Half-time at the Emirates and its 2-0 to the visitors. Tough half for the Gunners with Villa having 2 chances and both of them in for goals. Squillac at fault for the first but the Gunners should have gotten one back from a penalty which was not awarded to Aaron Ramsey. Honestly should have been an easy one to call, the ball kept moving the same direction while Dunne simply took Ramsey out. He didn’t fall to easy as it was a clattering tackle.
After about 30 minutes Arsenal finally woke up with Van Persie putting one off the post. Vermaelen looks comfortable out there, just think how well we could have done this year with him in there. A few goals would have come from him along with some great defense. We’ve really missed him. How about we put Mertesacker right next to him and we’ll be unstoppable!!!
