Manchester City [4-2] Arsenal - Money wins this round

Manchester City [4-2] Arsenal - Money wins this round

Postby rvtheace » Sat Sep 12, 2009 5:13 pm

Arsenal hit another nasty bump in the early stages of the EPL, when the second side of Manchester handed us a defeat that both injures and insults.

The match played host to a variety of themes. The rise of a new power. Extravagance vs. frugality. The return of an ex-player. It was a recipe for dramatics, and in that sense it did not fail to disappoint.

It could have easily began with Arsenal taking the lead, but Gallas messed up a free header early on. Not soon after that, we were punished with another silly goal in Manchester when a Richards header bounced off the post, off Almunia's head, and into the goal. Arsenal's game was not quite poor, but not quite awesome either. It did not seem like equalising would be so easy, especially given the defensive qualities Man City were displaying.

It was great to see Rosicky back after such a long hiatus, and the man went about his job showing his skill on the ball that we've been missing for a while. Real dividends were paid when he found RvP in a good position, and the striker half-fell, and half-flicked himself into a shooting position and managed to produce a goal of supreme elegance without ever seeming to get his balance right.

At 1-1, and the attack clicking into gear, things were looking good for us. But Richards managed to skip past Song and feed Bellamy, who happily sidefooted his team back into the lead.

Arsenal tried to hit back, and vociferously appealed for a penalty after an apparent handball by Barry. But it all went in vain soon after when Adebayor rose to produce a killer header. His celebration that followed was beyond disgraceful, running the length of the pitch to scream his lungs out at the away fans. Pathetic.

Minutes later, SwP was presented with a clear run on goal and produced a clinical finish to give the home side a wide berth.

However, the way Arsenal finished the match, it appeared as if they might conjure something out of this match. Rosicky marked his return with a calmly finish goal to reduce the deficit. But despite the flurry of chances towards the end, including RvP hitting the post a la Man United, Arsenal ended the day with a sickening defeat.

Clearly, Manchester City are going to be a force to reckon with this season, especially if they combine classy finishing with attritional play as they did today. Arsenal need to sharpen in attack and avoid making any more mistakes at the back. It's early in the season yet, but it looks all set to be one heck of a contest.

You like the fact the ONLY way a team can challenge the top 4 is to buy a shitload of players with a stupidly rich chairman?

If this is the case what is the f***ing point of teams like Fulham, Burnley etc...? They might aswell stop playing since theres no way they can push on from 7th place. Also Burnley can only do so much if they stay up since here is no money, they don't have a stupidly rich chairman. What have $hitty done to deserve all this money? Nothing! Just got lucky thats all. Same with Chelski.

Football needs to be sorted out. This crap can't continue, in american sports what i like is it's a level playing feield financial wise, all the teams CAN go to the top if they sort their team out. Also if they bring though young talent they can keep these players and go all the way to the top with them, in football it seems they are simply snapped up by bigger clubs so even European giants such as Ajax and maybe even now Bayern are just becoming feeder clubs.

Teams like $hitt and Chelski are making football a joke!

As I said the other week when I was told you would destroy us. Why?

We beat top 4 teams all the time. It doesn't matter if we're better than them or not, we can still beat them. So again I will ask, now we are a better team than previous years, why do you think we will stop beating top 4 teams?

and how do you expect them to competewith top 4 without shit load of money!? what, they should create a strong team without money!? it's impossible in the football today, because top 4 will still their best players, which means they are destroying football. that's a bit hypocritical don't you think!?

i mean what's the point of football if we know that top 4 will win it every year!?

why is it ok that top 4 is ritch, and it's not ok for others!?

Cheers RV.

People seem to forget that Man City ripped us apart last season, it's hardly a new phenomena......
