Report: Arsenal 2-0 Sp*rs


Arsenal: Fabianski, Sagna, Koscielny, Vermaelen, Monreal, Arteta, Wilshere, Rosicky, Gnabry, Cazorla, Walcott

Subs: Viviano, Jenkinson, Mertesacker, Flamini, Ozil, Podolski, Ju-Young Park

Arsenal secured their passage into the 4th round of the FA Cup with a 2-0 North London derby win against Sp*s this afternoon.

Arsene Wenger made a number of changes to his starting line up. Lukasz Fabianski came in for Wojciech Szczesny, Thomas Vermaelen replaced Per Mertesacker, Tomas Rosicky was recalled in midfield in place of Mathieu Flamini and there was a place in the side for young German Serge Gnabry. Theo Walcott played up front in place of Lukas Podolski who dropped to the bench.

The game started at a frenetic pace with Sp*rs winning an early corner which saw Sagna block a Dembele shot, while at the other end Gnabry got to the byline and pulled a ball back for Walcott which was just behind the England man.

The visitors then had the first big chance of the game. A ball deflected behind the Arsenal defence into the path of Christian Eriksen but his shot to the near post was well saved by Fabianski. At the other end a swift Arsenal break saw Walcott shoot from distance and Lloris scrambled to push the ball around the post.

It was Walcott again as the Gunners piled on the pressure, this time a left footed effort curled just wide with the help of a deflection, and from the resulting corner Gnabry fizzed a shot just over the bar.

Thomas Vermaelen picked up an 18th minute yellow card for a foul on Dembele and there were hearts in mouths when he slid in on Soldado a few minutes later, but did win the ball. Santi Cazorla curled a shot a couple of feet wide before Theo Walcott had the best Arsenal chance thus far.

Gnabry showed great strength to hold off the Sp*rs defence and the home side worked the ball behind the last man. Walcott’s shot was saved as Lloris came out to narrow the angle, but perhaps if he’d looked up he’d have seen Monreal unmarked at the back post and a square ball would surely have set him up.

But a few minutes later Arsenal were ahead. Gnabry picked the ball up in midfield, drove towards the Sp*rs box and played the ball into the path of Santi Cazorla. The Spaniard smashed the ball past Lloris from angle to make it 1-0.

Arsenal were on top but failed to take advantage of some good positions, poor balls by Walcott and Rosicky might have been better, and Walcott’s snapshot from a half-cleared corner flew over the bar.

An obvious Sp*rs tactic was the rotational fouling on Jack Wilshere. Dembele got away with a backwards headbutt, and the lilywhite players took it in turns to foul the Arsenal midfielder. Soldado, in particular, was lucky to get away without a card.

Late in the half a Cazorla free kick almost found Sagna at the back post and Sp*rs did well to prevent the Spaniard getting on a bouncing ball in the box. Soldado shot wide just before the break and Arsenal took the 1-0 lead in with them.

Arsenal made a half-time change, bringing on Per Mertesacker for Thomas Vermaelen, the Belgian’s cut knee forcing the move. Sp*rs had a couple of early corners and Arsenal tried to get on top just as in the first half. Cazorla and Monreal combined well on a number of occasions, but they had their moments too.

Soldado shot wide again and Adebayor found some space in the box and looked to have turned Mertesacker but he fell over while making the shot. At the other end the impressive Gnabry fed Walcott who went around the keeper, but the angle was too tight for his shot which hit the side netting.

But in the 62nd minute the Gunners doubled the lead. Danny Rose had the ball in the centre circle. Rosicky put him under pressure, robbed the ball, ran the length of the half, into the Sp*rs box and dinked it over the keeper from close range. There were shades of Michael Thomas ‘Oh God, he’s held onto it too long!’, but the run and finish were top class.

Monreal and Walker traded penalty incidents at both ends with Mark Clattenburg, probably rightly, waving play on in either case, before Flamini came on to replace Wilshere. Cazorla tried a long range effort over Lloris which fell wide before Walcott shot just wide after careless Sp*rs play on the edge of their box.

Mesut Ozil replaced Arteta in the 75th minute and the filthy scummers were shouting for a penalty when the ball hit Cazorla’s arm but the referee rightly played on because they are filthy scummers.

Arsenal were forced to play the final 10 minutes with 10 men as Theo Walcott was stretchered off with what looked like a nasty knee injury. His studs got caught in the turf and he looked to wrench his knee. As he carried off he made a 2-0 gesture to the Sp*rs fans who pelted him with missiles, the filthy scummers.

The scummers tried to press with the extra man but because they are abject wankers they couldn’t take advantage. In fact, it was Arsenal who almost scored again, an Ozil shot tipped around the post by Lloris.

In the end, Arsenal held them at arms length and went into the 4th round of the cup. “We’ve only got 10 men”, sang the Gooners.

Better 10 men than 11 filthy useless scummers. Up the arse.


    • dont know what to be more happy about, Gnabry’s display, adebayor being at the bottom of Kosielny’s pocket, walcott’s 0-2, teaching united how its done, wilshere’s shere will power or just giving sp*rs a spanking!

      • Or the spuds spending almost £60m on two solid gold turds- Soldado (can’t seem to do anything except shank the ball at 90 degree angles and occasionally get a bit cross) and Lamela (can’t even get into their first team because the way is barred by ‘superstars’ such as Chadli and Bentaleb).

        It’s like a sort of footballing Greek cycle- as if the gods have decided to expose the wanton hubris of this country’s tired old pundits by making a total mockery of the prevailing narrative we had rammed down our throats in the summer. If nothing in the past has truly confirmed their incompetence then this really does. I hope Hansen, Townsend and all their c*nty cohorts get the sack. COYG!!!

        Also, the Bentaleb stamp was particularly thuggish. Hope Flam gave him a slap in the tunnel.

    • Best bit is 2-0 up, after 70th min, in total control, so we get a chance to give the £40+ mil midfielder a run out — the world class player we didn’t need to beat them.

      With luck Theo is just precautionary, but also shows we didn’t even need 11 men, and gave Theo a chance to make the move of the game on a stretcher.

      Oh, and the fans singing: ‘Tim Sherwood is a Gooner.’ 🙂

    • We need to verify his age, we have heard stories of players reducing their age to be able to play for longer, but in his case, I suspect he was so talented at a very young age to the extend that they had to increase his age to allow him to play with adults.
      He is a beast, and how he manages to run as much as he does for 90 minutes is beyond me.

      • He’s our Giggs (Only better, of course). Fergiue may have been a purple nosed dick, but he did show us what you do when you have a player (or two), who just keep on going and going at a top level and they want to play for you forever. Rosicky wants to reture a Gooner and a Winner and we would be stupid to let some other team have the next 7 years of his brilliance and non-stop running. He wants to stay. He wants a contract. Bloody well give him one.

        When our younger stars have off days and we are in danger of faltering who is it that consistently steps up and drags a result out of us? Who just runs and runs loike a bloody duracell monkey? (But with more end product). Who is the only player we have both fast enough and smart enough to steal the ball on the halfway line, run into the area, and while being pushed hard from behind (in a fair but form way, I must admit), not only stays on his feet but slips the perfect shot past the onrushing keeper? He wants to stay. He wants a contract. Bloody well give him one.

  2. Performances like this and in the NLD of all games make me love Arsenal even more. I

    can only dream what the atmosphere must have been like. I had the pleasure of traveling to the emirates for the Fenerbace game in august all the way from Oregon, north west corner of the states. It was the one of the highlights of my life, can’t wait to return one day!

    As for the game, all around phenomenal performance from the boys. Made the spuds look like the shit team they are. Gnabry was a beast, very composed, willing to tackle and man is he built for an 18 year old. Certianly a bright future for him. But my man of the match would have to be Cazorla, dominated the his area of the pitch and scored a peach of a goal!

    Also I loved seeing Rosicky talking to Gnabry in the 82nd saying something like this is what its all about son! Great to see the veterans mentoring the youngsters. Give him a new contract!

    • Yes, certainly from a spectator’s point of view that seemed easier than most games we’ve played this season. Both their strikers were in Koscielny/Vermaelen’s pockets, and their only dangerous moments came when Eriksen/Dembele charged through from midfield early in the first half. They did not have enough men in midfield and were defensively idiotic. We could have had a couple more if Theo and Gnabry had a little luck. Honeymoon period over for Sherwood, he’ll be sacked in May alright!

    Gnabry played very well, we always seemed dangerous with his pace combined with Rosicky and co.

    Great to see Rosicky score, sign him up Wenger.

    • I had a strange lack of nerves for this one. Watched it right the way through without worrying. Strange, because before the match started I must admit I was a little worried that Spurs might be on a resurgence.
      For a moment I thought Spurs might be about to swamp the PL with superior play like a tidal wave, but after a few minutes of watching the game I realised that all Sherwood has actually managed to do is splash the toilet seat.

    1. I think it is safe to say that Serge Gnabry is now a legitimate 1st team option going forward in midfield. Excellent.
    2. Sp*rs are worthless assclowns.
    3. Theo really put in a shift today. Hope he is ok. 9 days rest will do good for the lad, along with the rest of the lot.
    4. Sp*rs suck…out loud.
    5. Koscielny the best center half in England?
    6. Rosicky still has one hell of an engine in him….
    7. Walker and Dembele are truly arseholes of the highest order.
    8. I was surprised Ozil came on instead of Jenks and move Sagna to center half.
    9. Santi….that was such venom. There was never a doubt.
    10. Beating those waste products is so so sweet.

  16. Gnabry is well on his way to being the best wing in the world.

    And another fantastic game from Rosicky. Come on Wenger, what are you waiting for, give him a 3 year contract at least. After all, Man United’s best midfielder is a WW2 veteran.

    Hopefully Walcott’s injury isn’t too bad. He did well at CF.

    Can’t believe we haven’t seen Gnabry more this season. Very similar to a beast called the OX we already have.

  24. I think we did Sp*rs a favour by limiting the amount of their fans in to watch their shitty team lose against us. Who says Arsenal are not kind to their rivals?

    Well done Gnabs, Rosicky, Fabianski, Monreal (against spastic lennon and speed freak Walker), Walcott for doing a little bit more than what Podolski would offer upront plus bonus points for reminding the hopeless spuds who the kings of N5 are. 10 men for the last few and they still couldn’t breach our defence with their £100 mill ‘superteam’, albeit plagued by injuries.

    What should have been the last nail in the coffin was when at 2 nil up we bought on Mesut freaking Özil and had Walcott stayed on I believe we would have found the net at least twice more. Again, we proved that we can lock it down at the back and hold a result.

  25. Gnabry was amazing. People are creaming themselves over Januzaj but that’s because United’s midfield is so shit that they have to rely on a 19 year old.

    Gnabry is just as good and I really hope he gets more playing time. He has genuine speed, power, technical ability, and an excellent shot plus good vision (the pass to Cazorla was something that Cesc or Özil would be proud of). Like Arsene said, he is physically ready for the top level as well as technically.

  26. Good win, but could have been very different had fabianki not save early on. Vermaelen isn’t good enough for me, two rash challenges, one got a card, the other was literally last ditch because his position is so poor.

  28. The score line actually feels more than a 2-0, more like a 5-0. Possibly because it’s 2 we scored + Ade + Danny Rose (who btw was my MoM) + it’s the spuds!

  29. Tomas Rosicky! The Benjamin Button of football. He was outstanding tonight. Better then all of the CRAP Spuds bought for 100 million. If you want to see a warrior on the pitch look no further then our Czech. Seeing him play that brilliantly and with such vigour i cannot but help feel a bit of regret and sadness. Injury robbed us of a wonderful footballers peak years at the top of his game. A lot of people said that it was Eduardo’s injury that derailed our title challenge in 07/08 but I feel that the loss of Rosicky was a much bigger blow. Atleast we are getting to see the Little Mozart perform at the twilight of his career. Sign him up Arsene. Lets win it for him.Cmon you Gooners!

He could have played Cazorla who was in a nice and easy situation to score in 1st half… Also in 2nd, Flamini could’ve scored if he passed to him… Don’t like that about him, the only thing. The same was in one of the games in PL, when Sanogo came off the bench, Walcott could’ve assisted him for the goal, it would’ve done wonders for Sanogo’s confidence to get that 1st goal, instead Walcott tried from a very tough angle..

    • I have no problem at all with Theo fancying a shot everytime he have an opportunity , because :
      .he is a striker.
      .by doing it, he maintains the attention of defenders on him,therefore making them marking him thighter.So with his run he can take them out of a zone, liberating space for another mate to run in.
      .we don’t have enough players with an eye for a goal (giroud,podolski,ramsey,bendtner), everyone else is already trying to create a “easier” goal for a teammate.

  36. What a fantastic match! We had quality all over the pitch. It was a bit nervous the first ten minutes, but after that we settled in and controlled the whole game. Big props once again to our defence, who were rock steady throughout, and special congrats to Vermaelen for finishing the first half despite getting clattered twice and having his knee cut up. Koscielny was outstanding, and I’m guessing Adebayor is feeling pretty cramped in Koscielny’s back pocket along with Suarez, Torres, Gignac, and Lewandoski.

    Arteta was very good, and although Wilshere didn’t have his best match, he was still effective. We really shone in attack, and all of Cazorla, Rosicky, Gnabry, and Walcott were excellent. Walcott made superb runs throughout and was unlucky not to score, and his pace pulled the Spurms defense apart time and time again. Gnabry made a great case for more playing time – he’s simply fearless! But the MOTM has to be Rosicky. He never stopped running for the whole 90 minutes, and it was his persistent pressing and tackling that got us our second goal. And what karma it was that it was Rose whom he stripped of the ball!

    Hopefully Walcott’s injury isn’t serious. But I think if it was he wouldn’t have been sitting up in the stretcher on the way off showing that two-nil sign! What a guy!

    That was a brilliant team performance, and I’m full of optimism. We are going all the way!

  39. I was on the train early to the game with my 59 year old Dad — we were the only people on the carriage — he was wearing his Arsenal scarf. Unluckily at one of our stops the hardcore Sp*rs fans got on, the ones who look like creatures in Lord of the Rings, sans clubs, with loads of police on the platform. They were rocking the train carriage, bashing the glass etc, and they were screaming abuse in my Dad’s face while videoing it on their mobile phones. One in particular was jumping up and down while holding onto the ceiling bar like a crazed monkey, provocatively smashing his knees against my Dad. Thanks Arsenal for making my day today, you were fluid as fuck, and cheers Walcott for doing what I wanted to do to the Spurs fans from the view of your stretcher. Only scummers would pelt missiles at someone on a stretcher. You’ll always be shit, you’ll always be shiiiiiittt. Tottenh*m H*tsp*r, you’ll always be shit!

    • i saw some spurs fans doing something similar after the game in kings x station, abusing some poor old chap for absolutely no reason. by the way these are middle aged adults i’m talking about not stupid kids who don’t know better, no excuse, fucking pricks. they really got what they deserved today, precisely fuck all.

  40. Who do those spurs fans think they are, throwing money at walcott?

    You’d have thought they’d know about wasting money, they didi plenty of that in the summer transfer window.

  41. Are you stupid jammathon? Being 1-0 up with 51 minutes played and doing ole’s is not the smartest thing to do, and is a lot different from 2-0 up in the 80th minute.

  42. I’m having a roast chicken for dinner.

    Funny the Spurs gaffer babbling on about a lack of squad depth when they were the ones who bought an entire team (of shite) of of bale’s proceeds and every pundit in the land hailed their ambition over us. As I recall, they were making the point that no Arsenal player could get into the Spurs team.

    Great pretenders for 17 seasons. 14 managers and counting and none the closer to a consistent top 4 finish never mind the title which they have not won since black and white TV (and they are concern with our little trophy drought…bless them)

    As envisioned, Sherwood was naive going toe to toe with us and employing two (useless) strikers.

    Wenger gambled a bit with Gnabry on but the youngster did him proud.

    I thought we would get good joy from Podolski and Walcott on the break with Spurs likely to cede space coming at us due to their delusions.

    But Podolski was not needed and our midfield of small men once again ran rings round their orcs.

    Could have been a bigger score line and once again, statistics don’t tell the whole story. We dominated them and were never really in any danger save the Erickson chance earlier on and the one Adebayor scuffed.

    Excellent graft by Rosicky who must have a footballing age of 19! Walcott was brilliant and unlucky, his use of space showed and increase acumen. You have to love his respond to the press reminding them that it was Spurs misfortune to play us at this time. Good on him to remind the daft Bantam weight fans of the scoreline at the end too…bless him.

    But again, solid solid performance at the back and where we would have been nervy down to 10 men in recent past, you could feel the lads wanted the clean sheet and worked hard to keep it (Santi!)

    On that note, I feel Santi despite his jolly nature is a competitive little man and the introduction of Ozil has only served to spur him on to elevate his game. You could feel his frustration not scoring over recent games and the elation having buried that!

    Put in their places the cocks and pundits….again.

  43. Will adebayor stop trying now. Usually his territory once a couple of games go against his way. To see him lay down against United take his shin pads off and wait to be carried off when they got one back. Told us all you need yo know about his character. Only short of carrying himself off on the stretcher. Good display today. One for the fans me thinks.

  44. The media is right, Spurs showed great ambition in the summer and spent well.

    Giroud > Soldado
    Betdner > Adebawhore
    Podolski > Defoe

    Walcott > Townsend
    Chambo> Lennon
    Santi > Chadli
    Ozil >Erickson
    Jack > Lamella
    Arteta >Dembele
    Flamini >Capoue
    Rosicky >Sandro
    Ramsey > Paulinho

    Gibbs > Rose
    Sagna > Walker
    Per > Dawson
    Koscielny > Vertonghen

    The only player that could get into the Arsenal team is possibly Lloris and he’ll have to fight Szsc for first.

    Money very well spent indeed. Keep throwing it away.:D

    18 seasons and counting finishing below us. 14 different managers and rarely in top 4. Last won the title when TV was black and white and they want to worry about our little blip.

    Spurs, the gift that keeps on giving.;)
