It feels no better this morning does it? In fact it feels worse!!
I could have checked my lottery numbers last night and found out I’d won the jackpot but it wouldn’t ease any feelings I have right now…
Something has to change at Arsenal and soon before we slip off down the table and kiss our season goodbye.
Yesterday was a gutless, cowardly and dire 45 minutes and it came against a side we haven’t lost to at home in the league in seventeen years.
We went 2-0 up due to sloppy play by the oppositions goalkeeper and defence and then we spurned chance after chance to put the game out of reach. Then in the second half we just hit the self destruct button.
The manager, well he broke up a winning defence to bring back Kos in place of Johan Djourou, big mistake which proved costly when yet again he gave away a silly needless free kick which gifted them a goal from the resulting free kick. Would Djourou got his head in the way of that cross? Yes, I expect so too.
Nasri, our best player on the pitch who was fired up for this game was taken off when we needed a goal, why?
Why did Wenger keep both Denilson and Song on when we needed a goal?
Why keep on a slow sluggish Cesc Fabregas who in my view kept slowing the game down yesterday and talking of which what is he doing for that free kick which ultimately cost us the game?
Where was Denilson when Bale was through on goal, side stepping away from the player, that’s where!
Why have we not got enough players in our side who want to fight for every ball, fight for the love of the club and ultimately fight for the shirt on their back?
What makes it all so so sad is that our fans will wake up feeling like shite, will Wenger? Will most of the players? I doubt it, they will still get paid won’t they and no doubt they will just brush it aside and think about Braga. Meanwhile we all suffer until the next time.
Who do you blame, Wenger for buying the wrong players to give us steel again, the players for the lacklustre show or both?
Wenger says some of the players were tired, well my answer is why play them then? We have Lansbury, JET, Bendtner, Vela all fit and desperate to play, why not pick them?
If Wenger won’t buy these players, is it finally time to find a manager who will?
Olivers match report will be up later….
