Watching the Chelsea game on TV as I can't get the Arsenal game. Seeing Mata playing for them pains me to say the least.

I feel the same way Armory, but we have who we have. In true Arsenal style I'm turning my eye to the future before this match is even won, but Marseille is currently leading Dortmund 3-Nil. yeah, the same Dortmund we held to an uncomfortable draw.

Decent result truth be told. The kind of results we need to keep grinding out to return to form. We had abit of a wobble for 20 minutes, but everyone put a shift in (even Arshavin tried in the second half after being a lazy sob in the 1st). Very impressed with The Ox both on and off the field.

I thought the defensive performance was very professional, especially in the 2nd half. After the final whistle, Per Mertesacker had Song in a long hard hug, showing delight with their successful pairing. That was a nice touch. I hope we get stronger from this game.

Could be worse, smithdj; we could have spent lots more money on players during the close season and then drawn with a Valencia side which has sold its best players. Or, spent billions of pounds in the last few years and lost to Bayern Munich (and have a 250k/week striker on strike). Or be champions of England, make a flying start to the season, and blow a 2-0 lead to draw 3-3 at home to FC Basle of Switzerland.
