City beat West Ham 5-0. 
And it was 11 v 11.

lol.  Certain Bilic's response was the usual rhetoric along of the lines of not being good enough.  5 nil ... oh my.

We take on Preston North End tomorrow .... I should keep it shut until it's over  Wink

Arsenal still asleep.  PNE up 1-0 after 7 minutes.  They have great tempo, and now belief ...

could easily be 4-0 right now.  All PNE.  Gabriel and Mustafi not even in the same book, let alone the same page.  Mistake by Mustafi should have gifted them with another goal, but great goal line defending by Monreal and yet another embarrassing moment of many today for Ospina. He looks so disappointed in himself, he's not even giving the Arsenal crowd a chance to chant their OSPINA.  Very quick distribution to stop that.  Gabriel took an elbow to the head near the end of the half and is bleeding.  He's fired up now.  2 things happen when he's in a mood.  Much improved work rate .... or sent off.  Iwobi playing through the middle and is completely ineffective.  

The halftime talk by Arsene better be a dynamic one ..... Arsenal lads are forgetting which crest is over their hearts today.

Guess the talk worked.  50 seconds for Ramsey to score the equalizer.

Hate to say, but, underserving victory for the Arse.  PNE definitely the better team on the day, and really deserved to win.  Gabriel did get retribution, and a yellow, for his first half elbow from Hugill .... by flying through the back of him. 

Welbeck made an 83rd minute appearance for Ox, who had nil effect today.  Funny how the gleam is taken off the player once he feels his worth is more than what he receives.  Welbs almost with a goal too.  Not bad for a surplus player Silly   Lovely back heel from Perez to set up Giroud for the winner .... bit of a deflection, all said.

Anyways.  

Thanks for tuning in for Gooner TV.  This concludes my broadcasting day.

Liverpool 0-0 after an hour versus a stubborn but largely untested Plymouth.
Team full of teenagers for LFC.
None of them really sure what to do.
Trying to weave there way around Plymouth, not taking anyone on, not shooting.
Sturridge comes on shoots with first touch, just wide.

Really poor effort from Liverpool. This is not a game that you want to draw. Long trips to play replays mid week in January, when you have semi-finals, and big league games, like a trip to Old Trafford to negotiate.

Klopp made the substitutions too late, imo. The young players dominated possession but missed the chance to stand out against a team who are three divisions below Liverpool, who showed zero interest in scoring themselves.

Arsenal were lucky. So where Chelsea, frankly. The score line flattered their performance. Some real poor defending that was bettered by poor finishing. This can be said for both teams. Perhaps the enormity of the matches shook the opponents, but my word, I hope both teams continue to defend like that for the next two months.

The John Terry red card was funny to me given his legendary status. The lad should have hung it up two seasons ago when they won the league. He was three steps behind a mid table League One club. Says something.

Arsenal's defense was equally suspect. When do you guys the the murder bag guy back?

Spurs looked pretty good with a mixed line up. They should have smashed Villa by more than two, but it was a decent victory. I was stunned to see Agbonhlahor lead the line for Villa. He's got to be in his 50s.

Didn't see the games, but Milwall beat Bournemouth, Wolves beat Stoke and Derby beat West Brom. All prem clubs all knocked out.

Waiting for Arsenal to start in a couple hours.  Chelsea v Brentford on now.  I'm on streams full time these days and this match is being broadcast on FS1. I have never watched a stream of this quality.  Are they now broadcasting the odd 1080p fixture?  All networks can't best HD in 720, but I swear, this isn't.  It's an amazingly beautiful picture.  

Oh, the blue c**** just scored in the 13th min.  1-0.  

Errrr 2-0 in the 20th min.  Should have pressed post reply sooner.   Silly

Good question.  He's been back in full training since early December.  He was to be played in early January around the same time as Bellerin, who came back Boxing Day.  The only real news is that Mertesacker has signed a one year extension to his current deal, just last week.  Pictures of two days ago show him training with Walcott, who is supposed to start today.  I don't know why Per wouldn't get a run out today ... nothing to suggest there is a concern with his rehab.  No release from Arsenal on their selections, yet.

Couple of shockers - Liverpool lost 2-1 to Wolverhampton.  Tottenham down 2-0 at the half to Wycombe.  Didn't see any of the Liverpool game, just the highlights at the half. A few too many pints last night prevented an early morning ...... black coffee is my best friend right now.

Mertesacker included in the 18.  Danny gets a start today, as well as Walcott and Perez.  Good to see Holding, Maitland-Niles and The Jeff get the nod too.  

Southampton played Liverpool Wednesday, winning 1-0 .... tails up for this one, but, also have that extra game.  

Tottenham trying to make the comeback, won a pen and equalized at 2-2 .... but find themselves down 3-2 with 5 minutes + stoppage to play

* 4-3 Tottenham - 2 goals in 4 mins of stoppage. Shame, Wycombe deserved more.

Arsenal looking much better with their changes vs Southampton's.   Danny with 2 and an assist inside 36 mins.  Arsenal bench looks the same, with the usual camera shot of Steve Bould chewing gum - and the iconic celebration of Wenger in the stands.  

3-0 Arsenal at the half

Hmmm.  64th minute substitution sees Alexis come on.  Such an unnecessary risk at 3-0 up.

Alexis with 2 assists, regardless.  Walcott with a hatty.  Huge impacts from both Danny and Theo - way to say welcome back.  

5-0 Arsenal at the whistle.

This concludes my broadcasting day.   Grin

It's like having a Springer Spaniel pup on a leash.  You gotta let him go once in a while.  I can picture the scene on the bench....Bould trying his best to ignore those big brown watery eyes and whimpering noises coming from Alexis on the bench.

A perfect result for the entire team.  Confidence building, and amping up the competitiveness for first team spots leading to THE week of the season.  We need to be decisive and injury free coming out of the Watford match, and then Chelsea.  A good week to be a fan.
Courage, my word, it didn't come, it doesn't matter.

It's all well and good to say this after the fact, escaping unscathed .... but, this is Arsenal - we're easily smoten Grin  Just glad it all turned out as it did.

Been away, still am, having seen Liverpools impressive demise.
No silverware this year then?

To be honest we haven't played a good game since late November, just got lucky with important wins over Everton and City.

Tuesday's game is very important for Liverpool, far more so than for Chelsea.
