    Gabriel Obertan is obviously going to be plauded for his blistering pace, but there is something else apart from his running and trickery that could be used, and that is his exceptional jumping ability, the commentator even mentioned this was something he got known for in his MUFC/Bordeaux days:

    The first thing I said when I saw him go in for a header was "Bloody hell, he can jump high for a tall lad."
    Cant believe I haven't mentioned this yet, nearly forgot.

    we were pumping quite a few balls towards him during the match to utilize his superhero levitation could be a good tactic...

    I think Gibbs was worried that Obertan was squeezing one out, not looking on in awe.

    well obertan will be used to playing with/against wes brown so we should put him in the side and see if he can get any change out of him. if not he can always just crash him with his gigantic hands.

  20. He probably won more in the air than anyone else that day. He's a pretty strong lad.
