If we're talking Burnley defenders, i'd go for the other chap, Tarkowski.

Both have looked very good though

f**k it, get both

Just football isn't his thing.

A shame.

Wish him well in his future endeavours.


Being ‘a nice chap’ has never been a good trait to have as a CB. The best CBs I can think of have been nasty b...ards!

Devastating injury for Kos.....he sure looked in a hell of a lot of pain! At least he's got the summer to try and heal and personally I'd like to see him back, however realistic enough to know its unlikely he can be the player he once was for us.

He hasn't looked good for a while now, he was definitely world class a few years ago, now he is a shell of a man. I can't see him returning anywhere near the form that map him top level. Shame really. We can't let sentiment hold us back, need to plan for life without him, he is getting way too many injuries.

Mis-management by Wenger ? You bet your arse !!!

This is a sad farewell.


Yep, he died for our sins (of not spending).

I remember when Koscielny donated money to save his local accordion factory, top man all 'round.


didnt know that. class. :1970_two_smileys_drinking_beer_together.gif:

I don't think Kos will play for us again - similar scenario to Santi. He's been poor for a while and the due to the injuries he's no longer as quick as he was which is something he could always count on.

Defensively we need a complete overhaul - Bellerin can go as well as Mustafi - Both have been exposed a number of times.

Jenas said he got a torn Achilles once. Was out for 6 months and not fully fit for another 6 after that.

That's a year.

Add our medical staff

We won't see Kos again til 2020 if at all.

Get rid

He and Santi both need to retire immediately.

I don't understand all this carrying injured players in our team because you feel sorry for them and you feel this is the last big club they can play for especially when said players aren't even legends. I might make exception for legends but not people like Kos.

Even though he had talent we carried Rosicky for ages too. Not even a legend.
