Arsenal lost to Hibs!
Yep you heard it right. Earlier this week Arsenal were defeated by Hibs 2 1, and the Arsenal fans are not taking this defeat well, with comments about why are they not giving their academy players a change and why are they giving minutes to players that they are actively trying to sell.
Despite this defeat, to “Hibernation” Arsenal is still a strong team…They create fast accurate transitions from midfield to attack. They have dangerous free-kick specialists, and they move with silky speed.
They only lost because of a dreadful goal that started from a bad pass back and miskick by the goalie, and then Hibs scoring an offside goal in the second half.
I just want to say to our Arsenal fans who are tuning in….welcome to Scottish football.
It’s not sure if Arsenal will play so many fringe players tomorrow, but one thing is for certain, with Rangers losing to Tranmere and Arsenal losing to Hibs we are going to see a massive reaction tomorrow.
Rangers better lose their Zimmer frames and give our attacking midfielders better glasses, so they can see where the penalty box is…
And a number of the Arsenal players have to finally work out which foot is the right foot and which is the left.
For those who are interested in the stats. In Europe Arsenal are 13th placed in the club coefficients, with Real Madrid on 6th and FC Porto at 15th.
It’s going to be an interesting week.
