Welcome to the GunnersoreArse Blog. Being blogged 918.74 kilometers (in a straight line) from the Emirates stadium.
Someone obviously did some arse kicking after the damp performance against Dortmond, there can’t be any other explanation. I didn’t get to see the match but have seen the replays of the goals, Welbeck and Ozil combining well together and Ozil playing how he has always promised, interesting that it was in central midfield and not on the wing. Perhaps the start of a productive period for the German and more good stuff to come from Danny boy. An interesting turn of events is Sanchez being kept on the bench and Podolski coming on instead for the last twelve minutes.
However, it was worrying not to see a defender on the bench, showing how thin we are in that department, one more injury or suspension with our back four and we will be in serious trouble. But the win yesterday should go a long way to instilling some much needed confidence in the team. A good result last weekend against City, where we could quite easily have got the three points and a superb performance yesterday but unfortunately a disappointing game sandwiched between the two in Germany. Our first clean sheet this season and we, along with Chelsea are now the only unbeaten teams in the Premier League, with the Chavs having their first serious test against City this afternoon.
Then it’s on to Tuesday for the Capital One Cup game against Southampton where I would imagine quite a few of the first team will be rested in preparation for giving the Spuds a good spanking next weekend. Not the brightest start so far to the season but many positives and promise of better to come.
Right, time for a glass of wine and some spicy Chorizo….. hope you enjoyed your visit. Until the next time.
