I'll write a full post on the game tonight when i have unmonitored internet use.
For now a couple of questions:
What was Arsene thinking with the line up? Song-Diaby in CM!?!
Does Reyes bother turning up for away games?
If we concede a goal, do we ever bother battling back anymore/ Or, more worryingly, Can we battle back, i.e. do we have the quality in the team to pull games back any more if we go down, or need to get a goal?
If Freddie can't score, should he play?
If Song is playing, why not Walcott?
Most damningly of all, are we an average team, being artificially propped up by the greatest player on earth - Henry?
A quick note on Adebayor. He missed several sitters last night, and by sitters i mean just touch the ball in a forward motion and =goal, BUT PLEASE DON'T SCAPEGOAT HIM. He WILL get better if we keep faith in him. I'm sick of reading people slagging off the players after watching them in a handful of games. Adey has brought us a dimension we didn't have, and will improve his finishing. Trust me. His first miss was set up by a header of his which no-one else on the team would have won. Consider that.
Having said that, I'm now minorly hysterical that we're going to go bankrupt without CL football, and that TH is surely thinking about playing for a team of men, not boys. Any reassurance on this panic will be welcome.
