Arsenal

The Greatest Of The Premiership Africans

Emmanuel Adebayor If the phrase, ‘form is temporary, class is forever’ is sounds true, but Ade must be considering suing whoever first coined it. He was a real menace, linked with many clubs at one stage, but seems now resigned to be a bit part player at Eastlands.

Joseph Yobo He’s what we call in the trade a veteran. Currently on loan to Fenerbache the 30 year old Nigerian has probably got his best Premiership years behind him now.

Yaya Toure is a La Liga, Champions League and Copel de Rey winner. Now finding his way at Manchester City this tall fast paced player has a huge talent and the ability to turn a game quickly.

Emmanuel Eboue is a massively talented player. The Ivorian has great technical ability, but he’s no goal machine! Only twelve in his career. Probably most at home as a right back his talent makes him versatile and can literally play more or less anywhere.

Steven Pienaar he’s played at some good clubs, Ajax, Borussia Dortmund and now Everton are enjoying the benefits of this fast footed player who can move from wing to wing and as well as bag the odd goal.Expect lots of transfer speculation in January.

Alexandre Song has been a much valued defensive midfielder in Arsene Wenger’s planning and this was underlined by him signing a long term contract until 2014. A quality player.

Kolo Toure this Ivorian central defender is another recent Manchester City addition. A Premiership veteran with seven years at Arsenal under his belt, this is precisely the sort of player to push City onwards and upwards.

John Obi Mikel is a 6’2″ midfielder with Chelsea since 2006. His arrival at Stamford Bridge is well documented. It was a fiasc0 that had him holding up an Manchester United shirt at one point and a football agent narrowly swerving jail time. The player himself picked up a drink driving conviction whilst suspended. More settled now, a real presence on the pitch.

Michael Essien is quite simply a machine. The sort of player you build a side around if you know what you’re doing. Apparently nicknamed ‘The Bison’ he is a powerhouse of energy and determination. If one player encapsulated the Chelsea fighting spirit under The Special One it was probably him.

Didier Drogba if you play Fantasy Football then you don’t need to be introduced to your captain. He’s such an incredibly talented player both technically and physically. Dogged by allegations of diving and simulation he appears to reigned in this side of his game and focused on doing what he does best and other footballers watch with their mouths open. An absolute legend.
