Rather oddly, Theo Walcott says that Arsenal’s hopes of keeping a clean sheet last night against Bayern Munich were thwarted by the fates.
Regardless of how we might have played, it appears to have been written that the Germans would score. Speaking after the game, Walcott said, “We wanted to keep a clean sheet but it wasn’t meant to be. They didn’t create too much but they took their chances when they came. We need to dominate like we did in the second half. We need not to dwell on this result and when we go over there we’ve got to be positive.
“Last season against AC Milan we were 4-0 down and we did very well at home.We’ve got to show what we can do and play without any fear because we’ve got nothing to lose.
“We always felt that if we got the goal they might stumble a little bit, but they dealt with it quite well and they got that killer blow.
And the England winger reckons the team need to try and find a silver lining of some kind.
“We can’t be down in the dumps about it,” he continued. “We’ve got to try and take the positives and learn from it. I thought we fought quite well and battled for each other.”
I think it’s fair to say that destiny or a hidden power which controls future events wasn’t quite what Theo meant. It was probably just a bit of bland, footballer-speak. Talk a lot, say little.
Although it might bring some comfort to fans to know there is an evil force at work, preventing us from reaching our potential. We shall call him:
Damn him, damn him all to hell. Every time we try and win something, he releases he noxious ooze in the air, tonight. No wonder we’re doooooooooomed.6,083 views
