Walaaan! Just bloody shooot la!!

Just came back from Liz. Most of the boys were there; Kev, Daniel, Shai, Hassan, Allen, Gooner4ever, Ashley, and many more. Daniel brought his friends from France along, hope they had a good time there.

Sigh.. Arsenal ended the match 1-1, and only after Boro were down to 10 men. Most times the people at the pub were just shouting for the Gunners to take a shot at goal.

The Gunners are many times accused of trying to "walk" the ball into the opposition's net. Although this time they weren't doing anything fancy in front of goal, they also left it too late to take any meaningful shots. By the time they start thinking of shooting, 10 men are already standing in front of the Boro goal defending!!

And why didn't they send in Theo?? Yes, he's no big time signing from Chel$ski or Real Madrid, but I feel things always happen when he has the ball. To start with Gallas I understand, but to send in Baptista - a newbie, when we needed a win badly?? I felt this was not a good time to "display" our new signing Baptista, not when he's not familiar with the team, with the English game, even the English language itself. Sigh..

Well, all I can say is that it's very heng that we managed a draw against 10 men Boro.

Not many matches will turn out so lucky...
