Post Match: Arsenal vs. Everton (4-1)

An unusual win. Three goals off long balls (one from Almunia) and no creativity or spark until Fabregas and Hleb came off. After going 1-0 down in the first twenty minutes due to some sorry defending from a corner, it seemed as the optimistic 4-4-2 we used, with Bendtner, Eduardo and Diaby all starting, was going to fail .

After the narrow win over Tottenham (2-1) over the weekend and the excruciating draw at Pompey (0-0), some fresh ideas are needed for tomorrow's game against Everton. The team is tired and Wenger is stuck. Simply put, the 4-5-1 has killed our creativity and ability to score, resulting in our drop in the table.

Whoa. Arsenal is facing AC Milan in the next round, with the first leg at the Emirates on February 20th and the second leg at the San Siro on March 4th. An unbelievable draw (though I guessed it), and a tantalizing prospect for neutrals. This game will be simply massive.

A nail-biting conclusion to cap off a fine effort by our young stars. The Carling Cup is once again the showcase for Arsenal's young talent, and with an average age of 20, Arsenal beat Blackburn's normal squad. Diaby opened up scoring in the sixth minute with a deft volley and Eduardo solidified Arsenal's lead only ten minutes later.

Post Match: Arsenal vs. Chelsea (1-0)

What a win. A gutsy, confident performance where we matched Chelsea's tenacity and vigor step for step. It may not have been one of our greatest performances, but it displayed a deep fortitude which few suspected from Arsenal. Captain Fantastico William Gallas cemented his place as a leader with the game-winning goal, and the Mr.

"I believe without a doubt that this season will be the most exciting year in the Premier League ever. Since I've been here you have never had four teams as tight as this. It's very difficult to pick one out of the three contenders. For me all three are the same [strengths] but for different reasons.

A disappointing night all around. We won 2-1, but Sevilla demolished Slavia 3-0 and we are resigned to second place. Honestly, our game was forgettable - the great work by Walcott in the first half disappearing in the second, with the return of Robin van Persie being the most notable event of the game.

Finally we have the chance to overcome the past two very poor results. Tomorrow's match against the Romanians seems to be straightforward, but injuries have decimated the squad and Wenger may be looking towards Sunday's huge match against Chelsea.

Howdy readers. I am the new blogger for Arsenal, and I can only hope I can do the club some justice. I'm a student living in Vermont, so suffice to say my life isn't that interesting. I would like to move onto something you are interested in - namely l'Arse.

As you may have guessed from the light posting lately, my personal schedule has changed and I'll no longer be able to continue blogging at The Offside.

The last 15 months here at the Arsenal Offside have been a blast for me, and I hope that you regulars have enjoyed yourselves as well.

Arsenal are still top of the table, of course, and I look forward to following along with the next writer here at Arsenal Offside.

Aston Villa 1-2 Arsenal

A nice comeback and clinical performance for the visiting Gunners. Villa had opened up a 1-0 lead early on at Villa Park, courtesy of Craig Garnder. To be honest, I thought that Villa's streak (four straight wins) and the injury bug that had been catching up to Arsenal, might be enough for the hosts to take or at least share the points.
