This new look team is taking some time to settle, but we look like we're gelling. Theo has been good.

I think the emptiness of the thread is part my fault for not posting a preview and only getting this article up at kickoff. And Julie, Wolves just look like a bottom half team, no real threat at all. Their best threat came from a scuffed corner that almost went directly into the net, but Almunia punched it away.

Hey guys! Was making dinner and watching the game at the same time, too busy to post you see. Hmmm lacking a bit of sharpness in front of goal and getting into the right positions eh? Or was it that Theo didn't really look up to see where everyone was before he crossed or sent a ball in? Plenty of chances we're creating though, we'll get there!! Oh yeah GK, I think Vela would be able to make something happen down the left flank.

Sounds like someone is afraid. After the inuries we've suffered and the epic effort against Barcelona I think a bit of a struggle is to be expected (not that you'd know having been knocked out). We keep on plugging away and getting the points. I'm still laughing at the Vital Chelsea comments after Wenger said he thought Chelsea would drop points. "That maybe true Mr Wenger, but your little team won't be the ones to benefit". Still makes me chuckle.
