Arsenal are awful, but Arsene Wenger can blame only himself for that.
The team had two glaring weaknesses following last season: a world class goalkeeper worthy of a deep Champions League run and a high quality striker to play with or in place of Van Persie when he would inevitably get hurt. Arsene chose to address neither, which brings us to today. At least he can take solace in the fact that Arsenal has a balanced budget, but next year Cesc will be gone to a Barcelona team that will be broke but winning, and Arsenal will still be without a trophy.
Herculez Gomez with Pachuca’s 3rd goal
I m pretty sure arsenal gonna win….
Boca’s Saint-Etienne just won at Lyon for the first time since 1993. Boca went 90. They are still top of Ligue 1.
well taken, one touch shot. Good for him and what I would expect from MB with no defender in sight.
Maybe because the truth is bitter and Dempsey is not playing to the standard expected?
to be honest, Fulham should have won today. Yes I’m glad we’re unbeaten, but look we have one of the best defenses in the league but our attack just doesn’t have the quality to win games without Zamora and Dembele.
Yes Dempsey, Gera, Davies will grab a game winner now and again but none of these guys are really strikers and they can’t do that consistently.
Ej was ok, not good. Fulham really need Dembele back, Dembele and Dempsey will make a good pairing.
Very frustrating for Fulham fans to have that great partnership of Dembele and Zamora and of course they both get injured.
how is that weird, Liverpool have been struggling since last year. Spurs are the most overrated team in the Premier League. I’ll admit the Arsenal result is shocking
I bet he gets called up for the October USMNT games.
Since Bradley has been criticized for being overly right footed and the person scoring it was left footed obviuosly there was a ringer in for him today.
how was bradley’s goal?
liverpool struggling is strange? thought that was the norm nowadays.
