If Wenger & Pires believe in him… so do I
March 7, 2011
I am of course talking about the player Robert Pires had the following to say about, after few weeks of training with Arsenal in late 2010
“Marouane will be a big success at Arsenal, I am sure of that.
I’ve got to know him as I’ve been training with Arsenal. He has all the qualities that are needed to be a success in England. He has character, an excellent touch and technique and he’s already shown that he can score goals.
He knows he has to defend at times as well as attack and he is willing to do that.
That is why I am certain that he will be a big success at Arsenal”
Yes the news of Robin being back in contention is top on the list of Gooner chat right now… but I am certain he will not start… his presence with the squad, and the hope he could come on for 20 minutes is the boost Wenger is hoping to give the rest of the lads.
However, the man who could be the one for us in Camp Nou is our Moroccan hitman, Chamakh, who has been off form in recent weeks… but I saw a glimpse of a man who was looking back to his best at Wembley…. briefly.. and again at the Emirates last weekend.
It’s easy to forget how much he impressed us in early season when RvP was out injured…. and he did impress us!
He scored, he worked his backside off and he linked very well with the team.
I am convinced he will get to play at some point in Spain.. and he not RvP or Nik B could be the man to score the mighty away goal to take us through…. we hope.
Plenty of hyperbole on the way from other blogs -papers – radio -tv over the next 24 hours…. will leave you all to it…
I am just going to sit back and enjoy my beloved Arsenal giving their all… win, lose or draw… I love em all!
Forget Barca… it’s all about us.
