Arsenal Starting XI: Mannone, Eboue, Gallas, Vermaelen, Clichy, Song, Fabregas, Rosicky, Bendtner, Eduardo, Diaby

Good to see two creative midfielders for change. I predict a solid match from us, more than likely a comfortable win. Diaby will probably play well, because he always does against the ***** teams

That's ok Lou, Mike will have plenty of time to cry into his beer this weekend when Man Utd spank 7 bells out of the Arab Chelsea. Cult zero AdeTheWhore will be spending 14weeks on the sidelines, probably calling 'Beyonce' etc and engineering a move for the summer. Hughes will no doubt defend his lack of tactics (read: endorsed GBH) with some more moronic drivel. Such a shame, I actually think some of his first set of purchases (Kompany, de Jong) were excellent - and I generally quite like Citeh fans (when I've been there).

Eduardo might have scored the winning goal but he didn't have a great game. Still he can be excused as it hasn't been long since he has returned from injury. Bendtner worked hard and showed good movement upfront. I would definitely drop Clichy, his decision making has been awful for a player of his age and experience. Eboue was back to his usual form, Gallas didn't play well. Only Vermaelen did well in defence. Cesc's free kicks and corners were terrible. Only Rosicky had a good game in midfield, looked busy and inventive.

Not a great spectacle, but some have said we should start to win without being too stylish. We need to go back to winning ways and fast as I felt there was a confidence problem at times, especially in defense. Fab and the team need a variation to our dead ball (free kick) routines; the crosses tonight were disappointing, at times. Still, three points in the bag. Hey, this game was probably the most enthralling (of the games tonight) as most teams had under par performances and few goals to show.

31 August 2001 a group of City fans arrested for racist chanting in a fixture against Bradford City. Goatboy, I have absolutely no axe to grind with City fans whatsoever, the best banter I've ever had has been at your place and I've always regarded your support highly. I still do. (The response on Saturday of "we were here when we were *****" was a good comeback and true to boot). City fans have never been anything but a good craic and have always been accomodating for us and that hasn't changed. Fortunately, I don't regard yours or fifthcolumnblue's idiotic hysteria as the norm with City fans and don't doubt Gooners and City fans will continue to enjoy some good banter in the future. Now do us all a favour, ***** off and grow up. This forum has spent bloody millions of man hours fighting off the little England brigade chiding us for our foreign players and fanbase. Only Mr. Fear will know for sure, but I'mwilling to bet money Vital Arsenal also has one of the most culturally diverse memberships of all the Vital sites.
