Revenge mission complete and as a bonus you get two of the classiest finishes you’ll ever see. Make sure you pay attention to how Eduardo uses the outside of his boot on his volley. If Eduardo was our full-time striker up front with one of RVP and Adebayor, we’d be scoring a lot more goals than we do. Think about it, how many times have you seen Adebayor blow an easy chance because he didn’t show composure or shot it too straight instead of applying a thoughtful finish. Same with RVP but to a lesser degree. For all the chances we create our return rate on goals is very low and bad finishing is the primary reason. Anyway, let’s just enjoy the win and hope the Scum can do us a favor against Villa in the next league game.
Walcott looked good in this one too, when he accelerated down the middle of the pitch a few times I realized what we’d been missing the last few months and just why we’ve got 67 scoreless ties. If we stay healthy down the stretch there’s no reason why we shouldn’t easily catch Villa. Arshavin’s also looking good on the left side of the pitch and he’s starting to get some timing chemistry going with the strikers and his midfield, too bad his cup-tied for the Champions League. Honourable mention to Song – very good game. Now let’s see him do it twice in a row.
