No way does Brunt play as a winger, he's not quick enough. Pulis wants quick wingers.

Gibbs?  :-X

Have to say I just can't see Brunt being left out due to his delivery from set pieces. I've no idea what Gibbs is like in dead-ball situations but he would likely be the only naturally left footed player if Brunt was left out (assuming McLean not in the team).

Gareth Barry?

Matt Phillips deliveries will be fine.

Yep he's fine but think we need a left footer also for variety.

Echo the comments about the dungeon - when you look at the fullbacks used by Pulis in his tenure with us so far then Gibbs is a bolt out the blue. Has always appeared to me to be a full back who much preferred going forward than his defensive duties. Having said that, he has played for an Arsenal side whose attitude towards defending is pathetic so I don't wish to appear too critical.

Gibbs can't cross so no chance of him taking the set pieces.

Brunt's on Sunday were awful, mind you

Doesn't sound good. What use is a full back overlapping down the flank, but unable to cross? Mind you, that was the one part of his game that Dawson needed to improve on, but it looks like moving to the centre he won't need to.

Don't forget Arsenal don't like crosses much...it's a bit basic for their style.

Delighted that we might be signing a Left Back but truly surprised that it's Gibbs. At £7m a relative bargain but still can't escape the nagging feeling that he isn't a Pulis type defender.

Signed. Top signing for that amount. England international for 7m is an absolute bargain.

I wonder if Brunty will be relieved, that he wont have to get back to left back position after taking corners when teams are on the counter attack

Well Gibbs might be looking at Evans as an example of a guy who took a step down but in a couple of years was able to go back to a top 6 side.

Either way I hope Gibbs becomes a solid LB with something to prove. Guess Dawson is a permanent CB now?

Spot on mukka, have said it in another post that we can become a stepping stone club (nursery} back or to a top 6 club while at the same time making us stronger in the long run.
I think Daws has more than earned his opportunity to play CH

Well this means he's back on the bench...

Sorry but I don't think that is realistic. It has taken Evans 2 seasons to make that transition (if it happens) and by then Gibbs will be pushing 30 the top 6 generally don't hire 30 year old full backs, we are his level now. Generally Evans will be one of the rare exceptions to the rule when a player steps down a level certainly once they have reached their mid 20's they don't get a second bite of the Champions League level cherry.

you could well be right about Kieran but it depends on the individual i mean some consider 30 as someone being in there prime not me i think 65 is. ;) :D

Looks done.

Kieran Gibbs has completed his £7m move from #afc to #wba and signed a 4-year contract. Watford's failure to agree personal terms cost them.

Curious to hear what his wages are. I heard reports that the reason Watford couldn't get it over the line is that Gibbs was asking for £80k a week, £20k more than he's on at Arsenal.

Just seen this on facebook. 


According to sky sports Gibbs deal has not finished yet the contract & personal terms have not been finalized just what happened at Watford.

Gibbs is not worth £80k pw. Do footballers pluck these figures out of the air. I would rather a striker on £80k+ pw.

Only our top players should be on that - Evans imho.

What has Gibbs done in the last season to merit it?
