I'm sure the smart advice from seasoned bloggers after a match like that is to wait before you put your thoughts out there for all to see but I'm new to this. The other thing is my thoughts won't be radical and full of blood lust but those of a fan who can see what's wrong and hopes it can be fixed. Stop me if I state the bleedin' obvious!
It is hard to judge this team as it's not our first team. Having said that, any team 2-0 up with less than 10 minutes to go have to fall to quite low depths of crapness to even draw let alone lose. If ever there was a better example of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory I'm not sure i know when it happened.
I hate using injuries as an excuse but it's all we've got. One area where we don't have injuries is in the goalkeeper department. Unfortunately they have been struck down with a bad dose of crapitis. Today our first choice, who should be our second choice, was dropped for our third choice with some people shouting for our forth choice to be our first. If anything positive comes out of today it will be a shiny new goalie full of confidence who can catch a ball. I'm so depressed by our goalkeepers anyone with a working set of gloves will do for me.
Almunia clearly had been dropped today to see what Flapianski could do and he fluffed his lines big time and proved to us all his nickname is well deserved.
I think the boy on loan who's name I'm not even going to try should be moved to reserve with an new man coming in. Manuel Faulty and Flapianski should be thanked, given a voucher for the club shop and moved on. Enough is enough.
I don't have the energy after that to talk about the rest of the team although I thought Eastmont did OK for such a young man and my Twitter about giving Silvestre another 3 years after his goal was a JOKE!
We now need to get to the end of the season the best we can. Man City and Blackburn won't be easy while I'm starting to hope Fulham get to the UEFA cup final so they go easy on us.
Chins up Gooners. The first date of Silvestre's farewell tour was off key but progress has been made, we can't see injuries this bad again (can we?) and there is money in the kitty. August can't come quickly enough!!
