That's about as strong as we could expect considering. Would have prefered to see Walcott instead of Arshavin, but I'm sure that change will be made at some point.

Not many more options on the bench apart from Walcott with Chamakh's recent form and AOC being 'unknown' at this level

At least we can forget about all this transfer bollix for 90 minutes and get behind the boys!

Decent opening 15 minutes of the new season. Newcastle aren't helping themselves though. Gervinho and Arshavin looking sharp.

Alex Song is quite possibly the dopiest footballer ever to live.

That's how frustrasting my Arsenal can be. 30 seconds to go in the half, free kick 35 yards from goal and we pass it back the half way line. WTF?

Very drab and not like Arsenal. Where is our sharp start and quick passing game we usually start the season with? I predicted we would have a slow start to the season but not of such lethargic proportions. No one willing to take responsibility, team is shorn of all confidence and appears more interested in protecting the back than scoring. Scars of last season's encounter at same venue, perhaps. 2nd half just has to get better or we may just find every middle table side taking a chance against us. Maybe, we should play for the draw and exorcise the ghosts.
