Agreed.

When was the last time we had an actual, obvious partnership?

I don't know whether that's down to injuries or form or just it's hard to find top quality players in those roles.

Arteta and felliani should of been so much better

Think Arteta having that season out co-incided with Fellaini taking time to settle and with Arteta not hitting the form he had preinjury and then leaving, their best periods didn't quite overlap. On paper though could have been great.

That was disappointing.

As TGC says I think circumstance had a big impact there.

I thought Gibson and Fellaini looked really promising - S'land away in the cup being a prime example - but then Felli was moved forward pretty soon afterwards.

I know I'm in a minority here but I still think that Gibson will make a big contribution if, and when, he gets back.

Not the same class.

I'm not saying they were but that was probably the last good centre midfield pairing we had that seemed to work well as a pair. We had a massive slump once Parkinson got injured and it lasted about 10 years!
You think Lou Bega knocked it out of the park with Mambo number 1?!No but he kept at it!

I always thought Arteta and Neville worked well.

Just shows that he was the main man in that partnership. Horne was shite. He's still shite at the commentating as well

I was probably one of Neville's biggest defenders but even I'd take exception to that. He was a terrible midfielder. I'm convinced that a lot of the abuse he got was because he was occasionally played in midfield. His best position was definitely FB.

Haha true!

Apart from his goal against Wimbledon and him saying 'I hate these brummie twats' or whatever it was when we played birmingham and he didnt realise he was still on air

The thought of a Fellaini and Arteta CM is not a good one, 2 of the biggest crabs in football

Remember when, while admittedly trying to sign Flo, Royle tried to buy him back?
