What to make of this Arsenal team. Dropping points to the Stokes and Hull Citys of the world, yet managing to brush aside Chel$ki and ManUre fairly convincingly. Now, mind you, I don’t think anyone (myself included) at Maggie McGarrys, where I watched the match, if polled at the halftime, would have given the Gunners a shot a finishing on top.
And yet, some grit, some fight, and a bit of luck in the second half, and it’s 2-1 to the Arsenal. I watched the replays later and while odds are van Persie was offsides, I could not say conclusively that the ball didn’t come off Cashley Hole’s foot. What I can say without any equivocation, is that John Terry should have received a straight red for his two-footed tackle on Bacary Sagna. But such a thing might spin the English football globe off its axis.
So let’s take the indignity of that decision… and the points! We return you to our regular program, Which Arsenal Team Is It Anyway?
