One thing is very clear about Arsenal they don’t do set pieces in fact they positively hate them! Everytime a ball floats in they are at panic stations and Allardyce needs to tell the boys at half time ping as many balls into their box as you can. Fantastic goal by Collison and up to their goal I thought we edged it!, I was panicking a little when they scored because I thought here we go but our defence is doing us proud. All of the back four are throwing themselves at everything and the Arsenal hords are struggling to break them down. HOLD FIRM MEN!
A few criticisms. Get Vaz Te off! I don’t know what it is with him but since he has been injured he is a different player a different person! Cant get anything remotely on target, dirty digs at players and getting a card for kicking a ball away what is he on!? Nolan yes Nolan again has totally gone missing except for arguing at the ref and giving free-kicks away. At the beginning of the season he was the fox-in-the-box, used to make a nuisance of himself in the penalty area but now you never see him there, his nuisance would really help us now Nolan where are ya!
Did Allardyce throw the match? It’s happened a few times before in cup competitions. Why would you leave Cole, Jarvis, Diame and Diarra on the bench?
