    Billy, good one as always….Well, looks like you had a good medical care, the past week. You’ve turned normal again. After being Zombied ie…

    Mr Wenger spoke about his English (and Welsh) players ……….. And it is not my fault if Ramsey is Welsh!”

    Some times I feel, Ramsey being ‘Welsh’ has a lot to do with the criticism he collects…..I hope he sustains his strong run to the end of the season and then take the next step.

    Aren’t the entire lot of Scots,Welsh,Northern Irish and English all Great Britains, although what is so great about them I personally don’t know!
    Good purview Billy and absolutely twisted as usual!

    BBC is being its usual, attentive self in covering the Arsenal game.

    Of course, some expert (Steve Claridge at 1518) says that it wasn’t a red card at all, just a yellow. At 1628 they notice that Tomas Rosicky is no longer playing, and that Jack Wilshere is. They completely missed that Lukas Podolski has joined the action and that Theo Walcott has left. As the shots either on target or not has hardly changed in the second half, I gather the bus is well and truly parked.

    Fucking (sorry) important result after what was a not that good game from our boys. Win ugly they said. We’ve just done that.

    Per is such a BFG and not just for his goal

    And Everton lost so they are not well out of the race for the CL spots

    Very good win. Away, playing badly, clean sheet.

    Should have kept my mouth shut about Sidwell’s card. Said it looked red, but I’d feel hard-done-by if it happened to us.

    Now I do feel hard-done-by. Wonder if with United next week we will appeal Giroud’s red (is it worth trying?)

    I think my heart is weaker week by week, but worth it, 3 important points.

    SKY pundits seemed to infer Sidwells a nailed on RED. Umed and Arred about ours but as you would expect with Thompson came down on the side of a RED. Well I’ll have to make my mind up when I see it. Either way it wont change the 3 points. Get in. COYG.

    It was really an embarrassing performance against a very average 10 man team. If you still had any doubt that Wenger is not the person to manage Arsenal then this game is the answer.
    This has been going on for years.
    I always complained about the lack of consistency and a winning mentality in the team.
    It’s crystal clear that Wenger’s complacency reflects on his players.
    I cannot see this lot winning a trophy because their manager doesn’t have what it takes to make them true champions.
    If Arsenal plays against ManU like this then it’ll be the easiest away game for them. They’ll lift the trophy at the Emirates, unfortunately. I hope I’m wrong.
    Why bother with Giroud’s red card? I thought that was the only positive in the game today.

    Ours was not a red, he tripped up.

    This game did highlight a weakness in our side that I have been going on about for years. For much of the game when we had the possession, Fulham just stood there rather than coming at us to tackle and our reaction to this is to always do nothing. It’s as though because we are not playing out of the way of danger, then there is nothing to do.

    @ stuart

    I believe the weakness was because of walcott, he doesn’t play well as a second striker, he is a typical winger and moves only on the right, that is why when Gervinho play we always have chances, its just the finishing that kills us then….

    Giroud`s Red card can be a good thing, cause in the last two matches he was over stressed and needs a break, too much pressure on him, I believe Wenger didn`t want to take him off so he doesnt become the next Ramsey/Gervinho type of destroyed players by their own fans…..

    By the way, Giroud was the PLan B Wenger wanted to get through Bendtner and Chamack but they failed, he shall not be our main striker, but due to Podolski`s injury (which requires an operation in the summer so he is not starting) he had to stick by him…..

    Again 17 Goals 13 Assists for a Plan B type of player is not bad…yes he was not on form at all in the last two games, but he is not what some call, support instead of destroy…

    Man OF The Match for me, first I wanted to choose Ramsey, but Kosienly in the last 20min. was superb, Sczenzney what unbelievble display, and so is Sagna and Mertesacher…

    Also as we always slaughter the refs for their mistakes ( Bias) on this site I would Love to praise the assistant referee (girl referee), WOW she is so good, I would say best assistant i have ever noticed

    Are the blogs for your real team really that boring that you need to keep popping up here?

    A good post, Billy, except you failed to mention Fulham’s stand with a detachable back which can be lowered to become a viewing area for the Boatrace.

    Yassin,
    I know what you are saying but what I am talking of has been going on for years. We seem to play so much better when the opponent tries to shut us down all the time rather than wait for us to bring the game to them. We just have no ideas when they stand there waiting and therefore pass the ball back and forth waiting for some magic to happen somewhere.

    @Stuart, this is certainly true, too much sideways passing with no imagination. Our football at times is just too ponderous. Still we won and that’s what matters.

    As for Giroud’s red, well he connected with the player’s ankle, nobody tripped up.

    We won playing badly. If Utd did this, and they do, everyone would be hailing there tenacity, grit and deternination to win no matter what. When we do, our ‘fans’ still come on here,(why they have to blight this site when theres others with far more like minded ‘neg-heads’ is beyond me) whingeing and whineing. We did’nt play well. We won. What’s not to like. Our suppossed inability to break teams down has resulted in us being top scorers at home. Our supposed rubbish defending has enabled us to have the best away deffence in the PL. Our team is doing us proud but we are not as yet quite good enough to win the PL and alas keep falling frustratingly short in the cups. But this is due entirely to the fact that we have spent £400 Million on a new stadium while others have been ‘Given’ similar amounts to spend on players. When this inballance is addressed by the paying off of the stadium debt and (to a lesser degree as most of it wont work) the implementation of the ‘fair play’ rules we will start to win things. Either way my love for all things Arsenal is as strong and joyous as ever. Neg heads please ‘do one’ this is a site for lovers of Arsenal Football Club and not johnny come lately glory hunters.

    Rupert,
    The replay they showed on the TV I was watching showed there was no contact and the player slipped after (only very shortly after but it was after) the supposed incident. No Red for me, I thought this prior to the replay also.
