Some worrying signs regarding our defense today, especially in the second half. Almunia had a good performance but we know he’s capable, just not consistent. Walcott’s performance was good but could be better, that’s the thing with him. He had some nice crosses and setup the Nasri goal nicely, but he gets so many play-making opportunities that one expects more. When Wenger says that we need another back, he’s not kidding. Too many times their wingers got behind our line and had paths to goal. I have to think a stronger team would punish us more. Still, it’s only pre-season and that’s why we play the games – to iron out the kinks. Chamakh had a fairly anonymous performance, I’m waiting to see what kind of combination him and Van Persie can be. No Cesc, no RVP, but we win the Emirates Cup. Hopefully it’s not the only only silverware this season.
