Steve, in terms of Bellerin how can you think he is so bad? The guy has to operate the whole right flank on his own with next to no protection. The team was so unbalanced that you literally can’t blame him. Modern day football isn’t as simple as having 11 world beaters who look good on paper, it’s building a team where units are cohesive. Every player deserves a fresh chance under the new manager and I for one am sure just like ox Bellerin would flourish elsewhere.

I am hoping that Bellerin will shine under Emery. Personally, I do not want to see him or Xhaka go anywhere. They are both brilliantly talented players and just need to focus on what they are good at! Neither of them have been coached to their strengths and have been bullied in to the old Arsenal way of sideways passing and overplaying. They aren't the only two either!

Totally agree mate, I'm not a fan of Xhaka Mustafi or Iwobi but if Dick wants to give them a fresh start so will I.
Belerin despite being the youngest for some reason has copped the most stick and the only obvious reasons I can see for that is because the expectations are higher of him than the rest, why? Because he's actually delivered at a high standard consistently for a season and half where the other apart from Kos have only ever done it in short bursts here and there
It's not Burnley or St Johnston who are interested in Belerin but Barcelona and Juventus and that has to tell us something.

There are so many examples of this. Bonucci at Milan, Pogba at United, Zlatan at Barcelona. Otamendi last season vs. this season.

Give Bellerin, Xhaka and Mustafi a chance and I think they will take it. More conserned with Iwobi and chambers who in my opinion doesn't have enough intensity.

Im sorry i don't rate bellerin or xhaka. My original point was, rumours are we are still in for a right back. IF true, neither does Emery. I see things in both those players that tell me they are not geared for prem football, not at the level we aspire too. If the boss can make a silk purse out of a sows ear, then he will do miracles for us.

If Emery doesn't rate Belerin then it's right he should cash in on the lad, personally I think he would be making a mistake but it's what he thinks that matters as he has do what is best for the team and squad not individuals careers.
Arsenal or elsewhere Belerin will come good again, he hasn't lost all that ability that he showed consistently for 18 months week in week out, he's just lost his confidence and I'm sure if we don't Jurgen and others will happily help him get it back again.
Some players are inconsistent because they think they are a lot better than they are when in fact they play a few good games here and there in patches but are equally poor at other times, Hector doesn't fit in that bracket as a player or person in my opinion.

I suppose Gunner the question is do we miss ox, will we miss bellerin? The answer to that would be who we get in to replace them regardless of how they do elsewhere. We seem to have got a player better suited to us than he was at man u. Do they miss him? Its all about who plays in their ex place for you.

I think the criticism put on Bellerin is absolutely fair, in that he lost any ability to defend, coupled with his complete inability to offer anything going forward other than a sideways or backward pass. You can see better crosses at the local park on a Sunday morning than he can deliver, despite the fact he was supposedly a forward before becoming a full back? Perhaps he should watch some videos of Monreal, who despite his many critics, offers more as an attacking threat in 5 minutes than Bellerin managed in the whole season. However, despite this criticism, i think he is ultimately a good player, who has just lost his way, and i am sure we will see him back to his best soon.

Epping agree but for me, bellerin was never the same after Alonso clattered him. For me also his bravery is in question and for a defender that's no1 requirement. Reyes was the same, one tough game and he didn't fancy it anymore.

09 Jun 2018 22:30:09
Reyes was a total shock in how badly he fell away Steve. He looked the part for us, and then fell away massively, and unlike some other players who re-ignighted their form and career after they left us, such as Carlos Vela, I don't think Reyes ever really picked up his career again.

09 Jun 2018 23:54:40
Epping Reyes just didn't fancy a bruising battle and neither does bellerin. In bellerins case, with him being a defender, he has to look forward to a dual, take it on with relish and he doesn't.
