Video: Alexis Sanchez scores twice for Chile

Well, despite our fears, Alexis Sanchez appears to have come through last night’s clash with Uruguay intact. He came off in the 83rd minute, but did so having scored twice to keep Chile’s World Cup qualification hopes alive.

See the goals below.



What a guy. Let’s hope the hamstrings suffer no post-game complications.

Yeah hope his hamstrings are alright. Even then it’s still a long journey back and an early kick-off, tough decision.


As much as I think it will definitely be another roll of the dice to play him against United if his fitness is still maybe 50/50. I don’t think Arsene really has a choice, he has to start him away at Old Trafford because I just don’t see us getting any sort of positive result without him in the side. I also don’t think we can really afford to lose – psychologically it would be a huge blow to get beaten away at United again, under Maureen, especially with them playing the way they are currently, which is exceptionally poorly.… Read more »

That’s second goal tells me Wenger is succeeding in turning Alexis into a real CF.




It is insane how much the guy plays, surely the strain on his body is immense. However the upside is, if he is fit for Old Trafford, he’ll be coming into the game in red hot form. He and Ozil are so different and so exciting in completely different ways, what a pleasure and privilege it is to watch both of them play for us this season.


Do it again in front of Mourinho please…


Yes. Alexis starts, runs riot scoring two goals before halftime before running out of steam. Giroud comes on at half time, takes out two defenders making room for a silky run and finish by Ozil. Kos heads in at the 90th minute, 4-0, at which point Wenger drop kicks Mourinho Cantona style.

A man can dream.

I would picture Wenger more in the style of Mandrake doing a hypnotic gesture which leads to Mourinho’s insides melting and as he dies a pathetic death on the side line he reaches and cries for Eva Carneiro before remembering he sacked her and now it’s too late. By the next second he’s dead, much in the same fashion of King Joffrey when he was poisoned, and the Arsenal fans and Man U fans cheer to the tune of Ding Dong the Cunt is Dead!


That became dark quite quickly.

Godfrey Twatschloch

Well I thought it was funny.


Love this guy. I’m praying to every god out there to keep him healthy man


My favourite part of goal two is simply the run he makes in behind. The touch is undoubtedly world class but I hope this will give him the confidence to go in behind more often

Godfrey Twatschloch

World class assist on the second goal as well.


I want to hear the commentator from that first clip every week…
Turns like a bottle of Chardonnay???

Cornelius P. Snuffington III

Disagree completely. His name is Ray Hudson, and whenever I want to watch a game and the only streams I can find feature him on commentary, I’m disappointed because it means I have to watch on mute. He’s unbearable. His commentary would be hard to tolerate even in small doses, but it’s that he speaks that way all the time about the most mundane events on the pitch that really make it bad.


100% Overexcited moron. He’s the epitome of the boring middle-aged guy who’s had one too many Tennent’s trying to chip into your football chat in the pub.

At least he’s not Alan Green. He does have that in his favour.

A Different George

Also, Hudson is not at the match–he is sitting in a Florida studio. He was one of those not-quite-good-enough or a little-bit-old English players in the original NASL in the late 1970’s, playing in Ft. Lauderdale (I think), and apparently never left.

Le Prof

His name’s Ray Hudson, and he does coverage on Bein sports (mostly la liga and serie a) here in the states. He’s brilliant. Here’s a youtube compilation of his eccentric commentary:

Easy as JVC

Very funny. “A wet dream of orgasmic proportions”. Now say that again in John Motsons voice and you have something quite special.


Ray Hudson: The marmite of commentating.


feel quite sorry for the other commentator.


Props to Sanchez for staying in one piece and scoring two nice goals. That Uruguay keeper’s not very good though, is he?

I hope Sanchez brings that red hot form back with him. If he can play that way against MUD we’ll slaughter them.


Fingers crossed for Saturday. I can’t see AW resting him for this one even if he arrives back late. I really fancy our chances against a patched up Utd back four with the form Alexis and Mesut are in. Come on you Gooners.


Also, what a touch to bring the ball down for the second goal. Magician.


Well his is growing in the striker role more and more.

Little Mozart

Two splendid goals, although the keeper had a howler for that second one.

I just hope Alexis is alright.


His tenacity reminds me so much of Maradona.


Alexis’s 2nd goal is a real strikers finish. He’s benefiting from playing as a No. 9

Arse City Blues

I was born to the sound of Bay Bells,
At 3 I proclaimed ‘T*ttenham smells’,
Sp*rs are shite, by blood’s red and white, and I’m not talkin bout my cells


Bow Bells? That would mean you are a cockney, if you are born within the sound of Bow Bells.

Jorin Mathews

Suspected hamstring injury? Two goals, no problem, says Sanchez.

What a guy. That touch for the 2nd goal is absolute quality.

Oh, when will some of us ever learn. With or without Alexis Saturday is going to be one of our most difficult matches this season. It’s not that we shouldn’t be optimistic because we should. But it ought to be just about the win and nothing else. If there’s one thing this campaign has given us already its to shut down the ready-made, recent seasons, stock narratives relied on by the majority of twatfaced pundits. Hell, even Roy Keane said some nice things about us the other day. Unbeaten in all matches since Liverpool; and DWWWWWWDWD from our last 10… Read more »

He can ease out the dodgy hammy by running up and down the cabin on the flight back

Make mine a Swiss miss

Hopefully Alexis is fit for the weekend. Although we are without a couple of important players, the manure defence is missing several of the regular cunts. Of course they’ll have some other cunts but they won’t be as good and Alexis is just the man to take advantage.
Be a big blow to them if we go there and take the points.


Blogs, I’m not sure if I’m misremembering, but I seem to recall that you had a no-autoplaying ads policy on arseblog. In the last couple of weeks on arseblog news I’ve noticed autoplaying ads with videos either at the bottom of articles between the body of text and the ‘tags’ section, or on the right side column of the page above the ‘as featured on NewsNow’ badge. This happens on some but not all pages. They tend not to play immediately after the page is opened, but some time after (anywhere from 5-20 minutes I’d say). The way I browse… Read more »

Yes enough of those dodgy dating sites popping up!!
What? They are track ads? OOps, no more porn for me 🙁

Isn’t it selfish and hypocritical that we all thought Chile crazy to feature Alexis with a bandaged leg, but wish he’s able to play a role on Saturday, 3 days after? If he’s at the brink of a hamstring, he’s no farther from aggravating it just because he was okay after playing this morning.

Bergkamp 3:16

Okay noted. Get back to London.

Godfrey Twatschloch

That is, to paraphrase agent Cooper, a damned fine assist on the second goal. Anyone know who that is?


Marcelo Díaz. He plays for Celta de Vigo.

Godfrey Twatschloch

Such a strong performance from Sanchez edging his way through those two defenders, not least for the two of them towering over him as they begin to close him down, but that pass from Diaz is the one I could watch all day. Lovely ball!

igbo Amadi-Obi

Yeah. He should just get back so his leg can be looked at, and cared for, professionally. We should think long term. Many accuse Wenger of overplaying him, yet they want him on Saturday. About this time last season he was reported to have complained about his hamstring after a midweek game, and Wenger reassured us at his Thursday press conference that he was okay. We played him on Saturday, and that was it for 2 months. It probably cost us the title.


I understand your point, but there’s a difference between feeling tight midweek and playing nearly 90 on a known tear in recovery.

I’m happy the initial take is that he’s ok, and hope it stays so. this is one where I’ll be very happy to be wrong!


I hope his hamstring is fine and he replicates this form against Manure forcing Maureen to cry in his sleep!


No way Wenger won’t start him on Saturday if his hamstring is deemed OK. He never has rested him coming off of an international break when he would play all of two games (this time he only played one). It has been interesting seeing Wenger take him off early a few times this year when early in his tenure with Arsenal Wenger seemed to never want to take him off.


Alexis should put pen to paper and sign da ting. If he and Mesut can maintain their red hot form, and Theo gets back his goalscoring boots from weeks ago, I see us topping the table. But the pudding will be in how we handle the next few busy weeks.

Getso gunner

Is He playing as CF for Chile?


Nope!! Wide left.


Boss doing his thing for Chile! just hope he saved 2 for Man Utd. sad he is not around to help out.


He needs to start on the bench at Old Trafford, we can’t risk it.


It’s all in against United. Whatever just win the bloody game
