    Wah wah City had a game plan and executed it to perfection wah wah :cry:
    Pretty much tbfh..


    After all the current rubbish going on at Chelsea, they are still just 5 points behind us and we are 4 points of the lead and those *******s have a game in hand..

    We should have scored early, we have no one but ourselves to blame..

    Booing City, can't remember the last time a team has been that negative. Lack of ambition and I think Mancini would be happy with 4th by the looks of things.

    If Arsenal want to be the best they have to break down these tight defences.Teams deliberately approach games against Arsenal like this because they know it is what will get them a point at the very least.

    Parking the bus is a legitimate form of tactics but don't City have a shed load of strikers and attack playing options within their squad?...didn't they spend millions and millions beefing up their forward play, well, players in all positions...

    and you don't win league titles approaching games in this fashion. You have to gamble and take some risks in games. Mancini is simply too conservative a manager to do this, as he's shown pretty much throughout the season.

    Out of interest do any Arsenal fans think if we had opened up we would've stood a better chance of winning than losing?

    Who else thinks that Sagna exploded as a result of being hacked for two games in a row now? Bowyer, a handful of other B'ham thugs, there were a few niggly tackles today, including studs to the front of the ankle. Just occured to me that he must have been getting extremely frustrated with seemingly being targeted, coincidental or not, and that might've contributed to his overreaction.

    It won't my friend, we hit the post three times, we should have had a clear-cut penalty and Hart was on fire..

    Just watch MOTD tonight, everything but the goals, luck just wasn't on our side..

    A good peformance, Cesc, Nasri and van Persie all looked really sharp and creative. Its good to see van Persie proving to be a real threat once more. We were denied by a few centimetres of post, and some good goalkeeping/defending. Overall the team has looked excellent since Wenger has settled on this line-up.

    Excellent debut by Song's uncle Rigobert.

    Man City achieved what they set out to, fair enough, and they will likely achieve the same against Man Utd.

    City's mentality:

    - We attack Arsenal, we shall definitely lose
    - We defend like our lives are on the line, we might get a point if we are lucky


    You call them title contenders? :facepalm2:

    I believe teams park the bus against Arsenal because it usually works,I haven't seen anything that suggests otherwise.

    I think that indeed if you had opened up a bit, you would have had a good chance of scoring. I don't really trust our defence.

    The few times you did get forward, a few chances were made.

    But saying you would have had a better chance of winning than losing is essentially saying would you have stood a better chance of winning over our chance of winning.

    That we will never know, but judging by the first few minutes of football, if you had been more open we would have scored a number of goals.

    but again all hypothetical, you might have ripped us to shreds, we'll never know.

    Great logic then :congrats:


    Can you explain why Arsenal have won the most games in the PL so far this season? Why didn't all those teams just park the bus?

    fyi, every single team we have played against in the last 3 seasons at least, excluding Barca and maybe one or two others, have parked the bus..
