Well, that picture says it all, doesn’t it? Our first win in a month or so, and against one of the toughest opponents we could’ve got. Meanwhile, on the Arsenal bench though…
The look of disappointment on Wenger as Swansea go 2-1 up, with skipper Ashley Williams grabbing what turned out to be the winner.
Six points off relegation now, our season is looking somewhat better, and it could be made even better in the next three weeks, with games against Norwich, Bournemouth and Aston Villa all looking like points up for grabs.
The player that disappointed me the most was Bafetimbi Gomis by a country mile. He was offside whenever the ball came to him, and didn’t seem to pass as much as some of his team mates may have wanted him to.
The rest of the team seemed flawless. A few misplaced passes here and there, as well as a defensive mix up leading to Campbell’s opener, but Swansea had a good game overall.
On the Swansea fan pages on Facebook, many fans (me included) complained about how the team we chose was inexperienced, for example, Stephen Kingsley playing in the place of Neil Taylor, and starting the likes of Amat and Fer, who haven’t had much first-team chances this season. We were expecting it to be a long night as soon as Campbell scored, but we were proven wrong!
Man Of The Match
Has to be that man right there. I’m not choosing Kingsley simply because he is new into the first team, I’m choosing him because of the game he had. He wasn’t outplayed by Arsenal, and made some crucial moves during the game. Overall, a good player, who I would like to see featured more.
I don’t think we went to Arsenal for the win tonight. That is why we put a relatively young team out. But the win is a bonus, and means that the players that didn’t feature tonight will be rested in time for Norwich on Saturday, where we could see ourselves potentially nine points clear of the drop zone… Imagine that…
