WHAT CAN YOU SAY ? GREAT START
JASON
Ok so in terms of football we were outplayed but hey, at the end of the day it's goals that count. Chelsea don't complain if they play badly and win so I'll not complain if we get outplayed by Arsenal in our first game with a new manager just 2 weeks after he started the job and still get a result like this. Imagine what O'Neill will do given time!!! Exciting times ahead!!

Just bought 2 tickets for the Reading game on the strength of this result. Got disallusioned these last 2 years. What a great start.

if we show that commitment and passion week in week out we will beat alot of teams we were well organised and held our own against the best what more can i say. ridgewell was brilliant!!!!
samtozer
Yes we came under intense pressure at times, and the Arsenal missed a few chances, but we fully deserved that point. A fighting, passionate performance from each and every one of the lads. Felt a lot better traveling back to Brum than we ever did last April.

Most teams in the league will take a draw against Arsenal as a good result....say no more....UTV!
