I don’t think there are many Arsenal fans that are happy to see Calum Chambers move across London to Fulham as many of us felt that he was one of most consistent defenders in pre-season. But he obviously doesn’t fit into Emery’s plans this season as the Spaniard seems very happy to let him go. Emery said: “Calum is a talented defender who has a bright future. We all believe this loan at Fulham will be an important part of his development and wish him a successful season.”
Chambers himself is very happy with the deal, and at least he should be assured of first team football at the Cottagers. He told FulhamFC: “I’m really excited. I watched a lot of Fulham last season, I really like the way they play football, there’s a good manager, it’s a great club, so I’m really excited for the season ahead,”
“Everyone can see that Fulham’s a club that likes to play football, play football from the back, through the lines. That’s the style of football I like as well, so I think it fits me and suits the way I play.”
Well I wish the Englishman luck, but I have a feeling that Emery is going to regret this one when the games start piling up and the injury list starts growing.
But we will see, won’t we?
