YES! we did the double over United! oh wait were still in fourth because we tie Villa and loose to Man City, Bolton etc. Oh well it's always great to beat a rival and this should give us confidence if we are to run into them in the Champions League. About the game though, I thought Clichy's defending and Eboue's cross were great. I was worried about the wing backs coming into today with Ronaldo and Giggs attacking them, but they were fantastic today. I thought that Rosicky and Henry actually were pretty bad, but then they made up for it with the goals. Overall a great game and the team showed great character especially in the last 10mins.
Did they wat? "character especially in the last 10mins" unbelievable
Not all news is good:
Van Persie breaks metatarsal bone
Van Persie is Arsenal's leading scorer this season
Arsenal striker Robin van Persie has broken the fifth metatarsal bone in his right foot, the club have announced.
He sustained the "partial fracture" scoring the equaliser in the Gunners' 2-1 win over Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium.
Van Persie had an X-ray immediately after the game which confirmed the full extent of his injury.
It is likely the Dutchman, who had come on as a second-half substitute, will be out of action for at least six weeks.
A costly joy, you got there then.
2-1 to the arsenal, 2-1 to the arsenal. Fabregas was the best man on the pitch. I mean his confidence is so high right now. He dribbles in dangerous positions without losing the ball. and he controled the tempo of the game quite well. And his defending is getting better and better each game.
For a 19 yr old to play this well is just amazing. If he gets better than this I can only imagine what he will be capable of.
Hats off to Henry too. Ppl slay him off like he did nothing all game but he tried hard and got his just reward with the winning goal. He is a striker and he is there to score goals and get us wins not merit a 9 star performance each game. Still the best striker in the world!!!
are you dissin me or are ya tellin me to drink sum booze?
FIngers crossed for the boys tonight
Yeh fingers crossed for the lads. According to BBC Sport, it's one of the weaker sides we have to choose from so far in the Carling Cup:
Tottenham (from): Robinson, Cerny, Alnwick, Chimbonda, Lee, Dawson, Gardner, Assou-Ekotto, Zokora, Davids, Lennon, Keane, Berbatov, Defoe, Murphy, Ghaly, Malbranque, Huddlestone, Ziegler.
Arsenal (from): Almunia, Hoyte, Toure, Djourou, Connolly, Traore, Walcott, Diaby, Denilson, Julio Baptista, Aliadiere, Poom, Merida, Lansbury, Randall, Adebayor, Senderos, Flamini.
Not keen on Traore v Lennon. Clichy should be in there really, he's still a kid.
2-2 very good result away, it will be interesting to see the lineup for the second leg.
Wow Hleb and Eboue really made the difference. But all credit to the young lads for coming back against a first team Scum side.
So in the end it wasn't the case of a poor side. Great result nevertheless. We should play clichy instead of traore for the second leg, and walcott should play again, although last night he was utter shite.
Ray Parlour was released by Boro and now he's training with Arsenal.
Van Persie could be out untill April
Rest of the season wenger is saying so we have no van persie this season Guess it gives walcott a chance or Julio shame tho V Persie was doing great!!!
As a coach or just leisurely or what? I must say that Walcott has been very poor so far. He's not a patch on Spurs' "supposed equivalent" Lennon, who causes all sorts of problems to full backs, something which Walcott can't seem to do. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt purely because of his age. He may get more first-team experience in forthcoming games at RW whilst Hleb is out, though I don't know whether he deserves it or not. I fancy either Hoyte RB and Eboue RM or Eboue RB and Walcott RW, to see if he can finally play nearly as good as Aliadiere, who's not particularly great and Walcott supposedly is. In which case he is not living up to anything quite near his standards.
Hoyte is really impressing me!
Senderos looks average though.
Yes. Very. And guess what? Another injury! Julio Baptista picked up a groin strain after strolling around the pitch for 10 minutes against Bolton, so rumours suggests that Wenger may have to do some transfers.
