fabregas - the team's bran.
song - team's heart.
i wonder who would be the team's testicles?
...................
Vermaelen, he seems pretty ballsy.
I agree with Song being the team's heart, in my opinion he's one of the most underrated players in the league this season.

Yeah! This is a good comment, in fact I was very happy when I read the comment because one could visibly see that, it is Song that works for Fabregas.

Song and Vermalen read the game like no other, Fabregas and Arshavin can dictate the game like no other.
All in all we are shaping up to be a great footballing team.
Shame we don't get the rub with the injuries.

Good to see Denilson back and covering every blade of grass. him and Song on form together would go a long way to making us champions!

Couldn't agree more. Song deserves all the praise he can get, he is soo underrated. The guy works his socks off every time. He turned out to be a real gem and I'm so glad he just signed new contract with us.
Denilson had another screamer, what a goal! Hope he can repeat that against Chelsea.
Injuries is a worry but our future looks very bright and I think we're headed towards Arsenal domination.

My attitude is that only a very very few have certain attributes that you cannot teach. Yes they may be shocking for a while, but they can be taught the seemingly easier stuff and therefore can be developed.

Take Diaby. The way he ghosts past players you cant teach, add simple ball retention and a foot in a challenge to his game, as well as positional experience (all teachable things) then we have nexts years revelation...

_______________________________________________________

A good point that I agree with, especially in Diaby’s case.

The guy can play, and as you say, he has those attributes that you cannot teach (like you, his ability to beat players has always caught my eye), but needs a good coach to develop his ‘football brain’. I suppose the big question is, CAN he develop a ‘football brain’? Well, as Wenger & Rice are easily the two best coaches in the Prem’ he has every chance to.

Imagine what they’d do with a talent like Babel who’s languishing in the Liverpool side!

Song has impressed me after what was an indifferent start to the season when he wasn’t living up to his potential. He still needs to work a little on the timing of his challenges, but that minor quibble aside he is top drawer!
