In the end it was the same score as last year, 5-2!
It started all wrong for Arsenal, with the spuds having a Gallas goal disallowed and then the visitors going ahead through an Adebayor goal. The initial period was dominated by Spurs no doubt but it would be wrong to construe that the scoreline would have remained the same way after 90 mins too.
Walcott had a great match where he once again showed why he was a better right sided player than a central striker. He was all over the right side of the opposition court. Santi Cazorla had one of his best matches where he was in control of all the moves that the gunners produced. Giroud and Podolski were also among the goals and Walcott and Cazorla also topped their performance with a goal each as Arsenal ended up with the same score as the last season’s fixture.
Hope this match will be a stepping stone for us and we maintain some kind of an unbeaten streak as matches are going to come thick and thin till the end of the year.
And just to touch upon the Walcott issue, Wenger has made it very clear that we won’t be selling Walcott in the January transfer window. I hope Theo realises that he is better suited in the right side role than a central role. And I wonder which club will hire him for a central striker role than asa winger. Looks like now it is not a matter of money any more.
