    Playing poor. Arsenal aren't at 100% but fulham will get tired chasing the ball, you'll score in the second half with a 1/2-0 win.

    We're leaving ourselves far too open at the back. I hope the players don't think this will be an easy ride.
    We need to score Fulham will have 10 behind the ball its not a easy nut to crack will less players attacking

    Giroud hits the post, but it's not enough. I'm surprised that we haven't scored yet. We need a goal before the break.

    Why the neg?

    Believe it or not. The last time I recall a Sagna cross that actually found his man was against Manchester United - when Henry scored that last minute header.

    Or was it Eboue!??!

    Sometimes your CB's can be your best attackers. Koscielny assist, Mertesacker goal.

    No worries. Just happens to be certain matches I remember vividly lol. Sagna's crossing still is terrible though.

    I think we were playing better when they had eleven men. Gaining the man-advantage created an expectation that we'd be the team controlling possession and initiating attacks, and the team seems to have taken that as a burden: they don't seem to know what to do with the ball and there's been little to no pressure on Fulham when they're in possession in their own half. They, on the other hand, have had their gameplan simplified and are using their capacity for directness to good effect (if only Berbatov could stay onside! :p:).

    I think Rosicky's been doing well, putting some good balls through; Ramsey hasn't had a great deal of success with this tackling and needs to be careful, but he's been a very important component in our midfield, breaking up Fulham moves before they get too much of a rhythm going (their direct counter-attacks have been good but we saw in the reverse fixture that they're capable of keeping the ball well too when they need to; letting them build up elaborate passing patterns early on after they went a man down would have been dangerous); Giroud's been doing well as well, using his physicality very well against Senderos and Hangelaand. I think Cazorla, on the other hand, has been pretty poor so far, as has Walcott with his final ball.
