Gooner Talk's Player of the Month: Samir Nasri (August 08)

Midfield maestro Samir Nasri has claimed the first of Gooner Talk’s Player of the Month award’s after a magnificent debut month in an Arsenal shirt.

The 21-year-old, who made two appearances as a substitute for France during Euro 2008, signed a “long-term” contract with the Gunners two months ago for a reported fee of £13.5million.

Nasri, who has been dubbed the new Zinedine Zidane, joined Marseille as a nine-year-old and made his league debut during the 2004-2005 season.

He can play on either wing or through the centre and won the French First Division’s Young Player of the Year award at the end of the 2006/2007 campaign, as well as being voted Marseille’s Player of the Year by supporters.

How Samir won the award

Samir begun his Premier League campaign in the most awesome of fashions with an early debut goal against West Brom.

A fantastic well-worked goal from the Frenchman, and there was much more to come from Samir in the following three fixtures for the Gunners.

An abysmall away defeat to Fulham mean’t that Arsenal dropped early points in the League. Despite this, Nasri continued to impress and proved to one of the most consistent performers in the side.

Nasri’s big moment came in the return leg of Arsenal’s Champions League qualifier against FC Twente. Samir scored the first goal after neat footwork which took him into the box before striking a sweet shot under the rookie ‘keeper in what managed to finish a 4-0 win for Arsenal.

The 21-year-old’s latest game was a 3-0 mauling of Newcastle. Samir was fantastic throughout and after being taken out by Joey Barton late on, he showed his cheekiness with a little kick out at the disgraced ex-convict.

Well done to Samir for the award, and hopefully he can continue his superb work for the Arsenal.

Nice to know he isn't afraid of anyone. I mean in all seriousness Barton could have attacked him right there and then. He is a thug after all. That looks like £12m well spent, doesn't it Arsene. Whats say you go out and do it again but this time on a defender or DM. Go on, you know you want to.

No argument here. Nasri was the best player this month. Would anyone else put Eboue as runner up for player of the month? I would

Yes.

He's already shown what he's capable of, and I think this is only a glimpse of his true potential.

And Joey Barton is a fucking thug and moron, trying to bully our player. Good thing Nasri is a lot smarter and cheekier that the thug.

Samir Nasri a joy to watch especially against newcastle the way he dribbled out of defence toying with three newastle players… and fuck kevin keegan for protecting that racist cunt Barton. I hope he gets a life long ban from football and keegan along with him… I love to overreact 😀
