Norwich 1-0 Arsenal
17.21 – Welcome along. We’re seven down, one to go as Arsenal travel to Norfolk for a meeting with Norwich City. If reports during the week are to be believed Ireland boss Giovanni Trapattoni has been told to attend more English games and will start with a trip to Carrow Road to watch Chris Hughton’s Irish contingent.
And the Italian will be happy to hear that both Wes Hoolahan and Anthony Pilkington start today. We’re ten minutes away from kick-off.
17.46 – Half chance for Norwich – Russell Martin robs himself a yard on the end-line and fires the ball across the goal but none of his team-mates have anticipated it. Arsenal easing themselves into the game at the moment.
18.10 – Arteta’s free-kick reaches Gervinho at the back post. The Ivorian tries to take the volley on first time but gets it all wrong. The Gunner cannot find any sort of rhyme in their play at the moment. Five minutes to play until half-time.
18.33 – Camera picks out Wenger, who unsurprisingly does look the happiest after his side’s first half display. Second half has just kicked off with no substitutions from either side at the break.
19.19 – Former Spurs man Sebastian Bassong has put his body on the line to make a superb block just now. With Gervinho about to pull the trigger, the defender threw himself in front of the ball.
Grant Holt has been withdrawn with Steve Morison taking to the pitch.
19.33 – Huge win for Chris Hugton and Norwich, who made it difficult for Arsenal right up to the final whistle. The Gunners were admittedly bad on the day and, in particular, lacked conviction in from of goal.
From an Irish point of view, Wes Hoolahan and Anthony did their chances of getting an Ireland call-up for the friendly against Greece next month, with fine performances in front of Giovanni Trapattoni.
That’s my lot, cheers for the company.
