    A massively underrated player here. So much better defensively now and linked up well with Willian yesterday. Big season for him. Easily our best right back. It should be between him and Walker for 2nd best right back in the league. He's better than Wank Bissaka.

    Not sure what was going on in the match thread. Woke up late (GMT-8) but when I went into the thread during the second half Bellerin was being picked out as a poor performer during the match. Comments in this thread seem more balanced, and match with what I saw on watching a recording. Maybe it has something to do with sales on the mind, AMN vs. Bellerin. I hope we can keep both. Don’t think we need to sell either to bring in Aouar.

    Yeah never go by the match-threads. I learned this a long time ago. This forum is reactionary enough but when the match is actually happening it goes up several levels. :lol:

    He's definitely close to being back to his best, heck some of the passes he's been making in terms of leading to goals/chances as part of the build, has been as good as I've ever seen from him. Also agree on your comments about AMN/Bellerin, ideally we really need to keep both. Like the Leno/Martinez situation is one thing but in this case both are currently starters here, AMN will be needed for his versatility he's pretty much direct backup if Tierney ever got injured for example (assuming we go back to 4atb) while he's the current starting LWB. It'd definitely weaken the squad a bit in that department if we had to get rid of one of them. Hopefully we can get rid of the other deadwood first and then asses things.

    Thanks. Not when you force it on others like the jolly green giants have done at Forest Green. Forcing someone to do something they disagree with (and which is harmful to many) is fascism.

    Lost possesion several times, got skinned and made a stupid foul, did what always does and ran away and hid from ball as much a possible.

    Bellerin and AMN were theinly two that played poorly for us.

    Thought Bellerin was great myself but there you go.

    Bellerin has subpar dribbling technique and is not the quickest with the ball at his feet(people forget that when mentioning his pace) which makes him really predictable/easy to defend against in the final third.
    His positioning is inconsistent and he regularly gets caught wrongside(see rugby tackle yesterday)

    What does he offer us? I have seen it being asked before and nobody seems to have an answer.
    A RB who is mediocre with the ball, mediocre defender(positioning, 1vs1, in the air)
    Only asset is pace without the ball(acceleration has declined greatly with injury as well)
    AMN has a much higher ceiling and is already the better player in a 5(in a 4 we don't know)

    You don’t sell him at this point, if only for squad depth.

    Bellerin, Tierny, AMN and Saka are outstanding options.

    Cedric is fine as a backup/competition for AMN, from the little I have seen he looks a lot more sound technicially than Bellerin.

    Out of all of our options, I like Cedric the least and we've recently tied him down to a long term deal.

    It feels like one of Bellerin or AMN has to go - to reduce squad bloat and help address our lack of funds.

    That pass for Auba.. :drool: Why didn't he shoot first time?!

    Another very good performance. Doing it consistently now, no matter the opposition.

    Fulham were poor, they barely tested us anywhere on the pitch.

    Will say it again. Not the bum you all make him out to be, especially in this not so great era of RBs.

    Looking sharper with every game and that first time left foot pass to initiate Auba’s goal. Beautiful.

    Nah a friend of a friend went to his yard a while ago. Said there was just a naked peng ting laying on his sofa when he walked in. :lol::lol:

    Please don't call Hector a "naked peng ting" ever again. :confused:

    Why do you see ‘naked peng ting’ and assume I’m talking about Bellerin?

    Do you fancy him?

    For real, I'm not gay but if I was I'd definitely go after someone like Hector. Cute, small and I'd be the alfalfa in the relationship he can be the submissive one.
