Arsenal bounced back from 3 league defeats on the trot with a 7-1 hammering of Blackburn at the Emirates Stadium. This result came as a much-needed surprise after some fans had said that they would skip the game, and that empty seats would be covered with rubbish bags. Fortunately, there wasn’t any seat covered like that, and most Gooners enjoyed a pleasant view of the Arsenal going about their stuff.
Another game where at the very end, Arsenal is clamouring and struggling to get a draw or a win. In this case, a draw.
I am so distraught about this latest result that I am not able to write a full length post. Below is a gathering of assorted thoughts, questions, and statements that are just floating around in my mind. Reply to them as you please.
1. I believe there is a serious and festering problem with Arsenals organizational skills on the pitch…
2. Is the coaching staff to blame?
Ohkay, I didn’t just eat humble pie, it was thrown at my face. Before the match, I had said that we wouldn’t concede from open play, and that turned out well enough, didn’t it?!
2 of our new signings got their first competitive goals for the club, with Gervinho and Arteta putting Arsenal 2-1 up at half-time after Yakubu had scored in between. Both were excellent goals too, in my opinion, and showed Song at his best, playing in the balls which got us through their close-knit defense. At half-time, my mood was great, and I even made a bowl of macaroni, planning to sit back and enjoy watching the Arsenal.
Nah, actually, Arsenal isn’t all just tippy-tappy. Remember, Walcott ripped apart the sidenet with that strike last year….
So, Arsenal finally travel to one of the more physical teams of the lot, and we will finally get a chance to see exactly why Mertesacker was bought in. It is important that he takes care of Samba, who has decided to make it living hell for us. Well, we’ll just have to see about that!
Tomorrow’s game between Arsenal and Blackburn Rovers is another chance for the Gunners to build momentum and confidence as they look to put their season back on track after a dismal start.
Blackburn are stuck at the bottom of the Premier League and haven’t won any of their Premier League games this season. Arsenal only won their last game, against Swansea, but are slowly looking more confident after they qualified for the group stages for the Champions League and put on a good performance against Dortmund this week.
Blackburn Rovers – Arsenal betting tips. Arsenal is a sure winner.
Arsenal will travel to Blackburn to meet the home team in what is expected to be a sure win for The Gunners. Despite the problems Arsenal had at the beginning of the season, the team seems to have bounced back from that and they will surely defeat the Rovers.
Arsenal has a 1.9 odd of winning on Saturday against Blackburn, and I think that is the best odds that somebody could hope for in a game like that. The betting firm’s are still afraid of Arsenal’s inconsistency, that’s why the odds are so big. But if we only take into consideration the last two games the Gunners are doing great at the moment.
