Elstree\’s finest Arsenal blog

Are you watching cAshley Cole??????

Today we saw Arsenal secure their first victory at The Grove, a 3 Nil win over a laclustre Sheffield United. The first half, was played for 43 minutes in the Sheffield half, with a frustrated Arsenal tem unable to produce the vital strike. Sheffield hoofed the ball into the Arsenal half a number of times, and didn’t even bother to follow up, so set were they on staying behind the ball, a scare just before the half time whistle saw the ball in the back of the net, only to be dissallowed for a foot up foul on Johan Djourou. The hals ended with Arsenal still failing to have scored at the South/Clock, whatever end.

The second half, saw a more aggresive Arsenal, uping the tempo and pushing a vertically challenged Sheffield to their limits, surely the goal wasn’t far away? It took 64 minutes to produce the first goal, and we were treated to a goal from our new left back, Billy Gallas. A rousing chorus rang around the Emirates….”are you watching Ashley Cole?”, it took just 3 home games for Gallas to make his mark, towering in defence, he proved today he is equally impressive in the oppositions box, and the bank of Chelski gave us £5 million to take him, a good deal me thinks. We had to wait a further 4 minutes for the second, and 10 minutes from time saw Henry get his first open play goal, a simple header after a great cross from Eboue.

What does need to be discussed, is should we have taken the £30m for Henry, on today’s performance it should have been a no brainer. TT’s control was poor, his delivery worse and he looked once again that he cared less.  To finish on a positive note we need Henry to openly show the passion and hunger of ‘The Beast’, the drive and determination of Rosicky and the comitment of Gallas, all new boys, come on Thiery show the fans you care………….
