Er so Fran isn't suspended. Though with a bit of luck, we're soaking up the pressure and attacking with some purpose when we can.

Was Mark Hughes yelling at Arsene? lol
02/12/2009 20:33:00
Hughes is desperate, trying to get players sent off because he can see how WEAK the ref is and that he will only book the youngsters and not big egos like Tevez who's foul on Rosicky was the easiest yellow of the game.
02/12/2009 20:36:00
Besides Tevez's tackle on Rosicky, I thought Foy has had decent game so far. Bellamy was desperately looking for the contact from Song.

Hughes is doing everything he can to save his job ..... You can't blame him, but it does make him look ****ish. Ref is a moron. Traore is living on the edge. Vela is playing quite well, with a bit more support I can see him having a bit of joy. One thing that does scare me is that how clumsy Song can and how he's playing at centreback ..... nervewarcking to say the least.
02/12/2009 20:44:00
Yeah Gkid but I hated the way the commentators kept saying it looked like it's a foul from Song on second viewing or something. Anyone watching Valencia during our half time? They really shouldn't be playing in the Europa League. Oh well.

As a side note did David Platt actually play for us? Why do all our ex-players who turn to punditry turn out to be complete knobheads?
02/12/2009 20:49:00
Actually, that's a little unfair ... Smudger and Dixon are good guys.
02/12/2009 20:49:00
You can see Booboo is a really popular guy. Pro bench-warmer Robinho couldn't resist the temptation to hug him. ;)

Any noticed that Ol' Purple Nose has sent Wenger his lucky flashing mac to wear as a good luck charm?
