I'd agree with you in the comparison with Fabregas and Nasri. Fabregas grew into his role at Arsenal over a few seasons, whilst I still think Nasri never had the consistency at Arsenal that Cesc had. Carlorza has hit the ground running.
It's clear Arteta isn't the same type of player he was a Everton, but he is doing a decent job. I think Wilkinson also has shined this season.
All the Arsenal supporters I know really don't like Gervinho, he isn't doing too bad I thought. Though he is a bit wayward with his shooting sometimes.
