How useful has Tomas Rosicky been this season?

Posted on January 06, 2014 by Crippy Cooke

For Arsenal’s FA Cup Third Round clash against Tottenham Hotspur, midfielder Tomas Rosicky was named in the ‘number 10’ attacking-midfield role – rolling back the years of his Dortmund days. He got his first goal of the season after tackling Tottenham defender Danny rose on the half way line – keeping his composure to run 50 yards with the ball, and to chip over onrushing ‘keeper Hugo Lloris.

The goal highlighted one of the biggest strengths that he’s showcased to the Arsenal side since joining in 2006 – industry. Despite being 33, the Czech international has always been a reliable midfielder when called upon. A willing worker on the pitch, while possessing great vision on the ball, it’s no secret Rosicky why has outlasted many players who have joined and left Arsenal in the same time the former Dortmund man has remained at the Emirates.

While only making a handful of appearances last season such has been his advancing age, Rosicky has become a more pivotal member of the squad this campaign. Making 17 appearances in all competitions already, he’s played his part in Arsenal’s rise to the top of the Premier League, but his influence has been often ignored. It’s clear manager Arsene Wenger will continue to utilise him if he can showcase a good run of form. Just how useful has Rosicky been this season?

    I’m amazed that with just 18 league matches remaining so many of the first team squad players are so short of appearances to qualify for a medal should we actually do the unthinkable and win the league. So far the likes of Fabianski vermaelen diaby chamberlain podolski bendtner gnabry Viviano park frimpong sanogo and zelalem have not played 10 games each and in most cases look unlikely too. Even With all our injuries only 17 players have made enough appearances so far. Realistically only vermaelen podolski and bendtner have a good chance of hitting that Mark whilst chamberlain and gnabry might make it,

    Rosicky plays his heart out when called upon, its high time he commanded 1st team football.

    Rosicky deserves very accolade he gets. He has been the stabilising factor in the team and plays his heart out every time he’s on the field. Amazing that the match commentators have not managed to get his name right after 8 years and still call him Rosinsky. What is it with them?
