Arsenal show cojones to defeat Swansea

Thanks Troy.

Since your unprofessional comment over Arsenal lacking the cojones, we have won 4 on the bounce, 3 of which Arsenal have come from behind to take the victory.

When Deeney made his comments, a few disgruntled fans said “a decent manager would print the comments and out use them to motivate the team” insinuating than Wenger and the players would just brush them off, ignore them, be blind to comments that were correct, if said unprofessionally.

Yesterday Arsenal went 1-0 down for the 3rd game in a row.

It was a carbon copy of the previous 2 games. Dominate the early stages, go 1-behind, lucky to not be 2-behind at half time. Come out 2nd half, dominate once more and win.

Coming from behind like that shows character. Shows cojones.

Obviously I would rather be 3-0 up at half time and cruising, but football is not always that easy.

Both Chelsea, Man U and Man City scrapped to 1 goal victories against small teams this weekend.

Yesterday’s victory (and my math might be wrong) makes it:

9 wins in 10 games
14 homes win in a row
Not lost at home in the league since January

For a few years, people have moaned about our home fans. About how their negativity go’s through to the players and the home fans are why we do not win anything.

The statistics this year show that is a load of old rubbish.

Someone responded to my comment on the She Wore Facebook page with “where’s the trophy” when I put those statistics up.

May 2017. The FA Cup. There’s your trophy.

But I am sure you will say it isn’t the trophy you want, you probably now moan about the lack of Champions League football, despite spending 10 years moaning that being in the Champions League was pointless if you are not winning trophies.

So onwards to Belgrade at home where we will be looking secure qualification for the knock out stages of the Europa League and keep that home winning run going. Then on to the tricky period of Man City away and Spurs at home.

A final thought. The press continue to portray Arsenal as awful and Spurs as brilliant. There is one point between the clubs.

A final, final point.

Since Troy Deeney’s comments about lack cojones, Watford are P 2 L 2. Yesterday Troy showed his true self.

Refusing to give the ball back after Stoke put it out so one of their players could get treatment, and then violently attacking Joe Allen, who is about a foot shorter.

We all know Troy is a bully boy who once stamped on a defenceless students head whilst he was laying in the ground.

He got a yellow for the incident, but it will surely be upgraded to a red and a 3 game suspension.

Troy showed his true self, a violent thug who acts cowardly. He certainly is not rehabilitated.

I notice he hasn’t been on TV recently calling his team mates out for not showing cojones.

Have a good Sunday. I am having lamb shank.

  1. Charles Charlie Charles

    Been going to football for over 45 years now. Like most people, I’ve played as well. School team, local club, pub team etc.

    Never once I have come across a player who was lazy, couldn’t be arsed to go in for the 50/50 or bother to chase the ball in an attempt to keep it live.

    I don’t buy the “cojones”, “greater desire to win” thing.

    By nature, when we compete, be it at work or in sport, we all desire to win.

    No one wants to be on the losing side, everyone wants to be the winner. That’s what football is all about.

    22 blokes going hammer and tongs all trying to make sure they are in the winning 11.

    It’s more to do with the mindset of the player on the day. If he is lined up with the 11 that is expected to lose, he will throw caution to the wind, take chances rather than play the safe option. If he is playing for the 11 who are expected to win, he we play it back rather than risk giving it away, he will pass rather than shoot.

    Classic example was this years cup final. Arsenal were going to lose, the only uncertainty amongst the press and the pundits was the margin of loss.

    As it happened, this played right into our hands. Our squad went out there with nothing to lose and everything to gain and their lot went out frightened of making the one mistake that would cost their club the double.

    Arsenal won yesterday because they were expected to win before the match and at half time, they were expected to lose. Swansea lost because they were expected to win after 45 minutes.

    Come the start of the 2nd half, we were taking risks, they were kicking into touch and time wasting.

    No cojones involved.
