The Emirates XI (2006-2016)



Clichy over Monreal?!

Any reason? Think your the first to not pick Nacho :slight_smile:


I picked him too because he broke into the team as a teenager and took over from the best left back we’ve had in Wengers time here and it was pretty seemless. Over 200 appearances in the Emirates era and the only real reason not to pick him is that he left for city. He was a better player for us, for longer, than Monreal has been.


Clichy seems to be in quite a few lists as I look through. But yeah, I wouldn’t say there was a lot in it but Clichy was really dependable and consistent for us. He was one of the few to really grab his chance in the “project” years just after we moved.
