[VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS] Arsenal 1-2 Birmingham: Horrific Error Costs Gunners

By on February 27, 2011

Arsenal blew it big-time in the Carling Cup Final, losing 2-1 to Birmingham at Wembley this afternoon. City took a shock lead through the giant Zigic, who headed home from close range to make it 1-0. Arsenal drew level shortly before half-time with Van Persie scoring a superb volley. The Gunners couldn’t find another in the second half and in the 90th minute a mix up between Koscielny and Szsesny left the ball at the feet of sub Martins who had the easiest of tap-ins to secure a famous win for the Blues.

    Why is our goalie being blamed for the second goal? Goalie comes out to get the ball but Koscielny is already gearing up to clear the ball which is fine, if he goes through with it. But no he decides to pull back at the last second when our goalie thinks he’s clearing it. Bounces off the goalies chest when Koscielny should have cleared it and the rest is history.

    What I am worried about is Szczesny’s and Kos’s confidence now. And Arsenal’s confidence at a whole. Szczesny has been outstanding this season, and Kos was just about finding his feet.
    Well, lets hope we take the League now.

    Keeper is to be blamed. Not sure if he called, but going out definitely not a good idea, with defender chasing it, no direct danger, he should stay back, no opponent was chasing it, in case the defender miss kick, he had enough time to get the ball. The defender couldn’t see keeper is coming out, nor did the keeper made any call. Unfortunately, Arsenal has paid the price. Well, still a few more championship to work on this season, not the end of the world. Except, it’s really sad that it happened near the end of the game.
