Ok we had a lot of debate a couple of days ago when discussing Le Chump, today is the turn of the player/staff member/inanimate object we all liked best, Le Groves first Le champ of the season.
We thought long and hard about this one and took all your comments on board, so here is the short list.
In no particular order.
Any excuse to bust this photo out again!
Eduardo – Eduardo was so unlucky to have had the break when he did, he was just beginning to establish himself and fate stepped in, but we all saw enough to want more and next season we have no doubt he’ll be back and in contention, Eduardo we really appreciate what you’ve done this season.
Gael Clichy – This kid has it all, he stepped out of Cashley’s shadow and made the left back slot his own, now he is arguably the best left back in football (and with us for an extra two years), he gives us so much down the left side it’s difficult to ignore this him, great improvement this year and unfortunate against the brummies, we were robbed and so were you.
Sagna – What can you say about someone that no-one had heard of? That he could be so good, well done the Grimster, great spot! This guy gets nominated for his awesome displays and the way he acted when his brother sadly died, both he and Gael made the premiership team of the season, so well done the full backs.
How Van Persie sees Lewin…
Gary Lewin – Gary gets on the list for his speed in saving Eduardo’s leg, if it wasn’t for his quick thinking Eduardo may have lost his leg, it was that serious, so well done Gary. Unfortunately you spoiled all that, the day you saved John Terry and his serpent like tongue, so for that you’ll have to wait another year, but noble effort and we are forever in your debt.
Cesc – Nothing can be said about this young man that hasn’t already been said, except maybe, ‘I love you’ there I said it, he’s over 16 so there’s no law against it! He is Mr Arsenal and next year should be captain, his marauding runs and tireless workrate are unmatched and when he scores, he goes nuts and we all adore him for that, but what really puts this guy forward for me was his loyalty when the boss was on the rack, he came straight out and said he loved the club, the fans and the manager, shame others didn’t take note.
Adebayor – I worried about this one because I didn’t want to see Ethan’s posts, but a nomination for scoring 30 goals is warranted, he’s still got a lot to prove though so this year is maybe too soon to get Le Champ, but well done all the same, now go and prove you love the Arsenal.
And the winner is?… I have to split it 3 ways Cesc, Sagna and Gael Clichy; all have been warriors and all are Arsenal through and through and we really love you for that.
Congratulations guys, have Peroni on Le Grove.
Arsene, make sure you give Cesc the armband next season and then it’s job done.
