Arsenal Message Board
Sol is now only the 3rd ever player to have played in all 18 seasons of the Premier League, joining Giggs and James. This is some achievement if you ask me!
Also I was wondering that IF Arsenal do win the League would he get a winners medal! Up to now he has played 4 league games this season and there are 7 left.
In FA rules a player has to play at least 10 matches to quailify for a medal. It does state that in some exceptional cases they might give a medal for a player who plays less than 10. I think that this could be one of those exceptional cases!
Lets face it he's a bit slow but he's definitely helping some of the youngsters out there with his experience.
If he was ready for the Man U and Chelsea games I think that Arsenal might be clear at the top now!!
Strange how Sol scored in 2 Champions League matches on the trot but with a 4 year gap (2006-2010)! There's another record for you!
He seemed an odd signing at the time but it has definitely worked. I think the defence would be a big shambles right now without him (red cards,penalties,injuries,etc). He's been great cover!
A club gets 21 medals to dish out. The norm is 9/10 games but its up to the club, I believe.
"If he was ready for the Man U and Chelsea games I think that Arsenal might be clear at the top now" - yeh, right.
Unbelievable if you ask me!
James is a keeper so you can expect his years in the Premier League.Giggs is Giggs! But Sol is a defender for f++ks sake!Wow!
I tell you,I'll be starting a 'Give Sol a medal campaign' if he does play less than 10 games and they question whether he should get one or not!
