Very few will get three goals passed us this season with how we've been defensively, and although yes some will no doubt wonder why Arsenal is Delph's next chance and wasn't a more experienced player given it's the standard 70 odd minute substitution, but all in all everyone has days like these.

This was just one of them, it wasn't meant to be, so we pull our socks up and move forward.

There's been a enough improvement of late in our performances even for a serial moaner like me - I don't today changing that, you just have to accept sometimes **** happens in football. Afterall, it's a funny old game.

worthy winners, picked apart by Fabregas, what a shame he was fit as we could have got a draw or sneaked a win if not for him! PIck ourselves up for Liverpool at home now, a game that we can win and go 8 points clear of them.

My real dissapointment was how bad we were when we won the ball back today, struggling to string 3 passes together at times...In all fairness we were given a lesson in football at times today as Arsenal are capable of doing, and we were undone in the end by a world class player that has done it to bigger & better teams then us before...tuesday was always & still is the big match for the 4th spot, so lets hope we can shake off todats loss & be ready for that...Up the villa!!!
