Who in their right mind rejects Real Madrid to sign for spurs and then says "its right for my career".
Tell that to Cassano, Robinho, Baptista and Gravesen. I'm surprised you picked them as an example. You make my point for me quite well, though.
Its blindingly obvious he chose the wrong club, at Arsenal he would be winning things, playing with world class players.
You haven't won any trophies since Zokora joined us...
We're a month into the season and your talking about trophies. You're not going to win the league, and we're also in 3 cup competitions
. You forgot how we gave you a run for your money with your world class players last year.
At spurs he is playing with wannabe stars like Huddlestone and Davenport - it is no way near a natural progression in his career.
Yes, pick any two squad players. At Arsenal he could be playing with wannabes Hoyte and Gilbert.
He may be your best player at the moment but look at your position in the table and see what thats telling you, you have a few big names and a lot of no hopers, i've heard a lot of spurs fans calling for Jol's head.
With so many injuries/ new signings our poor start was always a possibility. Try and look beyond form. Nobody is saying Spurs are better than Arsenal, so you implying Zokora is stupid is just silly and rude.
Zokora could learn his trade from Fabregas let alone Davids. Also, if in being patronising to Zokora, invite him on to TSR and i will tell him to sign for us in January and win some trophies!
Fabregas is a different type of player again. Didier Zokora is a holding midfielder, but is different to your Makelele's because he makes occasional bursts from deep-lying posititions. First you compare him to Rosicky, now Cesc...
You forget that Edgar Davids was once a very similar player to what Zokora is now and has won everything going in football. I'm not sure how much Cesc can teach him using his different style of game and his lack of honours/ experience.
This is what bugs me. Arsenal fans have a few good performances, forget their poor start (even worse than ours) and then all of a sudden they're world beaters. After what happened in the league last season, you'd have thought that would have an effect on their views.
Afcwill, You have this ingrained nepotism for some reason. Rosicky and Cesc are the best players in the world, Toure is first the best defender in Europe, then Gallas is the best defender in the world
I doubt you've even watched Rosicky regularly prior to this season. His main criticism in Germany was his defensive ability and how he gave away too many freekicks because of his poor tackling technique. There are more complete players than Rosicky. How can anyone expect to take your views seriously when you have a memory of 3 weeks, and a belief that Arsenal players are the best in the world and there are no other clubs/players worth a mention. Zokora is his own man, he made a choice, so let's see if he made a mistake at the end of at least 1 season. Show some impartiality, this forum is becoming all too partisan.
