After a very slow start and some more comedy in defence, the Gunners showed that when they get going they are a class above everyone else.
There has been so much bad press about Mesut Ozil in the media recently, he’s ‘lazy’, he ‘lacks passion’, he ‘isn’t a team player’. Well he shut the critics up with a good all round performance and a goal to confirm Arsenals win against the barcodes at St James Park.
The slow change towards a successful tactic is working, the squad are playing like a more coherent team on the pitch.
Some of it’s not pretty and sometimes you have to bite your nails when you see the ball being given back to Cech for the umpteenth time but, you can see the seeds that Unai is planting.
It’s 3 points in the bag and, at the end of the day, that’s all that counts.
The critics? Well they can have fun laughing at the Homeless Wanderers who were defeated at Wembley again today.
