Henry On The Bench

Arsene Wenger has taken a huge gamble in the North London derby by leaving out captain and top scorer, Thierry Henry.

Starting line up:-

van Persie

All of a sudden I don't feel so confident!!

1-1. Noooooooooo!, they got 4th now i guess ): not what I wanted, but that goal was unfair tottenham should have put the ball out of play, this is so annoying, no champions league in our new stadium?!! I can't stand it, spurs have got bolton home and west ham away next, can't really rely on them.

I guess the most important thing now is to win the Champions League. What ever happens in the League I see we will be in the UEFA cup so now all our attentions will be on the CL.

First of all, I have to draw attention to "gentleman" Arsene. He did not shake hands with Jol and he accused him of lying on TV. If that had been Mourinho he would be up for censure from the FA for putting the game into disrepute. If two Arsenal players run into each other and the ref, who was standing 2 feet away, waves play on why should the offense put the ball out? Didn't take them too long to get up did it? Also Lehmann had better be careful or he will get a red just when it will hurt most. Finally, Wenger was being cute by not starting Henry and he was caught with his pants down, so to speak. He gambled, he lost, end of story. Fascinating to hear Henry after the match. The way he was speaking said it all, the weight is off his shoulders and he can now move on without any guilt. Just wish he would be willing to move to SW6 instead of Barca!!!

West1, Jol proved himself to be a liar by saying ...... "I didn't even see it, I was watching Davids," Jol told Sky Sports 1. "The lad was going down and standing up, so for me, there was no problem. "Wenger was pretty upset about it, but I didn't even see it." Contardictary in terms no?? Plus Jol was straight on the pitch to shake hands with the ref, why should Wenger hang around to wait for him???

What did Henry say? and the tottenham 1st goal unfairly. I guess the only realistic way of next season CL is actually winning the CL this season.

I am really upset with Arsene Wenger today, he gambled in arguably the most important derby in our history. Whats wrong with the way he used to do it during our unbeaten run? get the game won then rest the important players. Also I feel we can have no complaints about the tottenham goal, last wednesday against villareal Freddie kicked the ball out of play during a similar incident and Wenger went ballistic. Who am I to question such abrilliant football mind, but today he got it wrong and maybe now we might have to pay the price.....but we CAN WIN the CL!!!!

outplayed at home? as soon as the big guns came on we tottaly outplayed you, fair enough you played better in 1st half, but at the end we overpowerd you. But I ain't a spurs supporter so I will say 1-1 is fair on how the game went overall, not that im happy with that.
