The three points is a huge boost and a welcome one at that. When we went a goal behind and missed our usual 467 chances I had a horrible feeling it was going to be one of those days.
Alas for the Toffees it wasn't meant to be, they ended up well and truly chewed up and then spat out. It could have been a "sticky" situation for Arsenal had we not taken the three points today.
We weren't at our best in the first half but had the better chances to score. The Everton goal was poor defensively from Arsenal's point of view, who was tracking Leon Osman's run from the midfield?
Arsenal had an early scare in the second half but other than that we were immense in the second period. Le Boss must have had some stern words at the interval because the players came out like they had rockets up their arses!
One reason for this was due to the introduction of Theo Walcott, his pace and movement stretched a disciplined Everton side. I also couldn't understand why Eboue didn't start at right-back, Song is never a full-back and it was proved today.
Le-Boss does make some strange selection choices at times but the change at half-time was spot on. I do wonder though if Arsene would have actually made the change had it not been forced on him by Kolo Toure's injury? He isn't known for making changes at half-time and can sometimes leave substitutions a little too late meaning the sub hasn't enough time to make an impact.
My main gripe today though is why do we seem to start games at such a lethargic pace? I've seen snails move faster and Adebayor is the prime suspect. Look at the damage we did to Everton in the second half, we had too much for them. If we started games like that we could have the points in the bag at half-time. Why do we only seem to get going when we go a goal behind?
Keep it Goonerish.............
