Part 21 – look for the silver lining

March 21, 2010

A mixed day for Arsenal as they went top of the table with a 2-0 win over London cloggers West Ham, but which saw Thomas Vermaelen become the first Arsenal player to be sent off in a League game since Cliff Bastin inadvertently fouled Stanley Matthews in 1935. 

Other positives from the game included the improving performances of Sol Campbell who followed up last week’s totally innocuous curtailing of Kamil Zayatte’s season and professional foul on Vennegoor of Hesselink with a completely accidental late hack at Junior Stanislas which saw the Gunners’ man receive a ridiculously harsh yellow card (above).
