Whenever I have seen Chambers play for Arsenal he hasn't been that impressive.
Think Arsenal paid 16 Mill for him.

In one-on-ones he sometimes doesn't look set, likes to put his arm on the opponent to slow them down and this is partly why he picks up bookings.Comfortable on the ball and can play at centre-half and at right-back but on occasions has looked uncomfortable at right-back.
Spoke to someone about him not so long ago and this person reckons that Chambers used to clean Rickie Lambert's boots at Southampton !

I've never said "I don't use Google" per se.

Information I got about Chambers is what I had heard and looked out for. I've never seen the article you have highlighted.I do speak to a lot of people about players and other football related matters I will have you know.

NOT saying any more about my information sources.

You've never seen an article that you more or less quoted word for word?

One player cleaning another's boots at a club is not indicative of their ability. Most youth players coming through the ranks are given tasks like this. I think more than anything it's to ascertain how willing they are to work for their progression within the club. I bet Ronaldo's cleaned the boots of somebody laughably bad along the way.

Not saying any more about your information sources? You dont need to mate, this article was written by Martin Keown specifically for the Daily Mail so its fairly obvious what source this was from.

I've said before numerous times I don't find you annoying and don't get why people get so riled up. I definitely believe that you are a Palace fan too but it's painfully obvious that you have an internet persona that you use for whatever reason - at least give people enough credit by admitting when you get caught out!

Think most clubs stopped doing this a while back, shame as I bet it kept a few ego's in check

NEVER seen that article at all.
I also included other things not in it as well.
Besides, if if I HAD seen the article and quoted from it, all I would have been doing was to provide some salient information about the player !

Someone spoke to me about Chambers and I also articulated what I think having seen him play.I've not been that impressed with him in an Arsenal shirt.Remember him playing at Southampton besides the likes of Shaw,Fonte,Loveren and Clyne all of whom, including Chambers of course who have left the club.

No, NEVER seen this article at all.
In any event, even if I HAD and quoted from it what is the problem ?
Did I say this information came from a "Source" ?
What is all this hogwash about being "Caught out" ? - NOT applicable at all for the reasons I have stated.

Whatever mate, it's not a crime to use google, I just enjoy proving that you do.

Ah ok, to be fair my comments were based on a documentary I watched about (I think) the Chelsea youth setup and it was about 15 years ago that I saw it!

But I agree, definitely think they should've kept it. Not in a nasty way, but just, as you say, to keep egos in check.
