Ask anybody that knows me from the Forum, I have never had a good word for Pleb, He didnt score or even shoot enough and was wasteful with the ball. I said when he wanted to leave in the summer that it would be a blessing in disguise if he was sold.
Now we have a player who can shoot, Who can score. This is the type of player we have wanted since Pires.
Would Hleb have scored them 2 goals today? No chance
Hleb’s only attribute was he was a good dribbler. Apart from that he was weak, Didn’t like to track back and tackle and when he did he often gave away free kicks. He didn’t like to take the responsibility in shooting at goal and would often pass when clear. And for a wide man Hleb’s goals to game record is terrible.
For me we now have a more complete player in Nasri, You can tell that this lad has an eye for goal and is not scared to have a dig. I like him also because he is comfortable with ether foot and as you saw today he can have a dig with both.Nasri has great feet and can go past a player with ease.Also fantastic vision and we saw this today with an amazing pass to Benthner with the outside of the boot. Nasri can also track back and gives a better balance to the team then Hleb.
And for the record!
Hleb: Arsenal,2005–2008 appearances 89. goals 7
Nasri :Arsenal 2008 appearances 9 goals 5
Good piece of business I think?
