Well, having watched every team that has played Arsenal since the 50/50 game try, with the acquiessence of various referees, to kick the Gunners of the park, it would appear that the pattern for the rest of the season is set. And PSV followed suit tonight and got away with it! The only team inept enough not to've roughed us up successfully were the Scum! I suppose there's some consolation in that? What really hurts, other than JAR's ankles, is that football will be the loser in the end. Anyone who knows anything about soccer, and have seen how Arsene's men can play the game, have celebrated the heights that the sport has been elevated to in the last 12 months. ManUre's smash and grab at OT, and the cynical follow up in every game since, is like Ed Naughton's character, in Fight Club, destroying the face of the pretty boy of his organisation for no better reason other than pure spite! Do the neutrals want to see Chavski buy their way to the title or a ManUre side, that's lost it's way, kicking it's way to the title? I think they'd prefer to see the shear beauty of Arsenal in flight and I hope we can hold out against the current onslaught and prevail in a style that continues to make football worth watching. If we can stay with Chavski till the winter break (it is this year that it comes into affect?) then the boys will have a breather and a chance to regroup. Hopefully the worst of our injury problems will be over and, with the addition of a little new blood, we can get back to playing at a level that no one else comes close to! Hold on till Christmas lads and here's to a fresh run after the winter break!! Come on you Gunners!!!
