Image: David Luiz bids farewell to Arsenal

David Luiz appears to have confirmed that he will be leaving Arsenal this summer, posting a goodbye message on his Instagram.

The Brazilian joined the club from Chelsea in the summer of 2019 on an initial one-year deal, before agreeing to extend his stay by another 12 months, and now looks set to leave North London.

Luiz’s time at the Emirates hasn’t run smoothly, but overall he has been a positive player within our squad, but I can’t say that I’m shocked that Arsenal would have decided to part ways this summer.

Does anyone believe his signing was a waste?

    He saved our arses more times than made mistakes.

      what a delusional commentary, as per usual…please provide specific stats to back your ridiculous claim…something tells me you would have said likewise if it was Xhaka who was bidding farewell

      1. ken1945 says:

        Perhaps YOU should provide the stats that prove Declan wrong.
        I have to smile when someone disputes another’s thoughts, but provide no stats whatsoever to back their claim…. perhaps you are doing an article on Luiz’s time at the club and we can all see your thought process?

        I would suggest that Luiz has been our most oroductive/consistent defender this season, but look forward to you proving Declan and myself wrong.

          Classic Ken…always eager to punch above your weight-class, especially whenever someone even utters anything stats-related…please keep in mind that I wasn’t the one who made the ridiculous claim that Luiz “saved our arses more times than made mistakes”…kind of a ludicrous hot-take directed towards one of our two most error-prone individuals…now if he had said something more logically reflective regarding Luiz’ s potentially positive impact on and off the field or that he liked the way that Luiz pushed the play on occasion considering our horribly inept sideways football under Arteta or even if he felt that Luiz was our most consistent defender over the past season, no response would have been forthcoming, but to actually make the statement he did about this particular player seems like either a troll-job or rather delusional

          As I thought, no substance to your “delusional commentary” just the same verbal diarrhoea that you churn out verbatim.

          Check out the facts and stats regarding Luiz this season and then you might just understand what Declan was getting at.

          Punching above my weight class?
          No idea what that means, but perhaps you can explain?
          Come to think about it, don’t bother – just a waste of my time.

          1. The-Real-Vieira-Lynn-4ever says:

            I did check out the facts Ken and guess what they told me, we were a bang average club with a heavy focus placed on defensive zone coverage, who were overtly obsessed with simple sideways passing, as only two clubs have a higher percentage on defensive zone total passes, which led to an artificially inflated level of passing efficiency and little opportunity for opposing players to dribble past our central defenders…like I’ve always said, if manipulated properly, stats can support just about any notion, but my eyes never lie

            please keep in mind that I never suggested that Luiz was a garbage player, far from it in fact, as I always had a soft spot for this rather intriguing player, warts and all, but he certainly isn’t the kind of individual I would want to count on if we had adopted a more balanced tactical philosophy which required our CBs to face vastly more 1 v. 1 scenarios…furthermore, I certainly wouldn’t suggest that a man with 3 total assists, 3 red cards, the same amount of tackles in 2 seasons as he had in his final year at Chelski and a handful of errors that led directly to goals, in his two seasons in North London, as someone who “saved our arses more times than made mistakes”…just saying

          2. ken1945 says:

            blah blah blah blah blah – as I said, please don’t bother.

          3. The-Real-Vieira-Lynn-4ever says:

            it seems your not such a big fan of stats when they don’t support your particular agenda…like I said, stop attempting to punch above your weight-class or the inevitable will happen

          4. The-Real-Vieira-Lynn-4ever says:

            you’re not your

    I hope he has a good send-off from the fans tomorrow.

    Roly-poly Moss to officiate ☹

  3. Adex says:

    As far as i know no one in that arsenal backline is as successful and experienced as david luiz

    1. Shina says:

      He has given his possible best but costly mistakes obstruct his playing time at arsenal. Wishing the best in his life endeavors.

  4. Ekoku says:

    One of the most successful defendes in the EPL.i wish he stayed a little bit longer to nature young defenders.hoye luiz.well dode

  5. Reggie says:

    Thanks David, you came, gave your all, gave your wisdom and proved all the doubters wrong. Good luck in the future! As if he would read this. Lol. But seriously he was an excellent signing and didn’t come here to retire.

    1. ken1945 says:

      Indeed Reggie, unlike another certain Brazilian.

      1. Reggie says:

        Too true ken, Luiz for me was a success and i think he mostly brought positives to the table. Top player.
