Arsenal beat Shrewsbury 3-1 in the Carling Cup tonight.
We went 1-0 down, then scored three goals via Gibbs, Oxlade-Chamberlain and Benayoun, each of those players getting their first goal for the club.
Due to the fact the match wasn’t televised I didn’t see any of it so if you’re expecting an in-depth report I’m afraid you’re in the wrong place.
However, look at it like this: it could have been on the television, I could have watched it, we could have lost, a large space rock could have landed on Oxlade-Chamberlain’s head and then as the medics were trying to save his life Godzilla could have crashed through the west stand looking to take the ultimate revenge on Ryo Miyaichi whose grandfather had electrocuted him right in the balls in a 1950s B movie and with one blast of fire from his massive snout he could have incinerated tens of thousands of Arsenal fans before eating Arsene Wenger in one gulp leading the panic stricken board to replace him with John Gregory.
I think I know which you’d prefer. Leaving aside the coolness of the Godzilla thing, who is something of a personal hero of mine, the whole John Gregory angle would be really, really bad. And when I say coolness, I just mean the coolness of a gigantic monster stomping round the Grove and not the deaths of thousands of Gooners and the Arsenal manager.
So, we go into the 4th round and we’ve won a game. Seems ok to me.
