I, Keeper, have a new idea about a blog. Each week, I will watch a football match and during it, I will do a commentary. Then a day or two later, I'll sum it all up in a blog. This week I'll just be telling you about my game of the week. It was Arsenal vs. Fulham (just because I called it the Game of the Week, it doesn't mean it was the best). So I'll briefly sum it up for you. So here it goes. Tell what you think about it.
In the early going of the London Derby, Fulham looked good. They had sustained offence for a good 10 minutes, but just couldn't pull a goal out of Arsenal. They had the ball on Arsenal's defensive, but really couldn't really get a good shot off. At about the 15 minute point, the momentum had turned all the way to Arsenal. Once they began to settle in, they really weren't going to be stopped.
In the 19th minute, Arsenal's left back Clichy got to the end line and put in a marvelous cross that Emmanuel Adebayor had to put into the net. That made it 1-0. For the next 20 minutes or so, Arsenal were still in control and then Adebayor finished off another header in the 39th to make it 2-0 to Arsenal. Fulham's only consistent player in the 1st half, or really the whole game, was American Clint Dempsey. I really liked his play, and we should see him with a bigger Premier League club next year when Fulham are relegated. He used great technique to dribble by the Arsenal defence a few times, but he just didn't get any help. I think he will definitely be back in the Premier League. I mean he has scored 6 goals for the second-worst team in the league.
The second half was much of the same. Fulham brought in a couple of new faces and it helped a little for a little while, but eventually it didn't matter. Late in the match, Rosicky of Arsenal finsihed a third and final shot for Arsenal. Arsenal looked very good, they kept pace with Man. U. The second-best Premier League club absolutely can't slip-up again, or they are done for. I truly believe that. They didn't play a very pretty game, but they did finish off their chances and they kept a lot of possession. So if you're an Arsenal fan, you should be encouraged slightly with the result. They did play well, but against the second-worst side in the Premier League.
As the weekend draws closer, I will reveal which match I will comment and sum up for you. Well, until next time, this has been Keeper. Have a nice day.
