less is more, some may say. but why can’t we get more if we able to have plenty?. none of these words reflect on weekend games in both Lega Calcio and premier league. Arsenal have plenty to cheer about, one of them is their captain’s comeback ahead of mid week schedule. and you know what? he had so much to do in midfield including feed on superb passes to his forwards. i believe he is born to be one of those leaders. marching forward and win the match were probably his mission. i am proud of him and i am sure the fans are agreeing with me. finished Man C off with solid scoreline: 2-0 to be exact. it is a good moral boost for the boys ahead of champs league match this mid week. i am going to watch, that’s for sure.
while Arsenal completely controlled the game with ease, AC Milan had not done the same. true, they had the most possession in the game but had not done enough to threaten Lecce’s goalkeeper who seemed had simple things to deal with in the first half. subs were more concerned in the bench, with David Beckham and Ronaldinho appeared to be very cautious and alarmed on what’s happening on the field. 2nd half seeing more attacks from Rossoneri but none of those efforts made the crowd cheer. Carlitos decided to bring on Ronaldinho and Sheva to replace Seedorf and Kaka respectively. both of players had failed to shine and helped Milan to get better in position and perhaps that was the exact reason Ancelotti had brought another attacking minded players on. clearly, they made a positive impact but not enough to make Lecce well-structured defense rattle a bit. it was Milan who seemed a bit more nervous than their visitors who had their 10men on the ball throughout the match. the waiting finally paid off when Senderos made a strong header toward Lecce’s goal and gave the advantage to Milan’s side. not long after the first goal, Milan doubled their lead and this time through their veteran striker, Inzaghi. and this was done in less than 2 minutes of the final whistle. i guess miracles do happen in football.
