Change to most recent first
So glad Wenger has stuck with the same backline. And RVP is in good form at the moment so thumbs up there too.

The changes aren't in the places I thought they'd be ..... but that's still a very strong side. Good picks by AW. Arshavin to score two goals and we'll get our little Russian back!

To say I'm happy with the lineup would be an understatement. I heard Nasri has a little bit of an ankle knock so I can understand that change, but other than that, I'm glad we've only made 3 changes.

Alan Hansen just made his first funny comment in history. Matt Holland said "It's important Ipswich get to halftime without conceding" Hansen retorted "I think it's more important they get to full time without conceding" lol

Its a good line up but one missing attribute is a turn of pace which both Nasri and Walcott have. Song in his current form is a significant missing piece but hopefully Denilson will have a good day today. The presence of Sagna is reassuring.

It must be said Ipswich is defending well, but we still have a lot more in us, yet. A 19 year old is bossing the midfield tonite. Great stuff from Jack, so far.

That bell end Hansen talking about continentals bringing diving into the game. Not only did Cesc say 'i lost my balance' to the ipswich player, but he never appealed for a penalty. Now whether he did or took a tumble then realised what he'd done and dint appeal only he will know.

Great day all around - Arsenal going to new Wembley for the first time, Adepaymore sent packing, sexist Gray sacked - except Sagna. My you-know-what wasn't great and I didn't see it. What happened there? Do you think he's okay? Sagna's been a beast for us this season! Eboue should be able to do a job against Huddersfield though. Just hope Bacary isn't badly injured.

Seems like the Tractor boys parking ticket was only good for 150 minutes. Bendtner manged to do from the left what Arshavin has struggled to do - get past his man and score. Fortunately Arshavin got two assists so he's a great player once more.

I'd like WHam, I'd like an all London affair (the West Ham boys are good lads as well) and West Ham try to play football. Brum would just turn up and try and kick the ***** out of us. Don't get me wrong, I don't think that makes us less likely to win per se, but I could see a couple of injuries if we play them. Funny, I was talking with a few mates in the pub after the game about that Bendtner goal. Someone said it was Bergkampesque, I countered it felt it had a touch of the Henrys about it. Not a bad pair of yardsticks to debate with.

I asked Bendtner himself and he says it was the touch of Zidane, the flick of Maradona and the finish of Gerd Muller. He was at pains to stress that he wasn't comparing himself to those players because, "I'm much better than them. Obviously."
