What I want to know is this: exactly what happened in the dressing room at half time? Any ideas? Was it even legal?

The first half was one of those end of season games between two mid-table sides with nothing to play for. Only it shouldn't have been. Sure, the odd bit of skill here and there, but generally looking more like twenty two footballers who had never met before.

Wham Bang, thank you Arsenal.

There was a point towards the end of August, when despite Arsenal's only summer signing being Yaya Sanogo, the papers were insistent that Lukas Podolski was about to move to Schalke in a swap deal for Kyrgiakos Papadopoulos. Even ignoring the press' obsession with pretending that real life is like Football Manager and that swap deals are a regular and realistic option for clubs, it raised a very important point: Arsenal bought Podolski for around 11 million pounds, a cheap fee because his beloved Köln had been relegated.

I cannot recall a similar player in the Arsenal shirt; immensely strong, a lethal finisher who possesses phenomenal shooting power and in the prime of his career at 28 y.o.. Yet despite having over 100 caps for the German National team he cannot find a set place in the Arsenal side.

Safe passage to round 5 of the cup was secured last night with a 4-0 win over Coventry City.

Arsenal 2-2 Swansea: Arsenal, exhausted

That Arsenal drew last night's game against Swansea should come as no surprise based on what's happened previously this season.

After the 6-3 at Man City we ploughed out a fairly turgid 0-0 with Chelsea; following that Anfield pounding we drew 0-0 against a United team so bad they should change their name to Phil Collins FC; and even though we were on the brink of victory last night, the fact we contrived to gift them an equaliser, unfortunate as it was, really shouldn't come as any shock.
