Martin Taylor...what a c***

What a chance we've fu**ing missed today to go 8 points clear. Man Ure are leading the sh*t Geordies as I type....

F**k the game, I feel so sorry for Eduardo. The lad must have been looking forward to the Euros and Arsenal's CL run and now his careers' been threatened by a t**t like Taylor. Dudu's foot was hanging off in half, I wished I hadn't seen the picture.

Get well soon Eduardo.

Arsenal vs Milan, 19:45

PREDICTION: 1-0 to the Gunners, Fabregas with the goal

Manchester United 4-0 Arsenal:

No excuses for this one.

They played a weaker side than we did, and we had some of our best players playing in Fabregas, Hleb and Gallas.

The whole defence was utterly shite, fullbacks got turned inside out again and again. Gallas and Toure were shite.

In midfield, we had 10 men anyway in the first half with Eboue. Cesc was poor, Gilberto, as he has been this season, was shite. Eduardo on the left did more than the whole team put together in the first half. Also, I think its about time Wenger finally realised his position is NOT on the left. He still did OK.

Bendtner upfront couldnt do anything since he never had the ball. Eboue getting sent off in the 2nd half finished it off, if it wasn't already finished.

Lehmann was our man of the match. He made some good saves, and came out of his area several times to stop one-on-ones (our defence held a high line but the 4 defenders never 'synced' together, and were never in line).

Woeful performance, and the experienced players looked like they just didnt care. They showed some of ours fans clapping at the end, that was wrong, the complete gutless performance by our lads deserved booing. Humiliations in both the cups, first by Sp*rs and now United. (At least United won't be bringing out a DVD.)

I dont think this will have an effect on our league performance and hopefully we can keep going on like we did after the battering by Sp*rs.

Lets hope for a better performance against Milan. We need to take a lead over there, without conceding at home. If they get an away goal or two like they did against United last season, then we'd be in deep trouble.

Need to bounce back well for Wednesday. Come on Arsenal.

Arsenal 2-0 Blackburn:

Arsenal took the golden oppurtunity of going 5 points clear of United and 8 points clear of Chelsea after a deserved victory over Blackburn Rovers at the Emirates Stadium. Senderos and Adebayor got on the scoresheet for us.

I didnt watch the game but managed to listen to most of the 2nd half on the radio and by the sounds of we had them on the backfoot for most of the game and Lehmann was rarely called into action. Fabregas had to play on the right side due to injuries and gilberto and Flamini played in the centre with Hleb on the right. According to our fans Arsenal were sensational for the first 20 mins and should've scored about 2, then blackburn did put some pressure on us till the end of the half. In the 2nd half it was all Arsenal but it was nervous till we got the 2nd because as long as your 1 up the other team can get a goal and it only takes a second to score a goal but Adebayor popped up to score a goal and he now has 19 goals in the league so far (same amount as Henry apparently during the 03/04 season).

Next game for us is the FA cup game against United, I see Arsene resting quite a few players for this one. To beat United at Old trafford every player has to give 200% and Im not sure whether our first 11 can give 200% against United AND against Milan only a few days later.

Anyway good weekend for us. Come on Arsenal.

Arsenal with a Golden chance as Utd f*** up

What a chance, with 12 games to go; if we win then I reckon we'll be pole favourites for the title. I mean it'll take a major co*k-up to squander a 5 point lead wth 12 games to go. Saying that we did mess it up in 2002-03...

We'll thrash Rovers tommorow, Come on Arsenal.

City 1-3 Arsenal


Easy in the end, they had 2 shots on target the whole game and rarely threatened.

Adebayor as immense again, awesome touches and control and scored 2 goals. 21 for the season ! Eduardo did well and scored a good goal.

Clichy made a mistake (first time in his Arsenal career?) which resulted in a goal and their only chance. The defence was good otherwise. Hleb and Diaby were OK.

Cesc was better towards the end of the game. We beat a team who hadn't lost at home yet.

Top of the league for now.
