Gunners deliver a whimp as EPL kicks off

Frustrated?


Arsenal Manager Wenger seems to be upset with the slow start that his team managed against Aston Villa, here at the Emirates Stadium. The Gunners fought the fixture in a newly-constructed Emirates stadium and that must have been all the more encouraging. However, in what was a dull, lacklustre performance, they almost conceded the game to Aston. It was some brilliant play from Theo Walcott, with a superb finish by Gilberto Silva, who saved the Gunners the blushes. Theo was the only redeeming factor along with the stadium itself. But a few more such performances and people wont be queueing up outside the Emirates Stadium.

As a Gunner, I found it a little difficult to "celebrate" EPL's return with a forgetful result like that. The Wenger Boyz have to lift their game and start showing some more teeth and width in their attack. And Lehmann must learn to stand his line and not go for the ball at the drop of the hat. Till next week and another round of Gunning, bbye ....

To Nandu, u can keep arguing we had what it takes, coz we HAD. The point is the world doesnt look at intentions/capacity - it looks at results - we just didnt perform - we had the capacity yes, but whats the use? We need better RESULTS dude, no matter how much 'capacity' we have .... but am optimistic, we can make it up as the season progresses!
