game in which Emery’s special charm would do its thing and Sead would come out, much like a chrysalis to a butterfly, and be the LB we all hoped he would. But alas no; he looked like he would be more suited to a building site.

    Chilwell, no money on that one for me but another Spanish speaker, oh yes, I would back that in big way.

    Thanks for the post, didn’t expect one today.

    LB. Just threw one in to keep the run going. It is no coincidence that our unbeaten run has been whilst AA have everyday posts 🙂

    I’ve done a shite one for tomorrow. 🙂

    So I was listening to a new song from Dido and I went onto wiki to read up more about her as I’ve always liked her music….

    “Dido says she is a “diehard” lifelong supporter of Premier League football club Arsenal F.C.”

  9. LB says:

    Even more reason to like her.

  10. LB says:

    In fact, we need a post for Monday, so I reckon she could do the honourable thing and get writing.

    VP. A few seasons ago with every pre match I added a famous Arsenal supporter, there were loads especially in the music business. Roger Daltrey has a ST, so does Roger Waters of Pink Floyd.

    Ouzi is the “boss” for the French U21s and IMO should be first choice alongside Terrier. Sorry Granit ” best season ” or not, the Hairy Frenchman is the one for me.
    Now for A M-N!
