Joe hart manchester city

Arsenal played out a 0-0 draw with Manchester City last night at the Emirates thus rendering their opponents neighbours extremely pleased. The gunners did hit the post twice, and if it was not for some fantastic keeping by Joe Hart the Gunners could have collected all points.

The game started with a quick tempo with Song pressing from midfield. The first chance came in the 1st min when Nasri picked up the ball from midfield and passed it to Jack on the right. On receiving the ball JW shot across goal but unfortunately RVP couldn’t latch on to the ball.

In simple words, it was a vibrant start to the game. One end to the another, and completely open. In the 8th min RVP low left shoot shot hit the post after the dutch-man showed some great skill. The cries of ‘Arsenal, Arsenal’ succeeded the dutch-man shot. One minute later, after a lot of fumbling in the box Jack fired a weak shot straight at Hart via a Fabregas assist.

By the 10th min the game started to become sober which both sides holding a decent amount of position. In the 23rd min Jack played Theo a ball from the middle of the field, the Englishman made a wonderful turn thus allowing him some free space to take a shot- It was just a fraction wide.

4 mins later Nasri gave a sweet lay-off to Cesc whose low hard drive left Hart dumbstruck as he saw the ball hit his right post. In the 38th min, RVP fired one of his classic left footers straight at Hart. In the 53rd min, a 1-2 from Cesc and Theo forced Zabaleta to give a corner. However it just resulted in RVP taking a wild shot which troubled nobody!

By the 56th min, we had all the play and no goals, something really pissing off! On the hour mark RVP shot a screamer but Hart did well to save. In the 73rd min RVP tried to head an Arshavin cross in the path of Cesc but Hart was quick to collect.

After that we did have a lot of possession but couldn’t do much to trouble City. The game thus ended with the crowd shouting ” Boring, Boring City” just after both – Sagna and Zabaleta got foolishly sent off. Nothing to choose between the 2 teams…I mean how can you choose a winner when one team decides to defend and do nothing else!

Cheers,

    Arsenal think they are the Barcelona of the Premier League. If they were they would have won. They didn’t because their forwards aren’t good enough and City’s defence very resolute. If the goals were on the sidelines Arsenal would have got a bagful. City found it tough but did prove that with 11 men on the field Arsenal haven’t got what it takes

    Rather than being subjective, we should be more objective in our analysis. Yes, it is true that we’re fans of different clubs, but it is good and necessary for us to watch matches with an open mind and enjoy ourselves, otherwise we shall develope heart attack and die or transfer our bitterness to our love ones. If we had paid attention to all that happened on the pitch, we would have seen RVP and Kolo Ture having a friendly chat after first half of the match, even after the match, they all had a hand shake.

    However, Arsenal was better, but were unlucky for not have scored goals.

    The way Man City defended was similar to Inter Milan in the Champions League Final last year against Barcelona without the ability of the creativity to try and score a goal. If top class defenders organise and defend deep as they did after the first 10 minutes it is nearly impossible to break them down as Man Utd also found at Eastlands.
