Player Ratings: Braga 2 – 0 Arsenal

November 24, 2010

Well we are where we deserve to be. We have become so much predictable that any team can come and beat us. There is no problem because they just have to watch us keep the ball and score a goal on every opportunity they get. Be it a counter or a set piece, they just have to be discipline at the back. In fact sometimes we will gift the goals as we lose interest in the match. Read the rest of this entry »


Braga 2 – 0 Arsenal: Shit happened again!!

November 24, 2010

Braga: 2 (Matheus 83, 90+)

Arsenal: 0

Gutted! It seems nothing is going for us. The result doesn’t tell the whole story. We should have had a penalty when the score was nil all and the match secured but the ref made a blunder. It was a clear foul on Vela but the ref booked him for diving. Braga then went on to score two goals on the break. Frankly, the second one should have been stopped.

As it stands we are level with Braga on points and the last group match is a must win for us if we want to qualify for the next round. We can forget top spot as Shakhtar have won their match today by a three goal margin and only need a draw in the last match.

I wont go into details of the match as there was nothing happening. None of the teams deserved to win today and a draw would have been a fair result. We dominated the possession but had no clear cut chances. Braga was mainly defensive and had a couple of chances in the second half but never looked like scoring.

I don’t know what happened out there but it has left me shell-shocked and a bit angry. The ref was a moron for sure. But we never helped ourselves out there.

We did lose the match but the bad thing is we have lost Fabregas and Eboue to injuries. Not a great day at all for us.

What to expect next!? Rant on!
