mostly a defensive midfielder. scored some very important goals for arsenal and has done hgihly respectable work. never have i been unhappy with his performance. not the most talented guy in the squad. but his hard work and ethic gives him full points. sometimes disappears from the team. not the first teamer yet. arsene has played him more often this year.
kind of guy who will rol his sleeves up and take the task head on. kind of a mix of roy keane and park. funny im comparing to manu players. as in stern-ness from roy keane and the running ability from park. he can run a lot and has a lot of stamina. pops in with the odd goal. most recently and importantly against chelsea at chelsea.
captaincy material definately if he can stay here for 3 more years. played as left back for almost a year when ashley cole and clichy were injured. and i remember he played right back for some time too. so he's versatile.


I'm planning to blog some more from now on. it will mostly be arsenal related stuff or general topics. If nothing, it will get me back to typing and putting words to my thoughts.

tycoon by harold robbins

From Publishers Weekly
The enduring Robbins's 23rd novel chronicles the obsessively lustful life and times of a mythical cavalier of radio and TV in an impish, sometimes romanticized history of American broadcasting. Newly graduated with honors from Harvard in 1931, Jack Lear marries the snobby debutante daughter of a prominent Boston arms manufacturer. Grandson of a Jewish intellectual who fled Prussian oppression and made a fortune as a California junkman, Jack resists his boorish father's demand that he work in the family business and returns to Boston to buy a pioneer radio station, bolstered by his grandparents' gift of a cool $1 million. The narrative traces Lear's entrepreneurial career over 60-odd intrepid years during which, flying by the seat of his pants, he builds a dominant TV network. In trademark Robbins fashion, the plot unfolds in a constant parade of freewheeling adultery, sibling incest, sadomasochism and bondage. Recounted in his flat narrative style, Robbins's litany of erotic exercises quickly becomes boring. Nevertheless, the complex cast of charismatic characters is well-calculated to spark speculation in the posh power rooms and boardrooms of New York, Boston and Hollywood over "who's actually who." Wooden prose notwithstanding, the intricate blend of corporate intrigue and carnal gymnastics makes this a highly seductive read.
