Nasri Is Ready

– Nasri’s World Cup omission worked out for the best. He wasn’t involved with the French debacle, which also means he’s a guarantee to be called up after Blanc axed the entire squad for one match. He took the omission personally, and he’s bulked up quite a bit.

– When we signed Samir Nasri, I was honestly shocked. It wasn’t cause I doubted his natural ability or thought he was a bad signing. It’s just that Arsenal are linked with young prospects so frequently that it was quite surprising that we actually signed one. Think about all the names that Arsenal are loosely linked with, mainly for the fact that we’re viewed as a club that gives young players opportunities.

– Nasri’s first season showed promise, but shunted out to the left wing, it was mostly a season of adjustment.

– Nasri’s next season started on a bad note when he broke his fibula during training. He sparkled sometimes (against Porto) and inconsistent at other times. When Cesc went down with the injury that finished his season, he was handed the keys to our midfield and didn’t do enough in my opinion.

– In this preseason, he’s been Arsenal’s best performer. He has a chip on his shoulder, and he better. I believe Nasri’s best position would be to play foil to Cesc Fabregas in the centre of midfield. This will be a big season, and he looks to be up for it.

– One can only hope that Theo has that same burning desire. To be fair, I’ve seen more from Theo, but it’s still not enough. But preseason has just started, it’s time to crank things up a bit.
