eyes on the prize

last time i went to the emirates to see arsenal play i talked about the sense of deja vu i had from the old days visiting highbury. well i went again last night and had another familiar feeling, although not really in a positive way. i was sat in almost exactly the same seat, watching us play exactly the same team (chelsea) and once again watching us fail to score and beat them. it was a shitty game, against a shitty team, refereed by a shitty official in really shitty weather. yeah i wasn't so happy with the evening. i took this shot at the game, or more accurately i took these three shots, and comped them together in photoshop. partly i decided to do that to make the boring game look a bit more exciting, but also because i liked how it seems like all the players are focussed on the same ball. in reality they're not, as the ball wasn't even in the frame in 2 out of the 3 images, but it was for one of them. so can you work out which players are really looking at the ball?

 

you can find out if you're right by looking at the original
