2 Points Lost or 1 Point Gained?

Arsenal vs Newcastle

4.50pm on Saturday the 05 February 2011. As a gooner my hair was being torn asunder. Phil Dowd had been called all the sins under the sun plus some that even I didn’ know existed or for that matter knew the meaning of!

The Mick McCarthy prayer Matt was rolled out and blessings and sacrifices made to the soccer gods. 2011 was all of a sudden taking an unnecessary, world against us, referee against us downturn.

Now, however, hindsight has kicked in. The 10p on Bet365 prospered a Wolves win. Torres saw what Liverpool can do and Phil Dowd’s ears I feel were burnt enough from Wilshere’s tweet.

Yes I still feel there were 2 harsh of harsh penalties, but hey if it were not for 2 harsh penalties in Arsenal’s favour the F.A. cup would have been buried in the annals of another close run thing and second best in the hunt for trophies. Diaby was sent off for retaliation, I can see that but Barton and Nolan’s tackling was atrocious but hey Vieira was no saint in the Arsenal Red.

We defended badly, but for only one of the goals (Tiote’s volley was that 1 in 30 that hits right – Saturday was that 1 – bugger) which shows how much Djourou’s new found consistency was missed. So 10 men including the ‘pace of a snail ‘Squillaci, 2 harsh penalties, some might say karma!!! I say ‘oh double bugger’. YET we gained a point on the league leaders, we are still in all 4 competitions, a club not in any debt and still have match time to fulfill all goals.

I feel it was a well earned draw…So fellows do you feel for Arsenal it is 2 points dropped or 1 point gained?

    Never been on your site before, but enjoy the write up. Wish more fans were like you, it’s not nice to throw away a 4 goal lead, but we didn’t lose and closed the gap on the leaders. Could have been better, but where’s the fun in making it easy for ourselves!

    I still have faith in the team, and confident we will do really well this season. At the start of the season, yet again we were being touted to not make the top 4, we are Man Utd’s main challengers in my eyes. Looking at our remaining fixtures, and our rivals remaining fixtures, I’m optimistic. We will lose games we shouldn’t, we’ll win games we shouldn’t, and on the last day of the season I hope we have a trophy!!

      Thanks for the compliment. I’m a fan who’s a realist and understands the swings and roundabouts of football. Can’t deal with ahters.
