Away at QPR ….. a good 3 points

Arsenal Arsenal at related • 0 views
Our game against QPR away, turned out an ok 2.1 to the good guys. Many of us saw this as an easy 3 points but we also realised that quite often what looks easy is far from it. The game started where both teams were feeling one another out, we usually have a half hour like that before one or other gets in their stride.

Arsenal moved up to third in the Barclays Premier League with a hard-fought 2-1 win at Crystal Palace.

The Gunners went ahead through an early penalty from Santi Cazorla following a trip by Pape Souare on Danny Welbeck, which the Palace bench protested had been just outside the area.

Referee Mark Clattenburg and his assistant were central to another big call on the stroke of half-time when Welbeck was waved onside and Olivier Giroud netted a second from the rebound after the England forward's shot had been blocked.

Understated Olivier Giroud giving Arsenal a vital edge to their attacking play

World Cup Buzz at related • 0 views

At first glance, Olivier Giroud's stylistic make-up means he probably shouldn't be flourishing in this Arsenal team.

The Gunners' clutch of elusive, incisive attacking midfield players would typically be suited to a sharp, nippy centre-forward; a player who can loiter on the shoulder of the last defender before latching on to a scything through ball.

Well, well, well, that was a walk in the park that almost resulted in a mugging.

Good start, even got a penalty awarded after seven minutes when Alexis is brought down by Traore, what a mug he's learnt nothing since he left Arsenal. I thought there was an unwritten rule that the player fouled doesn't take the penalty, but Alexis refused to give the nominated player, Cazorla, the ball and took it himself.

Not our most convincing performance of the season, but a big three points on a night when all the other teams around us also won.

There were a couple of changes to the team that beat Everton with Tomas Rosicky coming in for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Per Mertesacker replacing Laurent Koscielny at the heart of the defence.

In the opening stages of yesterday's game, it's fair to say there was a nervousness about the crowd after what happened on Wednesday night. It all felt quite flat.

The manager had made a couple of changes, with Gabriel coming in for Mertesacker and Oxlade-Chamberlain for Welbeck, but he kept faith with Olivier Giroud despite how badly it went for him against Monaco.

Two goals in two minutes from Olivier Giroud were enough to secure passage into the quarter-finals of the FA Cup yesterday, but the scoreline didn't really do justice to Arsenal's performance. Boro's Spanish keeper Tomas Mejias made a number of excellent saves, and some of our decision making/final ball wasn't quite up to scratch, but it was a thoroughly deserved win in the end.

Well, that was fun. We chalked up our fifth consecutive win with five goals, and while there's no doubt Villa were quite bad indeed, we've come up against bad teams many times in the past and not done that to them.

We tore into them from the start and probably should have scored before we did with Theo Walcott's pace exposing their high line.

Morning all. A quick Saturday round-up for you, starting with Olivier Giroud who says he's embarrassed and hurt by what happened on Wednesday night.

The striker had what can only be described as a nightmare night, and says he understands why he was taken off on the hour mark (although interestingly, Goodplaya wrote about this afterwards and wondered, despite how badly he was playing, if it was the right decision), but says he'll bounce back quickly.

We've had some inauspicious nights in Europe before, but last night is surely up there with the most disappointing and dispiriting of them all.

Anyone who thought Monaco were going to be an easy touch obviously wasn't paying attention to what they do, but that we made it so easy for them was Wenger's Arsenal at its self-destructive worst.

Morning all, welcome to a brand new week.

The rest of the weekend's results didn't play out quite as nicely as they might have. Although Sp*rs dropped two points it really should have been three as they came back from 2-0 down against West Ham, while Liverpool's good form continued when they beat a Southampton side who I think will more than likely fade away over the remainder of the season.

It's very tight at the top of the table. Leaving aside Chelsea there are just 7 points between Man City in second and Arsenal in sixth.
