After Saturday's woeful performance, why on earth would Wenger want Upson? The guy was fully exposed as the yard dog we know him to be. Where was the leadership of the back four? What was he doing standing with his arm in the air whilst Van Persie set up the second? Why the Hell was he letting Bridge hold hands with him, leaving Walcott with the freedom of Upton Park down our left?
How many times did Upson concede possession? How many times, in contrast, did he complete a tackle? His stats must have been pretty awful over the course of the 90 minutes and, of the two, Tomkins looked much the better centre back. Unfortunately, we need Upson. But Arsenal? If Upson is the answer, then the Gunners really don't stand a cat in Hell's chance of winning the title.
Imagine, for one hilarious moment, Upson playing against Barcelona!
