Plan B comes into effect

The win against Fulham was the perfect cast study in Arsenal's development over the last couple of years, from a slightly predictable side into a multi-dimensional side that can score more than one type of goal. Adebayor's headers were awesome, the crossing from Clichy and Hleb to supply the ammunition weren't half bad either. Rosicky was bright and has been one of our best players in recent weeks, while the defense has look solid enough without Kolo, so far.

The only bad news this week was the Ivory Coast's victory in the ACN, I was selfishly hoping that they would go out early on, unfortunately they must be favourites to win with a very very strong squad indeed.

The squad for tonight's game versus Spurs is rather stronger than I would have predicted, Fabregas, Gallas, Hleb, Flamini and Adebayor all feature. If we can keep it tight and not concede in the first half, the jitters may set in, and then I would fancy an Arsenal win, however if we concede early then I think we will find it tought to recover.

ps for anyone that hasn't found Arseblogger's hilarious pisstake of ANR, have a look at this

Looks like you called the Spurs game correctly. 1-0 down after a few minutes was hardly the best start...

Still, I am less disappointed by this than losing to Chelsea in the final last year. Plus I will be hoping Spurs lose 100-0 in this year's final and that Defoe breaks all four limbs...

I agree with Wenger 'naive' was correct,

spurs were happy to sit back and nail us on the counter,

we should have started a bit more cagily with more men behind the ball and kept it tight early doors,

good learning for the kids I guess,

we lack bite without flamini and Toure in the side, and spurs wanted it more, they were pressing us and closing us down very effectively,

very dissappointing, not gutting, just a let down
