Well, Bendtner big Bollocks, it appears you read yesterdays blog and took heed. Only one goal though… seriously?
What can I say about yesterdays performance that hasn’t already been said a thousand times on the feeds this morning!
I won’t go into the ins and outs of the performance but I will have a quick player reveiw:
Commanded his area excellently all game, he caught every single cross and his distribution, bar one kick was exceptional. He rolls the ball out to the the flanks almost as soon as he catches the ball , it caught Newcastle out a few times yesterday. He also made a great save at the near post from an Oba’ header. One for the not to distant future I feel.
Solid most of the game, had a few decent runs. I like Hoyte and think he is a solid foil for Sagna.
Boy did I shit my pants when I saw his name on the team sheet. I came in at half time most unimpressed but I think I had my song stained glasses on because everyone else thought he played well. In the second half he played very well bar one poor clearance. He does go about his business in a very uninterested way? Still, two solid performances in a row. Well played.
Now, I am a fan of Senderos. Anyone who plays in a defence that keeps 8 clean sheets in the champions league on the way to the final is a good player. However, last night… he was shite. He missed headers, his passing was crap and he must have comically fallen over about 8 times. Then in about the 86th minute oba broke free, rounded the keeper and Senderos tracked back to make a dramatic clearance! What a save! He righted his wrongs in a second… Hopefully he can kick on from that!
Fucking excellent. His physical presence has doubled over the summer, he looks a real menace going forward and his defending was good too. Arsenal seem to be Europe’s premier left back production unit. His crossing was out of this world yesterday!
His play was patchy. Moments of genius, followed by a poor pass. He grew with the game yesterday, and one thing is for sure… he gets bums off seats! When he surges forward, the crowd have the same anticipation they used to when Thierry and Pires took players on. I am looking forward to seeing what he can offer this season. Anyone questioning his potential or ability needs to take this into account:
HE IS 18!
A good performance. He is fast and has quick feet and will always cause the opposition problems. If he gets his shooting boots on, he will be a real asset on the wing this season.
Rough in the tackle, and calm on the ball. He is like a mini Cesc, except he is taller and more powerfully built. His passes strayed a bit, but he is only young;I expect him to be as effiecient as Fab4 which is ridiculous. The goal was amazing though, I was at the perfect angle to see him hit it, and if he’d hit it another inch to the right, I would have taken the shot in the face. A good performance.
A humorous song was sung about Diarra leaving Chelsea because Cashley was making him feel uncomfortable in the changing rooms. It was very funny, a shame I have forgotten it?
What a good little player. Tenacious, fast, incredibly strong on the ball and he has the ability to play himself out of tight situations. Kind of in a PV04 kind of way? He looks like a faster, stronger more productive version of Gilberto. I think we could see more of Gilberto in defence if last nights showing was anything to go by?
Came on late, but worth a mention. He changed the game for me. When Diaby came on, Newcastle started panicking. He is another big player who is very skilful. His tackling was good last night and his attacking play was much more decisive than normal.
Worked hard all night and deserved a goal. He draws defenders out wide and he has a great touch. He also linked up well with BBB. From a corner in the second half he some how managed to turn this header towards the top corner; it is amazing how he seems to fashion chances out of nothing.
Bendtner Big Bollocks (BBB):
He certainly lived up to his “Balon D’or” candidate billing. I thought his play and work rate was brilliant yesterday. He is surprisingly nimble on his feet for a big lad. His header was the type of goal Arsenal have been lacking for ten years, and it made up for the earlier header he missed. I love the arrogance of the player and hope he fulfils his potential and becomes an asset to Arsenal.
In conclusion, a great performance.
I think Sam Allardyce deserves the sack. I may call into Talk shite this evening and see if I can spark a debate?
Enjoy the rest of your day fellow grovers!
