Le Arse!


Where should I start. I've been away on a li'l break which is why I didn't get a chance to update this (sorry). A couple of good wins against the spurs and Bolton and then the double barrel against the Arse. Despite the results in those games I don't think its all doom and gloom. The FA Cup game, we didn't actually play that bad, it was down to two defensive errors really (the 2nd and 3rd goals). The difference between us and Arsenal, from what we've seen this last week, is that despite creating chances and half chances, we've failed to put em in the back of the net. On the other hand, Arsenal created 3 chances and scored all of them on Saturday and created 7 and scored 6 on the Tuesday.

The only problem I have though is that I would've played Bellamy instead of Crouch on Saturday. The carling cup game was almost surreal though. Rafa was right to rest the key stars (we've lost Garcia, Momo and Gonzalez thanks to the Carling Cup) as that really should'nt be a priority. We need to keep everyone fit for Barca (We'll miss Garcia) and the rest of the premiership campaign. I know its a trophy and all but what would you rather have? a 2nd/3rd position finish in the league or a 5th position + the carling cup trophy? Infact, reading
Rafa's interview yesterday I've gotta say the man's spot on. Its rare to see him come out and be blunt about it but some of the reactions in the press and from fans / pundits have been over the top this week.
