So now we can all bask in the glory of last night’s win and know that we beat both of the San Siro/Guiseppe Meazza greats on their own doorstep with two awesome Arsenal teams, in two different Wenger eras, this time though we beat the holders, and this time we’ll win the Champions league.
Le Grove gave you the 2 nil scoreline, scientifically based on a round of golf that was taken as an omen.
I’m back, I won at golf 2 up and that has to be an omen, I know I said 2-1 but my golf has to be right.
2 nil Arsenal, Senderos and RVP.
We got the scorers wrong but who cares!
Pedro did the match report, and I thought it was spot on, I also thought Diaby played better than Eboue though, not to mention one shot tipped over, one hit the crossbar and two penalties that were never given, I hope they rescind the booking of Eboue and Hleb though, but it’s not the FA and those two aren’t Fat Frank Lampard.
The thing that was different to what we’ve seen of late was the chasing down every ball, getting the tackles in like their lives depended on it and not giving the ball away as much.
Senderos still remains an enigma, if you take away his odd howler, he’s Tony Adams, Eboue for me isn’t it, he played well, but he is the weak link, both in character and technique.
Not a criticism just an opinion.
We know we’ll get the Mancs, Chavs, Real or Barcelona next but that’s life, we’ll be the team that no one wants.
I would like to get the team that beat Seville, but I’m dreaming, Chelsea or ManU will get them if they don’t get us.
On that performance, we are the best team on the planet, so if we play like that again, I don’t care who we get.
Please, oh please, play like that when you get home boys, you’ll smash anyone.
Walcott made a difference when he arrived on the scene and with Robin still to come my confidence has returned, big time.
Fantastic performance thank you Arsenal.
Two quotes, this one from Manc lover Tony Cascarino,
‘It was such a great team effort that you couldn’t pick anyone out, but Philippe Senderos was a man mountain. Kaká is tremendous but he wasn’t given any time or space to cause any damage. Of all Wenger’s players, Senderos has more captain and leadership qualities than any. He makes the odd error but as a leader you cannot fault him and that is why Wenger thinks a lot of him. He was the one dictating things at the back. It is easy to criticise those who make the odd poor decision, but he’s more of a captain than William Gallas’
And this one from Cesc
‘We don’t have 25 internationals like Chelsea so we can’t challenge for all four trophies, but we are in contention for the two that we really want. We are top of the Premier League and we are in the quarter finals of the Champions League after beating the holders at home, so why can’t we win them both?’
Why not indeed you hero! Why indeed!
Now what happens with Kolo you may well ask? Don’t! we get more injuries than an army average field hospital, we can rest players now.
This is my longest ever post and I could go on all day, in the comments section I probably will, so pin your ears back Grovers and enjoy the moment, thanks again team Arsenal, we love you!
