Arsenal destroys Liverpool, 3-0. Flamini! Toure! Gallas!

Flamini! Toure! Gallas! The goalscorers for the Gunners!!! Henry the best defender!!! This was Gunners football at it’s best, free flowing, one touch, and best of all putting away the chances that they got. Total football as practiced by the great Dutch teams of the ’70′s.
The best moment. Hleb breaks down the Pools defense on the right with some great footwork, passes to Fabregas whose cross into the box, a bit behind, saw a reacting Flamini catch up to the ball with his trailing right leg, and tap it past Reina. An elated Flamini races to a group of Arsenal fans, pumps his hands into the air, hugs them, turns around and is mobbed by his team mates. The result, a yellow card for Flamini, for over the top celebration. It could not get better than this.
The Gunners decimated a hapless Scousers side as Van Persie became provider for Kolo Toure’s goal early in the second half. The drubbing was complete when Van Persie’s cross was headed home by an unmarked Gallas. In between, Thierry Henry provided a clinic on how to defend the Liverpool strikers as Crouch, Gonzalez, and Alonso were stripped of the ball regularly.
Liverpool played listlessly and without any clear direction. Benitez again tinkered with Crouch’s partner up front sending in Manuel Gonzalez, who played horribly. Gerrard was strangely missing and even more so his captaincy. Riise and Gerrard were caught on camera jawing at each other. Liverpool continued its futile streak away from home again failing to score. They have lost all their away games except for a draw against Sheffield Utd.
When Arsenal plays like this, it makes Chelsea and Manchester United who are presently ahead of them in the table, flatfooted and one-dimensional. This is a team that presently does not have Rosicky, Ljungberg, and Baptista, amongst the players who see significant minutes for the Gunners, lost due to injury.
Arsenal is the best team and Wenger is a wizard. I hope this game proved it to all the naysayers.

  1. i agree with all that u said. arsenal r the best without doubt, but when teams just defend against us, we have problems. also wat a miss by adebor!!! he needs to work with henry on how to finish with proficiency.

  3. I agree in that I hope this game proves all those doubters wrong, I just hope it doesnt bring them crawling back. If we get a dodgy result away at Bolton next week I dont want to have to sift through pages of ‘fans’ comments on how Henry should be dropped or Toure should be captain jus so I can get a match report. Maybe a bit of unity in its fanbase is what Arsenal are really lacking at the moment.

  4. hey, we’re not the best team, man u are, or pos chelsea. I was there toda and at west ahm last week to be honest the performances were little differnet other than we scored first. In the first half did you htink we actually looked like scoring before we did? Then we scored from an unlikely source and then from a free header 6 yards out from a set piece, we’re sstill not good 3nough to win the title unfortunately, last week was a tough game, but a game the top two may have won but certainly not lost.

  5. what i hope some folk will sit up and take notice of is van persie’s set ups. The guy has been lambasted of late, had it said of him that he cannot adapt to being a complete player. What we saw from him today (in a microcosm of that 2nd goal) was a superb example of awareness to get the ball, hold it, check back, lok up, and play a great yet simple ball through to toure, who finished with aplomb. Let’s, though not above all, appreciate the fact that the guy has, in this movement, showed that he continues to evolve and improve, and this shows that he can adapt and hopefully improve toward the player all gooners know he can become – an all-round, complete, centre forward, aware of his felllow team-mates and capable of playing them in, something he has been criticised of lacking the wherewithall to to absorb. This is not the whole story of thr game, of course not, but i just wish to point out one of the most promising aspects of the match this sunday. To also see toure and galles score is superb, to see henry NOT score is ot so crucial, today his contribution from front to back was immense, somthing i do ot see from him enough, he used to do it so often. I congratulate TH14 on what he did today. the whole team played a great gam today, and although liverpool gave us quie a few tests in the first half, in the second we displayed a very comfoting degree of ability to take the level of the game and force it to a closure to our benefit.
