Have that Phil Brown. Have that right in your fake-tanned, frazzled, oompa loompa face! Did you see him? Trying to header an imaginary ball? Twat!
Sorry, rant over. I just don't like Phil Brown.
What a crucial win that was. After seeing Manchester United lose, and lose quite heavily, Spurs, Villa and Manchester City win, that was a very pleasing three points to earn.
The pressure was on the boys and they responded. It shows character and maybe in the past we haven't showed that kind of character often enough. We did it last week when results went our way but then flopped against Burnley so we do have it. We just need to show it more.
Speaking of character I was very impressed by the fight in the match. Now don't for one second believe that I am a hooligan who loves to watch a brawl. That's only on a Tuesday. I was impressed by the way the players stuck together and really looked after each other.
Now, Nasri proved himself to be a right little git by stamping on that Hull City players foot but the way he went down was embarrassing wasn't it? It was like a sniper from row Z took him out. I swear if someone in my Sunday or Saturday football team went down like that we'd have left him there.
What followed gave me a little happy feeling in my stomach. Hull players larged it, especially that midget Hunt and former Spud Barmby, but the Arsenal players responded and immediately raced in to stick up for their pal Nasri. The melee that followed was hand-bags really and it continued down the tunnel at half-time.
Now you may say Wrighty, you are out of line here, how can you give the thumbs up to that kind of behaviour? There were kids watching. My reason? It's because we have been accused of being softies and it showed that we have a lot of fight in the team. It proves that we have players willing to defend each other and stick together.
It's times like this when you know who your mates are and this whole Arsenal team proved to each other that they have got each others backs. How quick was Silvestre to race in? That's good stuff. He has his critics but I think people have a stubborn on view on Silvestre. Le-Grove think so too. And I agree with them that he had a very good game yesterday. I also agree that this game in hand has become a farce. It was cancelled in August for Jebus Christ.
So we were written off by almost everyone and in truth we have always been right bang in the mixer. What can annoy me is that it's only December and people are quick to write us off. Even Gooners do it.
Of course I can understand the frustration at times and it seems a little silly to say be patient because we have been for five years now! But we have to believe we can win the title. I do. If we can create that feeling throughout everyone then we have a fantastic chance.
Get that feeling spread around and it will show through to the players. Then maybe they will believe even more too. The fight we showed yesterday proves to me this squad have the bollocks, lets show some bollocks too and get right behind them.
Keep it Goonerish....................
