Another Bright Spot: The Gunners

Thought I'd hope for some cheerfulness from Arsenal, so I checked out the Premier League Review Show after getting the Steelers loss out of my system.

They delivered, with a 2-0 win over West Ham to stay on top of the league table. Both goals were just amazing. Eduardo's in the 2nd minute was a textbook case of controlling the ball with the chest and then knocking it into the back of the net with one swift swing of the leg. Adebayor's was a very slick job of splitting defenders and getting past the keeper to put just enough spin on the ball to get it to carom off the far post and go in. Man, that was some nifty stuff. A nearly impossible angle, but he made it.
