Flamini: My Greatest Night

Flamini: My Greatest Night

Arsenal's 8th left back of the season, Mathieu Flamini, says last night's incredible victory in Madrid is the greatest night of his career.

The French midfielder is still only 21 and, if he stays with Arsenal will have many more nights like these, but upto press, that was the best.

When asked if it was the best moment of his career, he replied “Yes it is,”

“It is very, very, very nice. To play in the Santiago Bernabeu, a magic stadium, and against a magic team, it is just a dream for a young player like me.

“I was not nervous but we tried to stay sharp and I think we did it well. Against a big team like Real Madrid we have to concentrate for 90 minutes. I think that we did that so it was a good performance.

“We were good tactically so it was difficult for them to play. It was a great victory. We are the first English team to win here but the most difficult part will be at Highbury. That will be a very hard game but I believe in myself.”

It is always difficult for a any player to play out of position, but Flamini has coped admirably, and probably the best of the left back stand-in's.

His best game of the season and he was out of position! I think it was among everyone's greatest nights!

Ok lets not get too carried away. Arsenal turned up for the game but I didn't see any opposition arrive. The most spirited efforts coming from Beckham who continued to make room, runs and plenty of crosses as Flamini gave too much space for the England captain. To be honest, it was disappointing that Arsenal didn't come away with more and certainly had the chances too. Madrid looked like a push over. Still, no one would blame you for savouring the moment, but don’t make a 5 course meal out of it.

If Spurs are allowed to bang on that they are in 4th spot by only a couple of points with 12 games of the season still to go, I'm sure the Arsenal are allowed to celebrate being the first ever English side to win in the Bernabeau, no matter who turned up.

This is one important game that the entire team did well but more importantly they must maintain their momentum and don't get carried away even though this was a very big result. Up coming games with Blackburn and Fulham will be critical.
