Gppd stuff, I think mikel is one of those players that folk either love or hate. Anyway, I am glad to see that he's secured his future.

Yeah it was reported that this contract was on the table a few weeks ago, now it's official that he's signed it

fantastic. he is a player that i hope spends his career with us. hopefully ancelloti will exploit his attacking strengths and not just force a defensive game on him

I second that elk (didn't think I'd ever second an elk, let alone a sexelk, but we only live once).

I'm also convinced that his accurate short-passing game and ability to retain ball in confined spaces, can be used to great effect further up the pitch.

All we need is to attach an electrode to him, which delivers a 40,000 volt jolt to his nether regions, when the tiniest flicker of a thought of shooting bubbles up in his brain.

I think this season is crucial for him, as he really needs to up his game a notch further.

If we see more of the same for another season, then i'm not sure he will ever be more than a squad player.

I think he has to make an effort to be more creative. If he sticks to what he's been doing, all he'll be is a poorer version of Essien.

Ok i know that he played a more advanced role for Nigeria, but I am slightly worried about him in a more advanced role. I'm not too sure about his creativity, but I do like his short range passing...but I feel he'd be better back in the holding role!

I think talk of him being "creative" doesn't necessarily mean playing further forward. If Ancelotti is sticking by the diamond he used at Milan - as seems to be the case pre-season - Mikel could play at the base and the "creativity" could be encouraging him to play long passes, a la Pirlo.

That will be interesting to watch, as I think he is quality when he is on his game.
