I did not get to watch the match, but was following it online. Caught the match highlights and it was nice to see Toure and Rosicky score. Rosicky and Walcott were the impact substitutions made by Wenger in a night when we badly needed to win against Bolton. With Liverpool getting luckier by the day and Man Utd winning another match by scoring 4 goals, we had to win and that we did.
Toure has been trying to score from a long ranger for some time now. I think the closest has been the crossbar-rattler against Sunderland. That was some hit. But this freekick was nicely placed low into the right side of the goalie. The movement of the ball(initially I thought it was deflected) must have taken it past the goalie. Nevertheless, Toure has had his first goal this season and I hope he has many more this season.
Walcott who has been criticised for his performance whenever he has played has been showing consistent improvement in the last two occasions he has come into play. Wenger has hinted that Walcott has a big chance of starting from the next game. Eboue has not performed as expected on the right. Theo’s assist and Rosicky’s cool flick on meant we can rest easy with another 3 points.
The real tough test comes from now on when we play Liverpool & Man Utd in the next couple of weeks. May the force be with the Gunners.
