Capital Gold (www.capitalgold.com) is currently streaming the prematch show online.
stupid windows media player is acting up so I'm having to download it.
Live text seems to indicate that Arsenal has had a few chances.
15 min in, both side have had chances but still 0-0.
Everyone must be listening...
Early play has Arsenal dominating possesion, but Kiev stretching the defense on counters--as one might expect.
Still 0-0 at about 15 minutes
more chances and more missed chances
yellow card for Gilberto? Whaaa??
No Edu again. That's a bit disappointing.
sounds like arsenal is just crushing them on possession, but they're keeper keeps saving the opportunites
Uefa.com shows the Gunners leading in poss. by 62%-38%, so yes quite dominant.
No goals however.
40' Henry (Arsenal) misses the target.
40' Pires (Arsenal) misses the target.
The 30-year-old turns brilliantly in the midfield and races forward, but his shot skims just wide.
39' Arsenal pile forward yet again and only last-ditch defensive tackles deny Henry, Ljungberg and Touré.
DAMN! Why can't we score a goal in CL?!
Normally I'd say that Kiev can't keep this up for 90 minutes, but considering the recent Arsenal CL form, its not out of the question.
If it's 0-0 at halftime I'm gonna get worried
And there you have it, nil-nil at intermission.
6 Shots on goal 2
12 Attempts on goal 3
11 Fouls committed 5
5 Corners 0
63% Ball possession37%
12 goal attempts, 6 on target, 5 corners!, 63% possession and no goals.
fine dominance... definitely going to get a couple in the second half.. well done so far lads!!!!
We've had the run of the match and just no luck so far.
They've gotta keep at it.
How many times are they going to miss the target?
Bergkamp and Pires each had a chance!
Also the announcers said they think Edu is a bit unlucky to miss out on starting.
We're not supposed to post results of other matches? I can live with that, but what the hell is going on with Monaco-Deportivo, and we can't score one lousy goal!?!?
Hopefully they will break that.
I'm not listening but judging from uefa's site Arsenal are clearly in control. Can we assume that??
pires misses from point blank
