Had Bendtner scored in the dying moments in Barcelona, we could have been at Wembley last night……
I hope the Media wake up this morning and report last night’s game the way they did our match at The Emirates. After we beat the Spanish side at home, every paper, reporter and anyone other than a Gooner said we were lucky, they said we were out played and struggled from start to finish but we won, didn’t we…..
The stats showed we didn’t have the majority of possession, we didn’t have all the shots on goal, we didn’t even have that many chances, but what we did do, was win!
Last night, the Premier League Champions were out played, had little possession, had one shot on target and were second in every aspect of the game and they lost. Good!
Barca didn’t cheat and dive last night, in fact the bad boy was Valencia – how he stayed on the pitch I’ll never know.
Anyway, that’s enough praise for Barca….
On to the usual gossip, another player, well, his father has spoken about his sons so called dream. this one is Axel Witsel:
Axel is ready to play in one of Europe’s three major leagues: Serie A, Premier League or La Liga.
I personally hope that this was his last season with Standard as he needs to grow and to do it he needs to leave the country.
Fiorentina? They have been monitoring my son for a long time and I know there was a contact with their managers but the Italian club is the not the only one interested.
He spoke with Gillet, Mudingayi and also Anthony Vanden Borre. Where he wants to go? He doesn’t have a specific target but he has a dream and it’s called Arsenal, but this doesn’t mean that he’s not open to other clubs.
He’s only 22 but he was Belgium’s best player in 2008 and this season he arrived second.
Is this another player who is calling out to Wenger to sign him?
David Villa did that a few years ago didn’t he, boy did we miss out there……
If this player really wants to play for Arsenal, can we afford to miss out again?
Finally, Nigel Winterburn has had a ‘pop’ at our defending during an interview with The Daily Star:
Pathetic is the only word I can use to describe Arsenal’s defending.
He has questioned our squads stomach for a battle on matchdays, saying:
No matter what the situation is regarding the season, at a club like Arsenal you have to turn in a performance in every game. Given where Arsenal were a couple of months ago, to be left with just fourth place is hard to take.
The supporters were not happy and I don’t blame them – what they’ve seen in the last few months has been so disappointing.
Tell it as it is Nigel, I don’t think many fans would disagree……
