3 Gooners In PFA Team Of The Year

3 Gooners In PFA Team Of The Year

It`s scant consolation to us as it`s more than likely that we`re going to finish the season potless once again after a massively promising campaign, but three Arsenal players have played their way into the PFA Premier League team of the year.

At the PFA Player of the year awards, at which Jack Wilshere was named PFA you player of the year, three goners were voted into the PL team of the year.

Bacary Sagna was voted in at right back after becoming one of the most consistent and reliable full backs in the business. Few could see the reasoning behind signing Sagna when he came to The Arsenal, however he`s established himself as a mighty fine right back for us and it`s nice to see him get some recognition.

Jack Wilshere was further awarded by his peers, after receiving the Young Player of the Year award with the natural progression into the team of the year. Wilshere has been amazing this year, possessing all the qualities of future captain material. Even when he`s having a bad game his work ethic compensates for his lack of form and if his attitude were adopted by all our players we`d probably have wrapped up the title by now.

Samir Nasri has rightly cemented himself into the team of the year after being narrowly pipped for the Player of the Year award by Tottenham`s Gareth Bale. Nasri has performed admirably this season chipping with goals, assists, swash-buckling play and simple but effective intelligent football. Nasri has a flowing style about him, gracefully gliding across the pitch whilst effortlessly keeping the ball at his feet.

So congratulations to our players, at least we won something eh?

Premier League Team of the Year:

Edwin Van der Sar
Bacary Sagna
Nemanja Vidic
Vincent Kompany
Ashley Cole
Gareth Bale
Samir Nasri
Nani
Jack Wilshere
Carlos Tevez
Dimitar Berbatov

Congrats to the Gooners included in the team of the year, well deserved. What wasn't well deserved was Bale winning the POTYA all based on one performance which his team lost anyway. Nasri, Vidic, Parker to name but a few of dozens who have been better than Bale this year and far more deserving of the award. Christ, even Theo has better stats in the league than Bale, from far less minutes. Bale may go on to be an excellent player, but right now he is nothing more than an inconsistent youngster with pace and a fondness for getting injured. Harsh? Yes. The truth? Yes.

A ***** Aaron Lennon would be truly ***** player indeed. Walcott has more than twice the PL goals and almost 4 times the assists in two thirds of the playing time Lennon has had this season so however ***** you think he is Lennon is much *****ier. But as neither got in the PFA team It's pretty irrelevant to this thread.

Nel Yid, Bale goals and assists this seaosn in the league is less than Walcotts combined, as an attacker on the wing is it not a fair question to ask why? I didn't expect anything intelligent from a mouth breathing dick head like you, shame we get so many muppets from the Spu*s board here who cannot contribute properly, unlike HY and a few others, you just show up, make a mug of your self then slither off back to whatever putrid womb you crawled from. ***k off until you have something to contribute.

two thirds of the playing time? something wrong with your maths, lennon played 35 walcott played 32, two thirds of 35 would be 23 and that is not how many games walcott has played this year, almost 4 times the assists, hahahahahahahahaha, there really is something wrong with your maths, lennon has made 7 assists, so has walcott made over 25? no he has 10 which is no where near 4 times, yes he does have more than twice the premier league goals but he is a more attacking player, almost a striker as oppose to a winger so get your stats right before shouting abuse at people you ******** ****

Playing time you thick C*'t that means minutes on the pitch. You were probably one of the mongs singing your just a s*'t Barcelona to the Madrid team as they pumped you 5-0 weren't you?

O.K never saw it said minutes, anyway walcott not playing doesn't make it harder for him to get assists and goals, it makes it alot easier, coming on against tired legs with his blistering pace, it makes it easy for him, and if your so in love with stats vdv has better goals to minute ratio than fibreglass, and so does modric and that is saying something, also surely there is a reason that walcott doesnt get the game time, he hasnt been injured all season wenger clearly doesn't think he is up to the task, and walcott should effectively be 10 times the player lennon is as that is how much more you payed for him

"Walcott not playing doesn't make it harder for him to get assists and goals, it makes it easier" - Where do these people come from?
