We also know that he has a bad reputation in England, but his potential transfer to Arsenal is making waves in Holland as well. The following article is a translation of a Dutch piece which went out on a well respected football site Voetball International, and is an interesting insight into what the Dutch think of him.

It's seen in every game that Arsenal lacks that aggressive factor which scares teams and puts them in their place. I don't mean tackles flying in all over the place and aggressive behaviour.

A call to moderate Arsenal Fans – by GW

Some thoughts on what has happened and why it has happened at Arsenal......

I first really began to support Arsenal in 1988-89. What a season. What a team. The passion and determination showed in that final game was amazing.

I watched as George Graham turned us into an effective cup side which lacked a touch of consistency and then watched as we found a man who initially appeared to be the Messiah.
