One Reply to “The 67 players Arsenal want to sign and 24 tipped to leave”

  1. Reiss has scored – again – for Feyenoord yesterday, not even 3 days after doing extremely well against Marseille in the “Conference League” semi-finals
    He could have had at least one assist but one of his cutbacks – he does that very often, and very well too – was wasted away by Dessers, the Feyenood CF
    As for the goal he scored, I liked his run behind the Fortuna back-four a lot; he doesn’t do that often enough, which is a shame since he has all it takes to be very effective in 1 v. 1 against goalies ((he’s cool calm, collected under those circumstances, as for his technique it is just top-class – period)
    I know this may be regarded as anathema by many Arsenal fans, but I think Reiss and Emil are simply better football players than Marti (even though I understand how appealing Marti’s “Road Runner” style can be)
    Reiss is versatile too, he is comfortable on either wing, and I suspect he would shine as a playmaker if given the chance too – but I fear as soon as he’s back to Colney, he’ll be shown the door, which I just find … insane
