Earlier in the season, much was said of Pienaar and Osman being too lightweight and small.
Pienaar took a while to settle in but then balanced the midfield, before he was off to Africa and back injured. In his first full season in EPL, he has to become fitter as most overseas players do. Osman was doing well until injured, and was the leading scorer for the first 6 weeks or so. Without them helping Arteta (who has not been 100%), the supply to the Yak fell away.
Now how small is Ashley Young and look at him playing with a free role, creating and linking play? If they cannot catch you they cannot hurt you.

Think thats what he’s getting at. He wants a team of midgets.

ps:. Not to mention the Golden Vision.
If you?re good enough you?re big enough.
Didn't see many complaints about Ossie?s goals against Sunderland, Larissa and Derby.

Young has it in abundance; Piennar and Osman do not
