Abou Diaby divides opinion like nobody else at Arsenal. There are some who think he is a special talent and there are those who believe that he is overrated, lazy and a liability. I think the negative perception of Diaby is a little unfair at times. He is often accused with criticism that he does not pass the ball quick enough or that he dribbles into traffic. Similar things have been said of Aaron Ramsey and Theo Walcott not so long ago. Ramsey was accused only last season of taking too many touches on the ball and Walcott was known to run into traffic. The difference with them and Abou Diaby is that of age but whether you are a young player or an experienced one, all players need games, momentum, and continuity. Without that players will make errors. Abou Diaby has spent most of his pitch time in the last few years trying to catch up and regain match sharpness while others around him already have it.
