Haha sorry I'm in a hotel room and don't have the Vital editing site with me. Even following the game from text stuff on news sites :( - so any update posted here is appreciated! Have to wait for Gkid to change our bench. :D

Trevor Francis and Rob Palmer on Sky. Tell me you are not blind please. You could see that the defender's foot made contact with Chamakh's. And even though Marouane made the most of it, it isn't the blatant dive that Palmer and Francis are making it out to be

Had to turn the commentary off after listening to those muppets spout all that bias arsenal bashing, what utter ballacks! Chamakh clearly had his a whack on his foot from a late challenge so its a penalty, no arguement. Then he gets a strong leading elbow to the head and they say 'why's he gone down'. shut the hell up!

The goal was down to bad marking, JD was edging his bets by covering the space infront and Clichy backed of the 6'5 guy but he probably wouldnt have had much chance anyway except the hope of putting him off his header. Based on play so far we should still win this though. 2 more in the second half please.

*****! Our bench looks alot better now....

We need to find a cutting edge or we could make things difficult for ourselves this game. I say we pull the gloves off; no more messing around. We must make the chances & possession count; and some calm heads around goal, please.

As for the commentaries, it is absolututely unbelievable how "un neutral" they sound. it is a shame, even counting the tackles made by Arsenal, as if to force the toga of a dirty team on us.

As for the game, that was a clear dive. MC was going down before the minimal contact was made. That will end up costing us in the long run.

2-0!!! Chamakh.

Could Arsenal Star Have Signed A Pre-Contract With AC Milan?

I'm certainly not saying that's the case, but with Jack Wilshere's contract at Arsenal still sitting on the table, it's a strange set of quotes from AC Milan's Gennaro Gattuso.
