Elstree\’s finest Arsenal blog

Passionless performance

Fulham 2 – Arsenal 1, quite possibly one of the worst performance I have watched in the 36 years of supporting The Gunners. Stood in the Putney satnd of an unusually full Craven Cottage, I witnessed an Arsenal team that was totally out played in all positions. This Arsenal team, lacks the grit and determination previously shown by the boys in red and white. Fulham out muscled Arsenal with only RVP, Kolo and Cesc showing the passion to get stuck in, chase the ball and close down.

This team needs a f..ing rocket up their arses if they are going  to save an embarassing performance against S***s. Henry needs to show he is a leader, its not good enough holding your hands up in disgust when passses aren’t inch perfect and looking for help from the refs every time an opponent gets within a yard of him, Thiery show us you care………….

It’s impossible as a true Gooner to critisisze anything that Arsene does, however I have to question his judgement with Song, in every match I have seen him he has singularly failed to impress, with cheeers of we want Cesc Fabregas ringing around the Putney end. I’m clearly not the only one that doesn’t rate this 19 year old. Flamini looked very out of place at left back, and has to take responsibility in both of the Fulham goals.

I’m the first to love the gunners flowing football, that’s a true spectacle to watch when things are going well, but when things aren’t we need guts, strength and passion, Adams, Dixon, Bould, Winterburn, Keone, Wright et al. Is it a surprise that all these guys are English? We need some of the bull dog spirit back in this side. Fulham are a sh*t team, that totally taught us a lesson in team work, passion and commitment.

I can’t say any more, I’m totally disgusted. Until Saturday.

  1. Hi Elstree Gooner,

    lets hope we turn it around against Spuds.

    Dreading and looking forward to tomorrow’s game in equal measure. We need the points and we need to shut the scum up or we’ll never hear the end of it.

    Bloody early start is going to be a nightmare. I gotta get up soon!

    Cool site, mate will be coming back!
