Gibbs will help avenge Capello
August 9, 2010
So Cashley blanked Fabio at Wembley yesterday? haa
Regardless of that, Capello will see, what us Gooners have seen and known about for some time, Kieron Gibbs is the best left back at Arsenal right now, sorry Gael, but he is.
Cole seems to be coming to the end of his playing curve, off the field problems continue to blight the little bugger, young Gibbs will never have a better chance than this to grasp the England Number 3 shirt… and keep it.
Attack wise, he is already there, he has a sweet left boot, as seen in Poland in recent days, and is never frightened to shoot when the opportunity is on.
His crossing is infinitely better than Clichy’s.
Defensively he will continue to improve, his pace helps him get out of situations, but he does need to continue to improve that area of his game.
When I compare Cashley, Clichy and Gibbs.. all aged 20 odd… Gibbs is the clear winner for me.
If Fabio continues with the dated 442, Kieron may even be suited to the left-wing spot, he was originally seen as a left winger for our youths, and played a blinder against Inter Milan in said position a few years back in the Emirates Cup thingy.
Really looking forward to this Hungary friendly, with Jack also on board, surely the Italian must play both young guns to see what they can give.
The Arsenal Golden Generation is beginning to pay Club and Country.
JET must break through now he has been finally given a position to master, centre forward big man, Heskey with skill.
We know how much Fabio likes Emile, surely a matter of months before JET is seen as the natural replacement… who else do England have coming through in that role?
Arsenal and Wenger are nicely in shape to help England over the next decade.
These youngsters are in the mould of Arsenal/Wenger, technique is king. Nobody cares about a player who can run all day and get stuck in any longer.
Players who are comfortable on the ball, in all areas of the pitch will rule the next decade… it is highly concievable that the starting eleven in the 2014 World Cup team will consist of 5 Arsenal players.
The Germans showed the World this summer what it takes to get a young international team to play well.
Wenger has been bashed in recent years for not helping the national team, the coming years will see many change their tunes.
A familiar tale.
