We are more Jekyll and Hyde than the Doctor himself and I swear a few more of Arsene Wenger's hair strands visibly turned grey before my very eyes in the first five minutes tonight.
Have you ever seen that programme Stressed Eric? It's that cartoon about a middle-aged Englishman who gets very stressed out and his vein strangles him when he loses the plot. Wenger had that look about him. I honestly thought that he had a biro pen on his neck tonight. It was actually a throbbing vein.
That's what this Arsenal side can do to you. Stress you out. Badly.
I get stressed because I know that on it's day this Arsenal side can smash the shite out of any side in the whole entire stinking world. Yet on a bad day.......
Luckily for us we had the resolve to pull something out of the bag tonight. That's a good sign in my book. Okay we were two-bob for much of the game but we won. Had Manchester United, Chelsea or Liverpool won in similar fashion then we would hear how about the grit shown and how much character they have. Hopefully we hear the same for Arsenal.
Hand on heart I believe we can win things but only if we quit making the amateurish mistakes we continually commit. I'd say that we could have cut 90% of the goals conceded if we showed more concentration in our games this season.
Clearly this needs to be worked on. How do you improve concentration? Don't ask me but there has to be an expert in this field somewhere. Preferably a Gooner too.
Keep it Goonerish...............
