Monday Football Thoughts

So the perceived obvious win against West Brom didn't happen thanks to the commitment of Almunia, so instead we have to settle for a 2-2 draw... The sheer comic nature of West Brom's second goal where Almunia for some reason decided to rush out of his goal, push Squillaci out of the way, leaving the West Brom striker an open goal and make it extremely difficult for Arsenal to make a come back...

Luckily Arshavin/Alexandr Orlov and Van P managed to pull us two goals back. It's becoming increasingly frustrating to watch this team play and consistently self-implode. We may have a game in hand and some might argue an easier run in, yet with a defence that is as likely to kick itself in the head rather than kick the ball away, a title challenge feels a bit beyond us at the moment...

The Champions league draw poses a few interesting ties... Spurs vs Real M will give the overly confident Spurs a real test in a way that the steadily ageing Milan team could not... Man Utd vs Chelsea of course will be a cracker, will Torres score? will Terry be once again brought to tears? will Berbatov actually run for the ball? i'm sure whatever the result it will be worth a watch...

There's plenty more football news floating around but I'm sure a more comprehensive blog/website will have covered it better. Instead I'll leave you with the genius that is Mario Balotelli vs Bib (you've probably seen it but it's worth watching again and again...)
