The two games he missed in the invincible season we lost.
Chelsea in champions league a competition we would have won that season because that arsenal team would have beaten Porto in the final
And the FA cup semi final vs Manchester Utd a competition we would have won too
Gilberto misses two games we miss out on unbeaten treble
Who’s been better for us than him?
He protected our younger players
Flamini was at left back vs juventus in 2006 champions league semi final getting a hard time from whoever it was
Gilberto literally swapped positions with him
Faced up the juventus player who apparently said
“Come on mate”
Gilberto replies
“I’m not your mate I have friends it’s you and me now
We won and went to the final

Let's hope we all change our stance on this in 2 years time and its a unanimous choice with Martinelli.

As I remember Gilberto suffered a back issue which became problematic for him.

He played for two months with a broken back, nobody noticed. When he came back he was excellent again



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

He really struggled in that time as I remember it. It's a shame they didn't pick it up early.

Hang on a minute..
We got battered by inter Milan in our first group game that season
Inter were 3-0 up at half time
Henry missed a penalty
Gilberto played in that game
I’ll get some gravy for the hat I’m about to eat

RvP. Lot of injuries but eventually became the best striker in the league.

There’s Pires and Lauren too who stand out
Pires, Lauren and Gilberto
Cesc RVP Sanchez but they never won anything
I just read that Manchester Utd are looking to swap pogba for Ramsey who was also great for us

Emery lasting legacy is flogging Ramsey out
Terrible

Cesc won FA cup in 2005, also played in team that got to CL final, but dont remember if he played in final, but he hasnt got the really heavy silverware.

I suppose it depends on what you mean by best player we signed. Ready made or developed to become our best player.

The likes of Sol and Gilberto were ready made for an already supremely talented team, where as the likes of Sanchez and the player Cesc eventually became carried their respective teams for a number of years.

I some times write a post

then delete it or go over it and then post it

Lewis

Gilberto isn't even my favorite Arsenal player since 2000

Probably the thing I'm most proud of I own is Sol Campbell's autograph

I could go into the details but I do not have the time or the energy

Sol Campbell btw is probably the fastest calculations per second player we brought in since 2000

But Best Player

Is Gilberto.

I'll put it to you this way.

What's the best loaf of bread.

It's not the tastiest, It's not the one which makes the nicest toast. It's not the one which holds wet ingeredients the best in a sandwich it's not the one with seeds and multi grains.

It's any loaf made with only 100% whole grain flour from a variety of wheat grown only for bread making... and not some variety of wheat grown for cake flour mixed in with some other variety grown for brewing beer.

You can buy some french made (the dough is shipped to the UK) whole wheat breads (you would not know they were if no one told you)

You can get some strong whole wheat bread flour and with time of course enjoy the amazing smell it makes filling up your whole house and the satisfaction of making your own work of art the freshness of it which can not be duplicated by buying from some one else and the nutty complex whole wheat flavour without any actual nuts, the hot crust or cold crust ... it becomes not just a hunk of bread it becomes quite the experience... way .... way .... way more than the sum of it's parts.

And that's Gilberto Silva.

Carrots.

What's the best carrots?

Carrot Cake? Carrot Juice? Carrot Sticks? Steamed? Microwaved? Etc?

If you're human the best carrot you can ever have is one you pick out of the ground yourself, wash clean with running water and bite into ... The Freshness Of It Man ... obviously this applies to carrots where some one hasn't gone wild with the fertilizer or pesticide use.

People have sweet, sour, bitter taste buds and they go on and on about those. But you've also got this appreciation of freshness.

Fresh pizza out the oven vs Reheated pizza you know what's best don't you. But how do you describe it. Impossible isn't it. But you know there is a definite intangible effect there like our lad with the invisible wall.

Lewis is absolutely right. After Viera, Henry, Bergkamp etc... the guys before 2001 Gilberto was our best player on the field. In the dressing room. On the training field. In his free time. Helping the new recruits bringing them into his family home.

It's an absolute no brainer Brazil made him Captain.

And long after he's retired absolutely every one has a good word to say about the guy.

When he wasn't on the field being invincible in 2004 he was giving his time and his money to homeless people and political refugees here in England and in his home country.

In 2015 he gave a voice to many who couldn't be heard in his native Brazil.

Today. He still supports people in England with absolutely nothing, through the Street League.

Every One around him on the field, off the field, on the street, In Life, he made and he makes Better.

Never even mind about football.

Gilberto is just The Best.
