Good morning Sore Arses.
The sports back pages are full of Joe Allen the super-sub and how liverpool denied us. What utter bollocks… at the end of the game I expected Klopps flops to all hold hands and do a lap of honour in celebration.
We were robbed, we were clearly the better team and deserved all three points. It was gut wrenching to see that 90th minute goal because it was undeserved, Liverpool had been outplayed all over the pitch and rarely threatened.
Ok ok, a bit over the top, it was a scintillating game, going from end to end and ultimately, we gifted the point to the flops due to being unable to guard a lead. We missed a couple of good chances in the second half to put the game to bed and avoid that 90th minute Joe Allen goal.
The good news is that we remain top on goal difference and City only managed a draw against the Toffees. Leicester beat the Spervs which was great but does keep them on level points with the Arsenal.
We go to the Potteries next weekend after both Leicester and City have played on Saturday, which could see both temporarily move above us before our game on Sunday.
The Premier League is still wide open but we are in a good position to win it, one of our tough away games was yesterday and we came away with a point. Wenger announced after the game that El Ninny has signed so we’ve strengthened in midfield but we still desperately need another striker. Walcott was poor last night and the Ox did his usual of running with the ball until he was dispossessed. Giroud got two good goals and his away tally currently stands at 11 in 11 games. Ramsey is hitting some good form so let’s hope he stays injury free and we have Sanchez due back for the Stoke game, so looking good.
Finally, I want to make special mention of our two full-backs. They are phenominal, both Monreal and Bellerin are becoming the best defenders in the PL, if not the world. I sincerely hope we can hang on to them!
That’s it from me but just to let people know, I will not be commenting on the other blog anymore, for some obscure reason, I’ve been blocked by the administrators.
