Due to an hard-earned break relaxing at the beach I missed the Portsmouth game and am unable to comment.
Fortunately though, a friend of mine who goes by the name Alan Goat on the blog did see the game and filled me in. AG, a female fan and a very new fan at that, is still learning about the game but made a host of comments about the match which I have compiled below.
My thoughts are that a win and a clean sheet was the best result possible even if the performance was far from perfect. It’s a good way to end 2009 and I still don’t feel we’re right out of the title race yet. However, as I said after the Villa game, the manager needs to make a couple of signings and without them will will be battling for fourth.
Have your say on AG’s assessment on Arsenal v Pompey by leaving a comment.
