sad sad Saturday indeed for me. i dont have to dig up my old-still-bleeding wound. the result against Sunderland had stayed long enough for me to stay away from any football news. i picked up a headline today and how we, once again, learned from the painful last second in Stadium of Light. it’s the same old thing running back and forth, how Arsenal painfully pickup the broken pieces and try to mend it back again. on Saturday, we were reminded how awful our full back is.
Song sent off for silly mistake which im sure Wenger wouldnt let him off easily. we had plenty of opportunities including penalty kick which should have been our winning goal. Rosicky has missed his shots during matches and only Arshavin can match his records. he was probably took the penalty because he was wearing the armband. as much as i adored his performance on the day, i truly blamed him and Clichy for our lost points.
Clichy, who has yet to convince me as solid LB once again showing how flimsy he is on tough times. his nervousness caused havoc when it was merely seconds away from the win, he decided to kick the ball away clumsily which bounced off toward Koscielny’s back and later picked up by Darren Bent. it was SECONDS away from winning the match but we gave it away once more. it might have been the first time this season but we all know it wont stop here. in the last couple of seasons, we squandered our lead in last minutes of the game and ended up losing.
if we want to be considered as champions, we cant afford to play like that. it’s painful to see. i dont mind if we are Leicester or Kettering Town but we are not. they will continue to mock us and will never stop unless we win something. am i at fault for wanting to win trophies? do i sound insane if i want us to beat Chelsea? no, i dont think so. we are capable of doing many things but we have so far been disappointing. it breaks my heart seeing Arsenal crumbled too easily in the early stage. but it is not the end of the day. we have plenty important away games which we cant take them lightly. a trip to Fulham, Aston Villa, Totenham, Everton, Birmingham and two other top clubs ground have haunted us for the last decade. Sunderland wont be the last to bring us down. there are plenty more, that’s why we must not linger far too long on this sadness and must move on before the guilt erode our integrity.
