West Ham v Arsenal: A Fans View

West Ham v Arsenal: A Fans View

After a crushing late Marlon Harewood goal, there was more than an opinion or two on the Vital Arsenal forum.

Here's what some of our members thought.

Professor Calculus…….

During the course of the season some decisions will go for us others against us, but yet again we simply didn't take our chances, it's that simple. If we had taken our chances on Wednesday and today then we would be feeling good about two wins in the bag, as it stands we got nothing (ok a point) from Wednesday`s game and again nothing from today's game.

It's hard to take but it's all self inflicted, the negatives are that we are an attacking side who can't score, the positives are that our football is sound and we are creating more than enough chances. But to lose to West Ham who are just poor, they were there to be beaten today.

FatOldDave……

Yes, we should beat teams like West Ham. Yes, we lost some games last season to poor sides. There are patterns developing ...BUT IT'S ONLY NOVEMBER! United will not be all conquering this season, although they are doing very well despite not replacing the likes of Keane and Van Nistelrooy. Chelsea are clearly vulnerable on occasion as this afternoon has shown. We are not out of it yet, but next Sunday has just become a massive game. If we are serious contenders we have to bounce back and turn over the Micky's next week. Keep the faith. The future is red!

D4NNYT……

We were an absolute disgrace yesterday. How Wenger has the right to act like that I do not know. We went onto that pitch thinking that just by being there we will win, and we all know that west ham always want to beat us more than anyone else, and it showed. We were second to every ball, Henry was nowhere, and it could have been 3 or 4 had it not been for the Immense Toure yet again.

I was ashamed last night, and it made me sick that Wenger and the Fabregas have to be such bad losers...... Gallas showed heart and that defeat really got to him, but least he kept his mouth shut....

We all need to grow up, and start playing football again.

PUREGOLD…….

I had a feeling yesterday would go that way, part of me thought that after Wednesday the team would come out wanting to prove a point, the more realistic side of my brain told me they would be down because after playing the football they did on Wednesday and not winning they are starting to wonder how an earth they will win games.

I feel we don't have a plan B, I was annoyed that Wenger took off RVP and brought on Eboue, and then Flamini. Why not put on Theo who could change a game?

Don't get me wrong, I love the football we play, but I feel there is a time and a place, you need ugly results to instil confidence, get an ugly goal, then play the nice stuff, but make sure you get the lead you need first.

Ok Mr common, let's have a look at the form guide. Here is where we have finished the last 10 years... 3/1/2/2/2/1/2/1/2/4. Perhaps you would care to input your mobs positions during the same ten years....come on lad its a computer. I know you'd run out of ink if you had to use a pen!
