Calum Chambers
 
I assume as this is from the Advertiser we're not paying it much attention...?

I rate this kid, would be a good signing - does he have a Dutch dad or something?

MasterYoda 12-07-2017 12:31 PM

Decent signing - however with Arsenal moving to a back 3 you'd think he'd have a shot at resurrecting his career there

I would imagine he's gone further down the pecking order with Holding coming in and doing quite well at the end of last season.

I appreciate the "up to 16m" Arsenal were prepared to pay included a lot of add-ons but I would still think they paid Southampton a substantial chunk up-front.
Probably too rich for us in this window I'm thinking!

You think he is overtaking Koscielny, Mustafi and new boy Kolasinac?

Beneaglee 12-07-2017 12:46 PM

He played pretty well at the end of last season. Doubt they would want to sell.

ForzaPalace 12-07-2017 12:46 PM

Yes please

Liam_Palace 12-07-2017 12:46 PM

I haven't looked at it, but yes they started doing this click bait shit based soley on bookies odds last season.

This summer they have also started doing headlines about the transfer values of players eg. 'Is this Palace midfielder worth x million?' And then when you click on the link it is about their value on fantasy football and whether 'you' should sign them or not. I shit you not!

Then there is the football London site which constantly just reports on other reports or tells you 'how fans on twitter have reacted' to the latest piece of (usually) non-news. Click bait crap but I guess it must work as the headlines on newsnow draw people in.

CP-RJW 12-07-2017 01:46 PM

Is he actually any good?

Was just about to post the same thing. Looked very solid and assured. Happy to do the dirty work alongside Mawson. Mawson looks like he will be a top player and I am a little surprised someone hasn't tried to prise him out of Swansea in this window. Reminds me a little of a good version of a young John Terry - i.e. without the bad bits :) and so half wondered if Chelsea would buy and loan him back.

Nigelbrag 12-07-2017 02:57 PM

There would be no question if its the same quality player that we saw at Southampton and in his early days at Arsenal, but Now? for me Chambers had a very average season at Boro, nothing that made him stand out so as to say, Yes.
Surely if we were to sign the Dutch CB, then the interest in Chambers was only as an alternative? or could it be that Scott Dann is being sold and Chambers is his replacement, which would make good sense as there is a good player ready to surface again. Sadly though Scotty seems on the wane so maybe a good time for change.

Neillo's Son 12-07-2017 03:05 PM

Always thought since he "hit the big time" at Arsenal it looks like he's more interested in the way he looks than his ability.

Plenty of time to turn into the player that Wenger hopes he'll be, would prefer a permanent transfer though!
