RVP playing in the midfield in Cesc's role? I suppose he has the talent.
Looks like 4-4-2 with vela and Theo wide.
Agreed Iceman, realised that was probably the case after actually thinking about it... The first time we've played that formation in 2 seasons, right?
He knows Wigan will attack so he has gone for a very attacking team, looks good.
If we get past Wigan, are we going to face the winners of Man Utd WHU in next round/?
Awful miss from Bendtner. Free header from 3 yards out and he completely misses the ball. Wouldn't normally laugh at him but he deserves it after his recent comments about deserving to start more games.
Vela vela vela........ patish
Oh dear. Another awful miss. Brilliant van Persie backheel sets up Vela one on one with the 'keeper, and, of all people, Carlos Vela misses a chip.
******** hell, seems like no one wants to be out there, both fans and players. frustrating
Gooner SA
I was fully expecting Carlos to put it in, it's his trademark chip! Argh..
Nicky B! Great delivery from Theo too!! :D
Oh.. own goal that was.. :O
ooh thoes two backheals from RVP was ... mmm .. ORGASMIC ..shame about vela touches
Gooner SA
Excellent by Szczesny! The reflexes he showed for that close range deflection was unreal.
Own goal or not, I'm just ******** happy to be one up, especially considering the Hammers are up 2 on United.
So much for "live audio on ATVO or the match highlights will have to suffice" for those of us not at the Grove. I wonder how everybody here is watching the match? Lol.
Hehehe indeed gkid. How am I watching it? I did try ATVO to be fair, but as always it's dodgy, so sorry.
I did have a unmentionable stream but the audio sounded like vuvuzelas and the picture froze,cba.
Agree he is feeling his way back but Theo must improve on his decision making. This game was tailor made for him to enjoy, but he is coming short. Good to be 1 up and we haven't even hit 2nd gear yet.
...Watching (flipping between) both games here. The joys of Cable TV subscription.
Oh dear, what's going on? My you-know-what has no audio. RvP got shot in the head?!?
RVP back up Lou. Don't know what happened. Wigan still very much in this.
Bendtner !!! Daylight, at last.
Not anymore though. Bendtner and Vela have been ***** all night, but they combine nicely here for the second goal.
Yayyyy great movement this! :D
***** me, 4 for West Ham!
Vela does deserve a goal now, just on the number of misses he's had tonight; and RvP too, for his matured display.
What is happening with Man u?
Two near misses again....Vela. What does he need to do to get the goal he so needs?
Jack Wilshere and RvP off for Eastmond and Nasri.
Jay Emmanuel Thomas should be coming on instead of Nasri. How many more goals does JET have to score in the reserves to get some time in the Carling Cup?
The boss heard you Brice!
Would have liked to have seen him given a little more time, but maybe next year for the big man.
"Emmanuel Eboue goes to the far side to come to the aid of the steward" Haha.
Adequate first half, dominant second. A lot of good scoring chances created, good performance I'd say, all things considered.
Hahaha what's that thing about? Did a fan go onto the pitch? I couldn't see that bit clearly on my you-know-what. Sounded funny there.
Hard to understand how we're scoring so many goals, our finishing is awful at times lol..
No disrespect to the remaining contenders but it will seem fate is conspiring to hand the CC to us. It looks like it is Arsenal's to lose now, doesn't it?
note to teams out there- you can't win anything with kids.. just kids with experience
Three fans on the pitch. One wanted to shake Wenger's hand, the other two were just idiots. Anyways, good night for Arsenal. Any screw up now in this competition would be devastating.
Just hope we won't get Villa in the semis, although I'm confident we can beat anyone over two legs. Advantage Arsenal. Now let's see if the team can deal with this amount of pressure and hopefully use it as a springboard for bigger things. :D
another clean sheet for Szczesny
You haven't won any thing yet with these kids
