Legia Warsaw 5 – 6 Arsenal
- Legia Goals : Ariel Cabral 17, Koscielny 33 (og), Jedrzejczyk 36, 75, Iwanski 90
Report : In our final game before the big kick off, lets just say we looked weak at the back.
In goal, Wenger started with Fabianski who had a nightmare and Arsenal were 3-0 down within 35 mins. Yet again it was Fabianski failing to deal with balls into the box.
But we cant just blame the keeper, Wenger played our best back four in Sagna,Koscielny,Vermaelen & clichy and they all looked terrible. Koscielny was all over the place
3-1 down at half time after Chamakh scored a brave header after nice work by Nasri, Wenger made some changes bringing on Szczesny, Gibbs, Eboue and Vela.
And the subs all played there part, Szczesny made a great double save,Eboue scoring 2, Gibbs getting a fine goal with Vela getting 2 assists. Jay Thomas and Nasri also adding late goals before Legia scored 2 more late goals for it to finish 5-6 to Arsenal
So…what do we make of this? … Well Arsene has had all summer to sort out the same problems. We have been crying out for a GK and a powerful CB… Still nothing so the same old problems still stand and are yet to be address..Wenger told Arsenal.com that he was still not sure who was our number 1 keeper?… Well Arsene its so simple that even you must now be able to see…”THEY ARE BOTH SHITE”... With only 1 week till the liverpool game and no sign of new signings.. BE WORRIED, ITS GOING TO BE A LONG SEASON! and I say its going to be our worst under Wenger.
