Teenager Marcus Rashford made his Premier League debut by grabbing a brace against some fraudsters in dirty gold clothing. Two quick goals in the first half set the tone for Arsenal to lose 3-2 to a weakened Manchester United side.
The Red Devils looked like the Arsenal side that lost 8-2 in the twilight of Fergie’s reign. These Devils were more or less an under-21 side incapable of winning the FIFA Youth World Cup. Arsenal’s overpriced, overpaid, questionably experienced and psychologically depleted side still found a way to lose to a makeshift United side. Maybe Arsenal could have fielded the youth team to salvage some pride. Ir better still, liaise with Kanu to use Nigeria’s world cup winning side.
It was an embarrassment. Is there a better word? How can you lose to such side with midfielders posing as defenders? Shameful. Now i see how other teams feel when we trash them with our youth team in the Carling Cup.
You have to question the passion on the pitch. Who is Theo Walcott? An English race runner with little or nothing to show in 10 years for Arsenal. Alexis Sanchez has been awful. We have waited long enough. Does Gabriel need Micheal at the back? Maybe a smiley face may have helped. Ramsey? It is time to question these British core at the Emirates. Wenger has shielded them for so long.
On the positive side, Welbeck grabbed a goal. Two goals in two games for the striker. Two goals in two visits to Old Trafford. Can Arsenal look up to him? Ozil also grabbed his 18th assist of the Premier League season, 2 short of Henry’s 20. Will he add this record to a winners medal?
Arsenal are 5 points behind leaders Leicester City and 3 behind Spurs with 11 games to go. Can Arsenal win the Premier League this season? It doesn’t seem so but they need to do it for my Rosicky and World Peace.
Enjoy the yabs. Remember we beat Manchester United 3-0 earlier on in the season.
We may like to send the Arsenal team on loan to Charlton Athletic. Yaya Sanogo grabbed a hat-trick over the weekend. Is that the place of rebirth for Arsenal?
