Sport is the only entertainment where, no matter how many times you go back, you never know the ending. - Neil Simon
The referee shouldn't have played 4 minutes of injury time and the Arsenal defence should have reacted quicker when Modric's shot hit the post. But it doesn't matter.
We should never have been in a position when we were having to scramble shots out the box in the last minute to retain the 3 points we had played beautifully for up until the 89th minute. A cliché exists because it generally tells a truth and the fact we didn't play until the final whistle cost us.
It's not that hard to defend a one-goal lead. When Chelsea won the league under Mourinho they did it the whole time and were damned left, right and centre for being boring. They took the lead and shut up shot, much like George Graham's Arsenal side. Now, I know this side is young, and maybe naive, but you'd think that when we're playing injury time with a one-goal lead against a team who is playing in the biggest match of their season, we'd kill some time and make sure we defended the 3 points. Slow it down a bit, dribble it in the corner if we have to, but DON'T try and score a 5th goal and leave yourselves open to the counter attack.
I like Abou Diaby, but the comparisons with Vieira are ridiculous. Vieira would have settled his team down and told them to focus when the Spuds scored their third goal rather than trying hell for leather to score a fifth ourselves. What did Diaby do? He ran around the pitch, acting the goat, trying to do everything and in reality, just leaving a massive hole in the middle of the field. Maybe that hole can become more than a metaphor and swallow him up for his cretinous referreeing.
And a word for Wenger. I was pleased he took Walcott off - he was crap last night and kept on doing his old trick of running too fast and losing the ball. But why the fuck did he take Silvestre with two minutes to go - just to introduce greater defensive instability.
Considering how fired up they were a point wouldn't have been the worst result ever, but after having a lead like that it was an absolute shambles. And to see their supporters celebrating like they had won the cunting World Cup was an embarassment. Their still bottom of the league. And cunts.
I suppose that is the crucial point. We might not have won but we still represent civilised society against those cunts. And of course we can still win the league.
