What a thoroughly entertaining game of football that was. Even Robbie Williams, the greatest entertainer known to mankind, had nothing on that.
The only thing missing was a pissed up Delia Smith coming onto the pitch and cooking a Sunday roast (on a Saturday) at half-time.
To be fair though Norwich City were roasted enough as it was and had Delia showed then she would have only overcooked them.
Sure City battled valiantly, but the score of 1-2 truly flattered them. I swear I do not exaggerate when I say Arsenal created enough chances to have won at least 6 or 7 games
If we continue to play, and create, like that, someone will get a bigger hiding than the one Joey Barton suffered at the hands of Gervinho when bitch-slapped earlier in the season.
At times we were a joy to watch. The football flowed like a river and not the one that Justin Timberlake cried about.
Theo Walcott, for all his doubters, put in the type of shift that proper wingers would be proud of.
He was marvellous and I haven't seen that type of performance from a winger in an Arsenal shirt since Glenn Helder in 1995.
Seriously though, and I mean seriously, Theo did everything we wanted and more today. Except score.
Walcott wasn't the only player had a decent performance either. There were so many candidates for man-of-the-match it was unreal.
I thought it could easily have gone to several Arsenal players. Or Delia Smith.
I said on Twitter (follow me @_Wrighty7) that I'd give it to Delia Smith for her 'lets be aving ya' chant in 2006, but I think in fairness the right man in RvP shaded it for his match-winning goals.
We have won 5 games in a row in the league now and still the commentators and Sky media continue to try and create some kind of crisis at Arsenal.
Alan Smith, a former Arsenal player, appears to knock the club at every chance possible and if the mute button hadn't of been invented I think I would head-butted my TV.
Not TV as in Thomas Vermaelen, because quite frankly I think he would knock me clean out, but my actual television.
Its a shame that most of the ex-Arsenal playing pundits seem to act this way but I will not let Smith take the gloss from a great win.
I have to add my support to Per Mertesacker as well.
Yes the giant German's mistake led to Norwich's goal, a mistake that could have cost us due to woeful finishing, but in the end it didn't matter.
Let's not jump on his back because;
A) We wouldn't reach
B) He will become an icon with the club.
Mark my words Per will become a hero with us one day. Of that I am sure.
Keep It Goonerish..........
