We made the game against Fulham ALOT harder than needed. In the first half we should have been 3 or 4 nil up, so drawing 1-1 at half time was a piss take. Chamakh, Arshavin, Song and Rosicky all missed decent chances making the game very very tense near the end. All looked good after Nasri banged in the first after making room past 3 fulham defenders. There were then many many chances were the game should have been finished off, but Kamara finally broke our offside trap and scored due to our unconscious defender, after Squil18 head butted Koscielny. What followed was a totally different Arsenal and Fulham team. Arsenal started off brilliantly, but after Fulhams goal didn’t look nearly half as good, and Fulham was virtually the exact opposite. I could see Fulham scoring a set piece soon enough, so we needed to pull our fingers out and score a fucking goal. Thank you Nasri. After a classy dummy pass from RVP nasri skipped round 2 defenders, rounded the goalie, and buried the ball in the back of the net from the tightest angle possible. A goal fit to win any match, but we still had a lot of work to do to drag out the win. And with some class defending by Djourou, and a very deep arsenal midfield we managed to finish the game as 2-1 winners.

Ratings: Fabianski 7. Sagna 7, Squillaci 6.5, Koscielny 6, Clichy 7.5. Song 6, Wilshere 7, TR7 5.5, NASRI 9.5 (MAN OF MATCH), Arsh 6, Chamakh 6. Subs: Djourou 7.5 (Koscielny) , RVP 6 (TR7) , Walcott  5 (Wilshere) .

If it wasnt for Nasri’s class i really dont what to think what the outcome of this game would have been. Its frustrating we didnt finish the game at half time. We need to start finishing off some chances, and someone PLEASE TELL CHAMAKH AND ROSICKY TO SHOOT. Rosicky hasnt scored for ELEVEN MOTHS so its about bloody time he finishes one. I defiantly think its time Djourou starts over Koscielny now. Anyway we are top of the league, so enough with the moaning. Lets hope it stays like this…
