I don't know how many Arsenal fans agree with me, but I feel a little bit sorry for Johan Djourou. After joining the Gunners as a promising 15-year old in 2002, his career has never really managed to take off as he would have liked. He was not happy being the fourth choice centre back, so Arsene Wenger finally relented last season and let him go on loan to Hannover in the Bundesliga.
