While watching Aston Villa dismantle a lackluster Arsenal side yesterday at Emirates Stadium, the television panned on the crowd, settling on an attractive young lass, who turned to one of her compatriots and made it crystal clear she thought Arsenal were “rubbish”.
Sadly, I don’t think there is a Gooner who watched the match who would disagree. Some will complain about the referee, Mike Riley, and certainly he did not do Arsenal any favors, but the blame for this debacle lies squarely with the squad and their manager.
I have come to the conclusion that Bendtner is Danish for “clumsy oaf”, as the young forward did nothing to endear himself to the faithful. His first touch is bloody awful and for a big strong lad of his size, he gets muscled off the ball fairly easily. Once again, the center of our defense put the “woe” in woeful…but I’m not going to spend any more time dissecting our performance, as “rubbish” sums it up far more succinctly than I could.
