Ars 3-1 Oly - Greeks nearly rain on our Piraeus

It was a win and at first glance, it looks a comprehensive win. It wasn't.

It was a jerky, clunky performance that in truth want very good. But we won "ugly" and I'd rather win "ugly" than lose playing well.

Pluses for the night include the weekly praise for the full-backs. Kieran Gibbs has been excellent this season, but I cannot believe the natural progression of Carl Jenkinson. He looked assured and confident going forward and back.

The other plus (sort of) is Gervinho, he gets masses of stick for his control, but I'd always rather a player makes a mistake by doing something positive than negative, and throw into that the fact he never goes missing and you have someone I can fully get behind.

Olympiakos were determined, well organised and very unlucky to leave London empty-handed and I can only hope we have wrapped up qualification by the time we go to Greece.

West Ham next, that means the Walrus and Restarts. Deep Joy. Per better be stocked on Lemsips.
