Pepe kicked opponent Roberto Lago in the Bernabeus during the match.

Pretty Much The Worst Olivier Giroud Chant You’re Ever Going To Hear… (Video)

All new signings need a chant; this one, we're guessing, probably isn't going to be Olivier Giroud's calling card at the Emirates...

Two things: Firstly, we're pretty sure it's pronounced 'Jeer-oo' (which is by-the-by we suppose ) and secondly, the man is 6'4", which blows the entire chant apart completely.

Stoke 0 – 0 Arsenal: Match Thoughts And Individual Analysis

Desi Gunner at related • 7 views

One point at Stoke is not a bad result on its own. Few visitors will return from the Britannia with three points and that makes it tough to criticize the Arsenal performance. The irony here is that this was probably the Gunners' best defensive display at Stoke but by the end the hosts, having realized their single attacking tactic had failed to generate any threat, just wanted to hang on for a point.

Second match in a row that we have looked devoid of ideas, got a goal out of nothing, and then conceded late on. Long balls, panicky defending, the team looks as scared as a new born lamb walking down Tottenham high road late at night.

The first half was utter tosh. From Lennon there were a few successful crosses but more attempted and failed ones, mixed in with some some promising, yet fruitless runs by Bale.

The Philadelphia Union fell to the Columbus Crew Wednesday night 2-1. The loss effectively marks the end of the Union's playoff hopes for this season even though they may still be mathematically alive. It is unlikely this situation will turn around given the personnel available. I will spare you the gruesome details; suffice to say that the Union managed to lose a "six point" game at home against another mediocre Eastern conference team fighting for a playoff spot while being up a man.
