Sagna Out To Prove He's The Best

Sagna Out To Prove He's The Best

It was a marvelous game today, and you just had to know the equaliser was coming. All the players had good games, but in my eyes there was one especially that stood out above the rest, Bacary Sagna. His defending today was sheer brilliant. He won slide tackles left and right, he charged down Ashley Young's crosses, and he left the crowd in awe with his spectacular bicycle kick on the goal line to save Arsenal's halftime lead. Sagna had a blinding first season with the Gunners, but has naturally experienced a small sophomore slump this season. Though in this game he showed England and the world the talent he has, and I doubt you can find a better right back in the world. Well done Bacary!

Good shout GK. Fantastic show from Bacs, and he was our MOM tonight. He performs a lot better with support from Eboue down the right and that makes a huge difference to his attacking game as well. He joins in more attacks with Eboue around, coz of the defensive solidity and balance that Eboue lends to the side. I thought Eboue also had a good game overall (although if he hadnt been asleep for the cross that led to their 2nd goal, it would have been excellent).

Is it a coincidence that Sagna play's his best when he has Eboue in front of him? I think not

Best right back ever. But Diaby deserves a mention. He was class. van Persie...two games running any time soon? ;-)

Sagna plays better with Eboue in front of him? I don't think there is much doubt about that. RvP put in a great stint as a lone striker, offers more subtlety and carries a genuine goal threat in his game.

He missed that chance. That is what i am talking about lads. Not his ability. We all know he has it. But he always fails to score after he does it in one game.

He isn't the first striker to miss a chance and it's hardly a criticism if RvP only manages to score every other game. He does try to hit the ball too hard sometimes though.

Its a big criticism. If you have a striker on your hands who has some sort of mental block that does not allow himself to score two games running or produce something of genuine worth then we have a problem. Especially with one so talented. Fair enough if Ade fails to score, he is a bit rough round the edges. But van persie should gobble up the chances he is given. Too flakey I say.

RvP has scored in successive games against Newcastle and Blackburn this season. It has nothing to do with mental blocks - more to do the width of the woodwork. The things some people will invent to find fault can be quite incredible at times.
