    Absolutely horrible performance by Arsenal, nothing was working, everybody seemed to be off their game except Almunia who once again was great and the real hero of the game.

    Was good to see Diaby back, but he was very pedestrian out there, Im sure once hes back to match fitness will be better. Senderos was once again found out numerous times and Id hate to think if either Gallas or Toure go down for an extended period of time in the run home if he is the best Arsenal have to cover. Hes simply not up to the standard of the big 4 in England.

    Hleb was really horrible in midfield and Im very surprised Wenger didnt sub him. From tonights performance if Arsenal are to be any chance at all off progressing midweek they need Hleb to improve 10 fold and some involvement from Toure and Van Persie,

    Thank god for Nicklas Bendtner!

    Man Utd won against Fulham 3-0, so we're only 1 point ahead of them..

    Next five games for each club:

    Arsenal: Boro (h), Chelsea (a), Bolton (a), Liverpool (h), Man Utd (a)

    Man Utd: Derby (a), Bolton (h), Liverpool (h), Aston Villa (h), Boro (a)

    Yeah I know but we can beat all of them.

    We beat Chelsea 1-0 last time we played em, Bolton are having a pretty sh*t season and don't have Anelka anymore, Boro beat us last time but we can beat them next time (it's at home and we've only lost once at the Emirates in all competitions since it opened), we drew with the Scousers and Man U 2-all last times we played them in the EPL.

    Grrrrrrr

    Was away and missed it all. NP screwing around with the mozz once again. We'll win 2-0...yeah ok! Just shut up before games.

    F*ck we have a hard run home. Why do we choke like this. That's one of the big differences between us and Manure. They can dominate and hold that lead. That 4-1 loss really gave us a mental beating. We will need to fight harder than we ever have before.

    true dat, all im sayin that we have been hit hard with injuries in the worst time, but i still have confidence in the team and that point on the weekend against villa could be crucial for the title race

    We have been on fire in the first half. We dominated the last 20min and really should have scored. Fabregas hit the bar, Hleb should just have a crack once in a while instead of looking for the perfect through ball and he was also booked for diving :lol: Bullsh*t call by the way.

    Anyhow. We need to keep up this pressure and turn it into a goal. Big, big, big half this one.

    Awsome end to the game, they just ran out of legs and we run over them in the end, a very good win and this may be the game to get us back on track.

    We always seem to go pretty well against the Italian sides for some reason, even in Italy.

    Great performance by the Arsenal. Should boost the confidence levels back-up after a couple of shaky weeks.

    I only saw the first 20 min but Diaby looked good considering it was his first game in a while and Theo is starting deliver on his promise, I hope he gets a chance up front at some point.

    I have a feeling the return of Diaby and Van persie along with the new found confidence of Theo will have a big say in our EPL hopes though I'm not as confident about the Champions league, might be a year to early.

    Have to say, despite my natural hatred for Arsenal, I sure don't mind watching them when they're on song.

    But why in God's name is that useless hack Eboue considered a first team regular? I can be enthralled by the brilliance of Arsenal, and then in charges Eboue for one of his needlessly reckless challenges or ludicrous dives, and it reminds me all over again why I hate the scummers.

    His days on the flank are numbered with Theo improving all the time and Rosicky still to come back from injury.
