Good morning! A very quick post from me as I’m actually being asked to do stuff at work outside sourcing cat memes. It’s a damn liberty.
Anyway, interesting that everyone is coming around to the fact that certain players are under-performing because they’re overplayed. Vindication is good, just a shame vindication has to come when it’s visible. I mean, it’s like waiting for the house cat to die before accepting that the diet of bread and cheese is probably not acceptable.
Arsenal vs Bayern
Ahhh well, we didn’t expect to win did we? The shame of it is, that once again, there was a mitigating circumstance standing in the way of what was once again, a ‘glorious failure’. (Alex coined that)
I can’t write this report with any sort of neutrality, because I haven’t seen the game back and as far as I’m concerned, the way the match played out is we dominated the chances until our keeper found himself sent off harshly for conversing a penalty. Then the match was only going in one direction… A loss. And so it was.
So the big one is here, Arsenal take on Bayern Munich, Europe’s best team. The team that beat us last year. The team everyone wants to watch.
After seeing City taken out of the competition last night by a Barcelona who were a long way off their best; there was a sharp reminder that at the highest level, if you’re even 2% off you’re game, you will be punished and it’ll be harsh. Manchester City made the fatal mistake of playing the woeful Demichelis and they paid the ultimate price when he was sent off for a lazy challenge on Lio Messi.
