In this season of up the ladder and fdown the snake Arsenal gained three points against Bolton. The game itself fell into the ‘nothing to write home about’ category but was a welcome win featuring that much mentioned clean sheet. Certainly current aspiration points to victories against our peers, and at the moment teams like Bolton fall into that category. Only by being competitive against the supposed lesser teams can we find a way back against the better teams.
The game did feature some good goals amid the mundanity, and therefore I expected very little from MOTD and, as usual, very little is what was delivered. Hansen & Lawrenson are decades behind the current footballing world and MOTD is nothing more than an institution. Ill informed, biased and dull punditry prevails on this dinosaur of a show.
The road to recovery for The Arsenal continues with games Wednesday and Sunday. The trip to Looting Lane should be interesting as Sp*rs will genuinely feel that they can take something out of the game. Having said that we should be under no illusions that games like this are part and parcel of a competitive middling group of teams fixtures.
It will be interesting to see how some of our newer recruits perform in the Tottenham Cup Final
