A quick thought: Arsenal 2 – 3 West Brom

September 25, 2010

Just a quick thought because I am tooooooooooooooooo angry and disappointed to write something.

We were poor for the more than an hour, our defence was in shambles, no proper marking, too much space was given, letting the Albion players come to them, not eliminating the threat early, giving the possession away many times, not clearing the ball early, lethargic display, our passing was poor, Almunia, though he made the penalty save, was ‘no comment’, just everything in the first hour was bad about Arsenal.

I had said before the more time we take to kill the match the more Albion will fancy their chances. That’s what happened, our play was pathetic and Albion took the initiative.

The only good thing is that we didn’t give up until the end and Nasri was brilliant in the final 20 minutes. Still we want all the players to perform like that from beginning and not when we are three goals down.

That’s three points dropped for sure and here I was thinking that by tonight we would be only a point behind Chelsea.

That’s all. When I get my anger to subside, I will write something good and positive about Arsenal from this match.

Have your say in the comments.

p.s. still can’t believe it that we have lost!
