Arsenal’s newly transferred midfielder Yossy Benayoun seems to think that Arsenal’s attitude and motivation made the names of Samir Nasri and Cesk Fabregas forgotten and that now the fans don’t regret thei departure anymore.
“Fabregas and Nasri are both good players, and maybe the fans expected other names, or bigger names,” he said. “But all the players bought on the last day have proved themselves and we are playing much better and winning games.”
“The supporters now understand that we have a good team with a lot of quality, and I think they have forgotten about the other players already.”
“We are only two points from Chelsea now, Tottenham and Manchester United are not that far ahead.”
“We beat Chelsea away. If you do that, you can beat any team. We showed the quality and we just need to keep working in every game and prove ourselves.”
There is some truth in Benayoun’s words. The fans have passed on and they really are happy now, but they won’t forget Fabregas or Nasri for quite a while, and their reaction against Manchester City in the Carling Cup was a clear proof of how frustrated they are because the Frenchman went to City.
