Thank You Bobby
Robert Pires' decision to join Villarreal may not have come as any great shock, however, it's still a sad day to see one of the greatest goal scoring midfielders the Premiership has ever seen leave the club.
I'd prefer not to reflect on the reasons of Bobby's departure, but more on his illustrious career at Arsenal that brought some truely wonderful moments.
His goals against Liverpool, Lazio, Tottenham, Southampton (twice), Aston Villa and his famous penalty against Man City need little explination.
Pires brought some wonderful moments that we will never forget, moments like This one. I'd never seen it before today, but listen to the Spurs fans 'whoop' with delight as they think one of their own has got the better of Bobby, and thier whoops turn into to their more recognisable whinges as Bobby has a bit of fun of his own.
It's hard to put into words the way Arsenal fans feel about Bobby, so I won't try, I'll simply let you enjoy some of the finer moments of a brilliant French player who will always be remembered.
Thank You Bobby.
