Well we won, 3 points away from home. That keeps our interest in the top 4 for now.
I thought Lacazette played well and Mkhitaryan did well to say he has just missed 10 games. Iwobi was dangerous going forward but very disappointing once he got near the box. Koscielny was also very good and Monreal did little wrong.
Given our long injury list and those that we are told have been struck down with a bug I suppose a win is all that matters!
Or is it?
I mean seriously, is it really?
I’m sorry, but the football was horrid.
Let’s make on bones about it, Huddersfield are rooted at the bottom for a very good reason, they are a very poor PL team. Yet the had more shots. more shots on target and more possession. The only time we looked half decent was when the front three were breaking from our own half, with ball at feet. Our passing and decision making was woeful. I’ve not seen anyone mention it, but I thought Guendouzi had an absolute mare. AMN went from being a danger to them, to a danger to us at times.
Seriously, is a backs against the wall performance against Huddersfield where we are at now? Even taking all the absentees into account? Perhaps it is and I am just a curmudgeon.
The words of Jack Nicholson keep coming to me “what if this is as good as it gets?”
But hey, we won ! Imagine what I would be like if we had played like that and lost?
