I love the sound of crying Arsenal fans in the morning. Reminds me if not quite of victory, a hard earned point on the road.
Despite being by far the better side, on paper at least, Beautiful Arsenal breached the Wolves defences but once, thanks to a run timed to exquisite perfection from Gervinho.
Wolves matched thanks to a deflected shot looping to man-on-the-spot Steven Fletcher who guide the ball across the Arsenal goal into the opposite corner for their equaliser.
Perhaps those are the facts that North Londoners, feeling aggrieved at two points dropped, should remember in 2012.
Surely they should not want to recall their players` immediate reactions following Nenad Millijas' harsh sending off. Or some of their own more rudimentary tactics employed to stifle Wolves` rare attacks, particularly the two quick successive attempts to pacify Ronald Zubar in the penalty area during the first 45 minutes.
Had either challenge been on that most delicate of flowers Robin van Persie, one can only imagine Wolves may well have ended the match with 8 players instead of ten.
The statistics for the rest of the match are testament to Arsenals dominance in possession.
11 shots on target to 1.
651 passes completed, almost 3 times more than Wolves managed.
13 corners to 3, and Arsenal are still the most attractive team to watch in The Premier League.
Wolves however are one of the hardest working.
For Wolves, Wayne Hennessey and Roger Johnson in particular brought their A game. For long periods of time some of Arsenals stellar talent did not.
In the battle between the box and the horseshoe, the box would, at least on this occasion, seem to have provided the more harmonious of the two changing rooms in which to raise your battle cry.
Arsenal did remember to raise a battle cry, didn`t they?
