The Whores haven't beaten us fair and square since 2004

Since 2004

First game under JM, 2-2 draw at Highbury
Second game under JM 0-0 draw at the Bridge
Third game under JM 1-0 at the Bridge, an offside goal towards the end

Fourth game under JM 0-2 at Highbury, RVP's perfectly onside goal disallowed very early on, would have changed the game otherwise

Fifth game under JM The CC Final, Drogba's offside equaliser
Sixth and Seven were draws

And yesterday another offside goal ruined us.

Will be f****g hard now, as usual we make things difficult for ourselves. We need to win ALL games now and hope Man Ure and the Rent-Boys drop points.

Arsenal 1-1 Boro:

Another drab performance, the ref was shocking especially when Adebayor scored a valid goal which was wrongly ruled out for offside.

The performance though didnt really merit a win either, had lots and lots of possesion but did nothing at ALL. Created very few decent chances and Boro defended well. Hleb was shocking, as was Hleb and Adebayor, and conitnuing the trend the team showed some urgency after 85 minutes, before that it was just walking around with the ball, casually. The tempo and penetration were poor.

Adebayor, Hleb and Cesc need rest. They've been playing pretty much non-stop since the season started. We need wingers and something that'll stop our players getting injured every 2 mins. Thats 4 draws in a row now and United can move 3 pts clear if they win their game in hand, against Bolton at home on Wednesday. Chelsea will be level on points with us if they win their game in hand.

We need to step up and be counted NOW.

Milan outclassed

What a magnificent result. This was the same Milan team who smashed Man Ure last year and beat them 3 years ago. Yet as usual we don't get any credit from the press. According to whom Man Ure are still the 'favourites'. Let the c***s under-estimate us, they'll be shut up for good at the end of the season.

Cesc was superb last night. If he plays like that against Man Ure on 12th April he'll wipe the floor with Man Ure's midfield. Gallas was immense so was Flamini. Ade was sensational and for Theo Walcott's doubters his running and an assist should shut up many of them. He did last in 5 minutes what Pato couldn't do over 180 minutes: running behind the defence and creating a goal.

Will go to JJB next week, should be a blinder considering the lads' confidence.

Come on Arsenal, lets shut up the c***s all over.

Arsenal 1-1 Aston Villa

Rescued in the dying seconds by Bendtner, I'll admit I'm not a big fan of his and with him mostly celebrating his goal alone people will again talk about how he doesnt get along with the rest of the team but thats a different matter.

Arsenal were very poor today and probably deserved nothing from the game, and now we're going to start hearing things about how Arsenal have bottled it whereas when united got outplayed at Shit hart lane and got a draw everyone was on about how it was a sign of champions. Today was a very poor performance granted, but I'm sure we'll bounce back.

Diaby out on the left once again looked lost, Walcott faded away as the game went on and the midfield were poor. Hleb was poor and his passing was shocking, Cesc's passing was poor and he missed a good chance at the end of the first half. Flamini did ok. The defence struggled against Villa's pace and they always looked like they might score when they broke, and Almunia bailed us out a couple of times. Their goal would have been offside had Clichy been awake and been in line with the other 3 defenders, Senderos unluckily scored an OG and now people are going to be on his back again.

I'm normally disappointed with a draw (as any Arsenal fan is) but after getting a draw today when we didnt really deserve it shows the team never gives up, and THAT is a sign of champions. I'm confident our performances are going to improve, with RVP and Rosicky returning hopefully by the time we play Wigan.

Come on Arsenal.
