Well, that aside, it's also been generally unsatisfying for this time of the season as a United fan.

That was some terrible defending. Kudos to Falcao but he was made to look sensational by a sleep walking Athletic Bilbao side. One has to say, Falcao seems to be perfecting the art or science of being at the right place and at the right time (see second goal) to take advantage of those errors which is a form of genius.

Mohamed Azmi Muslim made the match interesting when his 30 yard flyer beat Vito Mannone as the defense went to sleep (eye roll, its Arsenal!) just before the end of the first half. By then the Gunners had missed at least three good chances including one from Andre Dos Santos.

Arsene Wenger made a number of substitutions in the second half and late in the half, Nico Yennaris charged down the right latching onto one of Alex Song's preternatural passes.

Robin Van Persie finally scored after his 11th attempt (Six on target, 5 off). But so did Mario Gomez, twice in fact. The German striker showed a wonderful touch, a sort of Bergkampesque pirouette to score his first goal after receiving the ball from Bastian Schweinsteiger.

Schweini was on point again slipping in Gomez as the Dutch criminally went to sleep for Germany's second goal.

A rather tragic story to come out of the Euros this summer, if arriving by way of China: an exceedingly passionate fan has perished due to a multitude of reasons, including and especially the exhaustion which results from 11 days without sleep. All a result of the timing of the Euros.

There really needs to exist some sort of movement, a support system to alter their thinking, for those who refuse to watch games on tape delay.

For example, my leg falls asleep every time I use my iPhone and I think I'm developing an allergy to all birds.

'Great atmosphere, 2 hours before game was almost full stadium, in this atmosphere we couldnt lose
Today I read that Kelantan didnt play so well, problem is that everyone expect 3-0 4-0 but Sime Darby played 8-1-1, after they conceded the goal they changed to 8-0-2.
