Flamini is undroppable and one of the best players in the League
By Ryan (The Flamster) Hill
Who would have seriously predicted it?
I think I and many other Gooners thought he always had fantastic commitment and work rate, a great attitude and some decent ability but I must admit I didn't think we'd miss him if he left last summer.
He's not just been amazingly awesome; he's been our most consistent player and hasn't had a single bad game all year.
When he doesn't play the midfield always seems to look weak now. We give away more cheap goals, seem to lack pace and there's no bite.
The best thing about the Flamster is that opposition players are terrified of him. They often give the ball away cheaply just when they hear his foot steps behind them.
And I love nothing more than seeing yet another misplaced pass because someone was shit scared that he was gonna get them any moment.
Not only has he been defensively brilliant this year, but he seems to be much sharper and quicker on the ball and generally a technically more skillful player in general.
His assist was something any winger would be proud of and let's not forget that he's just as good at right AND left back as in Central Midfield. I can't believe what a player he's turning into this year, he's playing like the captain and ruling everything.
There're few things I like more in the world than saying I was well off the mark when it came to predicting a player's potential as not really being good enough for the arse.
Top marks Matty, now sign a f***ing 6 year contract and we can all forget about a Central Midfielder again any time in the next well....6 years.
