'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Kolo's 'Home Victory' Oath

West Ham (Jesus frigging christ lads) became the first ever team to win at Ashburton Grove, and it was a loss that should never have happened.

In a game that Arsenal had 1397 clear cut chances, the Gunners ran out clear losers after the Happy Hammers found the net with their sole chance in the clash.

The pain felt in the dressing room was too much to bear, and the players there and then made an oath not to drop anymore points at home this season.

An oath Arsenal kept in tact after the first hurdle with an important victory over Champions League wannabe's, Bolton, by fighting back from a one goal deficit Saturday past.

Kolo Toure reveals all.

"It was vital for us to get a victory over Bolton at the weekend.'

"We needed the win, not only to guarantee fourth but also to challenge for third. That`s our top target up to the end of season. After the West Ham defeat, we took an oath that we cannot drop any more points at home.'

"If we look at our home games this season, we can see how many points we`ve lost. It is so many."

The next test of the Arsenal resolve to keep their promise intact takes place this evening as Arsenal take on Man City at AG.

Lol.Well after a bright start the boys are currently not fulfilling their promise, but I think we will prove too much for Man City and pop them 3-1.

Last time I put a bet on, they had to shoot my horse. I'm sorry but I just can't risk getting anymore players injured (killed)!

I was at that West Ham game and it gave me my faith back in English football to be fair, I was in shock after the match, I couldnt believe we had all those chances and lost. The reason it restored my faith in English football is, the game still shows that it has a way of shutting you up, making you feel humble and things happen sometimes you just cant explain. This is coming Chelsea`s way fairly soon, the signs are there, how they have got so far in all competitions is beyond me. They are *****e to watch and no wonder they have empty seats apart from the games with us and united.

Hail gunnerb. I hope u're right (abt Chelsea i.e.) !! Well, it took a long time for the players to realise this, but better late than never, i suppose. I hope they keep this good run going till the end of the season.
