The game never felt like a proper competitive match, with Fulham awaiting the UEFA cup final and our title hopes long gone, the only thing to play for was finishing above Harry Redknapp's incredibly over hyped and rated Spuds eleven, even they couldn't push it to the wire losing a two goal lead hilariously against Burnley.
Fulham were never really in the game, despite Fabianski's woeful efforts to help them into it, if Arsene persists with this Pole then I really do despair at his judgement, he is clearly not up to it. Eboue was magnificent in central midfield, Diaby solid, Nasri industrious, Arshavin and Walcott frustratingly erratic as ever. RVP gave us teeth up front and on another day would have had a hat full. A massive bonus was Johan Djourou's return, he looked fit and strong, if he can stay that way then he can be like a big new signing for us. Lansbury showed some potential with his late substitute appearance.
Like the season, there was good and bad, the stronger and the weak, some players were clearly up for the task, others still have significant question marks hanging over their heads. Obviously its great to finish above the Spuds, but in truth they were very very lucky to have pushed us so close, in reality we have been considerably better then them over the season, in a way that I would acknowledge Chelsea have been considerably better than us. If Harry Redknapp deserves manager of the season, then Lucasz Fabianski deserves Arsenal player of the season, the lame comments from various Spuds fans to try to justify the award were nothing but stupid and short sighted, several other managers have done far better then Redknapp this year, in fact Arsene Wenger has arguably done a lot more with a squad that cost considerably less than the Spuds' squad, something a lot of their cretinous fans would do well to appreciate.
Anyway enough said for this year, the spending starts with Chamakh, it then needs to continue with a goalkeeper and at least one centre back, I'd also love to Sol kept on for another year, I'd also like to see a bit of dead wood moved on elsewhere. Anyways here's to another season of great football and what might have been, we should appreciate what we have got rather than what we do not have because there are many many others who would kill to have even half of it.
