Gibbs signs new long-term contract.

Manager Arsène Wenger said: “Kieran made such a great impact last season and the progress he made throughout the year was fantastic. Kieran is an intelligent player with huge quality and he proved last season with his performances that he has great potential. We’re delighted that Kieran has committed his future to Arsenal and we’re all excited to watch his future development at the Club.

"Hi, I'm Kieran Gibbs. Why don't you click on the cut and join me in my very first picspam?"

I was going to go to bed, wallow in my pillow, and seek dreams more fluffy and soft than the cruel reality we Arsenal fans have faced tonight... but I just have to give my two cents worth where Gibbs is concerned first.

He had an unlucky night. He slipped - in much the same way Gael Clichy slipped that night of the 4-4 draw against Sp*rs - and we conceded an early and what proved to be a crucial goal. But that doesn't take away from his performance last week at Old Trafford, or any of his other recent displays against top, top sides. This kid has been playing off a high of confidence and it'd be a shame to see it come back down. I hope he sees that the mistake was the team's for, first of all, failing to create any chances last week, and secondly, failing to go absolutely raw at 2-0 down and explode back into the game with a flurry of goals. I was sad to see him get replaced at half-time because it seemed to clearly represent his own lack of confidence in himself. Arsene Wenger would not have taken him off if Gibbs had been in high spirits, because that is just not the way he rolls. Regardless of tonight, I hope he bounces back, because I think he's more than capable of having a bright, bright future at Arsenal.

Kolo Toure reckons Kieran Gibbs can handle Ronaldo.

I really bloody hope so! He's played very well in the last few games he's been used - with great calm and composure - and I just hope the big stage doesn't get to him.

I may be a bit late with this, but who else thought that Kieran Gibbs rocked the team's socks in the Champions League last Wednesday? This reminds me of when Ashley Cole was out for awhile during the 05/06 season, and Gael Clichy came in and asserted himself the master of left-back. Except, Clichy's not a completely arrogant f***wit, unlike his predecessor. Seems all that Carling Cup experience is paying off early.
