Dear Laurent Blanc.
If you are you still deciding on what 23 players to pick for Euro 2012 we suggest you take a visit to St James’ Park and cast your eye over former Marseille and Lyon midfielder Hatem Ben Arfa.
Gone are the temper tantrums and the bad attitude and what you’ll find in its place is a very talented midfielder who has scored and created some excellent goals for Newcastle United recently. He really needs to be given another chance in a Les Bleus jersey before the this summer’s tournament.
The likes of Florent Malouda and Samir Nasri have failed to perform this season and Ben Arfa is firing on all cylinders. Take a chance Monsieur Blanc, drop the Hatembomb and give in to the call of the Newcastle fans.
French Football Weekly.
This weekend we witnessed one of the best goals in this season’s English Premier League. Ben Arfa took the ball from his own half, raced into the Bolton penalty area and calmly placed the ball past Adam Bogdan. If you don’t believe us, take a look for yourself.
Whether or not Ben Arfa makes it into the France squad, Toon Army have themselves a new hero on Tyneside and there is all the chance they could be playing Champions League football next season. With the play of Yohan Cabaye and Ben Arfa supplying the goals for Demba Ba and Papiss Demba Cissé anything is possible for this excellent side.
To commemorate the great play of Ben Arfa in the last few weeks the team at French Football Weekly have created a t-shirt which is now available in the FFW shop.
We hope all the Newcastle fans like the design. If you want a closer look the t-shirt is available HERE!
