Lack of news is good news, but...

Hey there, I'm a newbie at the Verma-loving community, and as such, I spotted the relative tiredness, or should I say, injury - caused lack of activity on this board.
It made me sad, because I am, as I figure you are as well, always Verma - hungry.

Given that I can't really contribute to the already well-filled TV trivia, I figured we could do a little quiz that could distract us for the time he is off the pitch.

Q: Where was Thomas Vermaelen born?

Delete if not post-worthy.

Also, this can be stretched to an Arsenal quiz.

Most of you have already seen this video, but since it's been really slow here lately and there might be someone who still hasn't seen it I figured it's worth posting. Everyone else is encourged to post too. I know a lot of people link videos and articles on Twitter, but those who don't have an account miss these things. Besides, it's nice to see some activity here.

"....but now he must grow"

Former Arsenal Defender Martin Keown: Thomas Vermaelen Had An Outstanding Season But Now He Must Grow

Ex-England man wants Belgian to 'become a leader' at the club...

Former Arsenal star Martin Keown has hailed Thomas Vermaelen's first season at the Emirates Stadium and has challenged him to push on to greater heights next term.

The 24-year-old Belgium international joined the north Londoners from Ajax in the summer and has settled into life in the Premier League with ease at the heart of the Gunners' defence.

In what proved, by boss Arsene Wenger's own admission, a disappointing season defensively for Arsenal this term, Vermaelen was one of the few to excel in his role at centre-back and Keown has now called on the Belgian to build on his hugely successful first year in England.

"He's been outstanding, without doubt, and it's [only] his first year," Keown told Arsenal TV Online.

"What I'd like to see him now do is grow, I'd like to see him become a leader, I'd like to see him become more vocal. It's difficult watching from the sidelines but I get the feeling he is still feeling his way into the team.

"What I love about him is that he attacks the ball. People criticised him and said he was just five foot 11 but he proved it doesn't matter. We need him to grow, we need him to understand his role. Once he does that he can bring the rest of the back four with him and organise that line."

Long time no see.

So, the season is over. Has been for a good while already, so I know this post comes a little late. But anyway, since I think we can all agree Verma had a pretty good first season I thought we could have a spam post. Anything related to his season 2009-2010 is welcome. Photos, videos, gifs, quotes, you name it, as long as it's from this past season. Go ahead, spam as much as you ever want!
