A fabulous display from the young lions last night, Pedro will do a match report later, but I wanted to post this first.
We were awesome from the middle to the front and captain Almunia had his best ever game for the Arsenal, he should keep the armband as he showed what a captain should do, well done Manuel, England’s next number one.
The midfield were solid and Cesc and Diaby should be the pairing with Theo and Nasri on the flanks, this should be the way forward, and before anyone says that Diaby played off Ade, I know, but think what it would be like if we dropped Denilson and brought back RVP or another forward, unstoppable.
The defence was superb with Eboue doing a stellar job but Song was woeful, there were a few of you last night saying he scored so get off his back, but his shit defending led to two conceded goals, he gave away a shocking free kick for the first and he gave a brilliant assist to Guiza for the second, if it wasn’t for Almunia there would have been more, he simply isn’t good enough and the quicker Wenger realises it, the quicker we’ll start winning things again, that’s three games we’ve played on the spin and we’ve conceded 4 goals, all of them down to Song.
I don’t hate him, I just think he is not good enough, he is the weak link, when Djourou came on we looked more solid, but Song is slow and will cost us.
He scored a good goal, not bad 2 in 4 years, but we’ll be a much better team without him.
Last night was one of the greatest games I have seen us play and up there with the two Milan games, the Juve one and the Real Madrid win, it was great to watch, the finishing was top drawer and we really look like we can do something playing like this, don’t blow it Arsene, you have the players, play the right ones.
Ade and Eboue were simply superd last night, Eboue was played in his one and only position and he did well, but Nasri, Theo, Cesc and Diaby carved them up, and regardless of how bad they were, we were playing in a shit hole of hate and we hammered them, all credit to the referee.
Let’s see if we can push on from there. Ramsey played his part and that’s what we need waiting in the wings, with Vela, Bendtner and Wilshere there too, the future looks assured, but Song has to go.
I look forward to Pedro’s summing up later.
Have a great day and go find some spuds to torment!
