Oh dear oh dear. Consider our next two games and there might be a call for the successful reserve team to all be called up for first team duty!! I just wonder if Doug fancies giving DO'L the boot before the games............................

:( Can't believe the possession figure? Surely the least you would expect would be for the players to not give the Arsenal lads time to settle? We were never going to win this, but there was no need for that thrashing. Worrying that Barry had to go off as well.

Oh dearie me, I one of those shots on target was the pass back to Lehmann after Arsenal put the ball out for Eboue's injury...

Yet again the game stats make for very depressing reading. I dont think that realistically too many of us expected anything out of the game points wise, but this sadly ended up being yet another humiliating spanking. I have to admit to getting just a teeny bit worried about the two upcoming derbies, games I had hoped we'd be going into fairly pressure free, compared to the very worrying situations of our nearest and dearest.

16 attempts on target I am surprised it was only 5... they really should be more clinical and learn to kill teams off. Our confidence is now officially "shot to bits" locate the exit and leave!

afraid to say chaps you were dreadfull. i think the problem your team has, is that it has not had the investment that it should have done. DOL is an excellent manager he just needs somemore money!!

What a disastrous result but I sort of expected it. The Gunners are on fire and what we must do now is concentrate on winning these next two vital games. If we don't then, DO'L has no excuse!

Would love to see the proof that DOL is an excellent manager. He rode on the crest of the wave to get Leeds to 4th following George Grahams foundation work. Since that high, he has season-on-season seen his teams finish lower and lower. This trend continues and we will be championship bound. At least Doug will celebrate because he'll think it is the same as the champions league.
