    Nearly 20 goals by half-time from 8 games. Wow.

    Great result for Arsenal and nice goals all round and in recent weeks this Ramsey kid is looking a great little gem (he was amazing for Wales U21 last week). Good old Rooney scores again tonight and had a goal wrongly disallowed too though Berb's goals were both offside so real score was 2-0:p

    I was surprised at how easy the Arsenal made it look. Granted, with a make shift defense there were some serious questions at the back (Silvestre's lack of games shows), but it was a bold attacking display at one of the most hostile grounds in the world. Well done.

    I didn't see the United Celtic match (forgot set the DVR :mad:). I see Berbatov scored a couple. Did he celebrate, or in typical Berbatov fashion couldn't be bothered and lay down for a nap?

    ^I heard a rumour that he actually smiled in the post-match interview.

    From what I can gather, Ronaldo is trying to out-sulk him these days.

    What annoys us Gooners somewhat is that Eduardo's leg was hanging on to the rest of his body by little more than skin, he nearly lost it, yet he's back in less than a year.

    Tomas Rosicky, on the other hand, picked up a minor knee injury in January and hasn't been seen since.

    Oh, and Spurs, it now hurts to laugh. Thanks.

    I wish I were a Newcastle fan at the moment - it must be fantastic not to be the biggest joke team in the Premiership for a while!

    I see it's Forest v Cardiff tomorrow. Hope my boys push Calderwood out for you NX 01 Mark!

    It would be nice if you could find a way to do that and give us 3 points :lol:

    It really is amazing that Eduardo's going to actually be able to walk again, let alone play football. Once I saw the injury I was convinced he would lose his foot.

    Rosicky's case is a sad one, I think if he could just stay fit he'd be a great addition to the side. As cold as it sounds though, I wonder how much longer he can be allowed to sit on the sidelines before the club decides to part ways with him.

    ^I've changed my mind about what annoys us Gooners.

    What annoys us Gooners is pictures of our F***ING CAPTAIN WITH A CIGARETTE IN HIS MOUTH! :mad: :mad: :mad::brickwall::censored:

    Actually that makes me a little happy. I sort of hope he does it a few more times so Wenger strips him of the arm band.

    Yeah Cesc is young, but he's always shown passion and determination, not to mention a maturity beyond his years, so I'd rather see him wear the band.

    Toure should be captain

    I suppose they could sell him to Tottenham. They'd probably make him the new captain.

    I'm amazed to this day Toure didn't get the armband.

    Tomalak come on surely you would never wish a transfer to Tottenham on even your most hated player?

    They could do with a defender right about now. With the suspensions, injuries and Assou-Ekotto they have, Spurs will probably have to play something like 1-8-1 tomorrow.

    0-1 and 3 points to the 'diff thank you very much Forest!
