So to start this post off, let’s have a little count to see if we all arrive at the same number. Ready, right then, how many teams are there in London?
Any match report from an Arsenal supporter after that game would and should be one long list of superlatives, so here you go.
Cech: Solid as a rock 10
Bellerin: Phenomenal 10
Mustafi: Vorsprung durch technik 10
Koscielny: Magnificent 10
Monreal: Brilliant 10
Coquelin: Hero 10
Cazorla: Outstanding 10
Ozil: God like 10
Iwobi: Sublime 10
Sanchez: Awesome 10
Walcott: Exceptional 10
Well that was fun.
OK, the thing is that anyone reading this obviously saw the game so instead of me trying to point out all the things that were special or might have gone unnoticed what I would like you to do is to point them out in the comments below.
For example: one of the things that I thought might have gone unnoticed is that for the first time the team stopped hoofing high balls up to Sanchez and instead only played to his feet, in other words that was the first time that the team played to Sanchez’ strengths rather than what was Giroud’s and surprise, surprise the result was one of the best performances we have seen from the Good Guys in recent years. Interestingly to me was that when the Frenchman did come on he looked completely out of place. I know, I know, this is not the time to start picking holes and furthermore I am sure that there will be times when his skill set will come in useful but any thoughts that Sanchez can’t play a number nine have now vanished from this Arsenal supporters mind.
Have the best Sunday you have had in ages.
