dont watch the highlights.... what an awful game of football. could have been 6-6. awful defending, missed chances and gave the ball away far too often..... lucky goal to win it as well...... but, after the past 2 weeks; ill take that no end!

Excellent! A hard earned 1-0 win. Now let's hope the team can build on it. This game meant a lot to Wenger, did anyone see how he was reacting to everything? Le Boss smells second methinks!

Did I hear correctly on Sky Sports. 40,000 at the Emirates for our Youth Cup Semi Final. That's higher than most Premiership clubs attendences if that's right. 1-0 up against the Mancs as well! 1-0 against Villa too. A good night all round!

diaby... a lucky goal, didnt know much about it from a weak baptista effort... Baptista very unhappy about being subbed; had a word with wenger when he went off....... i think they thought he was injured

Well done lads... liked the look of the midfield -fab den and diaby nice n dynamic... carew dived like a cynical git a few 2 many times imo, but thought villa played some decent footie... btw was i imagining it or wagg the boss having a go at the beast when he was subbed?

It is third already. Hopefully we do this again and again for the rest of the year. Then maybe we have a shot @ 2nd. I have a question though. This is our 10th clean sheet of the season in EPL. which goal keeper has the most clean sheets in his 1) career in EPL 2) a single season in EPL. I think this season it must be van der saar

Wenger thought Baptista was tired so he pulled him off. Baptista said no, Wenger claimed he saw him put his hands on the hips. That was it. No big fuss. Aliadoere... what do you do with him? It is obvious he has skill, pace, intelligence... his timing is a bit off and looks like he thinks too much. I think I would have at least hit the target with the header. Tough one on Arsene.

Good to see Diaby score :) no matter how lucky it was, all that matter is that we are now 3rd.

To be honest I would shif Aliadiere. He is a good player but I think he should move on to a team like Leon or Monaco. I don't know.

For all our bad luck this season we deserved a bit of luck with the goal. The only thing is, it's a bit late for our luck to change now, so Lady Luck you can f*** off and shove your ugly c*** of a head up your fat scabby arse, you stinking f***** b******........****....****. So yes, as I was saying a little bit of luck goes a long way!

Yeah it's true 38,187 to be exact, great goal from Kieran Gibbs. The cheap prices meant family's could go together, 1 for kids 5 adults. A record attendance for the FA Youth Cup.

A good 3 points for us, i didnt watch the game, so I'm really looking forward to the highlights. I hope Ali scores a few, before his time is up. Sounds like he missed an easy chance on goal.

Exrox, know exactly what you mean, do you know what that was for? They decided to repaint the road markings on the M1, on the night of a sold out Prem fixture! Who decides these things? Have to give it to Freddie, he played really well and Gallas did too- his reaction at the end was a bit of a statement and I'm convinced these quotes attributed to him this week have been utter *********. Weird game, we should have had it sewn up by HT, but Carew was a constant pain (a bit of a diver too).

LD - I'm looking forward to your match report. It's good to know Freddie can still put in a good game, with all the criticism of late. The key in future will probably be to play him once in 2 weeks :).
