    We had Carrick, RVP and Rooney all missing at the same time. Had to play Welbeck, Young and Cleverley.

    Spurs don't know what an injury crisis is until then.

    Well surely it's about the quality of players out rather than the number? Plus thats now kaboul and possibly dawson added to the list. So if chriches and rose are out I'd say we are in defensive crisis territory.

    Anyway, disappointing result, but frustrating as we were still in with a chance at 1-0. After the red card (ridiculous dive btw) there was no coming back.

    Think we needed something from that game to keep top 4 hopes alive (slim as already were).

    Realistically, Arsenal fans should be pleased with that result. Keeps Spurs off our backs, plus some injuries and suspension for them to worry about before next weekend.

    Chelsea looking good for the title though sadly.

    I'm not moaning about an injury crisis. Just saying Tim wasn't really in a position to "rearrange" the team much once Kaboul got sent off.

    Worth an appeal that one. Probably won't get rescinded but we're very short for Arsenal now.

    So, Arsenal fans are already accepting their annual Plan B - finish above Spurs? Isn't that setting your sights a little low?

    Really well taken goal by Welbeck there.

    Amazing bottling by the ref there not sending off RVP.

    At least getting rid of Tim will be an easily made decision this summer. So clearly out of his depth. Do think we should try and keep him at the club, but if he wants to be the main man at this stage in his career, he can do it somewhere else.
    I don't think it's anything so easy, unless some proven big name manager makes a play for the job.

    Having said that, his post-match interview which was just on MotD bight be a sign of rot setting in. Bit too harsh on his players. And probably wrong.

    Love the response of that WBA player when RVP tumbled Rooney over into the back of him. Threw himself straight down, holding his knee and screaming.

    Van Gaal has put out a proper 'come and get me plea' (yes!) and apparently Prandelli is very interested as well.

    I don't think they'll have much trouble getting a big name in the summer.

    Plan B?! That's our Plan A. Anything else is a bonus.

    Not many mangers could pull them off but Sherwood was rocking that Spurs gilet today. Do they sell them in the shop?

    He bottled that amongst many other decisions before it.

    And then getting subbed off afterwards, and now being injured.

    You'll notice that he wasn't calling for a foul. It wasn't deliberate from Rooney (or van Persie), but holding your knee and screaming is hardly an overreaction to a knee injury.

    I thought one of the reasons lawro was binned and hanson nobody cried about hansen quitting was the perceived liverpool bias in punditry?

    If so, what the fuck are fowler and murphy doing on there?

    He's still faking it apparently - the match finished some 20 odd hours ago and he's still pretending to be injured. When your foot is planted in the ground and a rather large man falls on it, he should just bounce off!

    Brunt is a disgrace. A DISGRACE I TELL YOU.


    safety ;)

    St Totteringham's Day is the most important day in an Arsenals fan's calender.

    This. At the start of the season, we all thought we'd struggle to finish 4th. A great first 20 games made is think higher but then reality started to bite, and with key personnel missing from the team (Walcott, Ramsey, Wilshire) it's proving to be too much to keep up with the oil clubs.

    Can't really see us getting too many points out of the next few games, so hopefully spurs, Everton and utd also lose so we can stay in 4th regardless!

    Was this a joke / sarcasm? I assume so, the injury looked bad to me, I couldn't watch the slow mo of it twice. Also I got totally fucked with a similar injury. It hurts a lot.....

    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realise half of them are stupider than that

    There's no doubt (in my mind) that he was injured in that situation, but I think the reason they're on his back is that he play acted earlier on.

    I didn't know he was genuinely injured, as I saw the incident without seeing whatever happened next. It looked comical, but then some of the nastiest injuries are almost comical in origin. I just assumed he was Italian.

    Something popped in his knee?

    Did you not see the slow motion replay afterwards? It looked pretty painful.

    Ridiculous anyone having a go at him for that even if he was diving around a bit earlier.
