The season did not start well for Arsenal at all at Newcastle on Saturday. It is going to be a long season fro Arsenal in my opinion. As ever in games with us and Newcastle there was a lot of controversy. It is no surprise that Joey Barton was at the centre of it again just like he was last season when Diaby got sent off.
This time round it was Alex Song, who in my opinion was very luck not to see red when he stamped on Joey Barton. It is likely that the FA are going to take action on that silly stamp by Song on Barton which means Song could miss a few games for us and Gervinho who also saw red in that game.
