FlyHigh, I hope you didn't drink yourself into a hospital bed after today's match. Shocking week for your boys!
Supremely frustrating game, I'll go on a short rant about my morning.
A) Had to return my rental car back to 30th street, hit some kind of cancer walk coming off 76, had took like 45 minutes to get through it, barely make it back by 11.
B) Come back and see that our starting 11 has Silvestre, Nasri at DM, Diaby at LM (I hate Diaby), Cesc at AM, and RvP at lone striker.
C) Drogba (I guess Wednesday's disgrace isn't enough) dives for FK, Silvestre watches as Alex wins the header, Fabianski thinks it's going over, off the crossbar and in.
D) Anelka gets away from Nasri (I like Nasri, but that's why you don't play him at DM), isn't closed down by Silvestre or Toure (no surprise), takes a shot that Fabianski should save but doesn't.
E) We forget how to play defense on the right, Theo beaten by Cashley Cole, Fabianski in no man's land, 3-0.
F) Bendtner scores, gives me hope.
G) Adebayor fluffs 2 easy chances and has a disgraceful dive on the 2nd one to boot.
H) Nice buildup from Chelsea against our non-existent midfield and porous backline. 4-1.
So yeah, it was a rough day. I mean, I'm not one of the Gooners who thinks we should win something every year, we're not a megaclub like the other 3 English clubs, Madrid/Barca, Bayern Munich, or any of the 3 Italian clubs.
I don't mind waiting 10 years if progress is being made. But when I saw that starting XI, I knew we were going to get tonked and so it passed. I love Wenger, club legend, but he has really lost the plot recently.
It's like watching your girlfriend who you are madly in love with slowly turn into a retard and you don't know what to do.
The best part about these last few years (it's only been 4 years without a trophy after all) is that a lot of the bandwagon fans are falling off the bandwagon, some guys on XT were saying stuff like, "this club don't deserve to be supported till they start winning again" which is pathetic. Arsenal are still a great club and I'm spoiled that I support them instead of a smaller club.
But at the same time, today was frustrating. I really don't like a lot of our players just from the personal standpoint.
EDIT: We did play well today for the most part to which is the most frustrating thing, Theo has been struggling for form recently.
