The result against Partizan is a massive one for us after the shock loss at the weekend. It wasn’t one of the amazing games but it had its moments. At times it was very evenly fought out in the midfield but for major parts we had the game under control with the keep ball.
The good news has come that Fabregas has a little chance to feature in the match on Sunday, as Wenger told the club’s official website after the win against Partizan Belgrade. He has started to run and his progress will be analyzed before the green light is given for his selection.
Partizan: 1 Celo 33 p
Arsenal: 3 Arshavin 15, Chamakh 71, Squillaci 82
A job well done by Arsenal as they came up on top today with a fine win over Partizan Belgrade.

The next couple of games, starting from today, are very important for Arsenal as it will determine where our season will head. The way we present ourselves in these games will show us whether we are capable of putting aside our mistakes and grind out results in our favour. Read the rest of this entry »
Where to start on this one; from the draw against Sunderland or the massive win against the spurs in midweek, from the record profits that we have made or come straight to the embarrassing defeat against the baggies at home. We were sure to get the three points yesterday, we were this much sure that the whole team thought that the goals will be given to us gift wrapped by Albion themselves and we just have to show up and have a walk in the park.
Just a quick thought because I am tooooooooooooooooo angry and disappointed to write something.
We were poor for the more than an hour, our defence was in shambles, no proper marking, too much space was given, letting the Albion players come to them, not eliminating the threat early, giving the possession away many times, not clearing the ball early, lethargic display, our passing was poor, Almunia, though he made the penalty save, was ‘no comment’, just everything in the first hour was bad about Arsenal.
I had said before the more time we take to kill the match the more Albion will fancy their chances. That’s what happened, our play was pathetic and Albion took the initiative.
The only good thing is that we didn’t give up until the end and Nasri was brilliant in the final 20 minutes. Still we want all the players to perform like that from beginning and not when we are three goals down.
That’s three points dropped for sure and here I was thinking that by tonight we would be only a point behind Chelsea.
That’s all. When I get my anger to subside, I will write something good and positive about Arsenal from this match.
Have your say in the comments.
p.s. still can’t believe it that we have lost!
After the great news of pre-tax profits of £56million for the year ending May 2010, it’s time to get to business. Arsenal are to play the newly promoted West Brom today at home. West brom have responded well after being drubbed on the opening day by Chelsea and are currently at 10th position with 7 points. They will be confident today after their mid week victory over Man City in the Carling Cup.
