A rare occasion where I commend Swansea.

That'll do for that I think.

All the more reason to let us play them...we know their weaknesses

Good result for Cardiff there!

You take the 1st half, we'll have the 2nd . Pity chances are Rooney will be out of any 5th round tie, would love to see him even if he was ripping my team to bits.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I actually got to go to the game! I did have to stand in the away end though so had to be pretty damn quiet and applaud Arsenal every time they did something good. That wasn't too often thankfully - really though, I can now say I've seen up close and personal just how poor Eboue is. Bendtner and Song weren't much good either. And Ramsey, local lad on his return to his club he left in the summer? Woeful.

Really though today the shooting was terrible. I can't recall a single instance of Arsenal shooting from outside the box (although I'm willing to be proved wrong on that as I have trouble seeing the far end of the pitch). Granted Cardiff didn't offer too much in attack, but they squandered one or two good chances as well, not least when McCormack's freekick hit the corner of the post. If that one had gone in...

Entertaining enough - I've still not seen a goal at Ninian Park in 3 attempts though!

Nah, we'll take them. We've already done them once at Pride Park this season

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Notts Forest 2-1 Sheff Wed...

A massive win because our Feb fixtures are not very easy and 4 points clear of the relegation zone (Derby 22nd). It would of been perfect if Watford & Doncaster didn't win but still 2 months ago we where 24th and now where 17th (one more win could take us to 13th by end of weekend).

Also Van De Sar has broken the record for longest time without a goal being scored against him.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Glad I've got Van der Sar in my dreamteam!

Last night typified our problems at the moment. We dominated the game against Birmingham, had countless chances to score, didn't, Birmingham had one effort on target all evening, scored, and won 1-0.

Still, sooner or later, someone's going to catch a hatful. Personally, I'm hoping it'll be in the FA Cup replay!

He couldn't take candy from a baby, hes a little shrimp on legs.

Olympiakos have confirmed they have agreed a deal to sign Blackburn striker Matt Derbyshire.
He's got potential but wow didn't see that one

I've had enough of this useless joke team pretending to be the team I watched when I was younger.

No amount of signings are going to do anything now. Arsenal need a clear-out at all levels - players, staff and the board.

Wenger needs to spend and sell theres no doubt, I would do try to do the following...

100% Sell
Gallas
Senderos
Adebayor (rasie funds)
Rosicky
Song

Possible Buys
Upson
Mertesacker
Richards
Michael Johnson
Barry
Arteta
Yaya Toure

Play the likes of Ramsey, Wilshire and Vela more too instead of saying too young to play 9no such thing in football).

After tonight, I don't want to see Arsene Wenger in charge of another signing at this football club. Right now, only Eduardo and Sagna are good enough. The rest of them are overpaid, lazy, spoiled children who can go pick up the wages they don't earn somewhere else.

You can sell Gallas to us but Milan should never buy a guy like Senderror.

Arghh!! I can't believe Ancelotti substituted Seedorf for Sendero today in the 80th minute. FFS!

Personally I'd rather Coventry caught a hatful off us on Saturday and we sneaked the forest game with a last minute goal that bounces off Savage's backside!
