    I love it when AW took a swipe at JM when he commented that JM is only entertaining during press conferences/interviews but Chelsea is not as entertaining on the pitch

    Arsenal chairman PHW took another swipe at Chelsea after Arsenal's financial results are released.

    Limpeh got money!

    I am a fan ever since micheal thomas scored the goal against Liverpool that won us the tittle.

    For the current batch, one worry is that I can't see anyone taking over fabregas's place should he be absent. Then there is the african cup, hopefully Toure's position is well covered.

    The young(er) gunners are also doing not too badly.

    League Cup: Arsenal 2- Newcastle 0

    http://soccernet.espn.go.com/report?id=228956&cc=4716

    Too bad they dont telecast these matches, would be nice to see how the young ones play, interesting to try and spot which ones of them will be first team years down the road.

    Never had a good opinion of the Newpaper sports writers or even ST sports writers, they mostly write what is already written online and follow the herd.

    Only Rob Hughes is worth reading

    We beat Newcastle! Yes!!!

    Got this article online

    Arsene Wenger reinvents beautiful game

    With shenanigans at Chelsea brewing into something spectacular and Tottenham Hotspur not sure if they are selling up or dismissing their manager, lo and behold it is Arsenal who are setting the pace on the pitch within London’s elite. It’s all so deliciously confusing; wasn’t this supposed to be the season that allowed another team to penetrate the top four, some pundits suggested Spurs, at the expense of Arsenal? Weren’t they supposed to miss Thierry Henry a little more? Wasn’t Arsène Wenger going to walk off in a strop because his best pal at the club was asked to cash in his chips?

    Arsenal’s fabulous form, record profits and the assurances by Peter Hill-Wood, the chairman, that they will not allow Alisher Usmanov or any other oil billionaires, despots or likely lads to get a controlling stake in the club are in stark contrast to the Chelsea predicament. All of a sudden Chelsea – the richest of all, the club most likely to make football fans jealous with Roman Abramovich’s ability to “park his Russian tanks on our lawn and fire £50 notes at us” according to David Dein, the former Arsenal vice-chairman – don’t look classy or enviable.

    The talk this week has been of legacies, namely Chelsea’s inability to build one. Having a legacy is what packs out stadiums every match, even if it is Rosenborg on a Tuesday night or Coventry City on a Wednesday night. Johnny Come Latelys don’t cancel their dinner dates so easily, it would seem.

    José Mourinho’s three years in charge may have delivered five trophies but they didn’t create a legacy. If they had, the Johnnys would have been there for Rosenborg. But José was on his way to creating a legacy, because in spite of what Abramovich is alleged to think, Chelsea could have played ugly for ten years and if they had won the Champions League a couple of times, they would be in a very exclusive club. Mourinho hadn’t even enjoyed the challenge of rebuilding his team, surely a prerequisite for a legacy.

    The managers who are given time to reinvent, to rebuild and reexamine their goals are the ones who deliver in the end. It’s about the journey: the journey for that manager, for that team, but more than that it is the journey for the club and their fans.

    And what is sport if not a journey? In Arsène Wenger’s time at Arsenal the journey includes locking up the gates at Highbury and moving around the corner to a new ground. Would the club have had the confidence to grow in such manner if they were without such a visionary at the helm? Wenger’s unrivalled ability to cherry-pick the best kids from around the world and persuade them to develop their skills at the Emirates Stadium is the envy of his peers.

    When the accusation comes up again soon that too many foreign imports are ruining the chances of the England team, Arsenal need to be excused on account of them being so brilliant to watch, and while they might not have been made in England, they have been created here.

    Harry Redknapp used his newspaper column this week to praise the Arsenal way and the platitudes don’t stop there. Peter Beardsley, an Englishman to the core and until this summer a former player I thought had black and white all the way through, is a secret Gunner. “I just love the way Wenger’s teams play,” the former Newcastle United forward said. “We come down as a family, we all love them.”

    I had an image of the Beardsley family leaving the North East under the cover of darkness, jumping over the border (The Tyne), peeling off their black and white shirts in a service station outside of Doncaster and donning false beards and glasses. Beardsley is just one secret fan honest enough to admit his second love, and I imagine there might be others hiding around the Emirates in disguise on match-days. So my guilt was assuaged; I love my team (the same as Peter’s), but it’s OK to have a soft spot for another.

    It was Wenger who made the analogy about having the most beautiful wife at home: even if you think she’s gorgeous, you can appreciate the finer points of other women or, in my case, men.

    And if we are going to start talking about attraction, something needs to be said about Arsène Wenger. Ladies, you might just be missing something when it comes to Wenger. OK, so the anorak may take away something from the sartorial elegance and the face is one of character as opposed to cheeky-chappy good looks (Mourinho) but there is more to Wenger than a cashmere jumper and a good haircut.

    I once saw him in a question and answer session at an expensive charity dinner and he stole the show; quick-witted, generous, charming and a fabulous raconteur. The next day I was at Arsenal’s training ground to interview Henry. Wenger popped in to say hello and I complimented him on his performance the night before. “Oh,” he said bashfully, “did you enjoy it?”

    And that’s the attraction of the man – and his team. For his Arsenal, it’s about winning, of course, but it’s also about having a very good time, and this lends itself to an irresistible combination for those watching. Think about it, ladies – and gents – isn’t there something far more appealing in that than the brash, in-your-face appeal of others?

    We won again thanks to goal from Van Persie(cat)

    Hleb got injuried due to wtf tackle by Noble ... Arsenal didnt play with the same fluidity after Hleb was subsituted due to injury.

    I think Arsenal didnt play as well as we've seen them play over the past few weeks due to fact that WestHam played quite well and could've had an equalizer if not for the linesman.

    But thats football

    I think it was a great result last night, against last season's bogey team. WH were always going to be going in hard for the tackles and I think Arsenal stood up to it well. Tackle on Hleb was terrible, should've been a straight red.

    If a team is going to win the title, those are the sorts of games they have to scrap through and win. Sure it'll be back to the pretty stuff soon
