All Gooners of the world must have had one of their worst Sunday nights ever, seeing old foes United thumping 3 goals and dominating the Gunners as if there was no tomorrow. We played very badly and United team showed the desire and hunger to win and take all the three points. No one showed that attitude more than Wayne Rooney, especially the way he ran from close to the United box till the Arsenal one and finished a first time shot placing it past Almunia.
Arsenal never looked like coming back and threatening the United goal that convincingly. Arshavin missed a host of chances to score as well as pass to his teammates who were in better position. Clichy has not yet got to the best of his fitness, which shows in the way he has been dominated by opposition players. Denilson is another played who has come in for a lot of criticism. With Song performing the way he has been doing this year I wonder if we are seeing the demise of the Brazilian. Goal keeping has been an outstanding problem for some time. Maybe Wenger needs to buy a good established keeper to replace Almunia. And where is the forward who is going to get us the goals in Van Persie’s absence? Bendtner does not seem to control the ball well, what do we expect from him other than getting back to complete fitness and winning the aerial challenges. But is he going to lead this team from the front? Then we need to get our eyes checked.
Next up is Chelsea and it definitely is not a easy match with the blues not having a lost for a long long time at Stamford Bridge. Even if we by luck win against Chelsea and Liverpool, we won’t become favourites to win the league. Lets admit it we are only the 3rd best team in this league and yes there is still some way to go. I am really scared of our challenge in Champions League now. We might beat our next opponents but what after that. Wenger has taken a big risk by fielding a weak team in the FA cup and not buying the January transfer window. It needs to be seen how things pan out for the rest of the season.
