So the impossible dream is still alive and the Gunners now just have to go to Olympiakos and win by two clear goals to amazingly reach the Champions League knockout stages. It was strangely quiet in the stadium for most of the first half but Arsenal were dominant right from the off.
Stop worrying! Arsenal are fine! by Sam P
You would think Arsenal had lost their last five games if you listened to the ranting going on in Arsenal blogs over the last few days. The fact is that we totally dominated West Brom and the rub of the green was just against us on the day. Nine out of ten times we would have won that game if we played to that quality.
There is nothing but bad news and bad luck for Arsenal and their fans at the moment. The injuries are piling up, and now that Francis Coquelin and Mikel Arteta have joined the ranks of the walking wounded we really are down to the bare bones of the squad.
The latest injury news from Arsene Wenger is that the only player that he has available once more from the injury list is the Spanish right back Hector Bellerin, which is a handy boost as the Gunners head to the west midlands to take on Tony Pulis’ West Bromwich Albion.
So much for Arsenal fans hoping and praying to get most of our players back uninjured after the international break, and some of our currently injured ones to be returning to the squad, but Alas!, Arsene Wenger has burst our bubble today.
