Personally I’ve always rated Gunners and even took some stick on the forum from some, SLADE and TROLLOPE IN MY OPINION WERE CLUELESS/ WE NEED TO GET HIM SIGNED UP ON A NEW CONTRACT ASAP :thumbright:
THE CITY PLAYER NOT RATED BY PREVIOUS MANAGERS/SOME FANS & CITY EVEN TRIED TO GET RID
NOW THE BACKBONE OF NEIL WARNOCKS CARDIFF CITY TEAM
By Annis Abraham
ARON GUNNARSSON IS A LEADER/VIKING AND ONE OF THE BEST PLAYERS IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP
Neil Warnock: “Gunners is a leader and a Viking for Iceland and Cardiff City and for me one of the best players in the Championship”
“He’s a manager’s dream really, it’s a similar situation to what I had last year at Rotherham with Greg Halford, who was bombed out when I went there and he ended up a manager’s dream. Gunnars is the same, he wasn’t playing and you wonder why because he’s as good as anything in the league.”
Warnock sees these committed, all-action displays as vindication for his decision to install him as the midfield screen immediately after arriving in South Wales.
Warnock had said on Friday that he and Gunnarsson are in agreement that it’s his best position.
Warnock said: “I think he appreciates that I feel his best position is where he plays now, I’ve always thought that from afar. I think he’s revelling in that because he knows what he’s doing and I don’t think there’s anyone as good in the Championship at that. I think he can chip in with the odd goal or two, too. I’ve asked him and the other to work on that and help us out with that.”
That odd goal may well be the final frontier for Gunnarsson, who headed just wide in the opening stages against Huddersfield.
If he manages to get on the score sheet with any kind of regularity, then there will be no debate. No defensive midfielder in this league would come close.
