Yet another match I was unable to view live, but Arsenal again stumbled in their quest to catch Man U at the top of the Premier League table. They played more like a team trying to avoid the drop, than one contending for a title, especially on defense. And this time, they had no referee's decision to blame for anything. Instead, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger blamed the pitch (see here). Sounds like he's beginning to run low in the excuse department. Next thing you know, he'll be blaming my friend Andy, who became an Arsenal fan just after they won their last piece of silverware (I believe he also became a Chicago Cubs fan in 1909).
Arsenal are now 5 points adrift of Man U in the title hunt, albeit with a game in hand. My sense is that Man U's lead is pretty safe.
