Don’t tell Arsene Wenger, but we’ve just found the player that he has needed ever since Patrick Viera left his side.
How many times since the big Frenchman departed have you heard a pundit say that Arsenal is a great team but they lack a bit of bite in the centre of the park?
If only the Gunners had a player like Frimpong – mobile, good on the ball, strong, fearless.
Oh wait a minute, they do . . . and it’s him.
Why on earth Wenger allowed us to take him on loan is a mystery but, wow, am I glad he did.
Just his name was going to earn him folk hero status at Molineux, but the way he performed in our glorious draw against Tottenham has made most of us think he could be the saviour of the season.
And that’s what we need because, again, we’ve had too many poor results and look likely to be flirting with relegation again as the months go by.
At least in recent weeks, B-team versus Birmingham aside, there has been some glimmer of hope.
Back to back draws against Arsenal and champions-elect Tottenham (if you believe some experts) have shown that we can actually defend.
In those two games, Roger Johnson has re-found his form while Wayne Hennessey has been heroic between the sticks.
Wardy and Berra have been their usual hard-working selves and it’s starting to look like we might get a clean sheet one day. Oh and how great it was to see Kevin Foley, a man who never has a bad game, back in the right-back birth last week.
The tunnel was starting to look dark, but when you think of our recent defensive performances and then add to this a fit-again Michael Kightly, a free-scoring Steven Fletcher and a certain Emmanuel Frimpong, you start to see light at the end of it.
