Blackburn vs. Arsenal preview

Arsenal will face Blackburn at Ewood Park in FA Cup 5th round replay.

Wenger will have headache deciding what player to play in this game as most of the players I think were frustrated with Gunner's recent lost to Chelsea in Carling Cup final.

With our crucial player Adebayor and Toure suspended in this game Blackburn will pose some danger for Arsenal as their key player has returned and Arsenal had to recover from their lost to Chelsea.

I hope Arsenal will not lost another game and a FA Cup tonight.

I'm sorry that I couldn't elaborate more on this game as I'm very busy for my work but I will provide match report for this game.

    Arsenal lost 1-2 to Chelsea

    Arsenal lost 1-2 to much experienced team,Chelsea.

    However,it was Gunners who scored the first goal of the game.Walcott started the attack by his pass to Diaby,and Diaby passed the ball to Walcott and Walcott beat Petr Chech for first goal for Arsenal.

    Arsenal took control of the game till the 20th minute when Ballacks kicks the ball to Drogba and Almunia could do nothing since it is one-to-one attack and therefore Chelsea equalized.

    Arsenal and Chelsea exchanged strikes but no goals were produced.The game went 0-0 for first-half.

    In second-half Arsenal controlled the first 20 minutes but at 55th minute John Terry had a sickening injury when he was knocked unconscious by Diaby.

    And at 72th minute Lampard gave a great shot but fortunately it went to cross bar.

    And the winning goals comes for The Blues when Arjen Robben crossed the ball and Drogba header gaves Almunia no chance to save the game.

    Actually it doesn't matter if Gunners lost the game,but the fighting incident at extra minute that disappoints me as Arsenal fans.

    Mikel and Kolo Toure received a red card each,Adebayor received the same treatment with them.However,Kolo Toure had apologised for his action.

      Can Arsenal win Carling Cup Title

      Arsenal will face Chelsea for Carling Cup Final in Cardiff Stadium.

      The win in this game will bring Arsenal to its first silverware fro his season.

      But it seems Wenger is doing fair to his kids by playing them in such a big game(or final round game) although he know Arsenal will be playing against a team who are more experience and power than the youngsters.

      But the fact is our youngsters fought the game into the final.Without them Arsenal cannot enter the final.And we had seen that they had beaten many big teams including Tottenham,Liverpool and Everton on the way to Final.All of these team is tough but we beat them.

      Chelsea on the other hand face much easier team,they face Wycombe ,Newcastle United and Aston Villa.Not to say that Chelsea face easy team,but Arsenal's road to final is tougher than Chelsea's.

      So our kids can beat Liverpool 6-3,why not Chelsea.Chelsea lost 2-0 to Liverpool last month at same place as Liverpool face Chelsea.

        Arsenal lost disadvantagely against PSV



        Gunners lost 1-0 to PSV Eindhoven at Philips Stadion.

        This type of lost give disadvantage to Gunners as they didn't score an away goal,which means Arsenal need to score at least 3 goals to secure the win.2 goals may be enough but we didn't know if suddenly PSV scored a goal then Arsenal will lost on away goal.

        Talking about the game Arsenal had took control of the game but PSV seems have a sharper attack when Mendez scored the winning goal for first 90 minutes in the second-round.

        Arsenal had their first attack as early as 12th minute when
        Rosicky exchanged passes with Henry and darted into the area but it was saved by Gomes and the defender took the clear.

        Gunners have a lost of chances but somehow they just cannot convert it into a goal,PSV defended very well and gave some counter-attackat Arsenal's side.

        But I want to comment about Arsenal's game after PSV had scored,it seems either Arsenal is playing more carelessly r PSV played better game after that.Arsenal made a lot of silly mistakes and I think that's not good especially the team are conceded a goal.But I think Arsenal can make it to quarter-final.,just I think Arsenal need to improve their game.

        Lille will have something to complain about their lost to Manchester United as Giggs take the free-kick before referee allowed it.However,the goal is consider a goal and Manhcester United have a 1-0 lead.Bayern Munich gain a better lost when they lost 3-2 to Real Madrid,which means Bayern Munich only need a 1-0 or a 2-1 win over Real Madrid in order to qualify.

              Arsenal vs. Blackburn Rovers Review

              Arsenal will play Blackburn Rovers in FA Cup 5th Round at Emirates Stadium.

              Blackburn will try to make their revenge following a embarrassing 6-2 defeat at Emirates and 3-0 defeat at Ewood Park.

              Arsenal's win against Bolton Wanderers had shocked us as well,as Arsenal is said to be "must lost in Reebok Stadium".Good play from Gunners especially from Adebayor and Rosicky.

              The return of William Gallas will sure help us with our packed schedule,facing PSV Eindhoven for next three days,will lessen the burden of the other defenders.His experience helps us as well.

              Oh yeah,recently England's Queen Elizabeth had invited Arsenal squad for a tea at Buckingham Palace.The 80-year-old monarch was due to attend the official opening of Emirates Stadium in October but she was forced to pull out after suffering a back injury.

              Wenger said: "It is a big honour. It was a frustration that she could not come and see us that day. I always like to go to the end of things and to see that happening is great. It is a fantastic mark of respect for Arsenal. It is a good experience for the group and for the Club."

              It's a big honour to Arsenal to become the first football club to be invited a reception at the royal residence.

                Arsenal finally beat Bolton at Reebok Stadium

                Arsenal beat Bolton 3-1 at Reebok Stadium in FA Cup 4th round replay.

                Arsenal shatter the bogey place as early as 13th minute when Adebayor scored the opener for us.

                After this Gunners kept dominating the game.One such foray in the 25th minute saw Rosicky curl a low cross to the far post. It found Baptista rushing in but the Brazilian made a horrible hash of his effort.

                In second-half Arsenal even nearly double or triple the advantage when Arsenal rewarded two penalties,one at 55th minute and another one at 100th minute.

                But the bad cames to us when Bolton extended the play to 120 minutes with their equalizer.Arsenal try to end the game in 90 minutes but it was impossible.

                Bolton bossed the opening stages of extra-time. In the 97th minute, Gilberto flicked Diouf’s cross against his own post then just before the break then Gary Speed’s header was saved by Almunia on the line.

                But the winning goal comes when Ljungberg scored his first goal in 2007 for Arsenal.It seems Bolton has given up with their powerless game.Gunners punished them with Adebayor's second goal or Arsenal's 3rd goal against Bolton

                  Bolton vs. Arsenal preview

                  Bolton will host Arsenal in FA Cup 4th round replay.


                  Reebok Stadium is always Gunners bogey place.Arsenal lost almost all game against Bolton there.Last meeting,Arsenal were thrashed 3-1 by Bolton.

                  Henry will be not playing in this match therefore I think Arsenal is ready to lose this match(of course I want them to play their best).I accepted the loss if Gunners put their best into the game.

                  For your information,Arsenal is still involved in major four competition for now,Premiership is must play game,FA Cup,Carling Cup and UEFA Champions League.So I think it's okay to Arsenal to drop a championship.

                    Match report:Arsenal 2-1 Wigan

                    Arsenal came back from behind to beat Wigan 2-1 at home.

                    At beginning of first-half,Arsenal had control of the game.Henry missed a lot of chances to score in that game.

                    The visitor however shocked us when Landzaat scored from a long-shot and gave Wigan a 1-0 lead over Gunners.

                    Arsenal however,did not give up.They strengthened their attacking but they were no goals after this.It's half-time break.

                    At second-half,Wigan almost extended their lead by 2 goals but Heskey did not convert the chance to a goal.

                    After this,Wenger made some adjustment.Adebayor and Aliadiere is added to strengthen their attacking.

                    However,Gunners only made the equalizer at 81st minute when Henry sent Flamini through on the right and his low cut back was turned into his own net by Hall with Henry in close attendance.

                    Rosicky scored the winning goal 4 minutes later.That goal is his first ever goal in Premiership since he came to Arsenal last season.

                    Arsenal secured another 3 points to pressure Liverpool and keep distance with Bolton.

                    Here's the last weekend Premiership results





                    Manchester United maintain their lead over second-placed Chelsea with 2-0 win over Charlton.Chelsea were also maintained their pressure over The Devils with 3-0 win over Middlesbrough.Newcastle sprang a setback with their 2-1 win over Red Giants,Liverpool.Bolton maintained their pressure on Arsenal with 2-1 win over Fulham.

                      Arsenal vs. Wigan preview


                      Gunners will face Wigan for second time in this Premiership season at home.

                      Talking about our last match with Wigan at JJB Stadium,I must say we are very lucky gain victory from that match.Wigan controlled the match in 1st-half but Arsenal had more control in second half and Adebayor lightened our day with his late 88th minute score against Wigan.

                      Last week,I think the referee is a little bit too harsh to Arsenal.I think if some team is already get a penalty punish,its player shouldn't be get a red card.If the red card is resulted by a second yellow card ,I will accept but it doesn't.

                      I didn't know who will replace Senderos in this game as Gallas is still recovering from injury.

                      Arsenal must buck-up.Bolton is already only one point behind us(of course that's excluding Arsenal's one game in hand)and we still has hope to get the second place provided Gunners win almost all the remaining Premiership match.

                      This is this week's Premiership fixture;

                      Chelsea will have easy match against Middlesbrough because it is played at Stamford Bridge.It goes same to Manchester United when they face Premiership bottom Charlton.

                      Bolton will face Fulham in Reebok Stadium.

                        Arsenal came back from defeat to avoid lost

                        Late equalizer by Henry enables Gunners to steal one point in Riverside.

                        Although we dislike a draw,we like to win,but football game is sometimes unfavorable to us.

                        Talking about the game,like normal,Middlesbrough dominated the game for first 15 minutes and then Gunners started taking control.Arsenal missed a lot of chances.It went same to Middlesbrough too.

                        A very dull first-half.

                        At second-half,thing became more lively.Arsenal controlled the game nicely but things change when Middlesbrough were awarded a penalty shot and Aiyegbeni beats Lehmann easily to give Middlesbrough 1-0 lead at home.

                        Arsenal pushed them back even more.Attacks come in waves to Middlesbrough and Arsenal made it through when Adebayor headed the ball and Henry easily beats the goalkeeper for an equalizer.

                        There are more attacks by Arsenal,some counter-attack by Middlesbrough but there was no goal until the final whistle.

                        Liverpool suffered the same fate with Gunners,drew 0-0 with Everton at Anfield.Bolton beat Watford 1-0 and Chelsea beat Charlton 1-0.
