Just wondering what you think about his big success in France, he is one of the best defenders in the league today and he always makes the team of the week..

i know Arsenal has prolems on the defence and its too bad you didnt give him a chance, it would have been great for him to be in a big club like Arsenal.

Sure but when you have players like cygan you start wondering right?

It doesn't always work that way...
Cygan was the player(defender) of the year in France, we bought him as a huge prospect for our team. But you know the rest.
Good luck to Tavlaridis anyway.....

Cygan is only a reserve though, probably Tavlaridis wanted 1st team football, he went on loan to Portsmouth and didn't pull any trees up there so perhaps the less physical football of France suits him better as it did Cygan.

Tavlaridis was good in my CM game few years ago when I was still in college. :D

Well, we can only wish him good luck and get even better. We are very happy to see him succeed finally. :)

While I gotta admit that I didn’t cry my eyes out when he was sold he always impressed me whenever I saw him play for the reserves. He had leadership qualities, Was good on the ball and wasn’t afraid to put tackles in (although they could be a bit mistimed sometimes - ). I didn’t know he’s doing well in France at the moment but it’s nice to hear :). A bit strange that he didn’t get a proper run in first team for us though. Surely he couldn’t have done worse than Stepanovs, Vivas, Oleg, Garde, Cygan etc. However I’m sure AW had his reasons.

I hope you mean "best player playing in france"?
It's an insane world if a player like Cygan could get an award like that ahead of Henry,Zidane,Lizarazu...and so on...and so on...on and on... ;)

I never understood why Arsenal signed him in the first place. He had a big body but he was VERY average in the Greek league and was also average for the Greek U-21.

Still, I've seen him play twice for Lille and looks a real rock. Weird.

Simply not good enough for this level. I hardly remember him ever playing, like that other Czecho-greek we had Papadopulous.

the thing is Wenger has the magic eye for potential and you probably don't :D

all the young players he signs have something, it's just whether they can find it or not.

Pennant is a fukin idiot, all the talent in the world can't hide that fact.

let's hope he has learnt his lessons, could be a big player if he has.

You are probably right, he knows talent, thats why he signed Tavlaridis... i mean he did end up being successfull player in France and he will probably move to a bigger club soon although Lille is a French topc Club...
I believe the deal with Tavlaridis was that he could go Free to Lille but they agreed to get 50% of the next sale...
