I F*cking Love It When Gilberto Scores!
It’s been a few days since our Premiership opener against Aston Villa at the Emirates Stadium and while most Gooners (including myself) predicted an easy 3-0 win, Martin O’Neill had other ideas and played how most teams play against Arsenal – very defensive and very compact.
I’m not going to complain because if there is a system you can use to get a result then you have to do it. It’s up to us to come up with a way around it.
To be fair, Arsenal had enough clear chances to win comfortabl but unfortunately most of the chances seemed to fall to Eboue instead of any one of our attacking players! C’est la vie…
But the highlight of the game was the introduction of Theo Walcott after 73 minutes.
He looked like a brilliant player and according to Myles never lost the ball! Amazing!
And it was his cross that gave Gilberto the opening to smash in an emphatic equaliser!
One of my favourite sights is Gilberto scoring a goal. Remember when he scored against FC Thun in the Champions League last season?
Just like on Saturday, he went totally berserk!
It’s just a massive release and I love seeing it! It shows he cares, it shows he wants to win and it’s just how the other 60,000 Gooners are feeling inside the stadium!
Off the pitch however, it’s the same old story with Cashley Cole and no-one is any the wiser on what the hell is going on. I bet I’ve just given it the kiss of death now and he’s probably just joined Chelski as soon as you’ve read this.
Then the William Gallas story. It’s clear we’ve made a bid for the versatile defender and at 29 I’d say he’s worth no more than Â£5/6 million. But there are rumours that Chelski want to swap him for Ashley Cole!
I’m not even going to dignify that rumour with a response…
