Men against Boys: Last night showed why we are fourth, and why United are world champions

In Arsenal FC, Champions League 2008/09 on May 6, 2009 by Highbury N5 Editor

I think last night has shown Arsene and ourselves that this youth project has not worked as fast as planned. Arsenal were simply helpless and totally and utterly outclassed.

This is going to be short and sweet because I need to mull everything over and not make rash comments, at one point I’ve gone as far to say that a summer clear-out is needed. Maybe tomorrow I won’t be so strong in that view but i don’t want to be a hypocrite.

I would just like to say well done Samir Nasri, you were outstanding, same goes for you Mr Alex Song. You have won me over.

Sagna, Toure, Djourou, Fabregas, Walcott, Adebayor and van Persie were awful. Where was the desire to fight?

One last note: Kieran Gibbs – I really, really, really hope that slip doesn’t shatter his confidence. Hopefully he will be a winner one day.

Let me mull this one over.

’til tomorrow Gooners.

Im Arsenal til i die, i’m Arsenal til i die, i know i am, im sure i am, i’m Arsenal til i die.

  1. Song – improved immensely over the last 3 months. PLayed really well in the first leg. But last night, he was useless. He did not shield the defence well, and was not a good part of our attacking play. Having said that their goals came from a slip, a quesitonable free kick/goalie mistake, and a blistering counterattack.

    We ruled the game at the start. Arsenal had come to play. Unfortunately that slip sent it all downhill. I even think that Almunia couldnt believe the first goal and his goalkeeping suffered at Ronaldo’s free kick – he was shellshocked.

    I hope Cesc comes back next year, strong and hungry. Because despite a long injury he has been quite poor throughout the season. Probably needs Flamini, Hleb and Rosicky with him to make him a more complete player.


    puts things into perspective really..
