Oh we did, Senderos, Gilberto and Eboue (the bad one)
When Eboue is on song he’s fantastic, but suddenly a switch goes and he becomes mentally ill, I thought Wenger had that sorted, obviously not.
We lost our first game since West Ham, but against West ham we had 29 shots and they had one, it was the biggest miscarriage of justice ever seen at a football match, but last night was shocking.
Were do I begin? A fantastic start, Eboue (the good one) through to Bendtner he crosses and in goes sniffer to put us one up, this could be the night.
Great movement follows then Senderos gets the ball, oh dear, he make’s his customary howler early, Gilberto compounds it and we’re level.
The rest is history and should be quickly forgotten.
Wenger has got to stop using his Carling cup team in the champions league. It doesn’t matter who we get next and it doesn’t matter if we play at the Grove last, we did that with PSV and lost, and lost to the easiest team in the competition, so as long as we avoid English teams we’ll be fine, we have to play the big boys at some point.
What isn’t good is losing, I know we have injuries but there are areas that need to be addressed before it’s too late.
Senderos should go I’m afraid, I like his spirit, I like him, but he’s just not good enough for this team, you can’t put it down to lack of matches because he make the same mistakes time after time, Gilberto’s heart is not in it any more and Eboue is fast becoming a liability.
Denilson will be good but he’s not there yet, Eduardo is not a winger and nor is Theo, if Wenger want wingers, he should go and buy them, he did with Pires and Overmars but since then he tries to convert full backs or center midfielders.
Toure can’t seem to play with Senderos and that’s a worry come the African cup of Nations, I think Djourou will be good enough, but I don’t think he get the nod ahead of Senderos.
Kolo did not have his best game last night he should have stopped the second goal going in, but I think that’s a confidence thing and he sees Senderos next to him and get nervous, well that’s the way I see it anyway.
We had the possession last night but how many shots? 2 on target? Not good enough, I hope he’s learned something from this or we could struggle against
I pray that Cesc is not injured and that Hleb gets back soon, we’re missing him, maybe we should buy Modric after all.
Let’s also hope that Robin, the boy wonder, returns on Saturday, there was nothing on show that made me think we could score at will last night.
This is not a Wenger rant I’m just saying we should address the problems that could cost us trophies this season, before it’s too late.
I know I’m depressed, but I hate losing, hate it, hate it.
Anyway it was Seville and it was away and we did have a second string team out so it will only get better, it’s not like we lost to Bolton is it?
I liked our kit and Bendtner played well, we’re top of the league, still in all the competitions, and the sun will still come up in the morning.
Cheer up Grovers, I just did!
