Two feet, he’s only got two feet


When Santi Cazorla turned and launched his shot into the top corner of the West Ham net late on Saturday evening, you’d be forgiven for thinking he was one of those players who left feet are often refered to as ‘cultured’.

This usually means that the right leg is simply for standing on, not kicking a ball, but given this was the Spaniard’s so-called weak foot it was an impressive finish.

Arsene Wenger has likened Cazorla to one of his former charges, Glenn Hoddle, who he managed at Monaco. While Arseblog News is reluctant play up any comparisons with the Sp*rs-associated, ridiculously-haired numbskull, the manager’s words ring true when discussing the quality of the summer signing.

“He is right-footed but, when you watch him play, you don’t know that. We had Glenn Hoddle and he was like that – left, right, you could not say which was strongest and Cazorla, on that front, is similar.

“I don’t remember anyone else I have worked with who was as much as that two-footed. Cazorla makes everybody a better player.”

Cazorla’s goal sealed the game for Arsenal and Wenger says belief is growing within the squad after another solid away performance.

“We started with a lot of questions raised about the team. We have now played seven games and the belief in the squad is that we have a chance. Of course we now need to do it week after week. The spirit and quality are there. It is about how consistent we are now.”

With nearly two weeks off now until the next Premier League game, the manager will be hoping his charges come back from their various international duties, ready to pick up where they left off.

  6. There must be a way for both Santi and Arteta to play actively for Spain enroute winning the 2014 world cup for Spain. Wenger, you genius! I sure didn’t see the design. Undercover agent Song, in the last training before the last dead rubber game of season 2013/2014, gives both Busquet and Xavi a fracture. Don Arsene, Well done!

      They play for The Arsenal, we don’t want Santi and Mikel in the same team as those cheating cuntsalonas and Mourinho cocksuckers.

  7. His size, ball control, vision, etc…. dare I say it the only person playing right now that he reminds me of is Messi. His balance is damn near perfect. I only wish he had just a tad more attacking mindset in terms of going for goal. I do think we’ll see that eventually though. He’s a very unselfish player and he is the best signing Wenger has made since Henry!

  12. A Cardiologist died and was given an elaborate funeral. A huge heart covered in flowers stood behind the casket during the service.Following the eulogy, the heart opened, and the casket rolled inside. The heart then closed, sealing the doctor in the beautiful heart forever.

    At that point, one of the mourners burst into laughter. When all eyes stared at him, he said, “I’m sorry, I was just thinking of my own funeral…….. I’m a Gynaecologist.”

    the Proctologist (one who deals with disorders of the anus,colon and rectum) fainted!
