    You could say a lot of things with can or will. Fact is I don't think Bellerin has been tested at all yet ( bit like Ospina) so I reserve judgement from him for now. Defensively I haven't seen anything to suggest he can be the best in a few years. At this rate Chambers is more likely to be the better defender and yet he's still miles off it.
    He won't be the better right back though, his pace is not as good as Bellerin's. This in turn negatively affects his recovery ability (in contrast to Bellerin) and he gets burnt in one on ones. Also, from what I have seen, Bellerin's transitional play and crossing is quite far ahead.

    Yeah but Chambers is on path to become a CB, which is why I specifically said defender haha. Chambers's positioning is generally better. Only reason he doesn't look as polished as say Bellerin does right now is because we've used and abused him (starting him every single game up until Debuchy's return) where our whole defence has been shredded and he's been made to look bad. Need to remember the few shockers Bellerin has also had, didn't he get subbed off pretty early vs Stoke?

    Still calling it now. Chambers will be the better player in the future.

    Tbh I'm still hoping that Corporal Jenkinson will outgrow him and rise to become the banter king right back.
    Have a bad feeling about this Bellerin kid, reminds me a bit too much of Cesc and Nasri, like a Cesc and Nasri hybrid look about him. But there is no doubt that he has world class potential since he is already playing games to a high level at 19. Zabaleta for example, at 19, was playing out in the sticks for San Lorenzo.

    Yeah Bellerin very much looks like the Cesc type.


    Can't compare him to Nasri, at least he was ice cold and straight to the point

    Just the face mate, he has that look of being an absolute **** when the time comes. E.g. Cashley, E.g. Nasri. You can spot these lads a mile off.

    Wenger clearly put something in Ozil's Weetabix this morning - unreal.

    did not realise that southampton have to go away to city on the last day of the season..

    That could be a brutal end to things, if its still close between 3rd-6th by then

    I like the match day threads, I feel like more neutrals can get involved, whereas the society's only really seem to be for that club's fans.

    We've still got Liverpool/Chelsea/UTD/Swansea and Everton to play. I would say that our fixture list is set up nicely but that doesn't mean it'll be easy points at all

    Newcastle and Palace could be very tricky too.

    Is your avatar a white blank space or is my iPad just messed up?

    Well yes, but when it's too constant it just gets annoying. The discussion is ongoing anyway Tornando, hopefully it's something that's best for everyone.

    All of those fixtures bar Newcastle, United and Palace are at home which is always a plus.

    Thought Swansea was away? Swansea are like our bogey club really, just not as apparent as say Stoke.

    I have it on in the background whilst working..

    Southampton fans should be pissed if they dont win this - they were all over the swans in the first half, and should have easily been 2-3 up if not for some great defending, and some terrible attacking in the final third.

    Great for arsenal if they draw though

    The problem is people only care about their own club & not football as a whole. Capital One Cup 1st Leg between Spurs & Shef Utd got 14 replies...A semi final

    Racist! :fuhrer:
    I'm joking of course hehe.

    Yeah but you have to understand that there isnt that many Spurs fans on here and I haven't seen a single Sheffield United fan on here either. Match thread creation and popularity is all dependant on who's playing hun
