John Collard-Abou Diaby(nothing more than outstanding) 44

Posted on September 03, 2012 by Bob

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.

Vinay-How can we win something this season? 7

Posted on July 30, 2012 by admin

Hi All,

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.

John Collard: Aaron Ramsey and Abou Diaby need better from the Arsenal fans 37

Posted on April 20, 2012 by Nitesh

Hello Gooners

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.

Nitesh: Do you believe that Abou Diaby has a future at Arsenal? 46

Posted on March 23, 2012 by Nitesh

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.

Anurag – Surely Flamini must be better than Abou Diaby for Arsenal? 15

Posted on February 13, 2012 by admin

There have been several reports coming out from the past few days claiming that the AC Milan and former Arsenal midfielder Mathieu Flamini could be on his way back to the Emirates this summer.

The Frenchman’s contract with Milan is set to run out at the end of the current season, and if reports coming out of Italy are to be believed, the Rossoneri will not be offering him a contract extension, thereby allowing him to move on a free to Arsenal come the end of the season.

SVGunner: Okay so Arsenal drew – but when Podolski, Wilshere and Diaby are in the team….. 11

Where do we go now? by SVGunner

So, another draw on the board, a draw which tells us that our great run is properly over. Our form at the moment is DWWLWD. That is 11 points from a possible 18; it is not terrible, but we could reasonably have expected 15. Today’s game, especially, was disappointing.

Peter – Where will Abou Diaby fit into the Arsenal midfield now? 14

Posted on November 28, 2011 by admin

Love him or hate him, he’s back. Abou Diaby, the perennially inconsistent Frenchman is back with his idiosyncratic way of playing football. Questions will be raised. Will the Frenchman be played? How often will Wenger rely on this man? Is he really ready to play football at Arsenal’s highest level after yet another injury?

It is inevitable that Diaby will play games, even if not for the full 90 minutes or in the big matches. With Arteta, Ramsey and Song seemingly certainties for the starting lineups in the league, Diaby will slot in as cover for them.

Andrei – Arsenal Team News Ahead of Dortmund Match 2

Posted on November 23, 2011 by admin

Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger is happy to announce that the squad is almost fully fit. Except for long term absentees Bacary Sagna and Jack Wilshere, everybody in the squad will be fit and ready to play soon.

“From Saturday everybody is available. We lost Tomas Rosicky in training, he has been replaced by Abou Diaby. Rosicky has a small thigh strain.”, said the manager

“I am very happy. It’s been a little bit quicker than expected because he looked good in training, so it’s good to have him back. He has not played one minute since the start of the season and had his surgery in June, so it’s good news to have him back.”

Diaby’s back for Arsenal; should he get a starting spot? 19

Posted on November 22, 2011 by Nitesh

Abou Diaby has finally heaved himself off the treatment table after his surgery in June, and has been made available for Arsenal’s game against Dortmund tomorrow. While there is no doubt that the big Frenchman is talented, it’s a bit placid when you look at his appearences for us and realize that he’s getting 60K pounds (reportedly, but I wouldn’t be shocked if it was true anyway) a week for that.

Arsene Wenger had this to say on his return:-

Paul: Diaby has had enough time at Arsenal + Tevez, anyone ? 6

So Diaby has suffered another setback in his quest to return from injury. There is no doubting his ability when he is fit; at 6″2′, Diaby adds a big physical presence in midfield (something that we could use against some of the bigger, more physically challenging teams). In my opinion he is the prime example of a box-to-box midfielder. He is very versatile, defensively capable, keeps possession well and has a good eye for goal (with 21 goals in 152 games for Arsenal).
