West Bromwich Albion – Arsenal – Premier League – 13th May 2012

Arsenal assistant manager, Pat Rice, on his way to be sacrificed after final game with the Gunners

At fault for all three goals, former Tottenham goalkeeper Marton Fulop topped off the season with West Brom by gifting the Gunners all three points at the Hawthorns in Roy Hodgson’s farewell game.

In a re-run of Arsenal’s game against Norwich last week, Yossi Benayoun scored early before his side buggered it up. Shane Long and Graham Dorrans had the Baggies in the lead with just 15 minutes gone before chunky Brazilian Andre Santos smacked home the equaliser. Hungarian Fulop could have done better for both Arsenal’s first two goals but his worst blunder was to come on 54 minutes, when he punched a Gunners’ corner in the wrong direction, with Laurent Koscielny prodding home a vital winner.

So Hodgson leaves the Hawthorns after a decent season to prepare for EURO 2012 with England. While for Arsene Wenger, third place and the title of the top team in London is a superb achievement after a dismal start, but a summer of squad strengthening in surely still in order.
