Gervinho was excellent. So was Theo Walcott and Abou Diaby. But in a familiar refrain, the defense was shambolic. Arsenal gave plenty of leg up to a very enterprising local team through Ignasi Miquel’s giveaway and then flailed about in a losing attempt to clear the ball. Can’t quite believe we only have only one more pre-season warm up left, against Koln.
Steve Bould has his work cut out to get this defensive unit ready for the match against Sunderland in just three weeks time. Hoo, boy!
