This new look team is taking some time to settle, but we look like we're gelling. Theo has been good.
gunnerkid107
Another frustrating day at Emirates. I tell you pre-injury Eduardo would not have missed that second chance. Very sad.
Sajit
Where is everyone?
julieloveshenry4ever
I dont know Julie, but its frustrating as hell.. everything I dont want to see in ARsenal of previous seasons seems to have resurfaced.
Sajit
Sigh. Every Saturday is Ground Hog Day.
julieloveshenry4ever
This game feels a bit odd,I dont know what to make of it
ajwb
Everything will come in the second half. You can't expect to make seven changes and have the team click right from the start.
gunnerkid107
Is there ANY action at all?
julieloveshenry4ever
Oddly enough, I'd say we're playing quite well actually. Getting plenty of shots and defending well as a team. Just not winning.
TPowell
We're creating quite a few half chances. Nothing to concrete yet, but just wait.
gunnerkid107
LOL!! I've never seen a match thread so empty. They must be all running round the centre circle or something!
julieloveshenry4ever
julie, Theo is absolutely embarrassing their right back. Also Sagna just took a corner? what the hell is going on? I'm with ajwb now, this is an odd game.
TPowell
Ok GK. What do Wolves look like?
julieloveshenry4ever
Ok GK. What do Wolves look like?
julieloveshenry4ever
Eboue is dilly dallying.. More directness please! And seriously , Rosicky is playing in his preferred position but is not doing anything to justify it.
Sajit
Knew it was empty. There's an echo! LOL!
julieloveshenry4ever
So....
julieloveshenry4ever
Half time in the wannabe carling cup match
ajwb
Isn't there any good news yet? :-)
julieloveshenry4ever
I think the emptiness of the thread is part my fault for not posting a preview and only getting this article up at kickoff. And Julie, Wolves just look like a bottom half team, no real threat at all. Their best threat came from a scuffed corner that almost went directly into the net, but Almunia punched it away.
gunnerkid107
Two words - frustration central.
Sajit
eboue was useless in the first half, and it would be nice to have a striker with a physical presence and/or confidence
TPowell
in other words NB, TP :) Another thing, if Wenger really wants to keep the likes of Fran, he should have given him a chance in these sort of matches. I think that boy has the quality to make it at Arsenal.
Sajit
I think this would be a great opportunity to give Vela a chance (for Eboue please). Haven't see the kid since god knows when, but we could get a rare Carlos sighting this afternoon.
gunnerkid107
Is it re-started yet?
julieloveshenry4ever
Yes and no changes were made at the break.
gunnerkid107
Heaven's sakes- are they having a Sunday kickabout or what? Don't they know we need the points? :-(
julieloveshenry4ever
Hey guys! Was making dinner and watching the game at the same time, too busy to post you see. Hmmm lacking a bit of sharpness in front of goal and getting into the right positions eh? Or was it that Theo didn't really look up to see where everyone was before he crossed or sent a ball in? Plenty of chances we're creating though, we'll get there!! Oh yeah GK, I think Vela would be able to make something happen down the left flank.
GoonerLou
Damn Eduardo barely slips after a smart reaction to a loose ball.
gunnerkid107
I think this game is down to our subs
ajwb
Well get them on now then. This is shocking. It's supposed to be a home game! Aaaaarrgghh.
julieloveshenry4ever
Right. Time to say it again. "Is there any good news yet?"
julieloveshenry4ever
Bendtner on! Thats good news
ajwb
Foul? Yes. Yellow? Yes. Red was very very harsh.
Rocky7
Red card to Wolves. Bad challenge, but should have only been a yellow.
gunnerkid107
F**K! Henry's not happy with just stepping on Theo's leg eh!?!??!? Horrendous tackle!!! >_<
GoonerLou
They said at the beginning that Andre Marinner has given the most red cards in the PL this year. true to form....
TPowell
Looked worse with the speed of Henry going through Tomas
ajwb
We got a bit lucky here. Let must take advantage of such luck
gunnerkid107
Yeah yellow card offence, but that's justice done considering his earlier offence which went unpunished. He should've gone anyway.
GoonerLou
Nasri on for Song.
gunnerkid107
Mancienne and Hahnemann have been very good
gunnerkid107
I have a feeling he could red card 11 Wolves players and we still wouldn't put a ball in the net.
julieloveshenry4ever
Aaarrrgghhh. My lucky charm is broken!! Isn't there any good news at all?
julieloveshenry4ever
Vela?!?!
ajwb
no julie, not at all, we've had a million chances it seems, the ball just won't go in...
TPowell
OK here we go again: Is there any good news at all???
GoonerLou
What a horrible week. To think that just before this time last week, I was happy as larry. Same end to the season. Can't beat 10 man Wolves at home. Pathetic.
julieloveshenry4ever
TV and Sivestre swap, TV now an attacking LB
TPowell
The final ball :(
ajwb
How long is left?
julieloveshenry4ever
bull ******** *****
Sajit
5mins
ajwb
No goals, no hope of anything. I'm going into hibernation until after Tuesday night is over. God knows where we will end up in the league now.
julieloveshenry4ever
Very strange game this....
GoonerLou
I guess there was only so long we could keep up this scoring in the last ten minutes. It's disapointing, but it was a long shot for winning the title. It was a good effort from the boys.
Rocky7
******** walcott
gunnerkid107
Bottlers once again. It's nice to be back.
julieloveshenry4ever
WTF was that
ajwb
YEAAAHHHHHHHHHH
gunnerkid107
HAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rocky7
BENDTNERRRRRR!!!!!!!! *****KK YEAHHHHHH!!!!
gunnerkid107
I claim an assist for that goal. I really do.
Rocky7
***** IN YYYYYYYYYYYYES
ajwb
Bendtner!!!!!!!! WE LOVE YOU
ajwb
Can you ******** believe it?!?!??!
gunnerkid107
Oh dear me!!!! What a painful 90 mins!!
GoonerLou
Have you ever? No, I've never?
Rocky7
haha, rocky, I'll claim an assist, I turned off the game after the Walcott miss. You're welcome Gooners!!! by the way, what type of goal was it?
TPowell
After seeing your comment, Rocky, I thought maybe the broadcast you were watching was ahead of mine and the game had finished 0-0. YEAHHHHHH!!!!!
gunnerkid107
Phew Fking hell
ajwb
YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Gun 'Em Down
Bendtner header TP!
gunnerkid107
why skip the whole 90 minutes only to score at the very dead end?
49ers
Cross from Sagna Nikky got above the CB and headed in .UUUUUF
ajwb
The players who have made it count this season are the ones who got the most stick last season.
Professor Calculus
thanks GK! who got the assist?
TPowell
GK - I've proved time after time that football makes me look silly ever time I speak. It was a genuine attempt to save our season. lol
Rocky7
I had literally scribbled down 'OK title gone' in my little notepad. But just 2 seconds later, Rosicky carved out that opportunity by sending the diagonal ball to the right which Theo set up for Sagna to cross - and what a great cross finally! - I just knew Nick would head it in!!!!!
GoonerLou
I told you TP ... I did.
Rocky7
To make things happier we're a point closer to the title today, and Sp*rs got spanked by Sunderland ... gave away 3 penalties. They did only score one of them but still beat Spuds 3-1. lol
Rocky7
YESSSSS!
Tom14
Ha! Agree Lou. I had "season over" in my head too. That was some serious added time....
the yza
TPowell, it was an inch perfect cross from Sagna! What a vital win...we always do it the hard way. Sajit, can you please wait till the final whistle before making incessant negative comments! Julie, please always be on this thread on all matchdays! Thanks
Deltaforce
I'd love to sit down and have a nice chat with Griddo right now ;)
gunnerkid107
and don't forget Man U dropping 3 Rocky (even if that means Chelsea are still 3 ahead of us)!
TPowell
Icing on the cake was watching spuds getting Bent out of shape...ha haa haaa
Deltaforce
Like a charm. I can't believe that ;-)
julieloveshenry4ever
The draw for Chelsea Man Utd would have been perfect, but the Chelsea win was the second best option. We're still in with a chance and these boys have proved that a slight chance is all they need. These season never ceases to amaze me.
Rocky7
haha, so julie's and Rocky's pessimist comments worked, and so to did my turning off of the broadcast in disgust... guess we'll have to keep this up ;-)
TPowell
seriously!! i applaud the effort but against better opposition you will have a tough time!!cannot wait for the spurs game though its gonna be electric!!
dozzy
I still can't believe that. Had to take the negativity to a whole new level too! (Sorry guys) plus united and spuds drop 3. BONUS!!
julieloveshenry4ever
Dozzy ...... you mean like Barcelona?
Rocky7
Only three points off Chelsea and one off United :)
Tom14
What a pathetic performance at home! You lot will drop more if you continue to play like this..
JT_daniel
"What a pathetic performance at home! You lot will drop more if you continue to play like this.. " We battered them.
Tom14
23 shots to 3 is pretty pathetic, but not for Arsenal.
gunnerkid107
JT_D, our win must have hurt you bad. Great then!
Deltaforce
Sounds like someone is afraid. After the inuries we've suffered and the epic effort against Barcelona I think a bit of a struggle is to be expected (not that you'd know having been knocked out). We keep on plugging away and getting the points. I'm still laughing at the Vital Chelsea comments after Wenger said he thought Chelsea would drop points. "That maybe true Mr Wenger, but your little team won't be the ones to benefit". Still makes me chuckle.
Rocky7
Considering a draw preceded the the draw with Barca, this win precedes a win at the nou camp... ^_^ B52 and N8 to score... :p
Omogusii
solid logic there, omogusii ;-)
TPowell
I think u guys were unlucky not to have had this game wrapped up long since..On the bright side, Chelsea boy Mancienne had a pretty good game
samuraisuraj
Beat farca, then start flopping.
ACLamp
Nick's header was the 10th late goal (in the last 10 mins) that we scored in the past 9 games hehehe..
GoonerLou
Deltaforce, methinks Julie and my negative comments won the game :). No kidding.
Sajit
Jesus, Barca are resting a lot of players and still destroying Bilbao... well maybe they're using up all they're goals for the week ;-)
TPowell
Fingers crossed TP , Ibra is out I heard.
Sajit
Sajit, he's not on the bench, not sure why though.
TPowell
Cheer up you got there in the end. You have had so many bad injuries I think you have done bloody well hanging in with a chance. Good luck.
SFC Forever
Considering the most crippling devastating injury list i can remember with 3 mightily draining encounters inside a week, I think the 2-2 we got on Wednesday and the way they kept at it searching for this winner, are hugely to the credit of this team. Well done boys, well done. I heard Ibrahimovic is out for Tuesday :)
julieloveshenry4ever
Thanks SFC forever. Much appreciated.
Deltaforce
