Norwich 1 - 1 Arsenal

Written by Administrator.



After a good start to the game Arsenal’s injury and November jinx struck. Is it bad luck or bad management? The easy answer to that would be a bit of both.

If it is due to bad luck the obvious question would be; why take risk with an as important player as Alexis knowing that he has hamstring problems before the game? Which points towards bad management than bad luck in my opinion.

WBA 2 - 1 Arsenal

A very bad day in the office for Arsenal. Not only the team looked sluggish after the international break but everything seemed to go against us starting with an injury to Coquelin early in the first half.

It can only be described as sod’s law as his replacement Arteta gave away a free kick which led to their equalizer. As that wasn’t bad enough he scored an own goal for their winner and rub salt into his and our wounds, he went off injured soon after the restart.

After a confidence draining encounter with Bayern Munich in the midweek this was a game we needed our big players to come up with goods:

Cazorla chose the wrong game to have one of his worst games for us. According to Wenger’s post-match interview he was feeling dizzy during the first half and had to be replaced during the break. My worry is that he played a similarly bad game in the midweek against Bayern Munich. Was he unwell that game too?

Although our big players looked a bit off color, there were still some positives to take from the first half; Campbell started very brightly looking like a player who was determined to take his last chance saloon opportunity. Scoring his first goal for Arsenal was the icing on the cake. Our defense looked very well balanced and secure. It was also very good to see this team can dig deep and be resilient when things do not happen.

Arsenal 2-1 Everton

Written by Administrator.



I liked this win as much as the massive wins against Manchester United and Bayern Munich. Against Everton our team proved that we can win hard fought games, aftermath of a very demanding champions League game and without firing in all cylinders.

A top goal keeper and a defence playing as well as I have seen since the famous 5 days is the reason behind it. We deserved to win this game but could have easily dropped points if it wasn’t for the brilliant save from Chec at a very crucial stage of the game. I also don’t think that there are any better full backs in the premiership than Monreal and Bellerin and Koscielny is just a beast of a defender.
