Elstree\’s finest Arsenal blog

Arsenal 1 Newcastle 1

It started so well, The Bank of Friendship, pint of Directors, update picture of the North Bank – just the same as the Liverpool match, so much for superstition!!!!!!

What more can I say that hasn’t already been said? From my point of view we should have won, but we didn’t. Once again we dominated the play, having most of the possession, the majority of the shots, numerous corners, but walk away with a draw. The first half was just not good enough, Newcastle made one break, had one shot and scored one goal. Eboue, whilst great going forward looked vulnerable when defending, and this proved decisive when Dyer decided to put in some effort and run at the defence, Eboue backed off then invited him to curl the ball at will around a hapless captain Lehman.

The second half looked more promising with Arsenal clearly desparate to score, and this time it was Given that had to make a string of great saves to deny the gunners. Again, like against Everton we had to rely on a wonder strike, this time from Henry to get us back in the game. We continued to apply pressure making chances at will, but failing to have the killer instinct to win the game, we need more UGLY goals!!

I’m not going to go on, so here’s some nice pictures, including the ‘Perry Groves’ banner in the West stand Sounds like his book is a good read, and having heard him on Talk Sport this week, his humility is something to be admired, hope you were listening Cashley. As Perry said, he new it was the shirt that made him famous, and he felt privileged to have worn it.

Anyway, here’s to better things on Tuesday night, until then……………
