I’ve been trying out some new football boots from the guys at Soccerpro. I gave the Nike CTR360 Trequartista boots a go and they are fantastic. I wore them for the first time with my 6 a-side team the other day and I noticed the difference. They are light and feel pretty good on your feet.
Patrick Vieira was undoubtedly one of the best Arsenal players of all time. He would certainly make my all time XI.
He played 279 games for Arsenal between 1996 and 2005, and scored 29 goals. Vieira was an impressive midfielder who could win the ball with ease and then attack.
Vieira had a fiery temper, and his rivalry with Roy Keane was probably the most famous the Premiership will ever see. Vieira was still getting into trouble at Euro 2008, this time with ex-Man Utd rival Van Nistelrooy – watch the video here.
He took over the Arsenal captaincy after Tony Adams’ retirement in 2002 and kept the role, until he left the club for Juventus in 2005.
Here’s one fan’s compilation of his six best goals:
Five of our best players this season. Love them or hate them I think most people would agree!
The centre of our team, we rely on his creativity and passing, he is arguably our biggest player.
He has left Arsenal for a fat contract at the San Siro. He was most improved player in the squad.
He is like a crazy dog who doesnt stop running! He covers a huge amount of ground every match. Constantly winning the ball for us in midfield and redistributing. He is also an excellent passer of the ball, although his technical abilities are overshadowed by Cesc.
At the beginning of the season was a squad player, he became an integral part of the squad. We will have to replace him now!
Amazing in defence and attack. His runs and crosses provide a huge source of attacking creativity. Tireless, pacy and always back to cover the defence.
Our other full back, newly signed this season, fitted in seamlessly and made right-back his own.
He adds attacking pace down the right, and can cross well. He is like Clicky in that he is very good defensively, but fast and attack-minded.
A striker who sometimes comes under criticism. He is our top goalscorer, leads the line, holds the ball and can head the ball or shoot, he has allowed us to diversify our game and has flourished since Henry left. You can argue with a 30 goal season!
I could mention almost any of our players, with a few exceptions, but these are the pick of the bunch for me!
