Tierney seems massively overrated based on what I've seen of him so far.

Wow, now there is something you don't hear every day and certainly not from most Arsenal fans.

He can defend, tackle, cross and link up play - and at 25mill, even if he were just 'competent', still represents a bargain compared to some of the other defenders getting bought for 30, 40, 50million + in the EPL (cough Maguire, cough Cancelo, cough Mendy, cough Shaw)

Bear in mind the previous specialist LB was SK........ I would say Tierney is a clear upgrade.

And he's being asked to play at CH a fair chunk of the time......

The only downside I can see is his injury record.

I haven't watched him as much as Celtic fans would have, but just based on what I've seen at Arsenal so far he's been quite underwhelming compared with how he was being talked up.

In fairness to him he's in a side which has been a shambles defensively and he hasn't been their worst defender.

Good for him. Arsenal seem intent on portraying him as the villain, when the reality is he's willing and able to play.

Arsenal not been shambolic in a while defensively since Arteta came in and Tierney large part of that.

They're still a shambles. Look at how few clean sheets they've kept in the League lately.

They've conceded 31 goals in 34 games under Arteta. Major improvement. 14 clean sheets too.

They have failed to keep a clean sheet in 8 of their last 9 League games. Even when they do keep a clean sheet they invariably look suspect at the back. Luiz and Holding are not viable options at centre back, and Xhaka should have been sold at least a year ago.

They would be a sh*t ton worse at the back without KT

Jesus the media overkill by Arsenal on Partey has been hard to stomach.

Had to wipe them from all social media.

Their social media must be run by an 18-year-old.
