Sagna's Return Coincides With Arsenal's Run Of Form

I don't care that Bacary Sagna looks like Serena Williams' ugly brother. 

And I don't care that, except for Cesc Fabregas' mullet, his hair-style is the funniest I've seen a player in an Arsenal shirt ever have.

Because Bacary is a hero for Arsenal. A proper hero. Like Hercules. 

Is it any coincidence, that since his return from a broken leg, Arsenal have shown the kind of fight only ever seen on the battlefields of Scotland by William Wallace and co?

The man is a warrior. His never-say-die attitude, and fighting spirit, is slowly becoming matched by the rest of the squad. 

They look at the example Sagna sets week-in week-out, and think, 'Hang-on, we better match this desire or he will destroy us. Or Vermaelen will Verminate us at least'.

In my, completely unbiased, opinion, Sagna is the best right-back in English football and the second best in Europe. After Daniel Alves. No mean feat.

Arsenal are on a fantastic run at the moment, which makes a change for this time of year, and Sagna is a key reason for that.

You need characters like Bacary around the club. Not only is he a brilliant right-back but he is influential too.

Players look up to him, except Per Mertesacker, and realise that this is a man who gives his all. Every game. That's the kind of attribute we have lacked in the past. 

Even Theo Walcott looks a different player now Sagna is back in the team. 

His form has improved drastically and it seems Theo can relax, playing his game more naturally, when he knows that the Frenchman is behind him. 

Arsenal have shown some amazing character in recent weeks. We have even set records in the come-backs we have produced.

Now, for a change, it would actually be nice if Arsenal went a goal up tonight so I don't pull ALL my hair out but I'd take another win, regardless of how it is done.

Hair aside, this bunch of bananas, sorry I meant Arsenal players, have the kind of battling quality's I haven't seen since the Invincibles. 

They don't when they are beaten. Except when we play Manchester United away.

The players are beginning to match Sagna, his extraordinary fighting spirit, and that should take us into the Champions League again, and stand us in good stead for next season.

So true - him, TV and RVP are the type of experienced battlers you need in your team. Players others look up to and think "shit i NEED to show some guts". Fair to say Chesney and Kos are also getting into that bracket

Koscielny is another warrior I am seeing in that squad. Dedicated,focus, picking up every loose ball and matching every opponent strength for strength irrespective of the size. Big up guys, we're the gunners london pride.

Completely agree I love Backy, everything you need in a right back! can only think of a handful of bad games he has had his whole career with us, he is Mr consistent

Yup, when Sagna is in the team theres alot more stability. Left wingers dont really fancy going one on one with him, and hes really positive going forward. The hair though, it makes Songs strange Spidermeeting haircut seem stylish.

So true, For the first time in six years the boys are showing real steel and passion. There is an attitude of 'Don't mix it with us, were THE ARSENAL ' Takes you back to the Keown, Winterburn era. Just hope they keep it up and really make teams fear our physical strength. Feeling quietly confident about the future and we still have Jack to come back

Well you could see from having the countless amount of different players we played at right back we just didn't get that added width we do when bacca is there as he is such an astute defender it gives walcott that freedom he needs perhaps when we had the make shift right backs in there walcott was very cautious knowing we was not as strong
