You have a good team and you played well today. I wish you all the best for the rest of the season. But I do have a big complaint over your Carew's challenge on Hleb. It absolutely should of been a red card IMO. You watch that and you can see that Carew had no intention on playing the ball. Hleb had 2 steps on him and he just slide to try to take Hlebs legs out from under him. From what Ive heard Hleb has a gash in his ankle from Carew boots. It was a extremely classless challenge that really took away from a good game that Carew was having.

Thanks guys - means alot coming from the leaders of the best league in the world!! Haven't seen the challenge from Carew - will have to watch the highlights tonight. He isn't a dirty player, but if it is deliberate it is inexcusable. Good luck for the rest of the season.

We could all moan about the ref though. Carews challenge was a booking, not a red. First offence it was. I was outraged with your players surrounding the ref for every decision. Disgraceful that is. And Sagna got away with 5 sinnical fouls and wasn't even booked. We could all say things! As for the game, we deserved a point. You hardy had an attempt in 2nd half. I would say good luck for rest of season but the way your players surrounded the ref today i can't im afraid. And by the way, wishawbhoy- get lost.

Good performance by your lads in the 2nd half, but I thought Arsenal did just about enough to take 3 pts. Awesome 1st half performance. randy stand - I agree about the ref surrounding. It was out of line and unnecessary, but its not normally done by the Arsenal players. Lets hope it was a one off. I am *****ed off about the Carew foul though, he had no intention to play the ball, and he took out Hleb from the game, who was outstanding till then.

Not sure where those match stats came from but the Opta Stats on the Setanta site gives something a little different. Possession 55.8% in favour of Arsenal for example. But good pressure play in the 2nd half though.

I thought we deserved a draw, but I trust a win next week against pompey will be more achievable. Keep the faith
