I have to ask the question, where is Flamini?? I don’t think he has signed a new deal if we haven’t heard from him today, but thats the thing, we haven’t heard anything from him! So we shall have to wait and see, I only hope we won’t miss him too much if he has gone.
Clichy talks about the transfer rumours saying:
“It’s up to everyone to think what they want to do.
“But we’ve got so many examples of players who leave to win the Champions League and titles, and that didn’t prove them right.
So true Clich, how many times have we seen ex-Arsenal players falter elsewhere. He went on to praise the squad, and their belief:
“I think that we have to believe in the quality we have in the team at the moment.“I believe in it, most players believe in it and I’m sure we can do it.
“So we just have to stick together and work hard because with the team we have, we’re so young, the future is in front of us and we’re going to do something great that’s for sure.”
Thats the sort of thing we want to hear, inspiring stuff, and it’s all true!
There’s a good season review here, which points out the fact that we played very well for most of the season and should be positive about next season.
We’ve taken Ergotelis’ 16-year-old striker Nikos Karelis on trial according to Setanta. At the weekend he became the youngest player ever to play in a Greek Super League game. One for the future if we do take him on.
Eboue wants to keep his spot on the wing, after a lot of critcism this year.
“I have worked very hard to change my game to be able to play in midfield. Now, I want to keep playing there and keep improving to become a better right midfielder.
“I need to do better and be more effective next season. I want to show the coach that he got it right by asking me to play there. I want to pay him back.”
I think he is a decent defender, but he hasn’t impressed me at all on the wing. His passing and shooting are not up to scratch, many times he has found himself in front of goal, only to fluff the shot. He also dives a bit.
I don’t hate him, just don’t think he should play on the wing. You can’t say he hasn’t tried.
