Hatem Ben Arfa

Post by The Pröfessör on Tue Mar 02, 2010 10:46 pm

My 1st proper player thread Smile

What's your opinion on him?

I think he's the dog's bollocks. He's ridiculosuly talented albeit a bit immature.

He's a great dribbler, his close control at full pace is almost Messi like, two footed and can pick up good positions in the final 3rd. What seperates him from typical ball hoggers is his passing range and vision are very good.

He's very similar to Arshavin. I'd say a better dribbler but not as mature and consistent. Maybe that will come with age and experience.

He's been selected for the French national team for the 1st time in 2 years. That's quite remarkable for a player who looked to be frozen out by his manager just few months ago. It looks like he's finally woken up coz he's been awesome for Marseille since the turn of the year. Personally i think he'll flourish better in a league that doesn't place too much emphasy on defence (like the French league) especially under a manager like Wenger or Ferguson. This is because just like Arshavin, he's not always interested in tracking back. But that wouldn't be such a big problem under Wenger coz he'll give him enough freedom to express his talent and not burden him with too much defensive work. He's also good dealing with talented yougsters who are widely perceived to have got difficult characters. I hope Wenger buys him and loan him back to Marseille for a year. A perfect Arshavin replacement.

He's someone to keep an eye on.

Wenger has an unhealthy fetish with young French African boys.

Maybe it's the way they cry for their mummies as he fingers them
that gets him off.

Who knows.

Yes, but not that fluently.

Who is Ninis?

EDIT: I see he's a Greek footballer. What is he like and how good is he?

Ben Arfa has done pretty well recently. When he tries not to be too cuntish and when he uses his brain he can be a good player. This month he scored lots of goals, which is good for him.

Looking forward to his cameo (I think). He has cut out his selfishness a lot. Or that's what I have been told these days..

He was very inconsistent last season. The more time passed the more annoying he got on the field, and the worse his appearances for the team became. He was frustrating to watch, and I don't even like Marseille at all.

Anyway, like has been said before, he's going an excellent job this season. Whenever I have seen him, I have been impressed with his performance. Hope he stays long enough in France to mature a bit, and to get better (1-2 more seasons). Not sure what is happening inside the Marseille camp at the moment, but I don't think he is ready for England yet.

I'll have my chance to see him on the 11th. Then I will add my contribution about how fast he can limp.

I think he is still too irregular to play for a big club. He still has to play well for a few months. He's still too much roller coaster.
He's got some good skills and can score nice goals, but needs consistancy.

HATEM!!!!!

Surely he's going to the Euros?

He's of the few players in the world capable of special things in tight matches, you can't leave a player like that at home.

I share Prof's admiration of Ben Arfa and I haven't heard of any poor behaviour in his time playing for Newcastle so I think he would be a much better bet than either Gourcuff or Nasri for the national team.

Barfa ok

As pointed out in the EPL thread, his goal against Blackburn in the cup was better.
