Rant about players made of glass incoming. If the rumours are true (which I doubt massively) of a £50m bid coming in for Tierney I'd take it in a heartbeat, he's a good player and with character but moving forward trying to compete for multiple competitions including Europe we can't have injury liabilities at the team and accommodate a player that may only be around for half the season.

We've had too many injury prone players at the club (Diaby, Wilshere, Walcott to name a few) that we stuck with when we should've shipped them out.

Apologies for the rant I know it will probably annoy some people but surely lessons have to be learnt at some point at the club.

Maybe or maybe not ?

It's such a shame, he's so full on, even in training apparently so bound to have problems. I can't imagine Arsenal without him though. Is there such a thing as a player who can play any position across the back?

I raised concerns months ago about KT great player but he will miss a lot of games I’m afraid.

Although I fully appreciate the views, I can't say I agree. KT is a captain, a warrior, someone the clubs absolutely needs! However, his injury record is worrying, granted. Still, not enough of a problem to sell him. He's not at the Wilshere, Diaby level.

The bigger issue for me, is the back up. We need to have a better squad, not just a good first 11. Cedric has filled in admirably for Tomi, we need a similar back up for Tierney, someone we can rotate without impacting on the teams performance or output. Tavares is not the one. Showed flashes of quality, but his defending and decision making is awful.

Keep Tierney. Add sufficient cover for competition and rotation.

Totally agree Lefty mate.

But wasn’t Taveres that signing, he is exactly what we want, the reserve left back who doesn’t play if Tierney is fit, but does when is isn’t? He has only played a few games, so maybe we need to give him time rather than write off his entire existence based on a couple of poor performances. I mean, we still have people talk up Xhaka, despite the fact he has been dreadful and a liability for multiple seasons, let alone a few games. We all want a squad of 22 world class players, but I’t doesn’t work like that. No top left back is going to sit on the bench in Tierneys shadow, ready to step up when asked. if you find that player, I would say he is either not world class, or he is, but with no ambition and just playing us purely for the money, as any decent player will be off to play first team football somewhere else rather than sit on the subs bench for us.
