simmy8_2000
Ahead at half time, fantastic! let's hope man city can get a goal back at home to chelski to cancel lumpard's pen
JakeB
u watching the game? aliadiere miss off the year.... shocking. he shud have a hatrick. villa missed 2 great chances as well
D4NNYT
i kno how many 1 on 1's can he miss......WOW...just WOW
Youngest in Charge
where are you watching this!?
bootoo
oooh i smell 3rd, and spuds are watching some poor euro thingy competition, 3rd is much better than a Qtr final of a poor euro comp.
PUREGOLD
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!
D4NNYT
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!
simmy8_2000
great result after a terrible run of everything. we'll have to be even better on sunday at everton
ahops101
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!
flv
Who scored? i was trying to watch it on some real *****ty streaming thing and it was ******** up the whole first half.
Ozi Gooner
"1-0 to the Arsenal!"
Ozi Gooner
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
D4NNYT
Diaby it was Oz.
flv
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?
KaoTeK
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
questforavalon
Yeah i saw that, was the Beast having a go at Wenger? or was Wenger having a go at the beast?
Ozi Gooner
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.
G4L
Good to see Diaby score :) no matter how lucky it was, all that matter is that we are now 3rd.
AB_Arsenal
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.
Gunners
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!
flv
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.
gunnergooner
Just saw the Gibbs goal on Sky Sports News. What a strike. Must have been fantastic for the young lads to play in front of a big crowd.
flv
fabregas slump continues.
hazzagooner
Haza he is probably tired, pro evo brb
Gunners
The Pondscum beat the Arsenal of North Portugal, closest they'll get to beating the real thing for another 12 years.
Ozi Gooner
there were some brownish pants at the lane tonight, especially at 0-1 and 2-2...
G4L
just got bavk from the gametock three hours to get to the motorway out of villa park and and another hour to get on the motorway :x
ExRox
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.
prits
an easy chance or 3 prits! Good to see him getting in scoring positions though.
iceman10
yes correct iceman, if he could finish we would have some player on our hands
hazzagooner
Who's this Jake B fella? sounds like a poor mans me.
Jacky B
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).
Little Dutch
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 :).
prits
Lucky to get away with a win....
col8
So funny seeing an Arse supporter accusing a player from another team of being a diver. The phrase pot calling the kettle black springs to mind.
