Hard-to-accept defeat but Arsenal showed spirit with 10 men

It was business as usual when Chelsea came to the Emirates yesterday as our local rivals yet again took the points and stopped Arsenal from scoring. We were outdone as soon as the 20th minute when we had to struggle from a man down and a goal down, but the team fought like lions and even tried to get an equalizer.

Arsenal’s bad defending and subs leave me disappointed…

Arsenal paid the price for being too passive and suicidal defending‏ by KM

Hello fellow Gooners. I am highly disappointed with the fact we threw away the lead and I cannot accept the fact we did far too many defensive changes and we were hoping to just roll over the finishing line and with the way we defended we were punished. This almost happened against City, but we had a two goal lead there which saved us.

BFG – Liverpool deserved the draw and Arsenal will take the point

Whatever else you could say about last night’s game between Liverpool and Arsenal, you could never say it was boring! It was gung-ho end-to-end stuff that is usually described as ‘a great advert for Premiership football’ although I personally would have preferred a boring 1-0 win for the Gunners!

Wenger looks at positives after frustrating Liverpool draw

Arsenal were undone by a late Liverpool equalizer through Joe Allen after coming from behind twice at Anfield last night, but with Man City also being held to a draw the Gunners haven’t lost much in the race for the title. Although our failure to hold on the lead could be considered to be two points lost, Arsene Wenger thinks that the team must only be looking at the positives from the night.

Southampton were stronger but the ref gave them the game

So Arsenal still can’t beat Southampton at St Marys, despite our opponents being without a win in six games going into the match. With Leicester being soundly beaten earlier in the day, the Gunners could have ended the day on top of the pile, but now we stay 2 points behind the Foxes and now just one ahead of Man City.

Changing tactics has taken Arsenal to the next level…..

Last season Arsenal surprised everyone by going to Manchester City in January and destroying the Citizens 2-0 on their home turf, which showed a signal change in the Gunners previous form of always losing to title rivals whenever they met. There were many rumours after the game that the players had called a meeting to discuss the tactics at the Etihad and they had decided to concede possession, defend strongly, and hit our opponents on the counter-attack.
