So we went to Stoke and got a point in what turned out to be a very enjoyable 0 – 0 to watch. Who’d have thought I’d be saying that about a game against the Orcs. Unbelievably there wasn’t one single yellow card., that must have been a first for a Stoke vs Arsenal game? The Stoke team seem to have improved their playing style, however, their fans are still cunts…. booing Ramsey everytime he got the ball.
We go back to the top of the table with some slightly easier games coming up which starts with the Chavs at the Emirates and then Southampton at home as well.
Without Ozil and Sanchez we still played a fairly good game but still too often losing possession easily. The Ox seems to be the biggest culprit but Ramsey made some bad passes as well yesterday, but they are minor criticisms in what was a very good team performance at a difficult ground for us.
It started off with us putting in some tasty tackles and for a while we were playing like a Stoke team under Pulis, but we gradually gained some control and in the end the result was a fair one.
It would have been good to see El Ninny play a few minutes at the end but perhaps a debut at the home of arsehole fans Wenger was wise not to play him. Perhaps the Egyptian will walk on the Emirates pitch against the Chavs.
Hopefully Ozil and Sanchez will be back in the team next week so we can give the Chavs a fucking pasteing. We did miss the creativity of the German yesterday and he could have made all the difference… but the poor fucker probably needed a day off. He’ll come back refreshed at the weekend.
It’s still looking good, though just two points from our last two games should have been at least four, but the title is still there for the taking and optimism is high amongst fans.
Need to get a few points in the next couple of games and if Man City and Leicester drop some, that would be even better.
I wonder if Wenger is still prowling around out there in the wilderness looking to buy another player… a striker preferably? Two weeks before the window is pulled closed so I have some hope that he may manage to get one more player.
I can’t wait for the next game…. I’m all excited!
