Arsenal have the best full-backs in the Premiership...Maybe even Europe and pretty soon the World!!!

I had an interesting comment on my previous post...."Micah Richards is a Gooner, but will he be a Gunner?"....from a Gooner named Northbank. This is a part of that comment.

"The other advantage of playing for us would be playing along side the two best full backs in the world."

It got me thinking and I have to say thanks to Northbank for writing this comment as it has finally made me write this post. I've been thinking this for a long time and I'll go as far as saying that Clichy and Sagna are by far the best full backs in the Premiership and maybe even Europe. I would not exchange either of these players as potentially they can become the best full backs in the world. To be fair you could say that they are already the best full backs in the world? Northbank thinks so and I'm sure many others would agree.

Arsenal seem to be able to churn out left backs like some sort of left back making factory machine! (OK!!!!!) Over the years the quality of players that have played in this position for the Gunners have been unrivalled by anyone. From an early age, I very vaguely remember Kenny Samson, who from time to time I bump into as he lives near me. A lovely man who will always stop and chat and believe me, he loves Arsenal! Nigel Winterburn, who I know we bought, but turned into a top quality left back, can't forget Silvinho who still plays for Barca and the player before Clichy, erm what his name?....cAshley Cole is it?! Yes thats right, cAshley WAS the best but since leaving Arsenal has stagnated. And I'm so pleased he left as we had a great deal from him going. We have a captain supreme and a left back called Gael Clichy who will be the best left back in the world without a doubt. He is superb and is so consistent and I thank you cAshley for being a greedy little git because we have benefited from it immensely!

Sagna has come into this Arsenal team and played like he has been at the club for years. He seems made for the rough and tumble of the Premiership and is massively underrated by fans other than Gooners. When he signed I could'nt work it out at first, we had Eboue who had just played a very good campaign previously. I'd heard of him and knew he was a good player and that he was voted into Ligue 1 team of the year, (Thanks Eurosport!) But why? Well he has certainly shown why. He too is so consistent and seems to get up and down the line all game. Just like Clichy does.

I feel that both players WILL become the best full backs in the world one day. They are at the right club to develope their undoubted talents and will no doubt be subject to huge money bids from Barcelona and Real Madrid one day. And I know they will tell them to get STUFFED!! They seem to love playing at Arsenal and I can't wait to see this team unfold into the greatest Arsenal team ever. And Sagna and Clichy will be mentioned in the years to come as Arsenal greats.

Keep it Goonerish..........

Easy people....

4real I have to agree with your analysis and coments....

I've been argying with Liverpoo/Manure/Chelski and Yid supporters who unfortunately my friends comprise of...ashamed to say it but hey.....

CLICHY/SAGNA - are truely a wicked pair of fullbacks....these "boys" are strong quick and well and truely up for it! Even when someone has given them a little bit of a challenge they have still always come out on top overall.

There is no fullbacks in the premiership that comes close to them !

I believe they are the best fullbacks in the world today. I can't think of a another pair I could swap them for, alright may be if CAFU was 20 years younger then yes but other than this no one!

You get me!

Rasta!Man!

I'm a arsenal fan myself. I agree with you that they are the best in the league and maybe the world. I would not say by a massive amount though. I mean for and i hate to say it Patrice Evra is a fantasic left back and could also be rated as one of the best in the world. Right backs there just is no one else that stands out over sagna, he has done amazing for arsenal in his first season, and i feel he is not giving enough credit. They say most players need atleast a season to adapt to the prem but not this man, if only england had a right back as good as him. I would not of minded seeing richards there a bit more was fantasic there but looks even better at center back.

nice blog anyways
