Samir Nasri: The Man to Carry on Arsenal’s Hope of Winning Silverware?

Arsenal did not play bad over the last few seasons, but still they could not win any silverware sine 2005 FA Cup triumph. Arsenal even produced good football on a regular basis, but at the end of the day Gunners fans were not as happy as they could have been with some silverware. Now, after experiencing the Gunners in the first match of premier league against West Bromwich, there are many who think Arsenal has got what it lacked over the last couple of years to bring silverware at Emirates stadium this season. The indication is clearly to Arsenal’s £12m summer signing Samir Nasri, considered as the future of French football.

The 21-year-old already showed a glimpse of his skill in his debut match for Arsenal against West Bromwich, scoring the winning goal. Well, football pundits do not give much of thought to that goal when consider him a player worthwhile to be able to give Arsenal “the golden touch of King Midas.” Actually, though he started as a left winger in the match, Nasri made his presence felt in almost everywhere in the field.

What is more important is that he appeared with his ability to make an effective link between Arsenal midfield and attack. This is the link, some think, Arsenal has been missing for a number of seasons since the departure of Pires and Ljungberg.

Well, I think, Samir Nasri has immense talent and potential in him and there is no doubt about it. He is just 21 and has got someone like Arsene Wenger as his mentor. So, I think, he has an excellent career ahead of him, if he just sticks to his basics. However, still, it would not be fair to consider him as someone who can single-handedly bring success for the Gunners, because only one match has gone in the season. Moreover, Arsenal has to play well as a team, if they are to win silverware. Not anyone can do this himself. However, there is no doubt Samir Nasri will have a big impact in his debut season in English premier league.
