Arsenal rescuing defeat from the jaws of victory since 1889

Just finished the Arsenal game and best to pour it all out while it is still hot. How do you go from being 2 0 up then requiring an equaliser just to get a point from the game? That was a poor poor performance from Arsene and his boys more especially the boys, he has trusted them so much this season and they seem to do a good job of dropping him flat on his back each time. He needs to start thinking about who he lets remain in this team come next season. Haven’t the team been watching Leicester and how they grind out 1 0 wins? I can’t  imagine Leicester crumbling from 2 0 to 2 2 within minutes of half time.
Leading by 2 goals to nil  just before half time all Arsenal had to do was maintain a solid shape and focus on holding that  2 goal lead till half time, it’s called game management. I don’t understand what Bellerin was doing up the pitch at 2 0 with a few minutes to half time and Gabriel and Koscielny have shown again that they are poor readers of the game in how they marked Carroll. Carroll didn’t need a clown suit  with a giant red arrow on his back to know why Slavin put him in that line up. Before today’s game Carroll had scored just 4 goals just 4, against Arsenal he scores a hattrick!

I have been seriously slapped out of my hope of Arsenal going on to win the league, they typically displayed why they shouldn’t be champions because I definitely find it hard to see Leicester doing what they did today at upton park and in the manner in which they went about it.

Before I go and watch the 3pm kick offs I will say this the Koscielny Gabriel combo doesn’t work; they are both very fast players but poor readers of the game with very little cerebral input on the pitch and It’s time Wenger realises he needs a proper defender in the summer.

 

Grrrrrr breathe man breathe….
