NLD's are always tough games no matter what the current form is - there is too much at stake on both sides for it not to be committed. Spuds must have been amazed then at the acts of gratuitous benevolence we showed the leagues bottom club. Not much that anyone could do to prevent Bentley's stunning strike but Almunia's nervous fumble of Huddlestone's shot gave them encouragement they didn't need. Denilson and Cesc put in good stints in midfield with Denilsons 97 passes with 90% completion showing efficient use of the ball. Fabregas was a little less economic but scrapped enough to win the ball more often. van Persie did everything he could to ensure the result went our way. Having a hand in all 4 goals, more shots than anyone else, passing accurately, creating more chances and putting in ball winning tackles too. The other stand out player was Gallas who put in a midfielders performance with 66 passes, 92% completion, a couple of goal attempts including his goal and winning the ball as often as anyone else. There were some good performances tonight - and some pretty immature ones.

Still in utter disbelief. Fair play to Tottenham, and a stern look to the Arsenal players.

Win our next two games - away to Stoke and home to Man Utd, and this will be forgotten. We've just done this too often now: Birmingham away last season; Liverpool away in Champs League last season; Chelsea away last season; Man Utd away last season.

I didn't realise we had United so soon. They must be licking their lips at the smell of blood.

I thought he worked pretty hard for the cause Will. He did all the ugly stuff and thought he put in a decent shift.
