Orbinho: Martin Ødegaard created five chances against Newcastle - the most by any player in any Arsenal Premier League game under Mikel Arteta. It was also only 2nd in all competitions to Kieran Tierney v Newcastle in the FA Cup who created six that night.

Odegaard plays a lot like Xhaka he likes to slows down play a lot to scan for passes but he slows down our play too much. Smith Rowe is much better for us. Odegaard is also slower than expected which could be due to his knee injury but he does not move the ball fast enough and he cannot get on the end of one twos. For the performances he has shown we cannot afford to spend £60m on a player that does not improve our team as much as Smith Rowe does

Odegaard has not performed to the level expected and we are not here to do favours for players to help them improve. Compare him to Bruno Fernandes and what he did for man utd and the level he is performing at we cannot afford to spend £60m on a player just to perform the same way we are now
