The only thing Koscielny has done to be disrespectful to the club is play for us for 9 years.
He's a clown and has always been a clown.
Multiple times every season he made clownlike errors in defence that cost us.
So glad he has gone.
I thought we got our Arsenal back - but we got Emery

That nketiah being better than Auba was quality tbh

Tierney isn't very good though.

Classy.

He's admitted that his body can no longer handle the strain of a PL season. He also rightfully knows that he's gone down a level.

Rare to find such a clear judge of character and circumstances in football.

Shame some fans will remember him for that exit. But that lot never liked him in the first place.

Shame his body betrayed him.

He's the best CB we've had in the Emirates era and was at one point one of the best CBs in the world.

Will always be remembered for turning down a peak Bayern to remain at Arsenal.

I really don't like the way he left. I can't understand why he couldn't have seen out the final year of his deal with an agreement being made that he'll only play once a week and get games off to rest if too fatigued. For Bordeaux he's played 7 of their 9 games for the full 90 minutes.

I think he knew his body couldn't hack it anymore in the PL. I can understand his want to return to France since Ligue 1 isn't as demanding as the PL. Had he stayed, due to the rigors of the league, he could've picked up another major injury that would hamper his future QoL. Also, maybe he just missed France. I'll never fault someone for wanting to go home.

Cazorla could've stayed too, but La Liga is more technical than it is physical, so it suits his body and game more at this stage. Same with Rosicky and the Czech Republic (or I guess Czechia now).

Also, this.

On a different note:

Cazorla - Rosicky
------ Torreira

He really should have went about it better but I guess we'd have to hear what was said. He hasn't thrown any mud at Unai, he said he was understanding and Kos' words were that he felt he couldn't play 40 to 50 matches which is fine. Was that expressed to the coach and was there no compromise on that? It doesn't make much sense if he said Emery was understanding.
