Wigan played brilliantly but it didn’t have to end this way

By 1970’s Gooner

Arteta’s injury proved to be significant in Arsenal’s defeat to Wigan tonight.

He injured his foot trying to send a cross in from a difficult angle and from the resulting corner Di Mateo raced away from him towards the Arsenal goal eventually scoring Wigan’s first. Arteta could not run back as he was waving to the bench to be subbed.

Ramsey came on but by the time he got into the game they raced away and scored their second. Ramsey’s introduction weakened our midfield in my opinion as we lacked Arteta’s nous as well as his defensive qualities.

We were overrun in midfield as a result and this contributed to a lackluster performance. It also meant that very few quality balls got through to RVP.

Wigan played intelligently, keeping the ball and playing without panic. Wenger’s decision to keep faith with Benayoun meant that we could not stretch their wing back system of 3 2 4 1.

Surely when the other team employ a system that packs the middle of their defence the way in is to open the game up on the wings by using two out and out wingers, not one.

Benayoun kept coming inside all the time thus playing into their hands. Theo Walcott also had a game to forget which meant that we had no penetration on the wings.

AND Wigan played brilliantly.

Most of Walcott's games,except the occasional mom performance ,are games to forget.He's not very brave!

Wigan played brilliantly... Thanks to the standard of refereeing this season, I think wolves might have a chance to escape the drop.

Cant blame anyone in particular for this loss. But our desire to attack and keep the ball on their side of the pitch leaves us so vulnerable. Watch the 1st goal and see how benayoun and the others are waving for attack yet no one's at the back. Rectify this and we'l be okay.

Meaner says...Did Benayoun deserve to be replaced? We were playing 9 against 11, both Walcork and Ramilson were invisible.

Without space, Walcork is as good as none.

Ramilson on the pitch only allow more time for Wigan to reorganise. Maybe Ramilson feels he is still young, so time is on his side, so whatever he does is slow and steady. Probably he would fuck a woman slowly as well, taking his fucking own sweet time.

Not only do we have to worry about finishing above Tottenham but also Newcastle and even Chelsea who by the way we play next coming after their massive FA Cup win this weekend and no doubt they will be playing on a high... Yet I have faith !!!

Wonderful blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost on everything.

Would you propose starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?
There are so many choices out there that I'm completely overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Thanks!
