I’ve always been fond of the tall Belgian. His impressing figure, long legs and afro you just can’t miss in a field full of shaved skulls (I mean you Howard Webb) and long ‘lion king’ haircuts(I mean you, everyone else). I think there’s not one team that wouldn’t be jumping up and down by the chance of him joining them (maybe not Man City, since I think Pellegrini will look to Spain for his reinforcements). And it comes as a surprise for me, that nobody has snatched him before – 23 million doesn’t strike me as an amount Chelsea/United couldn’t pay for him.
I know that this question has already been asked a lot of times. But from what I’ve seen, opinions are still divided on him, and a lot of fans haven’t been able to decide. So I want to ask one last time: Do Arsenal fans feel it is time to move on Diaby?
ARSHAVIN:A HERO WHO MUST BE RISE!!!!!
Most of you might think I am crazy….when I call the little Russian a hero, but I am a die hard Andrey Arshavin fan, and Arsenal have seen what an impact he can make if you give him time. This season Arshavin has hardly played at all, and if he did feature it was for about 10 minutes. How can you except a player who has not played all season to perform in 10 minutes??
Most of the Arsenal fans, and Arsene Wenger, are not looking at the Arshavin he could be if given a chance….
We’re not gonna take it right?
Still clenching your fist and cursing the board and Wenger? Come on, you guys should know better, except for loan deals the likelihood of any signings in the January transfer window is unlikely.
Wait, what happened suddenly that there seems to be a dearth of players wanting to come to Arsenal? We are still considered among the best in the world (pinch of salt please), we are supposedly among the richest clubs in the world, so why is it that no one worth his salt wants to come to us?
Its been a very strange start to the premiership season and in most peoples view a positive start from the Arsenal. Our new signings Podolski and Cazorla seem to be taking to the premiership like ducks to water (Early days). But all in all it would seem our wonderful club seems more of a solid outfit from start to end.
Hello Gooners I wish you well.
Today I want to talk about a complete football performance from a man who I, and I’m sure a few others, have believed in but also been frustrated with. I don’t know what Wenger gave the lads for breakfast but it was a whole new team out there. From Arteta to Santi Cazorla making the midfield their own and the defensive display was also much improved where Gibbs now holds his position and Vermaelen and Mertersacker bossed all. But going back to a man who has seen more of the injury table than Jimmy Bullard (Abou Diaby). This lad has had many critics in his days at Arsenal but on his day every one of us has seen what he is capable of doing. This blog is not about getting over excited about one good game but it’s about hats of to a young lad that can be a tremendous talent.
3 weeks to go, 3 weeks to go, 3 weeks to go, I think all us Gooners are counting the days now. Or some of us are thinking, oh no only 3 weeks to go?. Whatever the state of mind, I think its fair to say that we all can’t wait for the season to start.
As we approach the new season, the question on every Gooner’s mind is, can we actually win anything this season?. Instead of asking can we, let’s see how we CAN win.
Today I would like to write a small blog and ask fans a simple question. WHY? Over the last couple of months these two young talented men have been targeted with in my opinion terrible abuse. Ok, maybe they are not the best players in out squad but in my opinion, when fit they’re very valuable additions. I believe these young men have been treated in a disgraceful way by some of our fans. When I look at other players that we have that don’t cut it at the club and when I look at players like Aaron and Diaby, it really is bad at the comments they have received. Both of these players before their horrific injuries were looking at being first team regulars. And that is what I’mm getting across on this blog.
Let’s start with the Arsenal.com description of the player, shall we?
When he’s fit and firing on all cylinders, Abou is one of Arsenal’s most dynamic players.
Physically strong and reassuringly tall, the French midfielder can transform defence into attack with a twist, a turn and a driving run. What’s more he loves to get forward to support the attack and contributes his fair share of goals.
Abou used to operate on the left of midfield but he has benefited from Arsenal’s switch to a 4-2-3-1 formation and now he spends more time in his favoured central role.
