I’m still thinking about how well Bacary Sagna played in the centre of defence on Saturday.
This has been a funny old season so far for our French right back. He’s gone from being one of the best right backs in the game, to being the most inconsistent in the Premier League. Not the kind of performances we have been used to witnessing.
But on Saturday, we all watched the performances of old from him. he was here, there, everywhere. Whether that be with foot or body, he let nothing by him and with body came soul, and he sure had that.
He was immense!
So should he stay there?
Koscielny has been having a mare in the middle and we all know he can play right back and regardless of that, we have Carl Jenkinson and Nico Yennaris who are both good right backs.
No doubt the Jenkinson critics will now jump on and bleat on about how he’s not good enough, he could have cost us the game on Saturday, he should be sold etc etc etc…
Poppycock I say.!
He was hard done by on Saturday if we are to compare the other fouls which were allowed to go unpunished and this guy is a Gooner, he’ll give his all for Arsenal. Don’t ever forget that as it’s something many fans call for quite often.
Seriously though, if playing central gets Sagna back to playing at the top of his game, the team will only benefit. Wenger likes manoeuvring players around the pitch. This one could actually work!
This coming Saturday Jenkinson will be serving his one match ban in any case but we can expect so see a couple of changes to a side which will face Blackburn. Not too many though I hope, I want us to win this cup….
Personally I feel these next few few matches are huge and will play a huge part in how we finish the season. I’m not overly fussed about the Champions League fixture against Bayern, I’d rather we focussed on the FA Cup, winning our next two league matches and push on from there. Of course, if we happen to beat Bayern I won’t complain!
Sky Sports reported yesterday that the Vasco da Gama youngster Indio is heading to us for a trial.
I haven’t a clue who he is and I couldn’t find anything on Wikki about him either, all I could find was ‘the highly-rated teenage midfielder will spend a few days training with the Gunners and is determined to make an impression’.
Talking to Globo Esporte he said:
I’m anxious for this new stage in my life, I’ll spend a week at Arsenal. It will be cool, I hope I enjoy it.
Of course I have the dream of playing for a European club, but everything has its right time. It will be a good experience. I want to learn.
Do you know any more about this kid, if so, do share with us all……
That’s it for another day, have a good one..
