If you believe all that, then you can throw your Arsenal shirt away, because you have no right to call yourself an Arsenal fan. The only other reason that you could believe these things is that you need glasses...a very thick pair.
Excuse me now while I rant:
I have made it very clear that for me Santos is the worst player in the squad....and yes worse than Djourou……and Squillaci. They at least have some defensive qualities. Santos lacks defensive skills, he cannot tackle, he has poor positioning, his awareness is shocking and he cannot jockey or shadow an opponent. Which basically translates into a worse defender than Squillaci, that is something to worry about.
He committed 5 fouls last night, more than double anyone else in the team. He was guilty of diving into every tackle and allowing opposition attackers to simply slip past him. Vermaelen on countless occasions had to cover for him leaving us open at the back. If you saw the game you will know what I mean. Santos would charge up the wing and then just not get back, either he is just to slow or just not fit enough. Ok I may be going a bit hard on the man, after all everyone in the squad does love him, but I am afraid that just isn't going to cut it. Those of you who fought with me and said he is great going forward and adds value to the attack….ask yourself if he really is that good at that even. Wouldn't you rather have your defenders good at defending…I leave you with that, but for me Santos needs to go.
Santos is not good enough for Arsenal and it makes me upset that the standard in the Arsenal squad is allowed to be this low. I would put Miquel Ignasi in at left back until Gibbs is back and see what the talented man can do.
The only positive about Santos is it's better to have him in your side as opposed to having Downing.
Who Should Arsenal play at Left Back while Gibbs is Out?
