I shall keep this brief but what a great fighting performance that sums up how far we have come in recent months. The only change to our eleven saw Arteta return in midfield with the Ox moving into the front three in place of Gervinho. To be fair to Newcastle, they did start very well and looked dangerous in the first fifteen minutes or so. They took the lead when Vermaelen sloppily gave the ball away, Gibbs was badly positioned and Ben Arfa had too much time and space, he took his chance expertly and cut inside, blasting past Szczesny at his near post.
From that moment on there was only one team that looked like winning, we stormed up the other end, Theo fed RVP, he slipped inside Williamson and cracked home the important equaliser. We dominated the rest of the first half and continued in this vein all second half, we huffed and puffed, and it looked like we might never get that little break in front of goal. In the end it came when many of us had almost given up all hope, Vermaelen steaming in at the back stick to bury the ball with his right foot, 2-1 and what a win.
It was very satisfying and fully deserved. Rosicky had been awesome, spinning this way and that, running the show in midfield, it was a really good performance from many others too, Theo was particularly sharp in my opinion. We had had the chances to win the game before Vermaelen's winner, RVP and Gervinho with the best of them. One cannot feel sorry for Newcastle too, their persistent time wasting was rather pathetic and Krul got his just deserts, pick that one out!
If you watched it again,how on earth did the ref lat Arteta take his corner kicks outside the corner area?
Thanks for nothing Howard 'biased' Webb
Gervinho is OFF FORM. MISSED a simple goal chance! Ox should have played on instead.
5 minutes of added time...how can that be justified? H Webb once again is proving everyone right: Because it is Newcastle he must ensure that Arsenal wins at all cost!!!
Premier League is getting worst every week due to the so called excellent referees and a totally blind FA which is more worried searching for a clown to take England nowhere!!!Shame on all of you!!!
You do realise he was completely biased towards Arsenal and 2 inches doesn't actually make a difference when taking corners? Especially as Arsenal didn't score any goals from corners. Webb even disallowed an Arsenal goal which wasn't shown because it happened during a replay.
Meaner say.. I just knew there is a new mother fucker call Krul who has no ambition to qualify for the top4 with his time wasting tactic. I think this son of the bitch Krul chased down the tunnel to confront RVP.
I hope he lamped him the prat,really bad behaviour for an experienced player You could see by the reaction of the newcastle players what they thought of it .Thank god Toite was off or RVP could have be choosing his hospital food from the menu.
van persie? what a p*ick, Krul was not cautioned or spoken too by the ref for time wasting, yes he took his time, who wouldn't against such an in-form arsnehole side? van persie is a petulant knob, only wish he had picked on Tiote instead of Krul, and then he would have been waking up in hospital, minus his teeth. I really do not like Spurs, but hope that they finish above this shower,and put *ankers like van persie and 99% of their fickle fans firmly in their place.
n'castle proved to be a very ordinary team without the guts to eve try to win..well well..i guess they where to afraid..and their socalled fans..simply put a disgrace all of em...Arsenal superb..n'castle very very poor,,but then again they didnt come to play..
Extremely bitter in defeat eh Newcastle boys and girls?
If RVP did say 'time waste now' after the winner, then he had every right to and it was rather amusing, shame Krul couldn't take it, if you are going to systematically time waste from the 1st hald then you have to live with a bit of mild banter.
Grow up and learn to lose with a bit of humility.
Hi Another Arsenal Blog,
Apologies for posting as a comment but I couldnt find a contact address.
I was wondering if you would like to exchange links to my Arsenal Quiz page?
The Awkward and Incredibly Stupid Moment when someone thinks Howard Webb is biased FOR Arsenal?!?
This is starting to remind me of an old George Carlin bit: Some people are stupid, some people are full of sh!t, and some people are fookin nuts. Tottenham fans are stupid, Man United fans are full of sh!t, and Newcastle fans are fookin nuts!
Stoke fans are all three!
