Calum Chambers (On loan)


#461

Was he really so bad?


#462

Doesn’t hold up to scrutiny as he also signed one last November which presumably already done exactly this.


#463

Interesting, I wonder what he logic behind the renewal then. Makes me question the new regime even more so now.

No doubt our wage bill has increased by a decent amount now. Generally I thought that would be more upheaval wrt the squad.


#464

I honestly didn’t realize he’d signed that recently before. The most likely scenario then is that Emery obviously wasn’t the one who offered the new deal but didn’t see a place for him in the squad this season.


#465

Unai knows best. Next time please dont question his knowledge of when a player is too shit.


#466

This can be said for 90% of all our players


#467

90% is a harsh figure but it’s certainly a decent amount, mostly towards the back


#468

Said earlier in thread this would happen…:henry2:

Probably more optimistic that this is a good thing than bad.


#469

:giroud:

(couldn’t resist :slight_smile: )


#470

Haha still think he’ll come back in but hasn’t started the season well for them :wink:


#471

I was looking forward to @Mysty quoting that post in about nine months time but you’ve gone and ruined that now


#472

Signs are not good for the lad… I really hope getting a consistent run gets his head right, bc he still looks like a headless chicken too often for me.


#473

How many apps will he make by the end of his loan and will he come back better, worse or around the same level he left at?


#474

Less than 20 I reckon. Which is about what he would have made here, learning Emery’s system in the mean time. We’re selling him next summer imo.


#475

Around 20. Difficult to play in a very attacking side like Fulham though. It was better at Boro where they were more focused on the defending.


#476

Think I overhyped this guy. Thought he was a bit better than he has appeared this season. It might be the constant changes Fulham are making – not to mention changing their positions – that are making it hard for him and all the defenders to settle. But listening to 606 on radio 5 live, it’s Chambers that Fulham fans are mainly angry at. They want to send him back to us early :see_no_evil:


#477

He was good for us in the last few months of last season. Fulham changing their back 4 every game isn’t helping haha. Fulham and Middlesbrough are round about the same level and he was class for them.


#478

We had low standards in the last few months of last season, we were conceding 2+ in plenty of matches.


#479

We can’t risk our defensive future on someone who has not strung a consistent period of performance since the first few matches for Arsenal.


#480

Emery was right about this traffic cone. #UnaiKnows
