Anyone else keen on the idea of trying Maitland-Niles in place of Bellerin for a while, because at the moment he is playing absolute S, well I'm lost for words. He looks lost. And can we please bring in a winger who wants to take people on, get round the back and put in some decent crosses.

No no no, but the winger idea I think we need twonthis window.

No why? Like him or not debauchery should be tried first. Niles is a midfielder, young and doesn't need messing around like other young defenders here. I said this summer bellerin has no strength or bravery, is not suited to the prem and we should have sold when we had the chance.

I'd like to see Debuchy play a few games. I thought he played well against Red Star in Europa. Plus a bit of competition for Bellerin might give him the kick to up his game to the level we all know he's capable of.

Yes, Bellerin is seriously overrated. He was converted from a winger into a full/ wing back, who can't defend. Maitland-Niles looks far better as a defender even though his favoured position is in midfield. Wenger did the same to Gibbs, who was an outstanding young midfield player, who can't defend.
Despite having two LB' s Wenger insisted on playing right-footed Maitland-Niles at LB and has used Monreal and Kolasinac as CB's.
It's a mess.

A back four of Maitland-Niles, Mustafi, Koscielny and Kolasinac is our strongest option or a back three of Holding, Mustafi and Koscielny.
Debuchy should have been moved on ages ago. Chambers is very average and should go, Mertesacker is retiring at the end of the season. Monreal is too slow as a LB and looked reasonable as a spare CB in a back three, but needs replacing. If a huge offer came in for Bellerin he is easily replaceable.
Thus, the defenders I would keep would be Maitland-Niles, Mustafi, Koscielny, Holding and Kolasinac. The others woudn't feature in any of the teams in contention for a top four spot, hence they should be replaced.
