Arsenal 0-0 Sunderland – Different Faces But The Same Frustrations At The Emirates (Photos & Highlights)

By Alan Duffy

Arsenal 0-0 Sunderland – Premier League – August 18 2012

With RVP no doubt rolling around naked in wads of Mancunian cash this afternoon, his former team kicked off their 12/13 campaign with a rather trademark frustrating showing at the Emirates.

New boys Lukas Podolski and Santi Cazorla both started, with the impish Spaniard impressing in a scheming no.10 role. However, despite having the usual majority of possession and the best of the chances, the Gunners failed to find the back of the net. Sub Olivier Giroud was guilty of the worst miss of the game, skewing wide from 12 yards.

For Sunderland it was a well-drilled, satisfying start to the new season. For Arsene Wenger and co, it was a disappointing result. However, with the new boys still needing time to bed in, and a few more signings surely on the way (particularly with Alex Song off to warm the bench for Barca), things should only get better for the north Londoners.

    How fun it is to watch a team play against the 10-0-0 formation

  2. glass is 3/4 empty says:

    in fairness, we weren’t so much missing Van Persie like the media love to shout, solely due to the fact that any human being with at least half a leg should have scored a few of the chances we did create.

    saying that, it is quite ironic that our 3 best chances fell to the new kids at school; podolsk, cazorla + Giroud.

  3. first game in no rvp or song.we should still have won on the chances we fluffed again.carzola looks fast and good on the ball.if we get the new signings that were all readin about we may have a decent season.the team still have to get used to playing together.
