Does anyone have the stats for games won/lost when pienaar has been playing and when he has been injured? I think it would make interesting reading, surely its not a coincidence that since he as come back from injury we have played better football and are more of team, in turn giving us more confidence and picking up points that we surely would have lost ??

He has been our top assist maker the past couple of seasons, so those stats should be quite high.

It's no coincidence that, Hull aside, we have been much better since he came back. The energy of the whole team has lifted by his work ethic.

When full in form and fully fit, him Billy and Arteta would undoubtedly be fighting over two spots.

I say fully in form because although he has failed to impress much, a friend tells me Billy is world class when he is really on form.

Our season starts when we get rid of Gerrard and Carra. Gerrard has been back for 6 games and yet people are blaming his poor performances on his injury. He is crap! Get rid! As for Carra - its embarrasing that every time he gets the ball everyone shouts HOOF! Says it all really. Those 2 hamper any football the team attempts to play. We just lump it up front and hope Torres can knock it down for Gerrard to smash in. Any half decent side will be able to cope with that all day. Seems like our last decent performance was against Man U when significantly, Gerrard did not play.

Pienaar is vital, we struggled at the start of last season when he was injured.He just seems tokeep the ball realluy well and build attacks.

The day when him and Arteta are in the same side.........

He really is industrious, this should not be underestimated either.
But most of all he is creative.

Very important, he's our best wide player.

I'd rather see him on the left than the right though, we can't really afford to break up his partnership with Leighton Baines.

How's that? Billy and Peinnar, left and right and Arteta in the middle.

I'm also slightly confused, as you seem to start talking about Piennar, then go on about Billy.  :eh:

Pienaar is indeed a very important player, I hope we can keep hold of him.

It is absolutely essential we keep Pienaar. We would be by far a weaker side without him.

He's very important such an intelligent player and has the workrate that Moyes likes, needs to be offered a contract that puts him on parity with the other top earners at the club imo.  The problem is whether the board actually have the budget to be able to afford to pay him what he wants and deserves.

Well I half expected someone to come back and say Billy wasn't comparable to Arteta or Pienaar.

And as for position, I believe Arteta will return on the wing again, since we now have several good central midfielders in Cahill, Fellaini, Neville, Rodwell, Heitinga etc.

Arteta must stay away from the wing. Don't you remember how innefectual he was there? He is twice the player in the centre and allows us to dominate games.

Pienaar and Bilya for the wings, Arteta and one of Fellaini or Neville in the middle.
