I have sat in front of my PC for hours not knowing how to start this post after the Swansea shocker at the emirates. 86 minutes gone in to the game and there was hope of an Arsenal winner, only for Michu to score within the next minute. not what i expected after the no-coffee at Everton
Wenger and his Bould assistant had been asleep on the bench ever since, relaxed and feeling nonchalant until Michu scored the opener. Prior to the goal they had only felt concerned when Giroud wasn’t given a free kick; or was it a penalty?
The hope of a winner was extinguished by that Muchi opener. The fans and Arsenal may have hoped for an equalizer but definitely not the second goal by the on-fire Michu. Swansealona Muchi-fied the emirates as Michu tucked in the second after Jenkinson had given away the ball.
Poor Jenkinson, He was one of our better players before the error. I feel sorry for him as he may not forget this day in a hurry. He was an attacking weapon but none converted and Walcott was on holiday.Walcott and his clamour for first team football was wasteful in his passes and toothless.
Only Szczesny stood tall amongst the 14 gunners that tasted match action on Saturday, saving a lot of goals to earn my man of the match. The rest were dismal, playing with fear and mustering only half chances.
They say we are the only team in the Premier League yet to concede a goal in the last 15 minutes before Saturday but we conceded 2 in the last 5 minutes. Is Emirates a fortress for us? 3 wins, 4 draws and 3 lost in the last 10 games?
Since winning spurs 5-2, we have changed gear towards being a mid-table team while spurs have progressed with wins. Chelsea and Westbrom lost again, yet we couldn’t use this opportunities. 2 wins out of our last 3 games should have seen us 3rd on the log but we are now behind Westham and co.
We can’t continue like this. I believe Wenger has lost the plot. It is high time he packs. Maybe the Arsene-Must-Go (AMG) camps are right after all. Gazidis and his board need to look beyond coming fourth. Anything short of a trophy and a Champions League spot should show Arsene the Emirates’ door. He is growing more mediocre by the day.
With these performances, I wonder if Sagna and Walcott would be comfortable signing long term contracts with a club heading for the mid-table.
Any positives? Rosicky returned but could do nothing. Could he have done better to prevent the second Michu goal? I can’t say.
In Arsene We Trust or Rust.
