    Heh, that might be true...! You get the sense some of these guys haven't cared about anything else since they were like 5 years old. I think about that when some footballers are asked about their favourite artist/film/etc - and the struggle really seems just to be able to come up with a believable answer.

    Anyway, I have the feeling the main hobby for a lot of footballers is their family... Which is fine! But I think even someone like Arteta (assuming he's generally a 24/7 football guy), spends several hours a day not reading tactical analysis - but hanging out with his kids, gardening, cooking, ...I don't know. At least I hope he does!

    Old interview but he reiterated this again very recently in an interview I can’t find now. In any case, it’s ok to not be a 24/7 football guy you can still be a top player in your position.

    Infact I would say I would prefer a player to use their time outside of training effectively rather than playing games and watching television for many hours each day.
    You don't want him sitting around in his own head all afternoon/night worrying about the next game.
    You often notice highly effective people are good at a number of disciplines (i.e. academics, business and/or athletics) and the skills they learn and habits they form can transfer across areas. I can't recall Bellerin has ever been dropped or called out as a poor trainer by a manager like a number of others, and he undertakes additional activities like Yoga that offer some supplemental benefit to his core training.

    They called it team bonding right, getting to know your team mates.

    Think hes coming back in to form now, showing it through better ball control, passing and looking to take on players while getting more involved. A good performance against Son today would do him a world of good.

    Only thing that matters is quality tbh. If he was performing at a high level none of this would be seen as an issue, which it really isn't..

    Solid again today. Guess that's why nobody posted. Should have had an assist. Twice in the last two games Laca and Auba should have done better with the ball.

    Probably the worst player we have and it's shocking that he is still a starter. Think the time when "RB is not our priority atm" is coming to an and. RB is definitely a priority this summer and this guy needs to leave. You know it's bad when we start asking questions like when will some nobody like Soares start instead of him

    He was excellent at times today. Like the Bellerin of old.

    Did well again today.

    Shame Mustafi and Kola got in the way of him planting some trees.

    Still far from his best but good to see some signs of improvement at least.

    He was good today and has been getting better gradually. I hope he gets over his injury fully.

    Kolasinac or Mustafi probably hacked your account :lol:

    Hector "Pass it backwards" Bellerin should be this thread's name.

    The two of them are idiots for sure, but Bellerin is an absolute poverty every time he touches the ball. I was a huge fan when Bellerin started with us and he wasn't that popular among the fans back then, but it looks like I was tricked by his pace
