My money is on Koscielny at right back

I am sometimes a man of few words and so I shall prove with this short post.  The options at right back with Bacary Sagna out for several months include Jenkinson, Koscielny, Coquelin and Santos.

My money is on Kos.  He has played there in the past, thus he has some experience and he seems to have the right attributes for the right back slot.  Young Jenkinson is not yet ready, this has been clear so far.  Coquelin is happy in the midfield and should play there.  Santos is as one sided as they come and the right is his side.

I would be very surprised if Koscielny does not become our regular right back for the next few months.

Fair assumption, lets just hope he stays fit until Sagna gets back.

Problem being that would either leave us with Djourou at CB or Song staying there and having Frmipong or Coqelin in midfield; something which is good enough for smaller teams but against better teams might prove an issue. Someone needs to step up either way, we'll see who fancies it on Sunday, I guess.

Why the hell did we let Eboue go, it's all about the squad!

Carl Jenkinson will flourish now he will play week in week out and improve game by game.

Hes played well so far apart from the Man Utd game.

He did very well against udinese and Liverpool so Sunderland should be fine for him

He wont be playing Man utd wingers every week!

SAgna has been worse than jenkinson this season.

Hes struggled against inferior wingers to Man Utds wingers like Junior Hoillet, Scott Sinclair, Kevin Mirallas, bale

Sagna is a loss but i am confident Jenkinson will show everyone what a top player he is!

Hes bloody die hard gooner as well!

We must all remember how much success Wenger have of playing players out of their natural positions.......doh !!!!

So we play a CB who is still developing and unproven at that position as our 1st choice RB for most of the season. Or a 19 year old from division 2. Again, more poor squad management from a manager who has had his time. What a joke for a club of our standing. How many more years of this madness, and people defending this madness?

Laurent Kosicleny was a RB at Guingamp and in his youth when he moved to Tours he got converted as a CB where he won the ligue 2 player of the year and than went to Lorient.



He played against Liverpool and Man Utd.

Sunderland will be alot more easier for him!

Hes been throw into some big big games already!

But with the experience, being left out setttling within the team he should be alot better now

Kosceilny would be great on the right wing. Jenkinson is great and as a lot of heart but he shouldn't be the first choice just yet.

Would be good, especially when Vermealen gets back. Then we could line up at the back:

Kos--- Mertsacker---Vermealen---Gibbs

Arsenal vs Sunderland Game said...

Arsenal vs Sunderland
I think Jenkinson will be start at right back. Koscielny is playing at CB, why move him?

It is the manager who knows the potential of the players than all of us commenting from distance.So let us accept his decision "It is easier said than done"
