Over to the comments…!

  • devday

    Eastmond starting is a massive gamble, but I don’t think Arsene had any choice…

  • http://thegoonerway.blogspot.com/ wills

    Anyone know what’s happened to Nasri?!

  • devday

    Apparently he picked up an injury pre-game…

  • devday

    Big day for Eastmond, I think he’ll do well… fingers crossed.

  • devday

    News is that Nasri is out for 4-6 weeks with a hamstring injury…

  • devday

    Very good start from Bolton, they could have scored three times…

  • devday

    Cesc is looking very good, nearly scored.

  • manoo

    Eduardo doesdnt look very sharp. looks a bit slow and he shudve put it on a plate for fab

  • devday

    Definitely a penalty to Arsenal… replay shows that the keeper follows through with his legs… Traore looking terrible. Made 4 mistakes.

  • manoo

    yes fabregas!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • devday

    Have we ever really replaced David Seaman? I don’t think so…

  • devday

    1-0!!!!!!!! Cesc scores!!

  • manoo

    unlucky eastmond. hes not doin 2 badly, unlike traore

  • devday

    Great effort from Eastmond, anywhere else, it would have been 2 nil!

  • khai

    are they trying to kill fab. wth man seriously. scumbags.

  • devday

    Nothing nothing from Rosicky, shouldn’t even be a yellow. Stupid ref has lost control of this game.

  • devday

    @Khai, terrible play from Bolton!

  • Marc Callan

    Typical Bolton, trying to get physical since going 1nil down, think Arsenal will ride it out, love Rosicky tripped him back up, get back in their faces

  • devday

    So close from Cesc / Eduardo / Arshavin…

  • khai

    seriously. i do hope we beat the living shit out of them.

  • devday

    Defence shaky!

  • devday

    It’s all about the 3 points.

  • manoo

    how is it not 2-0

  • http://worldofarsenal Josiah

    great 1,2. I am gutted about nasri having to be out for so long, he has been on form lately. hopefully walcott and the likes will be back soon to fill that gap. i cant believe how bolton are trying to kill our players now, hoepfully we can just ride it out like somebody above said. Then beat them at home also. Come on arsenal

  • http://worldofarsenal Josiah

    Oh , will arsene decide to sign another player due to the fact nasri is out for 1 and a half months?

  • khai

    somehow i doubt he’s worried much abt the midfield. we do have cover for attacking midfield. just the striker ( which bendtner is coming back, his decision, i suppose depends on whether bendtner recovers on time ) and cover for the back (sol is our back-up). i wont be surprised if that’s all.

  • khai

    come on traore. he’s not having a good game. :(

  • devday

    Bolton started the second half very well. Need to get possession and put them on the back foot…

  • devday

    Clichy warming up….. yes!

  • khai

    bolton is playing well. very well. :(

  • Sam

    Good 2 see Clichy in action again.

  • Sam

    Wham, bam, thank u Fran (credits to Dev!).

  • khai

    GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!! : DDDD

  • khai

    we needed that goal. EAT THAT BOLTON!!

  • http://worldofarsenal Josiah

    @ sam, i was just about to say that.

  • Sam

    Vela, Vela, Vela!!!
    Show us what u’ve got.

  • khai

    vela up for dudu. i must say. eduardo’s showing signs of his best. glad to see that.

  • devday

    @Sam, Maybe that title should be re-used….!

    Very good performance from the Arsenal.

  • Sam

    @ Devday – as long as I get the credit this time around! LOL

  • Sam

    2-0. I’m so happy I have Arsenal in my life.

  • khai

    @Sam. u can say that again. : D

  • Sam

    @ Devday – here’s a better title for tomorrow:
    The Spanish Connection!

  • http://worldofarsenal Josiah

    yeah, use the spanish connection, just gotta beat them at home now.

  • Sam

    Dudu had a great game, he had 2 assists. No complaints please.

  • http://worldofarsenal Josiah

    haha, im not one to rip dudu, i like the guy.

  • Vazy

    Good Result! Traore had an awful game tho

  • Sam

    It’s Cameroon – Zambia now, and frankly Song isn’t playing well at all. Cameroon is already down by a goal.
    Frankly, I really don’t mind as this means Song is coming home (Emirates Stadium) soon.

  • Sam

    Clarification:
    There are two players called Song in Cameroon team. Our Song isn’t playing well, but the other Song plays in central defence is really aweful.

  • http://thegoonerway.blogspot.com/ wills

    @Sam, would be great to have him back soon! Especially for the run of Villa, Utd, Chelsea, Liverpool.

  • Sam

    @ Wills – Min 65, Cameroon still down and playing crap.
    Song is almost on his way back.

  • Sam

    Crap!!! Cameroon get a goal courtesy of Zambia ‘keeper. Bizzar & stupid.

  • Sam

    Song staying in Africa. 2 goals in 3 min for Cameroon.

  • Sam

    2-2 with 8 min remaining.
    I’m not sure if this means Song is staying or not.

  • devday

    Hey Sam, just got back in – 3-2 to Cameroon now?

  • Sam

    Totally undeserved. Cameroon win 3-2, I guess Song stays for now. My interest in African Cup continues.

  • http://thegoonerway.blogspot.com/ wills

    Cameroon not through yet, they play Tunisia in the final game.

    A win or draw sends them through, but a defeat sends them out.

    Only other out come is if they draw either 0-0 or 1-1, and Gabon lose to Zambia 3-2 or 4-3 respectively. That means Cameroon will go out on results against Gabon due goal difference, goals for and goals against all being the same!

    Complicated I know!

  • goonerman

    great result i cant believe cameroon went and won in the last few minutes! but to be fair we were expecting them to go through ! but they still aint through yet! so nasri and ramsey are out for 3 weeks each, perfect timing lol. good news is that denilson and theo could be back wednesday and bendtner in 10 days LETS HOPE THATS TRUE. talking of theo i bumped into him in comet he was probably buying a few plasma’s with his lady lol! anyway hopefully a repeat result at home on wednesday and top of the table! lets not get cocky for wednseday now we won away it never helps to assume we will win.

  • goonerman

    i know nasri and ramsey bing injured is bad news but as long as cesc and rosicky stay fit then we shouldnt miss them to much! i know eastmond dont a good job but id really like denilson back for wednesday!
