AZ 1-1 Arsenal: A draw might just do the team good in the long run

In Arsenal FC, Champions League 2009/10 on October 21, 2009 by Highbury N5 Editor

I didn’t get to see much of the game last night and I have hardly had a chance to sit down today and watch the full highlights so this blog may again be fairly short.

We drew 1-1 away at AZ Alkmaar of Holland but should really have won the game and closed it out, as it happens we conceded from yet another set piece and had to settle for a share of the spoils. In recent weeks we have smashed in goals from everywhere but this little setback might just stop complacency sneaking in. Away from home in the Champions League a draw is deemed a good result but what is important is that we learn from conceding that late goal and don’t let it happen again.

We will progress from the group easily enough, its not something I am worried about at all, Wenger is equally confident:

“We are still in a strong position. We have three games left, two at home, and I believe to win one game will qualify us. What I want is for us to continue to play like we do, focus to play better.

“In football, you have to produce the maximum result with your game, and tonight that did not happen.”

There were some shocks around Europe last night, Liverpool sunk to their 4th consecutive defeat which is pretty funny, they were at ‘fortress’ Anfield which is even funnier. Barcelona lost at home to the Russian champions too.

Apologies again for the briefness of this blog. Normal service shall be resumed shortly. Till next time.
