Both Fabregas and Denilson saw a lot of the ball and notched up impressive stats making, respectively, 79 passes 87% completion and 72 passes 90% completion. What the stats can't tell you is just how much more subtlety and invention there was in Cesc's passing. Not only did he get through the work but it was much sharper and inventive than we have seen in other games this season. Statistically shots on target look ok but given that some of those off target seemed to be 'sitters' perhaps the figure should have been even better.

After reading some of the comments from supposed gunner supporters I am amazed. For what its worth we played out of our skins I was wrapped and long may we continue in this vein. Everyone in the team had a first class performance and provided we continue this way then we will win silver this year.

We were lucky to go in even at half time, should of been 2-2 minimum. second half, simply out classed them! I have no voice at work this morning, shouted and sung my head off last night, much better than that dross we served up against Hull, but it will take 10 more performances like this before I get that s**tty result out of my system and forgive them for being a bunch of prima donnas.

No not at all navydave, we were all over the shop defensively last night and lucky to keep a clean sheet, going forwards we were irresistable. Did you attend the Hull game? Wel if you did then although we had no luck what so ever for the match we lost a to a nothing small time team who should be havng a nosebleed, yet our 80k per week players strolled around without a care in the world, like "we" owed them thanks for turning up. It isn't a case of getting worked up, i'm very calm, as always, but unless you were there, paying £50 for your seat and saw the arrogance of the players, telling someone to lighten up is a little disrespectful i would say mate!

Yes I was at the Hull game, as well as every game. We were not that bad defensively last night (with the exception on 1 corner in the first half). I think you're being over critical. OK, we were bad on Saturday, but Hull will not be relegated this season. I didn't mean to be 'disrespectful' LG, but I obviously think things are in a better state than you!
