West Bromwich Albion Message Board
Apparently the glory boys that actually attend games (none of you then!), were booing the new manager after the LOSS to NEWCASTLE (Howay the geordies!).
Great 'support' GLORY boys!!!

Everton were the most difficult side I have seen Arsenal play so far this season, great passing game and they did indeed look as though they were the home side for the majority of the first half,Arsenal came good at the end of the half and finished with more shots on target than the visitors. I though our defence held steady against a real bashing.
Second half Arsenal were the better side for me, especially after the triple substitution. A draw was about right. Everton certainly didn't 'deserve' the win but i'll grant they played well enough for the point. Still gutted the lads didn't manage to see the game out after a wonderfully worked Ozil goal.
No shame in ManU and Chelsea losing to Everton!?!?! After the tens of millions they have spent building their squads!?!?!

Absolutely bad taste using the death of Mandela as a tool for yet more diatribe.
Still...one has come to expect this from Rikki.
Three games in 7 days, Everton (playing well), Napoli (crucial CL game away!) and Man City await the lads this week. I think it will be a tall order to win all three and am resigned to losing to City at least, mainly because of their fantastic home form and the fact that the fixture comes so close to having travelled half way around the world to play Napoli. I hope the lads get good results elsewhere and that, if they do not, then they are at least able to pick themselves up to fight in the next game. Both Napoli and Everton are tough cookies.

It could be argued that Arsenal have already played tough games without key players, or at least players that were seen as 'key' before others stepped up to the plate (think Ramsey over Wilshere, or Flamini over Arteta, or Mertesaker over Vermalean).
Nowt wrong with Bendtner or Adebayor apart from their own willingness to apply themselves fully.
Adebayor is capable or ripping teams to shreds and Bendtner played one hell of a part when Arsenal beat Barca and , he left the pitch to a standing ovation last night.
Those two are their own worst enemies IMO.
True Hull are not supposedly too tough an opponent, yet they beat Lpool easily and Arsenal have been better on the road than at home in recent times (due to the w**ker home 'supporters' who slate their own and then wonder why the team is underperforming! The mind boggles).

........alternatively.....I could ask you................. incredibly well disguised one.......
......how many points behind Arsenal are ManU....?
Incredible goals from the Arsenal target tonight. I don't think I have ever seen four goals of such quality, in one game, from one player.
Can you imagine Ozil supplying the ammo?
Sign him up Arsene!

Arsene made 5 changes to the starting line up tonight against Hull (both full backs, two in midfield and Bendtner on) and in all honesty, that is the best I've seen the team play all season.

Update Sfer; you lot also know Arsenal are 7 points clear at the very top of the Prem this morning.

No more than AW deserves indeed. On a personal note,i'm just happy that my supposed ignorance, proven by my UNWAVERING faith in AW over the years, is now being rightfully shown for what it truly was all along, that being,not ignorance, or blindness, but rather, greater insight and, dare I say, higher intelligence on my part.
Tough game against a tough side, proven by the damage they have inflicted upon LESSER teams than OUR lot, you know, both dirty Mancunian clubs for example. Arsenal have again risen to the occasion and got the result needed, in style.
7 points clear at the TOP today Gooner men.
Ozil supplying goal opportunities for FUN, are you not most grateful to Spurs for enabling the better side of north London to purchase the BEST no. 10 in the world!?!? Lord it must GRATE somewhat huh!
Keep fighting Gooners.....all the way to May!!!
Much GLORIOUS love.

I saw Pat play on TV, I believe he played in the run of three FA cup finals,way before Adams time. Pat would have played alongside O'Leary and Willie Young (don't get excited Rikki, that's the name of an ex player) and Jennings and Brady amongst others.
- FABONGRASSS FABONGRASSS Nov 29, 2013 09:40 Flag
Mr Arsenal through and through, Pat should have been given a greater send off when he left the club.
Lets hope he can win this battle and enjoy his retirement.
A true Arsenal legend if ever there was one.

One of those strange games where the early goal seemed to end the game in some players heads. Wenger obviously had a few words at half time as it was a better performance after the break. Rosicky was poor as was Ozil in the main. Mesut still came up with the goods when he set Wilshere up for the second. I don't think we'll really see the best of Ozil until the latter part of the season at the earliest, probably not until next season.
All in all the lads got the result needed.
