Wenger: it was all Arsenal

Arsene Wenger has paid tribute to his side’s performance after their 1-0 win ensured that $amir Na$ri would remain as free from medals as he is of a chin.

Mikel Arteta’s late goal sealed the deal for the Gunners, but Arsene always felt we were most likely to score and that after some close calls, including hitting the post three times, the goal would come.

Speaking at his post-game press conference, he said, “We had a consistent domination in the game. I think we had over 60 per cent possession. They had one or two good periods, Man City, but overall after 10 minutes in the second half it was all us.

“I always felt the goal would come but it was very tight and in the end you feel it is important not to lose. But we kept going and at home recently we have produced some outstanding performances against any team. I am very happy that we got the win and the team continues to grow in quality.

“We started strongly and stayed strong for nearly 80 minutes. I feel we had a little weaker period at the start of the second half where Man City came out a bit. But overall we had a consistent domination, we won the duels, and overall I believe the result is logical.”

It might have been an easier day for Arsenal if Mario Balotelli had been sent off for his assault on Alex Song’s knee but Wenger refused to be drawn into a discussion about what Roberto Mancini should do about the madcap Italian.

“I don’t know him and it’s not my job to do that,” he said. “I don’t want to interfere with Mancini’s job. Everybody has his cases in his own camp and I have enough work.”

And when asked about $amir Na$ri, Wenger laughed and said, “Who?”*

*not really but I choose to think he did

another great win in a crazy season.. after all the madness, this might end up being my favourite season for at least 5 years.
and another arteta peach.



Truly another great win. But it was more than that to me. It’s a highly symbolic and deeply satisfying win. Our club, who does it the right way and with class, ended the title challenge of that oil-funded club, the club that has assembled a team of mercenaries, skewed the transfer market with their insane spending and gaudy contracts, and sought to destabilize our club on multiple occasions by targeting key players. Oh yes. It feels real, real good…

Old man grape



Spot on Witoldo. And the fact that Arteta scored the winner, the guy who took a pay cut to join Arsenal and is wearing Nasri’s old number is a truly wonderful piece of karma!!


Balotelli had a YOLO shirt. It stands for: You Only Live Once.




New #8 >>>>> Old #8!!
Na$ri “joined to win trophies” who?


last year it ws na$ri who was taken to anoder level by wnger… bt that cunt wanted mre and lost his talent to warm up benches… and nw its arteta…. v all luv u man…

D arsenal



YAAAAAY! The stadium was buzzing today. Truly classy club, im in love


I’m awash in a glow of smugness.

bob's your uncle

…and what’s that stat about 70% of goals being scored in under three passes of the opposition being dispossessed..gotta love our high line pressure. gj arteta.

Mr. G

Whilst we probably should have scored more, it’s not relevant because the important thing is we outplayed City, for all their $$$, and took three points thanks to a very good goal.

So once again, mind the gap please Sp*rs.


Na$ri is still a cunt! But a trophy less cunt at that!!




picture says a thousand words

Dr. Silent

Mancini has said Balotelli won’t play for City again this season and will probably be sold in the summer.

No doubt Sp*rs will try to buy him. He’d probably fit in really well with all the other cunts in that team.

bob's your uncle

i would lmao if balotelli lined up next to mr ” I didn’t realise i was wearing an arsenal shirt” next season.. .. laurel and fucking hardy =-D

Abraham Kang

Mancini also said Tevez would never play again for City. Mancini cannot be believed! Nevertheless, who cares about City. We’re the second favorite club in Manchester! As a fan from Singapore. I enjoyed this match a lot, and although i have cable tv to watch the match live. Arseblog text commentary never fails to crack me up.


I am sure the neighbours probably would have called the cops if I had gone on shouting and jumping after we scored …

fucking AWWESOME!!! ….. GO GUNNERS!!!!

I am hoping Man$hitty implode and we can somehow snatch 2nd from them … that would be LWAT (like winning a trophy) considering the start we had …. maybe I am dreaming but ….

Bashir Aliyu

Arsenal deserved the they had and there is no team like Arsenal.


Told you this was gonna happen. We win again today and R.vP is not on the score sheet I kind of feel good about it cause it proves we are not a one man team. But I know for sure Robin will deliver in our next game and he’ll surely be the MVP and win the golden boot as well.

Runcorn Gooner

AW actually said I was looking forward to seeing Na£Sri but it was a shame he wasn’t playing today

Malaysian Gooner

Who is that guy Nasri? Never heard of him. Is he some kind of a cunt?

Bashir Aliyu

Arsenal deserved the win and there is no team like Arsenal.




I thought we could only win when RVP scored? Funny how our best run came in his worst run (it hurts to say it).

bob's your uncle

btw… how much of a beating did our posts get today?.. seems like everyone kicked or smashed them.. or shot against them.. poor bastards.

Krazy Kool

Why is there no praise from Wenger now? His tactics were spot on today. Benayoun had the same job as Ramsey against QPR, and his work ethic helped us dominate.


Because this is just his usual tactics. For much of the previous three seasons we’ve used a left winger (Arshavin, Nasri,, etc.) who loves to tuck into midfield, helping us win midfield and opening up acres of space for the left back on the flank.

Master Bates

YES!! and Benayoun was doing the same thing Ramsey was doing . getting inside . that tactic helps us keeps possesion .

Ofcourse the difference Benayoun played it better than Rambo and we totally dominated them from start to finish


I totally agree with you, it’s nice to have a quality bench. Youssi was just that extra man in the midfield always running, and with him there Gibbs had enough space to run down the line. Good match tactics


That’s twice this season we have outplayed city. As pleased with the performance as much as the result. The irony will be lost on a money grabbing mercenary like nasri but it’ feels so sweet with us having spent so little in relative terms compared to them.

Aden Joseph

I woke up on the west coast of California (the east coast of California is Lake Tahoe) and checked the score on my trusty rusty phone as the hills here have no free WIFI… and saw the one nil to the Arsenal! The cat and I did a dance that if done with a voodoo priest will make Na$iri’s chin even smaller(I know I know its hard to belive!) And thanked the heavens for the glory that is the Arsenal! Oh to be a Gooner! To Chin/Chin


Look at that worried look (wenger) Is a picture of a man that’s in love with his club but has suffered so much lately. Hope the job isn’t killing him.

Internet Joe

RVP should be sold in the summer



The invincible arse

Chill guys, don’t you follow arsecast, the coolest ‘cast ever?


Since internet Joe has not used any profanity in making that statement, I’m going to assume he’s just being sarcastic and isn’t some articulate troll.


Yeaah, on when he gives us a UCL trophy

Red & White Stripey Socks

Baloballbag! The man needs to sort his head out. I like his soap opera life but tackles like that….fuck off back to Italy!


wheres the fun in tht?

Suso D Stylist

What a great win for we the gunners today, Arsenal the best team in (EPL) nice football club plays good football in a wonderfull atmosphere.


Amazing game and a deserved win,city who?


Ooooooooh Samir Nasri!!!! Went to Middle Eastlands and u won fuck all!!!!!!!

Antek Vest

Which includes every last damn GOONER there today. Well done, EVERYONE!


Ode to Na$ri:
Ballon d’Or your having a laugh.
Ballon d’Or your having a laugh…

Mark Foo

In retrospect, it’s a good thing Balotelli was not sent off earlier cos’ I feel more pride in winning the game 11 on 11. That truly showed our class!



arsenal 5-2 tottenshit

i love Ramsey. ohh I do.just send the lad to Bolton on loan where our luck lies apparently. he will improve I believe. cudos to the fans at EMIRATES. FORTRESS mind you na£√i!


Great win. And life got a little bit better when I discovered that if you have several drinks, take a few steps from the television and really squint your eyes, yossi looks ever so slightly like Bobby Pires. Giggity.


Ohh only if chelsea could pull sp*rs down to 5th, now that will be the perfect way to in this fucking season


Yeah but, could you imagine getting Spurs in the Champions League? I would absolutely love that.

Abraham Kang

If only Newcastle pipped both Chelsea and sp*rs to the 4th place. Then i can go to work in peace.

Nwosu Desmond

Arsenal showed class against Man city today…..Its obvious mancini’s pride, Tevez’s indiscipline and Balotelli’s madness has cost Man city their season.


I don’t expect mancini to succeed with these sort of players. if he is still on the job after summer i expect him to off load Bali and tevez.


I bet when Arteta got the ball n we all saw the space.. We were all shouting..
What a brilliant performance from our three in midfield!

Der Springer

Yes. It’s amazing how quickly your mind can process things. In the instant that I saw Arteta with the ball in that space I thought of his free kick from two games ago, then “hrm, he’s got a great shot’, and then screamed “shoot”. And he did not disappoint.


Mind the fucking gap.


ssshhh…not yet…not yet

damien joyce

I must say I was a bit sceptical about Gibbs, perhaps showing my short sightedness due to his injury prone history, but really after a few games on the trot now, what a fucking player, he offers us so much balance to the back 4, he doesn’t seem as raw as Ca$hley did defensively when he first took over silvinho. it’s like having 2 Sagna’s and that can’t be a bad thing. I was a bit miffed as to why the Ox has been excluded recently but I reckon he’ll play 2 in a row now where he can drive… Read more »




Where was Gervinho?

zed leppelin

Arsene deserves more respect. he has completely turned us around. Just complete the transfers earlier this time and we have a shot at the title .

In Arsene we trust


santos is so goooddd with the ball!

Nwosu Desmond

What is Diaby, Chemark, Calos Vella, Squillachi still doing in Arsenal? AW plz sell off this guys so we ca have more space in the team. Arsenal! We are the gonners….


“ensured that $amir Na$ri would remain as free from medals as he is of a chin”

Brilliant Blogs..

It is what it is

We support the greatest club EVER.


Fantastic win yesterday. We deserved to win it by at least three clear goals after dominating it for almost the entire 90 minutes. The only disappointing things were that RvP didn’t get the goal that he deserved, and that cunt Balotelli wasn’t sent off in the first half for that assault.

I can’t stand Chelsea, but you just know now that they are going to catch Spurs, don’t you? The game’s up, Harry.
