Well there you have it. Wrighty7 is like a bus. You wait ages for an article and then three come along at once!
I don't know why I have blogged so much today. It could either be pure unadulterated boredom or just that I have a lot on my mind and plenty of time to write today.
Anyway, I just wanted to say that I thought Gael Clichy was fantastic in Barcelona and is showing signs of being his old self again.
I think the last couple of years have been difficult for Gael. His form has been up and down more times than Katie Price's (aka Jordan) knickers.
Its difficult to pinpoint why he has been inconsistent but it could be down to the formation Arsene Wenger likes to use these days.
Maybe Clichy has just taken a while to get used to it and is now getting to grips with the system.
I remember saying that Gael Clichy would become the best left-back in the world when Ashley Cole left and I still think that could well be the case.
You may think I am madder than a hatter for making such an outrageous statement but the talent is there and time is definitely on his side.
Its easy to forget that Gael is only 25 years old. He seems to have been about since the Stone Age doesn't he?
I think I read somewhere that defenders peak on average from 27 onwards so we have yet to see the best of Gael Clichy if that is the case.
It's easy to criticise when players are struggling (I hold my hands up, I've done it in the past too) so its only fair to give praise when its due and in my opinion Clichy deserves some.
If he can continue to show his recent form till the end of the season then I believe we can have no complaints about him.
Whats that saying? Form is temporary, class is permanent. Well if Gael can become more consistent I might not sound so mad!
Keep It Goonerish.........
