Brighton, Moaning, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and the International Break

Brighton

The victory over Brighton took us to 7 games unbeaten in all competitions. Winning 6 of the 7 and drawing away to Chelsea.

4 clean sheets, 15 goals scored.

Admittedly, bar Chelsea we have played no one of note, but you can only beat what’s in front of you, and we are doing exactly that.

I do not see too many people criticising Man U for only having played poor teams this season.

After the disaster of Stoke & Liverpool, this run between the two international breaks has boosted our confidence and shot us up the table, as well as put us in a very comfortable position in the Europa League – allowing us to rest everyone for the home tie against Red Star Belgrade; 2 days before we travel to Manchester City.

We sit quietly in 5th, level with Chelsea and a point behind Spurs, ahead of Liverpool. The Manchester clubs are 6 points ahead of us, but we are in the mix.

With upcoming games at Watford and Everton, before a home game to Swansea, we have a great opportunity to keep the run and close that gap at the top at the magically 10 game mark.

We are title contenders.

Moaning

Despite the run that we are on, some people just seem to like to moan.

We beat Brighton 2-0, and at no point did we look at conceding a goal. And people have labelled us “boring” and “predictable.”

The same people put George Graham on a pedestal, a man who made his career on being boring a predictable and gaining 1-0 wins.

Give me boring and predictable Arsenal over exciting Liverpool any day of the week. The last 7 games for the Scousers have seen 22 goals scored. They have won just 1. 3 points is 3 points. And yesterday we got 3 points. Liverpool got 1.

9 Premier League home wins in a row, and people are sitting around moaning. Get behind the team.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Since joined Liverpool, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has played out of a possible 165 out of 630 minutes, seeing his side P 7, W 1, D 4, L 2

Be careful what you wish for.

International break

You will be pleased to know that I am going to take two weeks off blogging during the international break.

The blog has set new PBs in readership this year but I need a break. I am sure some of you will be pleased with that.

Have a good two weeks

    I wish Oxlade well but he may struggle to establish himself at Liverpool. He has always seemed so short of self belief. He felt he had to get away from Wenger’s Arsenal … even to earn a lot less money. Wenger should be asking himself why so many want away and why so few want to join ?

      I completely disagree, what he has is a lot of self-belief, he thinks he is a lot better than what he is. He thought he was good enough to play CM for Arsenal, he wasn’t. He thought he was good enough to play CM for Liverpool. He isn’t. He is not earning a lot less money. He is a decent wing back, OK winger, average sentre midfielder

      Don’t like your dislike for Wenger allow you to wrongly judge players

    Agree, give me solid wins and clean sheets over 4- 2`s and 4 – 3`s any day of the week. How long will this mentality last for though? We see it every season at some point and just when you think weve turned a corner, bang, we lose all discipline and get hit for a 4 or 5. Despite all the moaning, we are only 2 points off having had a blindin start to the season. Weve had a right tricky start to the season and we`re not in a bad spot but I cant have that we`re title contenders, no chance IMO. Spot on about Chamberlain though, he has an inflated opinion of himself. He plays 1 good game in 5 and his final product hasnt improved since he first broke through. He`ll never be a top CM at a big club. Oh, and he never took a pay cut either, he was on 80 grand a week at The Arse and he signed a contract at Liverpool worth 120.
