Papers saying Arsenal pushing harder for Raphinha. Surely they wouldn’t also go for Tielemans with Vieira already signed?
Or there were those of us who could see that he was a disaster of a signing who'd been out of his depth at a shite Southampton side.
That signing never, ever made any sense. At least the Vestergaard signing was logical; he'd had a brilliant season and a cracking international tournament. Bertrand looked past it two years previous.
I did indeed. However, I think the issue is the multi year aspect of it. He’s not exactly a spring chicken is he? I suspect he’d have bitten for a one year deal.Oh hindsight ……
seasoned left back with loads of experience on a free. At the time it was seen as a no brainier by many
Probably you as well.

And this was from the same thread; I don't think it's too far off the mark:The rest of that post:
'...Can't see him playing much and I hope he doesn't jump ahead of Thomas in the pecking order as that sends a terrible message to the lad....'
So I made it clear he wasn't as good as Thomas. He isn't. I was saying the only thing about this signing was that it was free.
This is what I wrote in the rumours thread when this was first being talked of:
I'd be using Justin at LB/LWB and Ricardo at RB/RWB with Castagne as a first choice back up for either. Throw in Thomas and you have another perfectly adequate replacement. Bertrand doesn't get in above Justin, Ricardo or Castagne; not even close.
If your going to be a prick about stuff at least don't cherry pick.
