I'm pretty happy with that. I hope Wenger's put Walcott up front and not gone for a 4-5-1!

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. :(

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.

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.

Senderos misses the game against Villa. That's all we need with all the suspensions and injuries.

Big Phil almost scored at the end, damn that would have been some goal..

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)?

and the way mad Jens has been playing, hope he stays on for another year..
