Hector Bellerin Recalled From Loan

apparently folding someone in half is a viable strategy now - Jamie McDonald

Not "recalled" in the "I Remember That Guy!" sense, but kinda

Arsenal team depth is in the news today, as they attempt to, y'know, have some depth by recalling Hector Bellerin from his originally-year-long loan at Watford:

On the one hand, as Arseblog notes, this is actually a somewhat puzzling move, but on the other hand, as we all know by now, Arsenal have a grueling fixture list coming up.  With Vermaelen hurt, it can't be a bad thing to have another option on the bench, particularly at the back - even if at this stage in Bellerin's career his first-team shirt's name would read STOPGAP on the back rather than BELLERIN.

So, welcome back, Hector.  Train hard with the first team.  No offense, but I hope Arsenal don't need you just yet.
