All right kids… second half will kickoff in about 4 minutes. I have to shift some stuff in the garage to make room for the wood. Be right back.
Uhhh…. the FSC graphic just said that Liverpool had 55% of the possession. Really?
Jesus, according to the stats Arsenal are getting destroyed. Liverpool have 7 shots, 4 on goal and Arsenal have managed just 2 shots. And yes, Liverpool have 55% of the possession.
Cesc is out, Diaby in… Second half is underway.
49′ — Liverpool is dominating the game, Arsenal is still playing the high line and, now the word is that Cesc had ligament damage in his knee. How will they respond?
50′ — Adebayor responds… with a disgraceful dive.
57′ — The boys are playing hard but they can’t seem to get anything going. Liverpool with 60% of the possession now.
62′ — Yay! Webb sends off Adebayor for a dive by Arbeloa. Good job Howard Webb, someone seriously needs to send these matches to the FA for review. Webb’s bias against Arsenal is so fucking transparent it’s not even funny.
67′ — van Persie yellow now. Webb’s having a great game.
70′ — Sagna yellow probably could have been a red, very high tackle intended to take the man. Webb shows some lieniency. Babel on to add more attacking to Liverpool.
73′ — Carragher goes in the book for a foul on van Persie. Was he last man? No Keith, he’s not a scouse, Webb calls the game against Arsenal whether it’s Chelsea, Man U, Liverpool, or anyone.
75′ — Gerrard dives and then shows up the ref, the “respect” campaign has been a joke since day one. Where’s the yellow for Gerrard, Webb?
80′ — Is Liverpool playing for the draw?
81′ — Lucas commits his 18th foul of the game and finally picks up a yellow. Robbie Keane off. I hope he slips in the shower.
82′ — Arsenal corner. Whatever happens with this match I am very proud of this 10 man team.
88′ — Song has put in a massive performance, his final ball is not quite up to snuff, but he ran his heart out and harassed the Liverpool midfield.
90′ — 3 minutes added. Arsenal looking tired, they have to dig deep to keep this score line.
91′ — Eboue on, Nasri off. Crowd claps. Good job Goonahs.
93′ — Arsenal free kick, wasted by Almunia. That was funny, though, Wenger directing people, Almunia takes the kick at the center circle and flies it straight out of touch.
The boys showed some real heart today, fighting back from a 10 man squad to beat Liverpool plus 12th man Howard Webb. I’d like to see Wenger take Webb to task for that game, he was a complete disgrace and actually caused more tension on the pitch than he solved. I’d also like to see Arsenal challenge the red card, but that won’t happen because the ban will be just one game and they don’t want to risk an extra match added.
Right, look for the Good, Bad, and Ugly tomorrow. I’m off to collect some wood.
