Evra and Abidal are not better than Clichy

I was reading teletext earlier and was amazed to find that Gael Clichy was not included in the French squad for the Euro's.

He has been superb this season and was even named in the Premiership team of the year, ahead of Evra!!!

I sometimes wonder whether the France coach, Raymond Domenech, needs to go back to specsavers and get a refund for his glasses. If he can't see that Clichy is better than Evra and Abidal then he's obviously got the wrong prescription.

Gael is rapidly becoming the best left-back around and to be continually over looked by Domenech is a mystery that even Scooby Doo and his gang couldn't solve.

Although a disappointment to Clichy, the news is good for Arsenal. After a long hard season Gael will have the summer off and can recharge his batteries.

Gael, don't worry mate. Us Gooners recognise how good you are and know your true worth.

We all know that you are the best left-back in the world.

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

Could it once again be Domenech's infamous Zodiac nonsense?

"Domenech also said he believed Leos made bad defenders, adding, "When I have got a Leo in defence, I've always got my gun ready. I know he's going to want to show off at one moment or another and cost us.""

Yep, Gaƫl is a Leo.

Gael is much better than Evra. The France manager is deluded

I think that Evra is slighty just ahead of Clichy at the moment but Clichy is almost there.

Evra ahead in what?
I thought Gael was voted the best left back in the prem league!

Domenech needs shooting, the only thing we have to thank him for is that two of our players wont come back injured.

Sagna is not in the team either.

i think that evra, abidal and clichy are about the same level its just that those two are older and have established themselves earlier.
its just one of those things, clichy will go on to be better than those two though, hes reached this level at a much younger age!

I know its petty but how nice to c AC out of the CL!!!

Sorry, but Evra is quite away ahead of Clichy. Clichy is great, but that mistake at Birmingham highlights his inexperience still.

Evra is a cunt of epic proportions, but he is solid as a rock and hard as nails, more beefy than cliche. I'd hate to come up against him more than CLichy. Clichy is better going forward, way better at dribbling, not as good allround or defensively. If Clichy didn't make that insane mistake at Birmingham we would have won the league, in my opinion.

Absolute madness. Gael clichy is good i will never deny that but better than evra and abidal. Im sorry can u arsenal fans breathe with ur head so far up his rectum.......He may develop over time but for now he plays 4TH FIDDLE TO EVRA ABIDAL ASHLEY COLE (WHO IS STILL BETTER ALTHOUGH HES NOT THE PLAYER HE USED 2 BE) AND THEN UR BOY. KUDOS ON COMIN 3RD

i disagree, that was one real mistake over the whole season. and the mistake was more the referees than his. evra does make mistakes as well
i really believe evra is as good as clichy on the ball, at dribbling etc. they are both awesome, and clichy is as good as evra defensively.
clichy has a bit more pace but evra is also bloody quick. its really impossible to put anything between them

lol
clichy has been better than ashley cole for at least 2 years now.
the only reason anyone thinks cole is particularly good is cos he had a good game against ronaldo in the euros 4years ago.
hes nothing special on the ball, just solid. at one-on-ones clichy is miles better offensively and defensively.
clichy is quicker and stronger. the only thing that cole does that clichy doesnt (because hes not such a prick) is dive in and foul people to hurt them
what exactly makes cole better?!

Clichy made two mistakes: The goal against Man City and then the Birmingham incident (which he made brilliantly up for, it was not a penalty). I think Evra and Gael are pretty equally good but Abidal is a fucking shit player. What has he ever done, he can't cross, he is clumsy he doesn't read the game well and although fast, not close to Evra and lightyears away from Clichy.

I am glad that Clichy won't play in the Euro but freaking pissed for the hand of him because he really deserved to be called upon. Every player wants to play in the world cup and the european championship. The good thing is that he is such a strong person. He will look at it and say: I just need to do even better. Some players might lose confidence and think they are not good enough, but Clichy is not that kind. He has overcome amazing obstacles before. He nearly died as a kid and his career was almost over because of injuries. This will just mean he will be twice the player next year.

abidal has sick skills like evra n clichy
france coach likes him cos hes taller but still quick

Geal is 10 times better then Abidal
I have seen him playing for Barcelona.....im not impressed
Patrick Evra is good player, have played very good for United

i think i can understand why clichy is not in the squad. clichy and evra are both equally good and they are probably better than abidal but abidal has way more experience than the two. so the manager is always going to pick the experienced guy and one of the other two. now evra has won two premier league titles in recent years and he still has a part to play in CL final so i think it makes the choice pretty easy. but why on earth sagna is not in the squad is beyond me. seriously, i have not seen a better right back than sagna for a long long time. i hope france pay for not bringing sagna to uero2008. i hope cesc beats the crap out of france in the tournament.

it was the mistake at birmingham
that tells me he s 10 times better than evra 100 times better than abidal but he gets cocky with his abilities. he needs to stay focued. evra shades it just, because of his professionalism. with time clichy will surpass them all.

What kind of an FA hires a fucking coach who bases decisions on the Zodiac?!?!?! That guys is a fruity fruit fruity one. But all I can say is thank you thank you thank you you silly cunt with wacky glasses for not playing many of our players and getting them injured.

Clichy does blow Evra away...who is just not that extraordinary and special like Clichy

david said...

its ok and good for arsenal actually..wenger recently said that this season CL qualifying stage could be the most difficult one due to the players that played for EURO..if clichy is not included in the squad, he'll be fresh for the qualifying stage. we need him in arsenal. it's a good news indeed.

Clichy gets cocky??????????? Yeah I rememebr all the times he's got cocky, NOT!!!
We shouldnt even mention the Birmingham event as although this was the only lapse of concentration I have ever seen from Clichy he did rectify his mistake and get the tackle in only for another deluded ref to get a penalty decision wrong against us.
As for this Zodia nonsense Domenech should be shot and there is no point discussing his squad now I have heard that!!!!!

BimitarDerbatov said...

i'm surprised that Clichy is not includede but Evra is still a very good left full.. every bit as good as Clichy..

however i do rate Abidal... think he's excellent.. prob better than Clichy..

Summerspur said...

clearly clichy is better than evra, i would even go to far as saying he is the best player that has ever lived.. oh hang on, thats addebeayoor or eboooue.. its a hard a one. how about everyone whoever played for arsenal is the best player ever in the universe.

get real girls, or do you see abidal week in week out. its my guess if abidal played for arsenal he would be the best in the world, if "bruce dvd" ping pong yo lee played for arsenal he would be the best ...... ok, maybe thats stretching it a bit.
