Arsenal: Kalidou Koulibaly, not Sokratis, the step-up required

In their initial search for a centre-half, Arsenal are being linked with moves for Kalidou Koulibaly and Sokratis, but only one offers the step-up required. I think it’s fair to say that centre-half is a position of need this summer. Even if Laurent Koscielny was scheduled to miss the next six months at least with […] Arsenal: Kalidou Koulibaly, not Sokratis, the step-up required - Pain in the Arsenal - Pain in the Arsenal - An Arsenal Fan Site - FanSided

Laurent Koscielny has not had a good year with Arsenal, but given everything that’s happened, someone needs to be asking questions about what could have been avoided. Non-contact injuries are always the worst.

Laurent Koscielny tears Achilles tendon

This one was tough to write. Injuries are the worst part of professional sports. Sure, losses are a bummer and getting eliminated from a competition stinks, but the sting fades over time.

Once we get over the initial shock, we think about the career implications and the difficult recovery ahead, and it...
