I am happy with Arsenal after Bolton
February 2, 2012
I was not happy after Villa – Why? Cos minus 2 penalties and a fluke goal, we played average at best. We rarely created any real goalscoring opportunities from open play. I am never over enthused with Arsenal when we don’t actually play Wengerball.
When we get those slick passing triangles going, opening up a host of chances… I am at least assured that we can rip apart a team, any team, if RVP is on a going day and Theo has his confidence up.
Last night was not a going day for Robin, he created a wonderful chance for himself, early in the game, on the edge of the Bolton D, on his treasured left peg… but ballooned it well over.
Theo got a great one on one via a lovely incisive pass from The OX – he hit the target, he played to nutmeg the goalie.. goalie done very well.
OX is everything, and more, that we had hoped of him, he has that fearless quality that can kill a side on its own. When you have a player like that, you have to be positive. He could achieve all manner of things this month. A winner at the San Siro? A double at Anfield? Why not? Tell me… why not?
Anyway, my little blog is 3 years old today and it has achieved everything I had hoped it would…..a completely cataloged take on my honest views of the club during these turbulent years.
I had not envisaged no trophies in these years, but c’est la vie. What can you do?
I still totally Trust in Wenger (and give it till May and you will too)
