This is what happened, when we visisted Birmingham City last time. We lost a match, Gallas lost it otherwise. And at the end of that season he also lost his captaincy. From a point where we could have gone 8 points clear of Manchester United, we won only 2 matches from the next 10. So that is how we stumbled from a league winning position.
This year we are again with a chance to put fight and keep the pressure on the Utds and Chelseas. Chelsea already have Carvalho out injured which means Alex will partner Terry. Central defence seems to be a problem with Arsenal too as Vermaelen is suspended for one match and Gallas is injured. So Campbell will partner Alexander Song in the centre as Wenger would not want to take any chances with the league run in.
I hope Arsenal continue the winning run, despite Bendtner’s absence.
Came across this very very interesting series in the Guardian. It is called“The Forgotten Story of…” It covers all sports but some of the footballing ones are marvellous reads. eg. The one called Danish Dynamite, about the Denmark side in the 1980’s, Real’s 107 goal season etc etc
