    Just a small prediction here, but I reckon throughout the season, some team will try the Trent Alexander-Arnold corner once as an intentional tactic.

    I don't think you can do that intentionally.

    I can't believe Daley Blind copied him 3 years ago against Leicester, what a rip off he was

    Last year at Griffin Park so you must make a game this season. Konsa off to Villa for 12 so that is about 25 million we have made on two young defenders in the last 6 months, more than pays for everything we have done so far this summer. Still expecting Maupay to go but got hopes we might hang on to Benrahma now unless we get a really huge offer.

    Yes. I regret not going more over the last few years really. I think I've actually been to more matches at Griffin Park than any other ground, come to think of it. Many fond memories.

    Bees v Rotherham in 2003 in the pouring rain when Brentford attempted to pass the ball back to the goalkeeper from a corner, resulting in a Rotherham goal, is something I won't ever forget I don't think.

    Jon Macken appearing for Carlisle and being awful even in League 1 another amusing memory.

    You'll have to let me know when you are down for a match.

    It has all changed so much and yet because the ground is exactly the same it also so very familiar. I am sure it will be great in the new ground but these few years have been special.

    "We are very disappointed by Laurent's actions, which are against our clear instructions," said Arsenal.

    Arsenal are a ****ing shambles. Wouldn't be at all surprised if the club have gone back on a promise made to Koscielny.

    It does seem alarmingly out of character, but who knows.

    In any event, I'd be surprised if we see him in an Arsenal shirt again.

    Odds on Koscielny to Man United?

    Well we are collecting rather underwhelming defenders....

    Sounds a bit like the club have already told him he's not getting a contract, or at least the one he wants, whilst also telling him they won't let him leave now (think Bordeaux want him). Screws him doubly as makes him feel completely underappreciated whilst also stopping him from getting a decent final deal

    And either giving him a new long term contract or allowing him to leave for free would screw us over... we're not a charity.

    We need him for the next season unless we can get a decent fee in now to put towards a replacement. However, we don't want to commit to a long term contract for an aging player with a recent history of severe injuries. It's that simple.

    Well cash in then, there's offers apparently on the table. But he can't really sit around for 12 months with no contract beyond. He's getting on, the offer in 12 months time, if it comes at all, is going to be a fair bit lower than the offers now. Like you say he's injury prone, if he gets another knock that could turn offers away. He needs to sort his future now - theres offers out there, none from Arsenal, being stubborn about it, saying you 'need' him (but not valuing him with a contract), is naturally going to **** him off. Imagine if your boss told you he was going to lay you off in 12 months time, but was actively stopping you moving to another department, you'd be absolutely fuming.
