Some could look at Arsenal’s 0-0 tie with Sunderland as a positive.
“Hey, at least we got a point. Right?”
That person would probably get thrown off a cliff if he said that around enough Arsenal fans.
It would also sound like someone who didn’t actually watch Saturday’s opening contest of the 2012-13 Premier League season. Yes, Arsenal did what they always do. They thoroughly controlled possession (70%) for the majority of the game, they put up a ghastly number of shots (23) at the goal and nullified any counter-attack by a hapless Sunderland side. Yet, per usual, Arsenal was unable to actually score a goal on Saturday and the double zeroes on the scoreboard meant another terrible draw at Emirates Stadium.
