  • Menace

    Kos, Walcott & Ox in Chambers, Giroud & Ozil out. Ozil injured?

  • Menace

    Stamp by Sissoko on Monreal- should have been Red.

  • Kenneth Widmerpool

    COYG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Samrat Jha

    mariner 1 Arsenal 0

  • Almight Cristus

    Well boys, 100% penalty for Arsenal not given. UA predictions come true, and quite early in the match. Even BT Sprout and Howard Webb said so. Christ.

  • Kenneth Widmerpool

    off!!

  • Samrat Jha

    Tell you what Tony and Walter, your referee analysis has changed, i think, at least one thing. Referees are not that averse to giving opposition players early yellow cards. Hats off to you guys. Keep it up.

  • Kenneth Widmerpool

    Apo Armani was right about us getting kicked about today…

  • Samrat Jha

    Newcastle should be down to 9

  • para

    See how the yellows from the beginning of the game are right?

    If he had not got the first yellow because of “too early etc, they would still have 11 men.

  • Menace

    Yet another push in front of the ref & a stud in the heel of Ramsey. savage commenting like the twat he is.

  • para

    We should make a few runs at them while they are still flustered. We are taking too much time in front of their goal. I know we have the second half to go still, but….

  • jayramfootball

    Yet another poor half of football. Nice tippy tappy stuff but lack of creativity again. The few chances we create are wasted. Please buy a striker.

    As for Newcastle they should have had at least 2 men sent off and how the penalty was not given I will never know.

  • GoingGoingGooner

    The benefit of taking shots from just outside of the box is that it forces their defenders to step up those extra 2-3 yards, allowing some space behind…oh yeah, and you just might score 🙂

  • Al

    So, we could and should have had a penalty again. Hmmmmm…

  • GoingGoingGooner

    @para…wasn’t the second foul a straight red?

  • Kenneth Widmerpool

    I suppose the Toon will park the bus in the second half.

  • para

    I really do not understand how commentators can talk about intentional/nor intentional fouls. A foul is a foul is it not?

  • para

    GoingGoingGooner

    saw it later, yes it was.

  • Al

    So even Webb concedes it should have been two reds and a penalty….. Let’s hope it’ll all even out at the end of the season.

  • blackfoox

    the midfielders aint moving enough, lets buy a striker… such logic

  • Andrew Crawshaw

    I said we wouldn’t have a penalty and as far as I could see Newcastle should now be down to nine men. One out of three Important Decisions right so far. Average so far this year is three wrong so I expect a big wrong call in our box in the second half.

  • jayramfootball

    @blackfox

    The striker logic is simple – most chances created in the league so far this year, least goals in the league. Pretty simple. Another two missed by Walcott today – one of them an open goal from 2 yards. Buy a striker.

  • GoingGoingGooner

    I’m not sure why Cazorla got carded. It was a foul, sure but a yellow?

  • GoingGoingGooner

    Yes…Ox

  • blackfoox

    ze oxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  • para

    Whew. Finally

  • para

    GoingGoingGooner
    I think all fouls should be yellow.

  • Samrat Jha

    chambo isn’t the name sweet?

  • Kenneth Widmerpool

    that will do nicely….COYG!!

  • GoingGoingGooner

    Monreal on Thauvin might have been a yellow

  • para

    Come on lads, more shots and a few runs for a while.

  • blackfoox

    @para,

    agreed… montreal’s run just showed us whats really lacking in the game…

  • Andy Mack

    I find Ox really frustrating. He runs at them and get them to commit, and he shoots when he gets the chance, which not enough of the others do. However his shooting isn’t great, his movement is really erratic and he does give the ball away much too much. But he scored because he made the effort and the other haven’t……
    If he hadn’t scored then I’d be considering swapping him for HFB, actually I’m still considering it………

  • blackfoox

    run run run!

  • Menace

    Not an Ox goal. It was our first incisive Colostomy goal.

  • Samrat Jha

    the game’s being played at a pedestrian pace. Need more energy down the middle.

  • blackfoox

    giroud coming on!!!

  • Damilare

    Stupid commentary on tv… ‘away fans are not real fans, they are cheering Arsenal when they aren’t really playing well. The home fans are less forgiving’…or something like that. How stupid of the media to think cheering your team makes you unreal

  • blackfoox

    arteta coming on soon it seems 😀

  • para

    Not good at all, not good. We cant score(it was OG) against 10 men? (They should be made to watch this game for the rest of the week)

    I still see many problems with our team the way we are playing. We need to step up back to our level soon. Looks like we have lost our cohesion a lot.

    Lucky today, imagine if Newcastle had all their men? 🙁 🙁 🙁

    Still, 3 points is what we need. 🙂

  • Marcus

    oh well I’ll take the 3 points this way. Re group after the internationals but if we continue to play like this I see us not scoring in many more matches.

  • Damilare

    Newcastle fans applauding their team after the match despite the loss. Now that’s supporting your team.
    Valuable 3points in the bag.
    COYG

  • Gord

    I got to watch much of the second half, as opposed to reading about it. The referee was wrong to allow that Newcastle substitution when Arsenal had a free kick in a dangerous place.

    With 7 cards in a game, is Newcastle fined?

    I thought Giroud was unlucky a couple of times.

    Nice to see the win though.

  • Andrew Crawshaw

    Para, imagine if we had got our penalty and the second Newcastle player had been sent off.!

  • Jayramfootball

    3 points vital and the only really important stat.

    Positives:
    Monreal, Gabriel , bellerin and coquelin who was motm by a country mile.

    Negatives:
    No pace in our game
    Little creativity
    Missed chances when the did come

    Summary:
    We need a striker.
    Ramsey was given motm because BT sport continue their campaign to undermine Ozil.
    We need a striker.
    Boring tippy tappy for most of the game.
    Oh and we need a striker.

  • Menace

    Andrew Crawshank – spot on. Imagine if we had no PGMO. What a wonderful world it would be.

  • Gord

    I just looked at the BBC, Guardian and DailyMail commentaries, and none of them even blinked at Newcastle being allowed a substitution on the Arsenal free kick. Isn’t that what these damned muppets are supposed to be doing?

  • WalterBroeckx

    As I did have time suddenly to see the match I wrote a match report that is on line now

  • Andy Mack

    If they hadn’t had a player sent off then they’d probably have pushed forward a bit and given TW/OG/AS/Ox a bit more space to try for a goal. Ten man defending tends (tries) to make it difficult for the attacking team to score.
    Really disappointed with the pace of our game though.

  • Menace

    Our players, specially Ramsey seem to be too focused on passing rather than scoring. Alexis also needed to curve some distant shots to keep Krul interested.

    Blocks on shots are better than loss of ball because of poor passing.

    I noticed Mariner said to Santi – ‘I had to’ when booking him. Why he had to was to reduce the pressure that home support were putting on him. I think Santi should ask for that booking to be removed because it didn’t warrant a booking.

  • Mick

    Para, stop being so bloody pessimistic all the time, do you ever have a good word to say. Is your name short for paranoid

  • Laen

    Take a bow West ham and palace. Excellent work.

  • Florian

    Para, relax now:)
