take that johnny foreigner
were sublime...I really wanted Walcott to get his hat-trick...I can't believe that itv didn't update you on the Rangers score once...
Gash. Totally missed the highlights. FUCKING MCNULTY AND HIS INTRIGUING CASE!
surely Jose or Jacques or Jens makes more sense?
it probably wouldnt be a proper insult if it wasnt all english, you cant go calling "them" by their proper names after all...
but on the other sometimes i feel it means i care too much about the result to really enjoy the football. but tonight just took the piss. it was everything that you know arsenal CAN be, but it all just came off, even without our main goal scorer.
it'd be nice to beat Liverpool by a similar scoreline at the weekend though.
fondness for Liverpool makes me reluctant to see this happen, but I really think Arsenal could simply blow them away at the weekend...it's a big couple of games for Arsenal now, two wins against Liverpool and United and who knows what could happen this season
i'd certainly not be heartbroken with a draw at Anfield...
that said, according to the statistics (i know, i know) the team last year had more possession, chances created, shots etc than any other arsenal team under wenger, despite missing half the team for half the year. the only real problem was the finishing. this season they're actually shooting rather than tapping it around the six yard box and on target as well. i'm not really surprised at how they're playing, although the improvement in that one aspect is really remarkable.
when arsenal play well they could very well be playing the best football there is to see in europe today.
ONLY JOKING! good to see Walcott score a couple - I hope he gets a good run in the team.
Well done Rangers and *grits teeth* Man U.
glad to see united back to their usual selves (scoring plenty but leaking needless goals) and arsenal are the only other english team i like to see do well in europe, so a good night all round.
this is why they're my "second" team
I fucking hate Tyldsley
TELEGRAM FOR METHS: BENTNERGRAM IS SHIT
*prays for thewarn based dreams*
but as Wenger says, it's all about humility. Gotta make sure we pick up the points against Liverpool and United now, and not get carried away.
What I love about Arsenal right now is how every player has been trained to play in the same way and ethic, any member of the squad can just slot right into things, and that philosophy goes right down to the youth teams.
Much better than a Chelsea style approach.
i think arsenal will slip up.
they're quality, but i don't think they're quite up there with the squad man u have. I'd still love to see cesc in uniteds midfield though, would be the perfect understudy to scholes. But that's never going to happen.
