Come on Arsenal, Give us a Goal!
Posted on January 15th, 2011 at 3:38 PM
It's a derby today as we travel across London (hopefully not on the tube) to face West Ham at Upton Park.
Earlier in the season we beat the Hammers 1-0 at the Emirates very late on with a headed goal from Alex Song, at that time we hadn't been struggling to score goals and had bagged 12 goals in the 3 prior games! This time around we've netted 1 penalty against Leeds in the last 3 games, how things change!
Hopefully we can get back to winning ways today with a couple of goals from the expected Theo Van Nasregas attacking partnership, the Hammers currently sit bottom of the Barclay Premier League having only one 1 of their last 6 games and being beating by Newcastle 5-0 last week.
Upton Park isn't an easy ground to go to and it wouldn't be a surprise to see West Ham perform the much favoured approach of parking the bus.. whether they stay on the bus or get off and give us a game is another matter though!
Our recent lack of goals is quite a surprise as we're the second highest scorers in the league, just one behind Manchester United, recent game have seen us hit many posts and have the usual amounts of possession but chances just haven't been going in, maybe it's just a matter of luck not going our way and hopefully this will change today! I asked for some scoreline predictions earlier and it seems despite our recent lack of goals many Gunners feel we may just fire a few in today:
3-1 Nasri, fabregas x 2 and Cole -@Welsh_Gooner
optimistic head on, I'll go 3-1 to Arsenal, Cesc, Chamakh and Theo! @riddler77
3-1 Arsenal, hehe:) x@emmagarstang
I reckon hard going 2-1 to the Arsenal. If I'm feeling optimistic. If not .... 0-0@reznuk
4-1 to #theArsenal@cameron71639
3-0 RVP, Nasri and Cesc!!@Verminator_5
Emphatic 3-0 win. Hopefully Robin gets a confidence-boosting, recovering-his-killer-touch, hat-trick.@raunyoubeauty
As usual thanks for all the scoreline predictions guys, I'm going to go with a 5-1 'Hammering' this week as I optimistically expect us to make up for a few missed chances :)
If your watching the game today then make sure you listen out for the new Chamakh song as shown in this video!
He's not White, and he's not black
He comes from a place not far from Iraq
He plays upfront, and he plays in attack
He's our mate, Marouane Chamakh
Na Na Na Na sing
Na Na Na Na sing
Come on you Gunners, lets get back to winning ways ahead of our replays!
