Mikel Arteta ( He may look like a action man figure, but he is the most consistent player in the league.)
Hello Gooners I wish you all well.
Alexander Song (Who)? That’s right, he has moved on and so have we. In a strange way it seems we have a better team than last year and that’s without the unfaithful Dutchman. Mikel Arteta is a joy to watch, no airs and graces and just gets on with it. What really does impress me with the Spaniard is the way he has the ability and method to change his wonderful game.
For Everton he was the flair, the man that would score the goals and make it happen, but now he does the same for Arsenal but in a much different approach (Incredible). I don’t think there is one Gooner on this site that can challenge these views. A strong and trusted player that I’m sure most of you would like to see first on the team sheet.
I think this blog is more of a homage to a player I’ve seen being a really true professional footballer of the utmost brilliance. It really is a pleasure to watch at times but it’s not all flair and skill but the direction and passing ability and movement that he has to start a wonderful attack. It’s also great we have the wizard Cazorla and the great Jack to return (Things really are starting to get good).
Also, in my eyes and I’m sure others, he is a worthy candidate to wear the captain’s arm band. In my honest opinion I believe Arteta’s game is hidden within the shadows to the non Arsenal fan at times. But any football fan with any common sense for the game can see the pure craft the man has for the game.
It also impresses me that he never has a bad game (Steady as always) Gooners, do we not think Arteta is worth a Spanish call up?. Yes we all know how many great players the Spanish team has but in sheer respect to the man who was the under-21 captain he bloody deserves it. Some hasty Gooners may come on here and say I sing his praises because he is an Arsenal player (Maybe so), But any fool can see Mikel is a credit to the premiership.
I also am led to believe Arteta’s pass rate was the second highest, or first, in Europe last year (Amazing). So my question to you is, have we not got the most or one of the most consistent players in the premiership or maybe even Europe right now. I’m not saying he is the best player in the world but the job he does is without question as good as anyone else out there right now and last year.
Gooners, give me your assessment on Arteta and how do you feel the midfield pass merchant has done for our great club. Do you believe I praise him much too highly and question my views on his ability and think when Wilshire returns it will be him that gives way? Or tell me what your midfield would be when everyone is fit. One thing is for sure, Wenger has a major headache to come when all our players return. But one thing’s for sure, Arteta can’t be dropped. So what the hell do we do? Gooners I thank you for reading.
