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.
