Stoke 1 Arsenal 0: I’m probably being naive
YES, the defending for the goal was very poor.
Yes, we were imperfect going forward and Ozil (and others arguably) could and should have done better.
But more often than not if you put that game through a simulator it would have chucked out a scenario where we equalised and then quite possibly went on to win the game.
On the offside goal, put it this way: had it been given nobody would be arguing he was offside. I think we were pretty unlucky on that and the penalty that wasn’t awarded too.
So I’m not entirely dispirited. Though I do realise my optimism will in all likelihood turn out to be completely misplaced!
