Yesterdays result made me sick in more ways than one. Not only were we battered more than a sausage down my local chippy but I had to drink a pint of lager from a Chelsea dog bowl!
I don't have a habit of drinking Carling Extra Cold this way. Its a challenge a pal and I set-up last season before Arsenal beat Chelsea 2-1 at Stamford Bridge. That day my pal had to drink from an Arsenal dog bowl.
Unfortunately for me since that day, where I had the last laugh, I've had to down my lager from a Chelsea dog bowl three times and its fast becoming a liberty.
What has happened to the days when we could wear a blindfold and still beat Chelsea? They seem a distant memory. It's flipped reversed and yesterday was the perfect example.
We used to be like Chelsea. An immovable object that bulldozed everything in our path, all while playing attractive football too. We could mix it up when needed too. We were never bullied. Le-Grove tell of Chelsea's power and I make them right.
I hate to say it but Chelsea were incredible yesterday. To come to the Emirates and beat us 3-0 takes a lot of doing and they look unstoppable at the moment. I think we may have seen the Premiership champions.
Of course Arsenal are not out of the title race. Its far to early to dismiss us. Earlier in the season we came from international duty and lost two games in a row but then went on a very long unbeaten run. We've done the same again and we need a similar response.
I'm not giving up on Arsenal yet. I refuse too. Its a big ask for these players to catch Chelsea but we need to gain some of their characteristics, that never-say-die attitude.
I don't believe that Chelsea are better than us football wise. Although that does seem farcical after being beat 3-0 by them! They just want it more and and have an inner strength, a belief that they will beat whoever is put in front of them.
We shouldn't dwell on this now. Its over. Done. Lets forget the hiding, put it behind us and get behind the boys. I know its hard to do but they need a pick-me-up and we have to provide that.
Keep it Goonerish..............
