  1. LISANDRO MARTINEZ is the hot topic in EPL right now. Arsenal offered 30 Mil for Licha but Ajax rejected it. Now Spurs is very keen on our multi talented Defender. If Spurs really want Licha they can easily outbid Arsenal. Man U is also interested. I really hope Spurs take him. With Spurs he can play CL and challenge EPL title. And guess who he gets to Partner up in the Back…..??????
    This could be literally our set CBs in the coming future. Licha and Cuti. And playing in the same club can only benefit us further. I am too excited to see Licha and Cuti partner up on weekly basis. Man its mouthwatering….I really hope Spurs pull it off. In Sha Allah

  2. This is an odd one…
    In the past 5 years he had 2 wonder seasons – 21/22 and 18/19
    21/22 season 77.5% Save% (96th percentile) – 18/19 season 80.9 Save% (95th percentile)
    14 & 16 clean sheets respectively (top in France those years)
    Clearly a very good shot stopper but no interest from any bigger clubs

    I’m wondering if this guy is just really unlucky or if he has an attitude problem. Regarding NT selection I think it’s attitude.
    Reminder that he said publicly and overconfidently said “I’M CONVINCED OF WHAT WILL HAPPEN. I KNOW IT. I WILL BE THE NUMBER 1 GOALKEEPER FOR ARGENTINA.”
    Then “No comments…” tweet after AFA released squad list vs Germany & Ecuador in 2019
    Whether he is a troublemaker or not I don’t know, but you could argue about his professionalism from these comments

    • Since advanced goalkeeping stats one average/OK season in 17/18 with 35,5 post shot xG 36 goals conceded, two God level seasons 18/19 40,3 psxG 29 goals!!!, 19/20 44,6 psxG 36 goals, one bad 20/21 48,5 psxG 53 goals and another good season 21/22 39,8 psxG 35 goals. Benitez is a classic old school goalkeeper like De Gea: very bad passer, just regularly bombs the balls forward. This doesnt work with dominant teams. Emi is good passer, Rulli great (his biggest strength) Musso good, Armani OK/good, Benitez is sadly bad.

    Arsenal plan to push again with Ajax for Lisandro Martinez. He’s top target for Arsenal, as revealed by
    @David_Ornstein
    – Ajax turned down €30m opening bid as they really hope to keep Lisandro. ⚪️🔴 #AFC

    Now the Spurs also want Lisandro Martinez.

    🚨Arsenal are leading the race for Lisandro Martinez but face significant competition from clubs including Tottenham Hotspur.

    🔑With the ability to play at centre-back, left-back and in midfield, Martinez is seen as a perfect utility player.

    Other news: Leandro Paredes extends his contract with PSG until 2024.

    • I really hope he doesn’t end up at Arsenal… I’d rather see him at Spurs playing with Cuti if he decides for England.
      How isn’t Sevilla all over him when they are losing both their CBs??
      He seems an ideal fit for La Liga and possession based teams
