Gabriel Paulista


#61

Should try to sell him in January honestly.


#62

I’d much rather see Holding get any possible minutes it must be said.

Was my worry that he’d be confined to the training pitch.


#63

Jenkinson’s the only one getting sold, if this guy is preferred to him at right back.


#64

Sadly, I feel when he’s selected in the team, that we’re bound to concede a goal from his own doing, which is a shocking trait to have as a CB. He did well as a bit-part RB yesterday, in fact, he put in some quality tackles too but his overall composure is what let’s him down.

I would much rather persist with Holding/Chambers as backups to Kostafi.


#65

I concur I want to see Holding developed , Gabriel scares me ,he looks like a Vampire !


#66

Seemed solid. Sooner farm him off for an inflated fee. Think he would be a hero at a mid club.


#67

What surprises me about him is his poor ability on the ball. I always assumed that coming from Spain (and a team as well regarded as Villarreal) he’d have some semblance of how to play with the ball at his feet.


#68

Jenkinson should have never been brought back.

What is it?


#71

Gabriel’s birthday.


#72

Yesterday he has played a good game when he tried to be a ball-winner, but his feet are totally useless in a squad who loves to play a type of football like Arsenal, City.


#73

I agree which is why I have no idea why we signed him


#74

Yeah he definitely seems an odd one… probably need to keep him just for depth, but I imagine Chambers comes back next summer and we sell him on. Mustafi is a better defender and has far superior feet and passing.

AW does have an odd way of cobbling multiple players who are decent-ish instead of just going for the one WC.


#75

Probably because before to sign Mustafi, we had not any rude defender in the squad capable to play with a minimal style. Unfortunately his limits about the technique and the concentration are too big.


#76

Anyone seen this from Gabriel? :cry:

#77

So touching. He looked really lost :frowning:


#78

Hard not to get emotional when you see one of your own like that.


#79

Gosh, That’s touching.
