As I sat in disbelief, my mobile bleeping away with the taunts of Mancs a certain calm washed over me. We can’t highlight the howler at the end as the issue, Koscielny and Sczcesny didn’t lose us the game because we shouldn’t have been at 1:1 at that point.
In terms of fact, we lost 2:1 to a fortunate winner from the opportunistic Martins.
At the moment, I really have no idea how I feel about it. In terms of collective responsibility, Nasri, Song, Clichy, Sagna didn’t show enough yesterday and they just didn’t perform as they could.
Arshavin played well and consistently created chances in and around the box. RvP despite taking his chance extremely well didn’t set the final alight and I guess thats just the story of the day, too many players didn’t perform to their ability. In fairness to Brum they did really well and deserved it.
I will never forget the look on Cesc’s face when the goal went in. I’d love to know what he is thinking. Is it, “If I was playing we’d have won?” is it “What am I doing wasting time here?” certainly it was a great chance to win some silverware.
I’d love to have been a fly on the wall in the Arsenal dressing room after the game.
