Ten positives from today's defeat by Man United


By Boris Mellor
November 22 2014

I am often accused of being a pesimist or a moaner, so having endured a torrid 98 minutes at the home of football and Arsenal failing to beat Man U yet again (its now only 1 win in 15 games) it was important to accentuate the positive. Not an easy thing to do so I asked around a rather depressed Bank of Friendship after the game, and did manage to unearth a few. So here goes:

 

Giroud scored on his first outing on return from his long term injury, and it was a cracker

It could have been 3-1 but Di Maria missed an open goal with the keeper beaten

Van Persie didn’t score

Mike Dean very kindly didn’t send Jack off

Thankfully Szczesny collided with the lightweight Gibbs and not Fellaini

Gibbs has never had two goals in one season before

We didn’t hear the Guildford Fans until the 56th minute.

Gibbs was spared any embarrassment by the stadium announcer not stating who had scored the goal, leaving half the stadium puzzled as to who had scored

Not too many people were left to boo at the end so the players weren’t too upset.

Jill Armstrong signed my Geordie Armstrong book.

 

You may be able to think of some yourself so please be my guest and add them.

The traffic was fairly light on the way home.

I think the only real Positive was the Ox. Don't worry, he'll be made a sub soon.

I predicted the score correctly and now top the Prediction League.

My head said we would lose but stupidly my heart said we could get a draw.



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

The only positive that matters is that we are one closer to the end of this wenger nightmare.

11th positive, as bad as we are, we're still above the spuds.

The Ox is starting to look a consistent threat and gave us genuine width.

we're on the same points as them now. That's how bad we have been this season. They were bad and have gone backwards, but have still managed to gather the same number of points as us after a quarter of the season.
