Delap-idated Arsenal take on Villa this Saturday with new hope following last week's defeat by Stoke City.
Up the Arsenal
Still smarting from the shock defeat Arsend Wenger commented today, 'Although I didn't see the two goals that Stoke did score last week, I believe that someone threw the ball in the goal from off the pitch. I do not believe that is football, is necessary pass the ball 20 or 30 times if doesn't go in the goal, start again, that is football.'
However after watching a video of the game Wenger has consulted BBC pundit Gok Wan, who has advised the Gunners that the Stoke City players were not actually any taller than the Gunners, but the vertically striped shirts made them appear bigger.
For the next game Arsenal will wear slimmimg black shirts with the optional arrows on the back (as worn by Tony Adams in the glory days). The 1970's offside rule has been reinstated especially for the game so a goal fest is not on the cards.
1:0 to the Aesenal... unless it goes to throw ins.
