    Woohoo, I get to justify having bought NBC Gold PLP in December! I think I've only had to use it 1-2X since then. :(

    Oops, check that! I'm at a customer site that afternoon so I'll have to watch it on replay later that night... hopefully NBC Gold allows that.

    LCFC form is dreadful at the moment. We could come away from this with 4 or 5 goals.

    But now we have absolutely nothing to play for I have a horrible feeling we will win the last two away games.

    The difference between Arsenal's home form (47 points) and there away form (13 points) is inexplicable. On their home form they are second to City on goal differential, though City still has one home game to play. They have also scored 54 goals at home to City's 58. The next highest home goal total is Liverpool's 41. On their away form they are just above the drop zone.

    If Ozil does not play then I have to assume he has been transfer listed. Mirror says senior players turned on him.

    Awful foul by Mavropanos. But he’s young, still looking forward to his continued progress.

    Our road woes continue. Ridiculous.

    Our commitment to this away streak really is something.

    Red was harsh - really far from goal and a defender would probably have gotten over to cover.

    Remember earlier in the season when Arsenal's problems were all Alexis's fault?

    And now Alexis is gone and Arsenal are still crap Ozil is to blame

    If true, so be it. Problem is he just re-upped so who's gonna pay a massive transfer fee to take him off our hands?

    Yes an no. Alexis was a serious scapegoat for quite a few around here. In fact, didn't you wade into those waters youself?

    But AFAIK Ozil has not become a similar scapegoat. People are dissappointed with him big time, but I don't hear people blaming our overall results on him, the way they verged on doing with Sanchez.

    I think the way Ozil has turned out for us is sad. Maybe something miraculous will happen and next year he'll become an MVP, but I certainly ain't holding my breath.

    Anyway, I just watched today's game and here the thoughts I jotted down as I watched it...

    * Seriously good shift put in by 10 men for 80 mins!

    * Cech MOTM for us, for me.

    * AMN made a bit of a case for that too, but he faded near the end. A boy in a man's body!

    * And the difference between AMN's quality & Iwobi's is noticeable. Iwobi needs one more loan me thinks.

    * Ramsey really came into his own as the match wore on. I don't get why people want to get rid of him.

    * Mkhi shows promise, moments of great import, but he missed quite a few key passes, which could've led to goals. If he can clean that up, he could be great for us. Oh, and stop making stupid fouls which gift the opponent all 3 points..

    * PEA was very good, and very dangerous. Like his trajectory.

    And last but not least...

    * Traveling supporters were in fine positive voice tonight... given all we've been through of late, these guys are the real Gooners!

    * Classy of them to sing the Wenger song twice in the last 5 mins, even when we were losing, and Leicester fans to sing/clap along.
