How bad can a keeper possibly be?! I could have stopped that!

the difference between our match and Man Utd's against Crawley is that Anders Lindgaard is a better goalkeeper than Almunia. I rate him that lowly.

Szscesny, even Fabianski saves that. The usual suspects costing us again. Miquel looks promising though. Almunia...well, what can be said that hasn't already been said?

It is extremely telling that Wenger didn't make any subs. I'm sure he would have seen that he didn't need both Song and Denilson on at the same time, and that Chamakh and Bendtner weren't doing anything useful. He is definitely thinking about the Carling Cup final. The team he puts together for Stoke in midweek is going to be very similar, but with 1 or 2 more first team players in there.

I have to laugh. Yesterday Arsenal fans were laughing at united for­ struggling to beat Crawley Town....... Then only make a draw against Leyton Orient....

rafay4148d ago

Hate to agree but I agree...

no_more_heroes4148d ago

fair enough. Three main differences though:

1. Arsenal played away from home
2. Leyton Orient is higher up the league pyramid than Crawley
3. It's basically a London derby, albeit a VERY weak one

I won't make excuses though, we really should have won this.

Maradona4147d ago

yes no exuses. And it was really important for Arsenal to win this one. Now they must play another match. With EPL title race, Cl and FA cup the program is tough.

crazyturkey4148d ago

Wenger will probably use the same players in the replay with Fabregas and Nasri joining in the last 20 mins if they are not winning comfortably.
Tough game midweek and the final on sunday.

Arsenal would be the biggest idiots if they were to lose the final because of this!

kulka4148d ago

That's the beauty of the FA cup all the giant's can slip up
