it's amazing how much his form dipped. I realize the older you get the drop should be expected, but a drop like off a cliff?

the same persistent calf injuries rendered his legs useless

if you even look at clips from 13/14 he stilled looked relatively nimble compared to nowadays

Shock Arsenal clip: Watch huge changes planned at Emirates, star players give their views

ARSENAL are set to install the world's first RETRACTABLE SUNROOF at the Emirates Stadium.

https://players.brightcove.net/25400761 ... 4817797001

As part of the ongoing 'Arsenalisation' project, the Gunners are set to open the innovative fan-controlled roof exactly a year today.

The roof will be made of red canvas in line with club colours and will take a blistering 11 seconds to open.

And Arsenal stars Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny are fully behind the plan.

"Air consistency is key to success," Oxlade-Chamberlain said. "Being able to control every variable including the weather is obviously a big factor and important for us.

"Not only will the sun roof make the Emirates a brighter stadium but hopefully we can make it seem like summer all year round."

Gunners vice-captain Per Mertesacker said: "With the new sunroof we can control the hydration levels of the players and how much sun we are exposed to.

"Our sports scientists say it will improve our stamina around eight per cent.

"This is a great opportunity for the Emirates Stadium to reinforce its status as the best stadium in the world."

And Laurent Koscielny added: "As a defender, you can struggle under the high ball on sunny days but with the new roof we should save between four and six goals a season."

Each game an Arsenal fan will be randomly selected and given the power to decide whether they want the roof to be closed or left open.

The move has come about after months of talks between Arsenal and sponsor Citroen.

"Arsenal and Citroen have been talking for some time now on building the world's first retractable sun roof in a football stadium," Citroen spokesperson William daRoufe said.

"Inspired by the C1 Airscape roof and today we can announce that to the world.

"As well as protecting fans and players, we can also project messages, images and even instant replays onto the sun roof offering extraordinary fan experience."

Building work is set to commence at the end of this season and will operate in an identical fashion to the C1 Airscape roof.

"At Citroen, we are committed to designing technology with people in mind," Citroen's chief engineer Rufus Rouge added.

"As the official automotive partner for Arsenal Football Club, we are therefore excited by the new roof inspired by our design technology, that will not only enhance the fan experience, but ensure a more pleasurable game for players, come rain or shine."
