< ![CDATA[i saw most of the game and as a result my analysis might not be entirely accurate.
almunia did well.
sagna and clichy looked a little rusty. hopefully as the season progresses they'll get their sharpness back, and quick.
djourou and gallas did okay. i saw the one mistake where twente's striker cleared the offside trap and almunia had to save on the edge of the 18 yard box. djourou made a few runs from our defence to their defence after being allowed the space. i really think djourou can be a worldclass defender. he's got the potential. i cant understand why senderos has played more games than him. he should be 3rd choice after toure and gallas. and if he can improve a bit, then he would be challenging for a regular 1st team spot.
eboue and walcott were missing for most of the game. twente's wingers were having a ball on the flanks. wenger switched them and eboue was playing at left mid for a while. i was expecting the worst but luckily we were just about surviving.
ramsey and denilson never had control of the midfield. they wern't bossing it around. and they couldnt be expected to just yet. they did well enough i suppose. not making too many mistakes and not having a huge impact on our attacking game. not being creative enough either.
adebayor and van persie - its hard to say but again they didnt see a lot of the ball. we had a lot of defending to do because we kept loosing the ball. but even so they were both average. didnt have much impact up front anyways.
premiership is only 2 days away and we're probably getting toure and nasri back but even so our midfield looks weak. its getting me worried.]]>
