(Picture taken of my phone at the game just before kickoff)
Well, sorry for a late post. I got last minute tickets to the match against Cardiff tonight, and oh my what a performance we pulled off. I was so happy to have went to this game, the crowd was quite lively for once and it had a brilliant atmosphere.
For once this year we played as a team and i must say performances for all players were of good standard. Eduardo was welcomed on to the pitch with a huge cheer, it felt great to have him back and with the 2 goals he scored we can see he has still got that class when finishing, i was praying he would score to boost his confidence.
Here are our forum selected player ratings from Shaun (I did not type this personally)
Fabianski 7 – Didn’t hardly have anything to do, but what he did do, he did right.
Sagna 8.5 – Great game. Didn’t let their winger have a sniff of the ball.
Gallas 7 – Decent game, didn’t have much to do.
Toure 7.5 – Looks like he’s on form. Won a lot in the air.
Gibbs 8.5 – Just like Sagna, fantastic today. Defended well and got forward plenty of times.
Nasri 8 – Another good game. Very creative and helped the defence on occasions.
Song 6 – Below par. Did OK in some places, but passing was off.
Denilson 6.5 – Didn’t do anything wrong, just didn’t stand out enough for me.
Vela 8.5 – Fantastic game from him. Excellent with the ball at his feet.
Bendtner 8.5 – For me he was terrific today. Great link-up play and a well-taken goal.
Eduardo 9 – MOTM – Superb. Took both goals well, fantastic generally on the ball. Glad he’s back.
Van Persie 8 – Was brilliant from the moment he came on. Good finish.
Bischoff 7.5 – Impressed with him. Good passing and played a key part in the final goal.
Ramsey 6 – Did he even come on?
Read the topic here:
Doesn’t it go to show that we can play when we’re at our form, notice how the effect of Adebayor and Eboue not being on the pitch effected the play. Now to think that we could have Rosicky, Fabregas & Walcott back along with Arshavin creating results and performances like this just makes me feel that slightest bit better for our hopes this season.
