Blackburn Rovers 4 Arsenal 3
We had most of the possession and most of the attempts on goal. Still we managed to lose this match against a team that wanted to win the game more than us, although they were aided by a referee who gave Blackburn an offside goal, a ridiculous free kick for a dive by Olsen. Had an Arsenal player done the same thing Sky would have instigated an FA inquiry that would have resulted in a 15 match ban. As it was a Blackburn player, it wasn't mentioned. I think one of the Blackburn goals came from a free-kick that should never have been awarded. At least Arsenal looked like they can score goals again, although with that many chances, we should have scored at least 6 goals. Two own goals conceded makes me think that concentration is not being maintained, and I thought we backed off and did not press enough. The midfield looked rather weak in the second half. Not sure why Song was brought off. Apart from the own-goal, he looked pretty good.
