Arsenal-Wolves: Unbriddled joy Indeed

Not the ideal way to get a result but at this moment in this very unpredictable season, we will take them any way they come. St. Niklas has done it again, scoring with virtually the last kick of the game. Credit to the team for keeping the belief. 5 games to go, with Man City and tiny Totts still to be played. No matter, this team will not give up until the very last second of the league.

The Teams, in Motion

Home: Arsenal FC

Away: FC Barcelona

I thought I should share some youtube videos of the two teams to get us in the mood for the game; not that we need any motivation for it. The videos show an array of classic goals and moves by the two teams across several seasons. As you can see, players may change, but the teams' philosophies remains the same. Arsenal's style of play might have changed a little bit since the great counter-attacking team of 2003-2004 torwards more possession and ever shorter passes. That said, the possession, pass and move mantra is evident in both teams across several seasons.
