awkward for club and Kos that this drama is being played out publicly. that said, I don't mind Kos not going. we really should be moving him on anyway. he doesn't have enough left in the tank for another EPL and EL campaign.

with just 1 year left, just get some Ligue 1 club to cough up £5m and get his wages off the books.

He's showing himself to be very unprofessional with how he's handling this. If you don't get your way, the professional thing to do is carry on with your duties.


It goes both ways

He’s been injured, but he’s also played through injury and been on constant painkillers before every game for the last 4/5 seasons

He’s on the decline, his body is on the decline, he’s been a fantastic servant at the club for nearly a decade and he hasn’t got any real value that someone would be willing to pay given his age and injury history

Just let him go home

I just don't like to see any player f**k us over, that's why I don't forgive someone like Cesc for example like many have of the fanbase have. Sure Kos is finished and he should be sold on, but to behave the way he is doesn't sit right with me. I think what Kos is doing is unprofessional and probably has left his rep in tatters but many have forgiven Cesc for doing the exact same thing, so you never know.

I know many on here would say just let him go and it gets his wages off the book. For me, I let him rot in the stands for the next season just to spite him. This is why we need to be careful going forward to who we give the captains armband too.

Doesn't shock me that you have a few defending him shows how far our fanbase have fallen.

The club releasing a petty statement is unprofessional but in terms of releasing him on a free....they don't have to. He signed a contract and they're within their rights to hold him to it if they feel they can't release him right now. Why leave ourselves in a bad position? I'm sure they're putting the team first and not doing it out of spite. The window is still open so we may be able to sign a replacement but until that happens, he should train with the club as normal and keep it professional. I get that he's had injuries and been a long servant but he's been paid for all the days off injured.

Im on his side. He has been here 10 years, never any bad thing regarding his attitude and professionalism. The people running the club on the other hand are lying cvnts. Im sure they promised him he can go and playing games now. You gonna take the guy who signef neymar and known dodgy character from barca over kos word?

Wheels coming off the wagon at Arsenal Football Club. Knew this would happen once Wenger left but didn’t expect it to happen so soon.
Five seasons before Wenger joined Arsenal league finishes were 4,10,4,12,5.
Five seasons before Emery joined 4,3,2,5,6.
End the myth that Emery inherited a shit squad and Wenger a great one.

Yeah I back Kos tbh, no idea what’s gone down but he wouldn’t do this without a huge f**k up from the clubs end. He was happy to retire here and give his career to us despite having options elsewhere.

If he has another year and we want him to see it out, then thats what he should do. To suggest we should release him though is ludicrous. We can get a few million or so if a team wants him now.
