Just travelling back from the game and I can’t believe it.
Cruising for 80 minutes, then we collapse. I’m too tired and gutted to post a proper review, but I will say a few things.
Firstly, Arsene needs a new goalkeeper. Almunia isn’t good enough and Fabianski clearly isn’t either. He literally “threw” away the win today, and he was hardly tested.
Secondly, Abou Diaby is one lazy b*stard. Seeing him today was a disgrace. He strolls around the pitch and for a midfielder, has no idea how to close down or defend. The player is a liability.
I wanted to run onto the pitch and give him a slap.
And finally, and probably the most damning of all, is the fact that Sol Campbell, a 35 year old no-one else wanted and a player we got for free, has more balls and determination than the rest of the squad put together. There was only one player who wanted to win today and it was the stand in captain. And if that’s the case it really is a sad state of affairs.
Campbell, Nasri and Theo played well but apart from that no-one else cared.
But on the plus side, the weather was nice.
