Today we passed and moved (look at Rosicky’s goal)
Normally we are static and allow defenders to niop in and steal the ball or block our attacks.


1-team on the pitch today with class,from London.
1-massive shower of shit on the pitch today,with zero class,from middlesex.


23468932 – number of articles i read this week about how we would get spanked… Stupid media, y u no get it? *motions*


This is just about the best comment I’ve read on the game all day, from the Guardian match report… pass it around!


It’s a nice comment. Thanks for sharing.

Sagna was great today–I hope the team does pull together and save St. Totteringham’s Day this year.

On a related note, someone get word to Adebayor’s people that Milan has seen how good he is and is ready to offer him a contract increasing his ManCity wages. Maybe he’ll quit on the Spuds _completely_.


Arsenal’s first game after Arshavin came to Arsenal in 2009 was a North London derby at WHL which ended 0-0 with Eboue getting 2 yellow cards=Red card. Arsenal’s first game after Arshavin left in 2012 was a North London derby at the Emirates which Arsenal won 5-2 with Parker getting 2 yellow cards=Red card.

Dear blogs,

Can you make tomorrow’s headline ” ‘Arry sent to twitchcon 5″?


Correction: ” ‘Arry sent 2 twitchcon 5 ” 😉

The BearMan

Fantastic performance! Well done lads!

However, hear is what Arsenal has to master: To do the same performance on a soft and uneven pitch.

On a perfect pitch Arsenal can take any team apart!

But today is a day to celebrate, tonight I am having some mash potatoes for my tea.


I think this game showed the importance of 1) going forward through the midfield at speed instead of lazily passing the ball around hoping for an opening, and 2) having two real fullbacks who can push up the pitch, link up with the wingers, and get crosses in.

I also think the game showed that Spurs are cunts.


i think we already knew spurs are cunts


Great work by the lads today!

First post for me and a big hi to all of u!


A young boy goes to social services and tells them he has nowhere to live. “What about your parents?” asks the social worker. “No, they beat me,” says the boy. “What about your grandparents?” says the social worker. “No, they beat me even harder!” says the boy. “Well … where do you want to stay then?” replies the social worker. “Tottenham,” says the boy. “They don’t beat anyone.


This game is the highlight of our inconsistent season.
Nice to see other players making a goal scoring contribution as well!

Glory hunter

And with Gerv & Ox on the bench, we actually had good alternatives to make an impact of required!
I thought Gibbs & Sagna in particular were fantastic.
& The Theo conundrum rumbles onto next week!


All sounds great. Lets not carried away. We’ve done this to ourselves this season. Lets get carried away when we’re 10 points ahead of Spurs. Still got Liverpool, Newcastle, Chelsea and Man City to play. Plus we’ve got to hope Spurs drop their 7 point advantage. On the evidence of the Blackburn and the game today, we can only say it’s possible NOT certain. COME ON, WE’VE PLAYED SOME OF THE BEST FOOTBALL EVER WITH HENRY, VIERA, PETIT, LJUNBERG, PIRES, SEAMAN, OVERMARS, ANELKA, IAN WRIGHT, WRIGHT, WRIGHT, WRIGHT. SPURS CANNOT AND MUST NOT FINISH THE PREMIERSHIP ABOVE ARSENAL!

Lee Morgan's brain

Please…make it stop…please…
I really really promise I’ll never say or think anything nasty against Mr.Wenger & his mighty red & white army again…


*12* — the number of female reproductive organs on the pitch today.

*11*— we’re playing for spurms.

*1*— is mike dean.

*12*— CUNTS tried to stop the arsenal, by diving an cheating and all out cuntery,.

*0*— the number of times it worked.

*5-2*— the final score,.

*1*— only one club in London 🙂


MATT DAMON,.. matt Damon!!!

5 – Twitchcon level Hatchet ‘Arry was sent to.

1 – Diving chimpy faced cheat on the pitch.

Just a thought. If the ref believed that really was a penalty then why didn’t he give a card to Gibbs or Szczesny for stopping a goalscoring opportunity?
Probably because he knew it was bullshit. To be fair though, I actually thought he had a good game other than that, the ref.


How about the number of time Theo was given the ball and fell over in the first half?
Or what about just the number of times he fell over?

Probably more times than the amount of goals in the last 2 seasons for him.


I am just absolutes SHOCKED by 46 – Penalties Mike Dean has awarded to other teams since he last gave one to Arsenal… sounds like the league need to take a serious look at this; I know I’m quite biased, but so does that staggering # !


Yes 46!!.. incredible stat.
And it could have been more but the Spuds were unable to make their way into our penalty area to get some more,


Any idea if this means in all matches that he’s reffed or just Arsenal matches?


never mind. it’s answered below.

Lee Morgan's brain

0-number of times mentioned on Sky/BBC that Bale is a dirty cheating fuckwit who was trying to get our keeper sent off
Also 0-number of times Sky/BBC mentioned that Scott Parker has all the tackling skill of Paul Scholes


1 = Number of Bacary Sagnas, and he’s a Gooner

van ali

I hope ramsey takes a break until the end of the season. Almost everytime we start a game without him, we win. I have said it before, he is the tumor of the team, and once we get rid of it, we will have a better team. Maybe he is a good sub, but he cannot play the arsenal way in a higher level. He was a flop so many time, and I do not think that will do any good from him. Maybe this will even destroy the promised talent. Rosicky was the heart of the team, and he… Read more »


Maybe he can be our ‘Bale’ in a season or two. Hopefully he becomes as consistent and we can win more games with him in the team. Just a thought


No thanks, we don’t want him to become a diving cheating cunt.


1-number of times the rat faced spud cunt was allowed to control the ball with his arm van der vaart style & pass to the cheating chimp spud cunt to dive for a penalty
