    Doesn't seem to have a thread, which possibly tells it's own story.

    A complete non-event of a player these days. Defensively average a best and pretty much pointless when we have the ball, surely the time has come for a couple of new leftbacks? Clichy has survived for far too long just because he's better defensively than Kolarov, but that's not exactly something to be proud of. If he was Sagna level at defending then you could excuse his lack of attacking, but he's nowhere near that.

    Had his pants pulled down by Roberts today

    He doesn't deserve one, worst corner flag we have ever had.

    he will not be here next season as hes out of contract. Should have been sold after the disastrous 2012/13 season along with Kolarov.

    Used to be a much better defender than Kolarov.

    No longer the case.

    But Kolarov hasn't improved.

    I really like Clichy and think many of our fans always have underrated him. When he was in his prime he was really good going forward as well as defending but never really got the recognition I think he deserved. Sadly he's been very poor this season and maybe his age and recent injuries has taken his toll on him.

    Anyway he's been a great servant to our club and has always been very reliable. Even if his poor form continues I do hope that us fans don't forget that and gives him the farewell he deserves towards the end of the season.

    Agree. He's simply on the wane and it's time for us to look elsewhere, but he's been a very good player for us.

    We have kept hold of him too long as we have with many players.

    He is no longer a viable option and will be off in the summer. Unfortunately Kolorov has another year after that.

    We have the worse 2 left backs in the league still can't believe we brought so many young wingers and loaned them out instead of addressing this

    Kolarov can always be sold/loaned, will not be hard with him only having 1 year left.
