McLintock: Silvestre Is A Very Good Signing

New Arsenal signing Mikael Silvestre has been praised by Gunners’ legend Frank McLintock who believes it’s a good bit of business done by Arsene Wenger.

The 31-year-old completed his £750,000 move last night and signed a 2-year deal and become another member of Arsenal’s almost all-French backline.

And McLintock, who skippered the club to the Double in 1971, insisted:

“Silvestre will be a very, very good signing for us.

“I never even thought about him but he is just the type of player we need. He has bags of experience and won’t cost a lot as he is 31.

“Being French, he’ll have no trouble settling in.”

Mikael is set to train with his new team-mates for the first time this morning and could make his debut against Fulham if Kolo Toure isn’t fit.

Enjoy your new signing from the Man Utd trash heap. He only got 9 starts in 2 years for a reason you know.

Yes we know what is called depth, but to have depth, your back-up player needs to be fit, doesn't he? His injury record at United speaks for itself. Cheap, but very ordinary signing, won't add much to the squad. So i guess no Inler for us then, this is probably our last signing…sad :((

These fans who doubts this signing are just reacting to the fact that he's a Man U reject. Silvestre will be a good signing becauce he can come in for anyone of our first choise back 4. We know he can play LB and CB, his abilty to play CB will give us the option to play Kolo at RB if Sagna is unavailable.

These Arsenal fans that doubt this signing are not thinking clearly because they see him as a Utd reject. I believe this to be a good acquisition as it will provide cover right across or backline, not just in the obvious CB and
LB but it will also allow Kolo to cover for Sagna.

How on earth would Ferguson sanction this deal? Has Wenger got a hold of his pornographic photos?

Anyway, it's a great signing, but let's hope it's not the last signing for the summer.

Spot on, an excellent signing. Silvestre provides invaluable cover, experience and is just quality. This is Wenger at his prudent and opportunistic best. That said, Wenger should not stop here and sign a high quality dm.

Im in a state of shock, its way outside of left field!!!!!!!!! I think we still need a midfielder though!!! One more signing, and on silvestre, i very rarely watch man u, my previous thoughts was that he was ok…… But im all for it if he can plug defensive gaps…….. If he doesnt I think people may try to assasinate wenger, HAVE MAN U SENT HIM TO INFILTRATE????????????

Can someone please make sure that Gooner Me never ever again posts on this board? Not only is he an illiterate and disrespectful moron, he is clearly insane.

I am completely shocked that this would actually happen. I am actually happy about the signing but also fear that this could be the last this season by Wenger. I hope I am not true. We are desperately short in the midfield. What do you think Gooner chris will we sign another player CDM.

All you naysayers are a bunch of twats!!! The guy has bags of experience and can cover CB and LB. He knows the Premiership like the back of his hand and is friends with most of our defence already!!! He will slot in seamlessly. Wenger bought him as experienced cover – nothing more. And if thats what your looking for you can't go wrong with him. and for just £750k. Bargain!!! It doen't matter that he's injury prone cos he's only going to get a handful of games. He can slot in if Gallas or Toure or Clichy get a… Read more »

Mikael silvestre is a brilliant signing he can play CB and LB if clichy gets injured we are buggered and this guy can be solid for us. Not so long ago i remba silvestre partnering rio at the back but then he got injuries and they bought vidic. Silvestre is lighting quick, good distribution and can pass a ball.
