Cladded on their infamous red and white, the Arsenal went to Liverpool to take on Everton. Everton has the odd record of suffering its two worst defeats in the premier league in the hands of the gunners (6-1 and 7-0); they were ready for the challenge.
Arsenal has not lost to the Toffees since 2007 but Wenger expected a tough challenge thus resting few key players in the drab draw against Aston Villa to make hay for the Merseyside encounter.
It is disappointing to see the gunners draw again. Returnee forward, Theo “sign da ting” Walcott put Arsenal ahead at about 54 seconds but MauroneFellaini, returning from a suspension pulled David Moyes’ side level.
My favourite central back, Laurent Koscienly had his work cut as he left the pitch injured within the early stages of the game. In came Gibbs. The rest is dust-bin-history: near misses, saves, howlers and what have you.
I am annoyed with this match not because of the match but because of the Villa match. I would have preferred a 3 point at villa and lose at Godison park that will gift me 3 out of 6 points than take two draws with 2 out of 6 points.
I feel personally hurt because I defied all odds to watch this match in conditions not favourable. A win would have made me forget the worries. My internet service provider decided to go haywire and the twitter-o-sphere was beyond my reach.
Every gooner should be vilified with the gaffer, because the gamble didn’t pay. We are falling back from the Manchester teams; 12 points away. Chelsea drew to Fulham, Westbrom lost and yet we could capitalize. Unfortunately spurs have overtaken us, no thanks to the world’s famous chimpanzee and their 2-1 victory over Liverpool.
Any positives? We were not beaten despite the barrage of attacks and pivot-ism of Fellaini. According to James, the Arsenal statistician, Arsenal has not lost a Wednesday match; except against Schalke 04 recently. We didn’t concede in the second half thus upholding the queer record of being the only team yet to concede in the last 15 minutes of the season.
It is high time Arsene Wenger and Arsenal wake up and smells the coffee. We aren’t playing nor winning like champions. We are like a mid-table team trying to finish in the Europa zone: more draws than wins.
Enough of my lamentations; we host Swansea next and Mark Clattenburg should be the man in black.
