Good luck Gilberto and thanks.
I hope you are quicker getting to Athens than you were around WHL last January, otherwise the season might already have kicked off
Seriously, all the best.

Cheers for the good times Bert!
Now it's time for Diaby to become our new Vieira and explode alongside Cesc, just like Flamoney did last season.

Thanks Gilberto, goodbye and good luck
For the last time although he looks the same Diaby is NOT Viera and certainly can't tackle!! He will never be a central midfield rock!!!!!!

On Arsenal.com he says he arrived quietly, played well, served his time and moved on without a fuss. Excellent Gilberto i hope there could be more footballers like that unlike Hleb and Adebayor. Well done Gilberto wish you very much luch in the future and the rest of your playing carear

Great Player and showed great loyalty last season. Was great foil for Viera.
We wish him all best in sunny Greece

A loyal servant indeed. It made me laugh reading the official tribute on Arsenal.com and comparing it to Hleb's. Reading between the lines, Hleb's said "Fuck off you greedy c*nt". Nice picture tribute too.
The funniest song I heard was
We though that you were crap
Until you broke your back
I felt a bit sorry for him actually, nice people like that often get shat on.
All the best Gibby - until you play us!

I'll admit I was one of the ones who wrote him off after his first season, didn't see what he contributed.
Was happy to end up eating my words. Loved his attitude on the pitch and off it and thought he was a real role model to our younger players.
All the best Gils!
