The painful days. By Galen Sona
Arsenal 0 v 2 Bayern Munich Champions league 2013
This was the round of 16 of the champions league. We started the game like a house on fire and we were all over Bayern in the first 15 mins. It was some great stuff from Arsenal. Why it hurts? Ozil misses a penalty then 15 mins later he is still shaking his head asking himself why why why? The great players just carry on playing. Then we got a red card and its game over.
Arsenal 1 v 2 Birmingham League Cup Final
A typical Arsenal game. A game Arsenal is supposed to win and you just know they will crack under pressure. We were just poor all game. Then Koscieny and Szczesny had that communication malfunction and gifted Martins a goal. Why it hurts? It was a final at Wembley and a great way to end our trophy drought. Seeing Wilshere cry was hard too. It’s as if only one player cared enough on the day.
AC Milan 4 v 0 Arsenal Champions league 2012
In typical Arsenal style we just crack up in every big game. We have seen this happen over and over again. In Gary Neville’s words “we prepare for big games like kids going to the Park”
Manchester United 8 v 2 Arsenal Premier league 2011
I don’t want to talk about this game.
Liverpool 5 v 1 Arsenal Premier league 2014
it was 4-0 within 20 minutes. Our players are meek and weak. Big players hiding in big games. We all know them. We were taken to the cleaners by Liverpool.
Chelsea 6 v 0 Arsenal Premier league 2014.
Another big game – another big fall. Oh it was Wenger’s 1000th game as Arsenal’s manager. Talk about Players letting their manager down time and time again.
Arsenal 1 v 3 Monaco Champions league 2015
How many times have we seen this Arsenal script. In a big game when we are suppose to win. What is Steve Bould’s job? Cause we just can’t defend to safe our lives.
Arsenal 0 v 2 West Ham Premier league 2015
Talk about cracking up under pressure. Our players are the most talkative. Every interview talks about how great they are and what a great team they have. But Paul Merson said ” Arsenal are the worst team under pressure”. When Arsenal has no pressure they win 10 games on a row. A little pressure and we are clueless.
Arsenal 1 v 2 Zagreb Champions league 2015
Yes everyone blamed Giroud in this game. They say Zagreb hasn’t won a Champions league game since 1999. Well Bayern showed us all how to beat a pub team.
Arsenal 2 v 3 Olympiakos
What a game of football. I don’t think I have ever seen anything like this before. You know what they say” when you score a goal you are most vulnerable”. Typical Arsenal display in a “must win game” . How many times have we seen this happening?
The funny thing about all this games is that the scripts are almost the same. Under pressure we are just a rubbish team. To think there were no players in the market to improve this team is just laughable. I don’t even want to talk about the window. I have written enough articles about the transfer window already.
Have a great weekend .
