Arsenal finally starting to come into it in the last five minutes. Telling that Everton were by far the dominant side through 40 min yet Arsenal created the two best chances of the match when they were in the ascendancy. Ramsey has looked terrible but still almost has a goal and an assist and is putting in his usual hard work. Koscielny is a fricking man, puts strikers in his pocket better than anyone else in the world IMO. Also US might have a shot in the WC if Howard plays like he has the last two games
i think we played poorly, but their dominance was a bit overstated. We had promising situations throughout the first half on the counter which we blew with poor passes. as our passing rounded into shape, we began to take control a bit and gave ourselves far more dangerous opportunities than Everton had throughout their period of dominance.
still think this game needs theo to either pin oviedo back, or make them pay for oviedo bombing forward consistently. i'm comfortable with how our D is performing. if we our passing continues to round into form, i think we should be able to get 3 pts.
per and kos are both flawed CBs so I'm not sure I could ever individually put them into the best all around category that guys like Thiago Silva, Kompany, old Vidic, etc. were in, but they're so perfect for each other they put each other in that world class category when playing together.
