So it seems that not everyone was happy with our win yesterday. It would appear that going to a ground where Man U and Chelsea have failed to win (along with everyone else who have visited there), scoring foul goals and getting three points just wasn’t good enough.
I’m not suggesting that all our problems are solved, but we gave more in the match yesterday than we did in the last few and that’s what I want to see. Unlike some of you, I believe this team DOES have the talent, it just sometimes lack the application.
I would suggest that some people could do worse than read this.
This comment by Wrenny was worthy of note: It’s disgusting the way these referees keep giving us all these decisions and gifting us goals, something must be done! To make matters worse, they are now denying our opposition perfectly legal goals just to put us top of the league!!! It is appalling, as a REAL Arsenal fan I want to see us in the relegation zone!
What is even more sickening is the way some sections of fans are actually HAPPY when we win matches! What is wrong with you people??? At some point we are going to lose!! Maybe not this week, maybe not next week, maybe not for quite a while in fact, but mark my words we WILL lose another game at some point and it will be UNACCEPTABLE.
What are you gonna do then, huh?? Admit it, you’ll make excuses and rationalise the glaaaaring problems in the team because of all those meaningless games we won!
(Sarcasm is fun)
In other news it is rumoured that Carlos Vela will be heading out on loan in January with his brother saying he is not a happy chappy at all. I can understand his frustration, but on the other hand, he has not exactly fulfilled his promise. I’m a huge fan of his, but I think it’s safe to say that he isn’t coming along as Wenger would have wished. You could say that he doesn’t get the game time to prove himself but we know with Wenger that if you do it in training you will get your chance of game time.
There was a story in the News of the World that Pat Rice is due to retire at the end of the season. The response to this from every gooner I’ve seen is that, while he has been an impeccable servant to Arsenal, the chance to freshen up the backroom staff and bring in a new number two would be something that could only benefit Arsenal. Steve Bould seemed to be the favourite of the fans to get the nod and you’ll have no complaints from me.
It has still to be confirmed by the club, but the story was picked up by Premierleague.com as well so make of it what you will.
Finally, it was a massive day for me on Twitter as I got a reply from Henry Winter!
RT @henrywinter: @ladyarse I was getting to Arshavin…probably his best game of season for #afc. Scored, created, ran his heart out. Needs that every week
Some of you non-twitterers may wonder what the fuss is, well the fact is Mr. Winter very rarely replies to ANYONE, EVER. In fact, he was on Twitter for quite some time before he deemed anyone else being worthy of being followed.
I am well and truly honoured.
Short and sweet today, there’s snow to be played in.
