After hi-Jacking Marseille on Tuesday, the Gunners travelled to Wales to hunt some Blue birds. It was a home coming for Aaron Ramsey and a clash that had the potential to be a banana skin for Arsenal especially noting that Cardiff City have shared spoils with Manchester United and taken no captives from Manchester City and Tottenham.
The gunners came out unscathed with 3 goals and 3 points. Aaron Ramsey slipped a header from Ozil past David marshall in the 29th minute. The gunners had to hold onto their 1-0 goal lead till Flamini came from the bench to score an 86th minute super strike to doom the blue birds to defeat. Ramsey would wrap up after Theo’s speed was utilized in the 92nd minute.
We Win When We Score First.
It is becoming customary that an whenever we score first, we are destined to win. in the 5 games we have failed to win this season, we haven’t scored first and didn’t even score in 2 of those games. we lost 3-1 to Aston Villa, drew 1-1 at WBA, lost 1-0 to Chelsea and United and 2-1 to Borussia Dortmund. The confidence level is high when we score first and our defence has grown so tight that we could soak any pressure. Let the Arsenal keep scoring first, we sure would win that game.
Szczesny Saved The Three Points
The Back pages may be singing heroic songs for Aaron Ramsey but the unsung hero at Cardiff was our number one Pole: Wojciech Szczesny. The young pole who kept his 50th clean sheet in 125 arsenal games against Marseille was determined to add another clean sheet to his tally. After Ramsey’s goal, the Blue birds had chances to score but Szczesny clawed away Fraizer Campbells header and collected several other shots. 5 clean sheets in 6 games!! Szczesny would save Arsenal. He was my man of the match. Imagine if one of the goals had entered? A time is coming when Szczesny would be synonymous with Save. Oxford is watching.
Aaron of Life
Booed some seasons ago, scapegoat-ed some periods ago, this Welsh Maestro is taking headlines by storm. He just there when you need him and the right time. Gone are the days when he fluffs away chances. Gone are the days when he scores as frequent as the rain in the Sahara and deaths attributed to his goals. Now he has grown and rarely misses in front of the goal. The 1st goal was a wonder, so was his second from a tight position. He makes the right runs. Irrespective of the goals, he is breaking opposition attacks well. Forget Messi or Ronaldo, He is Ballon D’Or. Arsenal’s most improved and best player of the season. He breathes life and hope he ends the season with many personal and group accolade.
Attack not Clicking?
It was also another game in which Arsenal, despite the scoreline, didn’t properly click as an attacking force. It seems strange to say it considering the win, but Olivier Giroud looked as if the fixtures might be catching up with him, while Santi Cazorla is trying hard to find some form but struggling to contribute the way he did last season. – Andrew Mangan
In my honest opinion, Santi Cazorla’s performance can be explained with the tweet below,
Yes, players get injuries and sometimes struggle to get back to their best but in recent times, Santi Cazorla has been hugely disappointing and we hope that he can come back to his best sooner rather than later. 5/10 – Gooner Daily.
...Giroud inexplicably stopped playing on 15 minutes after Jack Wilshere had picked him out with a lovely pass. Replays showed Mesut Ozil did not touch the ball when he was played in. Giroud was onside and only had Marshall to beat, but his hesitancy enabled Steven Caulker to clear. Moral to the story? Always play to the whistle. Or always play when there is no whistle… Yahoo Sports.
Flamini Scores, Ozil Assists, Theo Runs and others.
On a day Flamini decided not to scissors his sleeves, he scores a superb goal. His first in 5 years since that wonder goal against Newcastle. Hope he would abide by the Arsenal code. Ozil returned to the top of the assist table with his 2 assists: Ozisst? Theo walcot’s pace was lovely to behold and the defenders always shit in their pants seeing a road runner coming at them them. When he is fit, we would score more goals. He scored a wonderful goal for me last night against Chelsea (playing PES 2014).
Ramsey didn’t rejoice as he grabbed a double, the fans applauded him before, during and after the game. Quite the complete opposite of/for RVP.
I would Wrap up with My Wenger’s Quote of the game:
No we don’t want to sell anybody. We just want to keep our team together. I suffered enough for years for having to sell the players and now we are in a stronger position financially so we are not out there to sell our best players. (asked about selling Ramsey for 50million Pounds)
There is no other way to end a month than an Arsenal win. Happy new week. Happy new month.
