    Wouldn't expect any different Dave. Arsenal aren't capable of winning the Prem at the moment and we all know the press hate us so we won't come into the reckoning. Just have to win it aanyway, that'll learn em lol.

    The title is heading for Manchester guys , Citeh or United and no one else ....

    I keep hearing that United fans wish they would be happy to trade their midfield for ours and yet in the space of a few days they go away to QPR and Fulham and win both games with ease 0-2 & 0-5 respectively...


    Last night we had everyone's, 'old school football get in their faces favorites', Stoke City go away to Man City and not have one frigging shot on target at Hart's goal! Tony Pulis in his after match interview then near enough says "we cant come here and compete against these world class players"!


    Sorry guys but I expect the gap between 2nd and 3rd to get bigger by the seasons end Crying or Very sad ...

    I tipped Man U or City at the beginning of the season Arnie. I see no reason to change my mind. As long as we finish above the Arsenil though.

    Yep Baz, with you on that but I cant stop dreaming Sleep of a long shot first title in 50 years just yet Smile

    We got 70 points in finishing 4th a couple of seasons back so any improvement on that tally is okay with me ....

    I'd be happiest with a solid title chasing performance 0-1 away win....

    Don't think I can handle the drama of a high scoring game tonight

    Two points dropped at the Emirates by the home side - 82 minutes of frustration lightened only by some lamentable whistling - I'm with McCarthy on the sending off - Wayne Hennesy's grasp a lot surer than ours

    Question is Lought why AFC play every week with one striker - irritated that I just heard Ateta "made a meal" of Miljas foul - if the dopey cnut Ekoku had bothered to watch he would have seen the Spaniard get up straight away - presumably if he broken his ankle we'd be hearing the "he's not that kind of player"

    . Do you think the refs will be their beady eyes peeled for van Persie and djourou going down in stages just like you said modric did?

    Clearly not - if Attlwell had he would have pointed to the spot with the tap on RvP - certainly touched him - whether he should have gone down so easily I doubt - If he had tried to stay on his feet the he might have got a shot off or the daft b*stard might have given the penalty - but that is f*cking cheating for you innit - glad you are getting in the anti cheating programme Dave - you might even be bold enough to call your own players one day - hope for you yet

    Attlwell also was blind to the Brera handball though so it probably fate

    Dont worry - Warnock ranting last night ( bllox as far as I could see) ensures that anything dodgy on Saturday will come our way

    Not at all, i called the Modric same as you, got caught and then went down late, just like van Persil, as for Djourou, that was embarrassing, got you a free kick, that but for a great save would have got you a goal from cheating.

    Dont recall Djourou but as there as so much time wasting I had probably given up by that stage and gone for a pee

    Strange, did you also miss Songs kick out at TWO Wolves players? Funny how you can spot that Gallas could have walked for an innocous challenge, but also failed to miss Grant Holts forearm smash in Ekottos face, refs, eh Nic!!


    One last thing, an official can draw to the attention of the ref that a Spurs player had made a glasses sign to get him booked,
    but standing directly in line at a free kick, cant see someone blatantly trip a Spurs player in the box.

    Innocouous ? The player was through the Spuds defence, on the edge of the box and Billy decided, apparently, to fall over in front of him. Admittedly compared to the Livermore wrestling the Paddy to the ground it was a mild infraction, but on another day .....

    And for Song I reckon if he had seen red it would have been no more than he deserved for his petulant kick, what saved him from the wrath of Atlwell ( in my opinion) is that he had been on the end of the first foul in the sequence which ( stupidly) because he played advantage the referee had not blown up for

    As for the Gallas trip from what I recall there were other players in the box and certainly other players between the lino and where Gallas and Morrison came together. Did he see it ? Obviously not.

    Good to see Gallas was a bit brighter than Kaboul and just got up and got on with it - mocking the referee followed by his later tumble would have led to another red card

    Did you see how lucky Bale was with the first goal Dave - keeper should have snagged that scuffed shot no bother ?
