I'm pretty happy with that. I hope Wenger's put Walcott up front and not gone for a 4-5-1!
simmy8_2000
Also, if Wenger has put Walcott up front then Walcott is progressing faster than expected because Wenger said that Theo would spend at least 1 season playing as a winger to try and mould him into a Thierry-type player. Either that or he's despetate. :(
simmy8_2000
liverpool lost !!...3rd place is surely ours..!! (PLZ GUNNERS DONT SCREW DIS ) !!!!
HENRY`14
Shoot yeah, I was only thinking "The title race is over" when I heard that! 4 pts behind with 3 games in hand!
simmy8_2000
ooo!!! thnk we shld be leadin.. (dat was a gr8 chance.)....
HENRY`14
The same old story so far we have loads of possession but no penetration.
AB_Arsenal
I CANT BELIEVE IT :(
AB_Arsenal
n we have wasted gr8 chances....!!!
HENRY`14
Even when we were offside we still cant score :( Is it just me or are they still yelling shoot.
AB_Arsenal
wat channel is the match on
RVP11
GOALLLLLLL!!!!!
AB_Arsenal
Get in! 1-0, to the Arsenal, 1-0 to the Arsenal!! We're all over them now. 5 or 6 corners in the last few minutes, Walcott getting into some good positions.
simmy8_2000
What a ******** goal!!! Beast, beast, Beast!!!!
simmy8_2000
BEAST BEAST BEAST BEAST BEAST BEAST BEAST BEAST BEAST :0
AB_Arsenal
OMG the defense is starting to show cracks...guys stay strong!
AB_Arsenal
space is opening up at the other end as well though. We seem a little more subdued since Walcott went off but still looks like we're in cruise control.
simmy8_2000
How awesome was that by Diaby? Took on 4 players and won! Diaby whoo, Diaby whoo, we got him from Auxere, he's every-fu***ng where.
simmy8_2000
2-1! come on Arsenal, don't let this go! senderos' first touch was to score an OG by the looks of it...oops!
simmy8_2000
OH no please no :(
AB_Arsenal
4 minutes added on?? Where did foy get that from???? It was a Fabregas OG, not Big Phill.
simmy8_2000
I have no idea where that 4 minutes came from.....please don't screw this up Arsenal!
AB_Arsenal
Senderos misses the game against Villa. That's all we need with all the suspensions and injuries.
simmy8_2000
Haha, easy victory right?
k_chelski
Where's all the baptista haters right now?
k_chelski
Oh thank god we won...that was close.
AB_Arsenal
The Baptista haters are on their way to the bakers, they heard there was some humble pie being served!
simmy8_2000
Big Phil almost scored at the end, damn that would have been some goal..
luckys_10
I'm ready to eat that pie every time (although I am not a hater!), he just needs to keep scoring THOSE scrappy toe pokes every time. A question: is Jens really losing it, or was he right to scream at the players for not covering (we did concede immediately after)?
G4L
and the way mad Jens has been playing, hope he stays on for another year..
luckys_10
who was MOTM in this game then??? i heard diaby did well when he came on, senderos had the best cameo, his nickname should be super sub ;)
RVP11
Ahh that was good we finally won, yh diaby dun quite well I think, dunno who will be man of the match though.
gunner-minesh
a relief. looks like it was close towards the end, but we deserved this win. just when u think u can predict this arsenal team, turns out u cant !!! good show guys.
