Timing is a hugely important factor in many things and professional sport is no exception. Arsenal have been on the right and wrong side of some examples of this over the years, such as the timing of David Ospina’s calanity in the Champions League this season which snatched the momentum form us and gave it straight back to Olympiacos just after Theo Walcott had given Arsenal a huge shot in the arm.
Us poor old Arsenal fans are quite used to seeing the Gunners having a bit of bad luck a few times a season, but last week’s game against West Brom really took the biscuit! Arsene Wenger described it perfectly: “It was a bad result – but on the day everything went against us,” Le Prof said. “They had one shot on target and scored two goals – that will not always happen.
Arsenal fans already have a great deal to thank these two former forwards for, with Thierry Henry and Dennis Bergkamp having played in almost 800 Arsenal games between them and scored well over 300 goals for the Gunners, picking up 17 winners medals in the process.
It is headlines like these that should make Arsenal fans worry. by Jansen
Arsenal confident that star man Alexis Sanchez can shake off hamstring injury ahead of weekend trip to Norwich
AUDIOPOST – Arsenal face Norwich on Sunday and Arsene Wenger has given a full injury update of his opinion on which players will be ready for the game.
