Trusty the process


GenericAustin

The LeBron James of soccer


DeparturePuzzled6504

LeBron has never been to a college class. Trusty >>


Muscat95

I keep forgetting we have this guy. Which is probably for the better because he'll likely never play for us


dzoya1266

Good luck to him at Huddersfield


gunningIVglory

How can you forget our ONLY January signing......


BenjaminDaaly21

\*Matt Turner


buzzedgod

Made a fantastic save on a free kick just about an hour ago. Looking forward to seeing him underwhelm in a Carabao Cup match in the fall.


WhyAlwaysMe_45

He's loaned out to Colorado Rapids, in case you're wondering why he's in a Villa shirt


doggy_lipschtick

Does MoM for the Rapids get a paddle? That's hilarious.


Itsyaboiblue

Rapids fan here, every game the supporters group (C38) designs and paints a new paddle to go to the MotM. There’s some pretty great designs they come up with, I believe yesterday’s was a shark. The paddle is always in the starting line up photo [too](https://twitter.com/coloradorapids/status/1525566796199170048?s=21&t=RbGCve9zk9kSFECf4V_wfg)


BigVegetable289

Huh, fun stuff. I like it!


No-Manager-7341

That’s a really cool tradition


doggy_lipschtick

That's great. A Kroenke team too yeah? I always hoped Arsenal would start training there in the off season like they used to in Austria.


sleepytipi

Arsenal used to train in Austria? I guess it would make sense with the altitude.


doggy_lipschtick

Oh yeah. Wenger eventually had to take the team on these marketing tours, but he used to head up to the mountains and lock them away for a month. Always thought the Denver connection was the perfect opportunity for a middle ground.


UnparliamentaryTea

That’s a really fun tradition to get going. For all the “fight and win” American supporter stereotypes, there are some genuinely really cool and unique things like that happening in MLS


goonerboo

lol do they get an oar for motm? thats cool


Kitchen_Equipment_21

Congratulations 👏🎉


Anonbosch1

Who?


RevertBackwards

A centre back we signed in January


Vainglory

We signed a CB from the US and loaned them back for the season. Not a great deal of fanfare over the deal, looks to be a fairly low stakes play from the club as he was only £1.8m. Left footed, good with the ball and fairly good physically. r/gunners is slanted towards the US fan base so you hear more about this guy and Matt Turner here than you will on twitter or anywhere else.


TheRealDSwizz

Why aren't we lining up with Trusty - Saliba vs Newcastle, that's what i want to know.


HeroDGamez

Mikel doesn't trusty the process /s


EnglishHooligan

But he is an American player that is coming in without the usual "hype" that generally fizzle's out. Thus, he will obviously be the modern Tony Adams.


No-Manager-7341

What hype does this guy have?


willozsy

Honestly, this is the first time I've heard that we signed this guy.


imGnarly

SNHU alumni and football hall of famer Auston Trusty


kwhicks

I think SNHU has to have a link to MLS and USL. Bham legion just had a few dudes graduate from there too. Great for them


anarchistfajitas

is it not a Kaiser university situation where it’s one of those barely schools that sits just above the threshold for having their certification revoked?


BobEWise

SNHU us private, non-profit, regionally accredited, and seems generally well regarded according to its Wikipedia page.


kwhicks

I have no idea tbh. I just hope these folks are getting a degree they can use after their playing career. I don’t think it is as bad as for profit school or scam


Ornery-Classic-894

They’re the official parter of MLS, I believe the players get free tuition or something. SNHU is an online university so it largely caters to people pursuing degrees while working other jobs.


kwhicks

That’s awesome. Thanks for confirming. That’s fantastic for these guys to have a flexible schedule and help provide them future financial stability


naviav

Another legion/arsenal fan?! Glad to know I’m not the only one


kwhicks

Good to meet ya!!! Join our birmingham supporters group. Birmingham Gooners and the plan is to meet for rojo for our usual watch party for the last game of the season!!


gte339i

He’s not actually that bad. The PL is going to be a huge step up for him so he’s probably on loan at a championship club next year.


el-fenomeno09

Idk if you remember that’s the plan for him. If he ever plays for us I’ll be surprised.


Garenmain180k

I reckon he’s gonna be the new Mavrapanos in that he’ll just be eternally loaned out seeing as Mavra is being sold.


Ike348

At least Mavropanos actually played for us


gte339i

Honestly forgot about him being transferred until they were on Univision in the US yesterday against LAFC.


crackity85

I once had a dog called Trusty. I'm never going to be able to take this guy seriously

mss1123

Now I am confused as to how he got MOTM, then............


kbj17

Hey I do IT for that university


lhn94

This guy and the american goalkeeper people say we signed in january… nothing is official?? Why did Arsenal not confirm these signings? :)


pm_me_ur_breakfast1

Arsenal did officially [confirm](https://www.arsenal.com/news/trusty-signs-club-remains-loan) the Trusty signing.


lhn94

Haha Thanks! But what about the keeper?


beetletoman

It's gonna be finalized in the summer transfer afaik


Anons15

Sideman signings, the club knows the mood


ghostrider467

Trusty the future of arsenal


agentvenom2005

I forgot we bought him, he plays in defence right


adhphd

Southern New Hampshire University, not impressed.


alittlebitbreezy

What Uni did you go to? Hope it’s Oxford or Cambridge


culturebarren

For real though, it's a diploma mill on the level of University of Phoenix


adhphd

Emory University, the Harvard of the South!


alittlebitbreezy

Not impressed. What did you study?


MEGAMAN2312

Judging by their username, a PhD in something


pht0

This reminds me of when Arsene Wenger signed Junichi Inamoto, Ryo Miayichi and South Korean Park Chu Young for the clout in Asia. Are these guys going to play for Arsenal, or just be USA hype for the next summer tours?


rk4dand

matt turner does have enough quality to be #2, not sure about trusty though


pht0

Hope so. Can’t be worst than Rúnar Rúnarsson.


chrs_mnz

This dude could absolutely line up in a back 3 formation in cup ties for us. His distribution is VERY good. He steps in pretty aggressively, which can get him caught out at times, but with a pace merchant like Tavares and an extra central defender, he could gain very valuable game time for us while on rotation. He's very low risk and if he has a great attitude in the locker room, I don't see why he can't stay on for us. Personally, he makes my 25-man roster for next season as 5th choice CB behind Benny, Gabi, Willy, and Holdini.

Albeit, he plays in the MLS, but we're also getting a second string GK from the MLS, so there's talent to be found. The high bar in the MLS is a squad player in the Prem. Simple.
