The secret behind Nasri’s loss of form

WTTGT Writer: Derek Warwick

Samir Nasri, one of the Premier League’s most electric, creative midfielders. He has built a reputation of epic proportions, attracting some of Europe’s elite clubs in the meantime. However, it has to be said that his reputation was built in conjunction with one special thing, one power distribution tool that no Frenchman is complete without in the modern game… the snood!

Some of football’s most talented players have worn snoods, a scarf like garment that is worn around the neck, including Carlos Tevez, as well as the Gunners’ own Nasri and Chamakh.

The ban on the snoods came into effect in March with immediate effect. It has been argued that Nasri’s form, post ban, alarmingly decreased and he didn’t seem the same player. The story of ‘Samson the great’ comes to mind – his strength was in his hair which he lost after an enforced snip – and so too in Nasri’s case, it was his snood. A far cry from sanity, but nevertheless, this statement is actually backed up by stats. You can’t argue with stats!

Before the ban came in, Nasri racked up 20 goals since he joining from Marseille in 2008; a fairly decent goal scoring rate. However, after the ban of his furry friend, he managed a measly three goals.

So, was Nasri’s creative flair was contained deep within his snood? Was it a case of he felt more ‘invincible’ and ‘creatively masterful’ with his snood on?

One thing that is for sure is that if Arsenal do sell him, it will be without his snood and therefore a good deal for the Gunners!

    No, it was because Wenger 'the Genius' started playing him out of his favoured central position from winter onwards.

    I think you guys are missing the tone of the article, which suggests that it is entirely meant as a joke. Think about it!

    I second what Dan the Man states. It is nothing more.

    I think it was because Cesc came back and Nasri had to sit out.
    I think if Cesc leaves(i hope so) we will see the Nasri we saw in the 1st half of the season.

    FinPro – i think you need to stop with the 'grass' little boy, its a satirical piece, you might want to brush up on your article genre's before you go ahead and make a brain dead comment like that; same goes for the rest of you 'people' who are taking this seriously…

    it's an article that was written loosely and done with a joke-esq style, if you took it seriously, you need to head back to school, or at least think before you muster up the courage and pull out your dictionary (in which it clearly didn't help!), and try and be a big boy and commenting the most profoundly stupid sentences known to man.

    Thanks for your input though lad's, just backs up my hypothesis of the level of intelligence you gunners fans have…
