Yeah, like, the Royal Mail should sponsor the league cup, because so many teams have been mailing it in…
So less the rebirth of Project Youth, more the continuation of Project I’m not really that interested but the fresh air was pleasant.
A 1-0 victory over a pretty average team is still a victory, but it was disappointing to see the team knock it out in second gear. I’d rather see a bunch of kids fail trying hard, versus a team full of second teamers Royal Mail it in because they’re not fussed.
Maybe I’m being harsh, but I do think one of the biggest issues Wenger struggles with is squad motivation. Managing minds and legs isn’t his strong suite. I’d have thought players would have been more motivated to blow things up to prove they’re worthy of a first-team slot.
Tough to moan about a win, but also kind of odd that we can’t drop Doncaster?
Still, can’t say I’m not enjoying Wenger play mind games with Alexis. Watching him mope about was pretty amusing. Wenger isn’t going to pull out the stops for someone who plays for himself.
What’s with Giroud and Alexis not liking each other?
It was nice to see Jack Wilshere make a full 90minutes without drama.
Outside Maitland-Niles incredible recovery pace, there wasn’t really too much of interest.
The League Cup is so pointless these days, they might as well bin it.
I have very little to speak of today, so I’ll catch you on the other side.
Yeah, I mailed in a post… just like the team. What a f*cking hypocrite.
