Amazing goal by Michu & Gibbs.
A replay is not what I wanted. Either win or lose for me in cups. We don't need to pile more games since we're not sure if we will be signing players and if Walcott is leaving. Less games to me seems the better option, since our squad depth is not the best. Anyways as for the match, my man of the match is Gibbs. Say what you will about his defending, but he is really dangerous when going forward and today he got rewarded with a goal. Arsenal really need to start going on all out attack again (like they used to a couple of seasons ago) even if goals are conceded. At least when they played like that, I at least knew they tried their hardest and the entertainment level was high. This season and last they seemed to be a second half team just trying to not concede a goal in the first half, which results in somewhat so-so matches.
Pile on more games? You're out of the League Cup and will soon be out of Champions League once Bayern mop the floor with you. Don't worry, you'll have time for the FA Cup if u advance.
Arsenal were good when moving at speed in attack, when they slow it down, does not work. Mertesacker does not have the speed or knowledge for the prem league. Gibbs is more like a winger then defender. Arsenal threw that game away, at 2-1 they were totally on top and arteta just stood still then turned his back instead of shielding the ball. Swansea played well in patches. Michu's goal was poor defending and even worse from our goalie, he always come out way to far.
Expected a win by Arsenal, but will live with a Draw.
Swansea looked like they could win it at the end
