Stupid, again

I don't know whether I can write something coherent after last night ugly result. Once again, we looked promising in the beginning but crushing down in the end. Some people were blaming the last 2 goals to goalkeeper, Almunia who apparently had done well despite his recent hiccups. Honestly, the defence looked worrying, especially rookie Traore, but I have much more fear toward our attacking boys. At times Cesc was looking rather slow to pump his creative passes to front men, Eduardo & Arshavin and looking rather awkward in last minutes. And he wasn't the one who clearly out of tune. Eduardo was simply restless being Van Persie's deputy up front and not once his shot troubled nearly-perfect Chelsea goal keeper, Petr Cech. He was clearly unable to control the ball and most of the time out of pace to compete with JT and Carvalho.

When we look a lot closer, the main problem isn't our defence. Yes, we had certain problems handling in-form strikers, Drogba and Anelka and at times we were too lenient, but that didn't contribute to our loss yesterday. Our boys dominated really well with some entertaining play shown by them making it a lot more champions than others had thought. But whenever they were close enough to score, they eventually pass the ball back to someone else who clearly not in a position to score which in turn send it once more at someone further behind and ended at our own half; this is ridiculous.

Honeymoon was over before it had even started. I can't say further because the more I think about it the more frustrated I'm getting. In short, the coach need to buy 2 players at least in order to safeguard our chances to win any title this season. Whoever says we don't need a CF is terribly wrong. Yes, B52 will be fit come January but it doesn't mean we're guaranteed a safe place at top 4 on table. Threats are coming from every angle and most recently from out city Rivals, Totenham Hotspur. And we must keep in mind that African Cup is there and will definitely spoil our mood. Eboue, and Song won't be available and losing the latter is going to be disaster for the team and the coach himself.

The question is, will he buy?

Fucking stupid

I know I am over the top over choosing my headline but yesterday Arsenal were nothing but bunch of kids having fun in the park with their friends from the neighborhood. We did alright during the attack but we made too many errors with our passings and this has put everything into dust including rare chance from E9 who was close enough to score but unable to find accuracy on his shot. There we were marching forward without any clear direction and obviously failed. I don't blame the coach for this mess but I wish he had seen the goal from Sunderland to overhaul his struggling side by introducing some fresh legs. Honestly, I was hoping to see some changes right after HT. Ramsey and Rosicky were a bit sore last night and should have been replaced by Walcott and Vela in the 60th minutes. Enough is enough and I am tired writing this. I am sleepy and tired from last night's flight and haven't been able to conjure up my strength no matter how much I spent on my sleep. And you, Arsenal, has made everything worse than I had predicted. Sign off

The result: Arsenal vs Tottenham Hotspur

We conquered one of our archest rivals in history and claiming 3 points to stay on third in the league. Most of the fans wouldn't have thought 3 goals plus a cleansheet could've been attained from a derby. With current form, Tot have been able to slip past through Le'pool and sit comfortably on the 4th spot. But last night was the key to unlock our crisis from battering match last week.

Though we had not played very well especially in the 1st half, the home fans clearly gave Arsenal something to cheer about. Contrary to usual cheers, the fans singing their heart out till the end of the game. I have always been upset by the way Gooners behave themselves on the stadium. Yes, we have one of the most conducive atmosphere in England but it doesn't mean we should just keep quiet and relax forgetting about the team we support playing really hard on the field. Come on you Gooners, let's cheer our players from now on.

Back into the game; Arsenal came out very different on the 2nd half and really pushing hard on the other side of the field. With all that another goal was able to produce through RVP effort.

From what I heard, Keane was talking crap about Tot being in the same league as Arsenal and ready to de thrown their city rivals from 3rd spot. Well, at times it should be better if you just keep your mouth shut. I remember in the earlier season, when O'Shea was commenting on Burnley and clearly wanting to 'teach' the recently promoted side a lesson about premier league; Unfortunately for him, Burnley ended up being the winner for the match while ManU were left with nothing but their shirts and pants.

A lesson to learn indeed for everyone. Thank God our players rarely speak evil before a match starts.
