It is still a mystery how Arsenal lost to West Brom after being totally in control for the whole 90 minutes and having nearly three quarters of the possession. Anything that could go wrong did go wrong, and it seemed inevitable that Santi Cazorla would slip up when he took that penalty.
This has been a whirlwind season so far, not just for Arsenal but for all the so-called top clubs. But obviously we are only worried about our own club. We have our usual massive injury list but we should still have won yesterday’s game against West Brom. Although Theo Walcott has only scored twice this season, we seem to forget where the opponents goal is when he’s not playing and EVERYONE misses sitters.
Arsene Wenger seems to be quite stoic about Arsenal’s amazing defeat to West Brom yesterday afternoon, and he seems resigned to the fact that the Gunners just didn’t have a lot of luck during the game, which is quite true I guess.
I can’t imagine a worst day for Arsenal fans to return after the international break. The only plus was that Olivier Giroud scored yet again, but it wasn’t enough to stop us losing 2-1 to a typical Tony Pulis side, but it could have been so different.
Arsenal are preparing to face West Bromwich Albion tomorrow afternoon, and with the Baggies 12 points below the Gunners in the table we should expect to have an easy run out, but Arsene Wenger has made it clear that there is no room for complacency in any League game this season, especially against a team managed by Tony Pulis.
