I’ve never been so gutted.
The numbness is worse than Chelsea in the semi’s, Barca in the final, Spurs in the league cup and Nayim from the half way line… why? Because this could have all been prevented.
What was the difference between Arsenal and Liverpool tonight?
About £38 million worth of talent.
1 shot, 1 goal from Torres.
1 shot, 1 goal for Babel.
Yeah, the penalty was debatable. Only if you were a Dutch ref called Pieter Vink. It was a clumsy and an unnecessary tackle from an experienced player.
Liverpools first goal was Senderos’ fault for player watching. True, but how many players score a header from 16 yards out?
The line up from the start stunk of negativity.
Take the midfield
Eboue (RB) Cesc (CM) Flamini (CM) Diaby (CM) Hleb (CM)
Does that look like a balanced midfield to you?
Diaby is not a great player, he scored tonight but any keeper worth his salt would have saved that near post shot.
Hleb? Great feet, but its like being a man down when we go forward because he will not shoot. Good luck playing like that in Milan Hleb, you’ll last a year… still, the ice cream is good?
Flamini, what a fighter. Will he sign? I doubt it. Would you if Milan offered you double?
Theo has been mustard for the last 3 games, what does the boy have to do to get a starting berth?
Eboue has been so bad, it brings a tear to my eye.
He was so fucking abysmal tonight my brother nearly burst a blood vessel screaming at the screen. He can’t pass, he can’t finish… fuck… he can barely control the ball.
Tell me. What right does he have to play at Arsenal? He is atrocious. Bring back Eddie Mcgoldrick, Chris Kiwomya, David Hillier, Glen Helder… any of those shitters would do a better job.
How is this for Arsene humour. We had Eboue and Yaya Toure on trial at the same time and we kept Eboue (The first time we had him on trial in 2004)!
What a fucking joke…
Now onto Adebayor…
Ok, how can you slate a player who has bagged so many goals for you?
Well digest these facts,
- Marcus Stewart (19 Prem goals second top scorer 1999-00)
- Kevin Phillips (30 goals in a season top scorer 2000-01)
- Chris Sutton (19 Goals 1997-98 top scorer)
His first touch is outrageously bad. Why can’t he roll a pass back?
He holds the line like a school kid? I counted him offside 3 times in the first 15 minutes.
His finishing is poor. What possessed him to try and chip it to the far post when he was played through? Thierry, Wrighty, Bergkamp, Anelka, Wiltord… Kaba Diawara would have all buried that.
That my friends is the difference between greatness and going out in the quarters.
With Ade we’ve taken a stone and shined it up… Arsenal should be buying the rough diamonds.
Torres is a rough diamond, everyone knew about him… why weren’t we in for him? He gets the ball and your heart starts racing. Do you get that with Ade? I don’t…
I find it difficult to slate Senderos? Its quite clear he is out of his depth. I love to defend him, but he was exposed twice tonight. Its not good enough, but we’ve all been saying the same thing for years?
Special praise goes out to Theo. Your run was mesmerising, you are showing us all why Arsene spent so much money on you… about time to! Why the whole team felt the need to channel all the balls to Ade is beyond me. Well played though, you’re a keeper for next year, that’s for sure.
I know the Flamster went off through injury, but that is where our problem lies.
Great first 11, shame about the rest.
Still what are you going to do?
Listen to people tell you how you are spoilt by success?
Oh we won a trophy 3 years ago, tonight was ok then… this season was, erm? Progress!
Listen to morons telling you that you sound like a Manc and you should go and support another team?
Fuck being a Manc, take a look at what happens at Milan, Barca, Madrid, Juve and Inter if you don’t win a trophy.
There is no shame in expecting to win things. A winning mentality is a culture and it should be embodied by the fans and the players, just like it is at all the great clubs, countries and businesses.
That this is a knee jerk reaction…
Define Knee Jerk:
An automatic response to something.
Ok, I’ve had since the 16th of February to think about this…
In that time I’ve seen,
Ok, my conclusion?
Its been shit.
If your idea of an automatic response is 52 days, you should go and work for the claims department at Zurich Insurance…
How Arsene knows and will rectify it in the summer…
Get real people, Arsene doesn’t know… because we all knew what was going to happen in the summer… and sure enough, come what April… it has.
Arsenal are loaded, the fans are skint… and we’ve gone another season with fuck all to show for it.
Arsene knows? Does he fuck…
