And now it’s Arsenal and Manchester United’s turns to offer the title to each other, as both of them wasted their chances to extend their lead/close out the lead. So well, if you still don’t know the scores in mid week:
Newcastle 0 Manchester United 0
Tottenham 3 Arsenal FC 3
Firstly, I want to say, well, it was another chance blown more for Arsene Wenger’s men as Manchester United didn’t seem to have the bite to overcome Newcastle, whilst Arsenal looked like they had it in the bag when the score was 3-1…. but being typically Arsenal, they threw away the lead again.
Sczcesny, so desperate to prove himself out there, seemed to have one of the days he should forget, as his challenge on Aaron Lennon (as I said about Eboue), there was no need to get out of the goal and challenge him like that.
Theo Walcott, whom said they needed this match as apology for their early season blip against Spurs, tried really hard…. for 45 minutes before Arsenal went to sleep and conceded a rather silly penalty. Diaby definitely should have tried harder to tackle Van De Vaart before Spurs equalized.
