‘Arsenal engine stalling.’ Fans react to tough win against QPR


According to Twitter I was the only person who couldn’t find a working live stream to watch this match. Though, from what I garnered by my own timeline I didn’t miss much in the first half at all. Many were surmising it would end in a 0-0 draw.

Apart from Gabriel Paulista getting injured (welcome to the club) I didn’t see anything that jumped out at my. So imagine how glad I was when my phone informed me of Olivier Giroud’s 64th minute goal – which happens to be the tenth goal he’s scored in his last 14 games. Shortly thereafter, in the 69th minute, Alexis Sanchéz scored his first goal for 620 minutes. Arsenal are two goals up within the space of minutes and as far as we’re concerned the game’s over.

That is until Charlie Austin scores in the 82nd minute and suddenly the three points Arsenal fans thought were in the bag are looking more precarious by the minute. Who was to blame? I honestly couldn’t tell. One minute it was Kieran Gibbs, then in the very next, Laurent Koscielny’s name was being bandied around as the villain of the piece. As usual the Arsenal players kept the fans in suspense as to the final outcome of the game well into the four minutes of added time. Luckily though, on this occasion, the result ended up in our favour.
