A Miserable Performance
I got home from today's ride in time to watch the second half of the Arsenal-Chelsea match, which has significantly implications for the Premiership title race. By the time I turned on the TV, Arsenal were already down 2-0. Chelsea scored 3 minutes before halftime, and again in first-half stoppage time on an own-goal by Vermaelen (who has been great for Arsenal all season). Anelka added a third for Chelsea with 10 minutes left in the game. I can't remember the last time Arsenal failed to score at home. To say they miss van Persie would be a gross understatement. The Gunners' hopes for the title are looking quite dim. Still, there's a lot of football/soccer left to be played.
