So much for the run of ’winnable games’ we were looking forward to. What an absolutely shit performance that was ; it got what it deserved, it was a shock that Swansea did not have it wrapped up long before it did ; Probably just as well for the Board & Management, as there was not much time left for the frustration to build ; people just up and left ; I bet the pubs in N5 were quiet post match, as 57,000 Gooners decided to go straight home and kick the cat.
AW complained the team are tired, but the reason for that is that the back up players are absolute dog shit, so cannot be trusted if the first choice players need a rest. And who’s fault is that?
Giroud did get a rest, but we all wish he didn’t, as Gervinho showed us his usual bitofadribblemightryandbeatamanohitsgoneoutforagoalkick ‘skills’.
Walcott and Podolski were as close to invisible as you can get for 90 minutes. Cazorla and Jack in the midfield were trying to do it all themselves, and Szczesny did well to keep the score down, but the rest were a disgrace to the shirt. The atmosphere in the ground was pure shit, but as I looked around at my fellow supporters, all I could see was a load of bored people who had seen it all before, and I could not blame anyone for that ; the fanbase are thoroughly pissed off with the current regime and with being promised jam tomorrow. I don’t pay nearly £1000 to be told that fourth place is a trophy.
We have a trip to Athens on Tuesday that is quite frankly the least of our worries right now ; A massive home game against West Brom on Saturday, where the ire of the crowd will be felt if we are not 2-0 up after 30 minutes, and then our only slim, slim chance of getting anywhere near a trophy with Bradford City away next week. If we fail to win both of those games, the poison directed towards the team and manager will be unbearable.
I’m sure we will hear all the stories about who we are gonna buy in the January window, and have the manager dampen expectations by talking about signing ‘Super, super quality’ players, but how none are available. Well, it’s funny how no good players are ever ‘available’, apart from players like Nasri, RvP and Walcott, as they are proudly running down their contracts so they can head off elsewhere ; Are we the only club who has the ‘PLAYER AVAILABLE’ klaxons going off every transfer window?
Earn your money, get out there, spend MY money on some decent players instead of persevering with SHIT players like Gervinho up front in games we need to win.
Arsenal, Arsenal sort it out!
