    Arsenal match retrospective

    Depends how you mean; I think he's better defensively this season, last year was a huge learning curve for him in that respect, but as a result he's not getting forward as much. But he's a defender first and foremost, so I'd rather it this way round.

    I guess his pace has dropped off a bit (I'd not realised before you mentioned it!), but then last season was his first as a first-teamer and he's played in virtually all our cup & league matches this year, as well as a bit of international time, he's probably starting to get tired.
