Allez Les Flam!

Allez Les Flam!

I know some Gooners have a completely different viewpoint with regards to Mr. Mathieu 'Gilles Grimmandi II' Flamini a.k.a. the Flamster, but I am one of those who has developed a liking for the young man. (Compared to the Grimster, Flam has bags of skill)

The reason why I am writing this is because I want to congratulate the gritty Frenchman for his first senior call-up, and wish him, hopefully, a successful debut for Les Blues and many more call-ups in the future.

As for his contribution this season in stats, Matthieu has started 16 games and came on as a substitute on 13, and produced 4 goals and 1 assist in all competitions. Most notable goal is the one coming against the Russians, where only an bad ref decision and an Essien thunderbolt deprived us of three points.

Once again congratulations Mr. Flamini!

Anyone got any ideas on why Clichy isn't in the squad? That boy is one of the best left backs around. In recent weeks he's progressed so much, Evra's playing well, but I just can't see that there are two left backs better than Gael. Abidal looks cack to me!

In fact, Flamini's a better left back than Abidal. Perhaps that's why he's been drafted in? :-)

I agree re Clichy. LD, I'm in almost exactly the same seats for the CC final as I was against the Chavs in the F.A Cup final. That has to be an omen doesn't it??

I agree, clichy is the nuts. However, Not sure Flamini should be in the squad with the talent they have..... bit like Dawson for England. With everyone fit there has gotta be 4 players ahead of him in the pecking order. not to say he is a bad player.

I always said that Clichy will be better than Cashley Hole if he avoids injuries. AW has bulked him up this year too, he and Aliadiere look like they have been doing overtime on the weights. Paul Robinson looks like he and Mido have been doing overtime in Burger King.

Yeah, well played to Flam, not too sure he's high enough of standard just yet, and the decision to omit Clichy is ridiculous. We once had the best English left back, now we have the best French!

And the French team is 100 times better than the English, so by proxy Gael is a much better player than Cashley.

The Hurricane has been a better defender for some time, but hatespur is right, he has toughened up in a big way and he can really POWER forward, he's always had the pace, now he's got the aggression to get forward. In all honesty, I don't think he's better than Cole yet (although on current form he is performing much better), but I'm so certain he'll get there. The fact is, when we sold Cashley, few people asked the question of who we'd get to replace him. That says it all.

On a side note "Cack" is an excellent word!!
