I want to write a positive blog!
I want to describe some beautiful football!
I want to be enthusiastic about Arsenal!
I want to enjoy our football!
Sadly, I’m unable to do any of these things.
That was 95 minutes of tripe. We won the game courtesy of a well executed headed goal from David Luiz and also courtesy of them defending the corner badly.
Two shots on target ,at home, against Bournemouth? That can’t be acceptable, no matter how healthy our league position is.
We have played 8 PL games and not played well in any of them. In fact I would go as far as to say we have played poorly in them all. That we are where we are in the league, is testament to how good our players are despite how they are being forced to play.
We can be very happy at the 3 points gained, content with our league position, but I defy anyone to say we should be happy with the excruciatingly poor football being churned out week after week.
People will say “judge it in May”, well I did, I judged the crap we were served up last May, and if anything it’s gotten worse. If you dare look beyond the points total, what looks back is a football team that lacks the ability to play entertaining attacking football. There are those that don’t want to look beyond, those that would rather not see, to them I say “You‘re a better man than I am, Gunga Din.”
