Will Ribery

show up at Arsenal this season? I sure hope so! The French TGV seems to be the most likely of the French players to be added to Arsenal’s roster this time around. He stuck to playing for Marseille last time around, but reports of his growing interest in a Premiership club abound. I say that it would be a great move for him, acclimatize him to some really fast football, and his legs would agree. Pace with control is always welcome, and Arsenal’s midfield would benefit greatly from his threat of being able to take off every time he got the ball.

With other speed stars like Walcott and Clichy, Arsenal could add a dimension of high-speed breaks which I feel they need sorely. The mere notion of Ribery breaking through and carrying the ball all the way and then tapping it to RVP, Walcott et al for a simple slot into the goal is mouth-watering.

Plus he would get to play with a  French coach and the French god Henry, which would make any young midfielder’s day. Look forward to seeing him this season.
