Completely Random Sports Non Sequiturs From A Completely Random Hip Hop Head

Sunderland 1 – 1 Arsenal

Posted by hiphopmama on October 5, 2008

I didn’t get to see this game as it wasn’t televised here, but the result is enough. What is with all the up and down performances from the Gunners? They play brilliant games in other tournaments, then come back and slog it out in their Premier League matches. Remember the 6-0 Carling Cup match with a squad that had an average age of 19? That was followed up by a 1-2 loss to friggin’ Hull City. After much hand wringing and talk of overhauling the lineup, next to no changes were made and they romped Porto 4-0 in Champions League play. Now, after seemingly righting the ship, they only just managed to pull off a tie with Fabregas’ extra time header. Yeah, they had a goal incorrectly disallowed and Sunderland stuck to their game plan of hanging back well, but is this or is this not the same team that has dispatched much bigger opposition with apparent ease? Oh well. One point is better than none.
