Arsenal 1 Liverpool 1
Not a bad performance, but not a good one. We dominated in terms of possession and created the better chances, but were unable to put the ball in the net. Diaby had another fairly good game although it seems to me that he tires easily and his performance drops off after about 60 minutes.
I was expecting a major defensive error, but it was disappointing that I had to wait until the 101st minute for it to happen.
11:47 of extra time after 8 minutes were added! By that token the game should have lasted 130 minutes, or even longer considering the time-wasting tactics adopted by Liverpool prior to the Arseanl goal. Do the officials make up the rules as they go along? Surely not. To round off a perfect afternoon, there was Jamie Redknapp. At half-time he was claiming a Liverpool penalty after one of their players tripped over a team mate. After the game, as justification for the Liverpool penalty, we were informed by Mr Redknapp that 90 seconds should be added on when a goal is scored. If that is the case, why wasn't 90 seconds added on after Liverpool scored? Why wasn't 12 minutes of time added during the 4-4 draw with Newcastle? It is painful listening to his excuses for his ex-clubs. Do I detect an anti-Arsenal-agenda?
