Chelsea will lose. If we win, we’re back in it??


One can only hope :/


I’m not falling for this one again.

Andy Mack

You got the Chavski result correct.
Now for the second part!

We do tend to play better when it’s a late kick off and weather is warm.


Up the Arse!

AN Other

Don’t think we will win the league but of we could finish 2nd or 3rd with only few points off the top then that would be considered as step in right direction.


Should we consider the 3 heavy as 3 steps back? Since they are significant, and no fan can tell me that all they mean is just another 3(9) points dropped.

jack jack jack

Really hope Santi plays in the central no 10 role this time. His best games by far have come in that position. Come on the Arsenal! Let’s get a bit of pride back eh.

Bobby doo

This set up has loss all over it…


Nothing of late has indicated we have enough to win this so please, even if we lose i want to see players die on the pitch. Oh and respectable scoreline pris!


Boys have to give their all today to stop us being dragged into a 4th place scrap. Need a huge defensive display today and I smell a goal from a defender today. COYG.


LOL. Subs: 7 other twats. Up the arse

American Gooner

HAHAHA fuck John Terry. What a header he scored


no pace in the side though… only rosicky who can do some dashing runs for giroud or santi to play him in


Agreed. I’m scared that Arsene is thinking in terms of controlling possession. The more likely scenario is that City keep coming at us and we have no pace on the counter to hurt them. Let’s hope I’m wrong.

Eddy The Gooner

1 difensive mid! Arsenal is losing big again


Arteta AND Flamini starting.


I think Arsene got the lineup wrong again. He was correct to start both Arteta and Flamini, but we need one of Ox or Gnabry starting. This lineup has absolutely no pace or width.

Andy Mack

Which one?
Arteta (who’s playing) or Famini (Who’s playing?

Trex d Gunner

Best goal the cunt has ever scored. Hahahahaha.

Petit's Handbag

I reckon if I say something really disparaging here we’ll win….Arteta & Flamini can’t play together

Fest Arse



Hahaha John terry


Terry with an own goal. This might be our lucky day.

Watching Terry, Moaninho, Hazard and other Chelsea twats at full time was very cathartic.


Well, Tony Pulis show how it dones


TONY PULIS IN!!!!!!!!!


Seven other twats? I don’t know about you but I can’t find a reason to hate City players (except those that left us to join them). It is not like it’s their fault that the club has an oil tycoon as an owner. They are not cunts, play relatively fair. Or do we just hate them cause they are so good? If yes, then that’s sad and bitter.


I hate ’em cos they’re part of a plastic, oil soaked Sugar Daddy fest. Those fuckers hadn’t even heard of second division City when they were kids. Money, money, money…


Good to see Flamini in and Chambo out, but can’t shake the feeling Kallstrom should start to add a little of the unknown in and give balance alongside the flam.


Tony Pulis for Prime Minister!
JT OG. Now make this weekend a good one lads. Win and….I’m saying no more.

I saw the Chav game live as I live abroad now and at the final whistle I shouted so many expletives it was ridiculous. It had to do with Chelsea/F OFF/Suck that Maureen you sad prick/and baring my arse on Maureen’s face.

Come on lads!


It’s incredible, isn’t it, that we can ship 6 goals to a Chelsea made to look pretty ordinary by Crystal Palace.

Kingsley Tochukwu

Arteta and Flamini that’s good but there is no pace. By God’s grace we wil win.

Top Gunner

I agree with Gargoyle, I would prefer City winning the title ahead of Chelsea.
Actually I would prefer anyone winning the title over Chelsea, apart from them lot ofcourse 😉

Dial square

Podolski??? Blimey he’ll have to put a shift in, tracking back, not really his game though….who cares let’s beat ’em 5-4….


Arteta no. Kallstrom yes. Bad feelings confirmed.

Still, well done Palace. Show us how it’s done.


Glad Ox is on the bench his form has taken a dip but i hope he comes on as a winger in the second half to add a bit more pace , overall team looks good hope we dont concede in the first 10 mins …. COYG!!!
Giroud hatrick and Poldi brace for us to beat city 5-0?


I know it sounds strange but I think we can get something from this game. I can only hope.


This team is lacking pace, we need to keep the ball a lot better than we have in the last couple of months. Still anything can happen


John Terry Own Goal to Lose Match.
There are very few phrases of such beauty.

Henry! Chance! Goal!!
Henry! Chance! Goal!!

We look nervous at the back. We need to score first to get some confidence or it’s another “accident” as Wenger would say

Henry! Chance! Goal!!
Henry! Chance! Goal!!

We need brave men


11 mins in and Dean makes two bad calls already, fucking cunt. If I was in England id slap his head if I ever see him.


We are still in this at the half, would like to see a change with the Ox coming on after the half for either Arteta or Flamini. There is absolutely no pace in this team ATM.


I do fucking hate Mike Dean


And somebody please take a fucking shot!!!!


…and what do I know ? Sweet FA apparently. That’ll do pig.
