Bacary Sagna: Pleased with how he has improved since moving to Arsenal

Several Emirates Stadium stars have left over recent years and Theo Walcott is the most recent player facing an uncertain future as his contract stand-off continues.

But 2007 signing from Auxerre, Sagna, who returned from a second broken leg at the end of October, does not appear to be planning to go anywhere.

"It has been magic. Arsenal is like my family. My personal family is in France but I feel at home here. I feel happy to come training. I feel relaxed," he said in the Daily Star.

"There are not many big clubs where you feel that confident. I think I have progressed a lot. That was my target. To come to such a big club and improve.

"I was a bit nervous, because my English was very basic. I was leaving my family and friends and it was a new life.

"I used to be stressed before games but now I am totally relaxed, because of my team-mates and the manager."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
