Thank You Too Yossi!

Thank You Too Yossi!

As the transfer window slammed shut last September Arsene Wenger made a late move to loan Chelsea`s Yossi Benayoun.

Many people thought it was an act of desperation, whether or not it was is debatable, but what isn`t is Yossi`s effort and contribution this season. He spent a lot of time on the bench, but always gave it his all when he got the chance.

Indeed Yossi got us off to a great start today with a goal in the 4th minute. After the game he took to Twitter to thank everyone at the club.

He said "I want to thank the Arsenal management staff and players for giving me the opportunity to be part of this great club, many thanks."

He added "What a great way to finish, great win, 3rd place and to score again. Many thanks to the AFC fans for support me through all season."

Thank you too Yossi, it`s been a pleasure.

I wish he was staying too. I'd guess that wenger would try get him to stay, but at his age he's probably looking for a team that can offer him more first team action.

I'm happy for him, he's a great player. I am thoroughly *****ed off that we decided to loan such a quality team-player out to a rival when our squad could've used his creativity. Still, congrats to him. Good player, great attitude.

I've found a name for him and that is: Tottenham tormentor. Sign him up, Arsene

Is he really going to return? I want to bet if he gets an offer from Arsene and we reach an agreement for him, he will stay. He was absolutely vital today. In my view, our best player today; played with no nerves, unlike all of our other players who seemed conscious of the occasion. I wouldnt agree it may be as he had little to lose. Massive contribution this season.

I don;t want him to stay because we should be after better players, but he has been great for us.

But if he' been great for us why don't you want him to stay? Having a deep squad is what we need. But I don't think he would be happy being a squad player, can't say I blame him either. Talented guy.

Goofle, players like Yossi and Arteta don't get the headlines as world beating players who make the wanted transfer lists of top clubs but they have proven to be hungry, experienced, battle hardened and smart. Yossi has done for Arsenal what a more hyped player perhaps wouldn't.
