Team News: Arsenal vs Fulham

It`s been a while since we played a Saturday tea time match and they are traditionally kick off times we don`t do well in, but nevertheless we play host to Fulham at Ashburton Grove.

Pretty sure we going to drop points today. Fulham defence is stoic.

That's it Sajit. Do your thing.

I worry more about Ramsey's preference for backward play with all the forward players all making runs into good spaces.
Naijagunner
Oh *****ed...
Sajit
Ramsey needs to be subbed... Id bring on Benayoun and Gerv
Sajit
Hahahahahaha. That is all.
Crissybwoy

you waited til you went a goal down to start playing. looked like champion league come down syndrome to me.

Fulham set out to be difficult to break down and no doubt, the exertions of the midweek would have played a part in the speed of the play, especially with an eye on the League cup game against City coming up on Tuesday. The winning run is broken but one point wasn't the worst thing to happen to the Arsenal.
Naijagunner
The trolls come out in force when we go a goal down and apart from some insecure spuds there is now a chav boy too. It was an avoidable draw with the self goal. We played with urgency only after we went a goal down but overall worked Shwarzer and the fulham defence far more than Fulham worked Szczesny. 2 points dropped but a lot to fight for still.

Great spirit to come back and get a point. Still 3 pionts away from 3 rd spot. We will need to show character like we showed today to close that gap. Fulham came with a plan to frustrate. And they did it well.
Sajit
sajit how are you 3 points away from 3rd you are 5 points away
jljyid
The team lacked a bit of sharpness, especially in the offensive play. Defensively, we were ok, apart from the own goal. Why can't players learn to play the ball with their wrong foot? Good comeback though, that was pleasing. Good defensive performance from Fulham as well - Senderos and Hangeland had a good game, so it was a fair result in the end.
prits
4th spot. My bad.
Sajit
