West Ham loanee Chamakh frustrated with home debut
Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh, currently on loan with West Ham, has revealed he was satisfied with his own performance against Queens Park Rangers but disappointed that his home debut ended in a 1-1 draw. "I think it was a good debut, from a personal point of view," he told the club's official website. "But we've basically lost two points because two goals would have enabled us to win the game at home, against a rival for survival. There you go, it's a shame because we had a lot of chances and we dominated the game.
"In view of how the game panned out, it's good to take a point, because we fell behind. From then on, we really pushed forward. They had to do a lot of defending and they defended very well.
"At the end, I think with perhaps about ten minutes left, we gave everything to win the game. So, we gave it our all and so I think, overall, both teams had to settle for the draw."
"It's becoming a familiar feeling [in front of goal]," added the Moroccan striker. "He [Cesar] has made two great saves against me, which is a shame, but it happens and hopefully they'll go in next time."
