Prior to the game the so called experts on Sky were talking about how Tevez is on fire and the Eastlands revolution. Arsenal were going to bottle it against a ‘top’ side. By the end of the game Andy Gray was saying that the 0-3 score line didn’t do justice to Citeh. Bollocks! Arsenal went up there and scored 3 despite Citeh’s best efforts to get one of our players sent off after the completely justified decision to red card one of their players. Arsenal also took liberties with the light blues for the last twenty minutes making them look like the away team. The millionaires ran out of gas while we passed the ball around them. Adebayor did little but jog around looking like a lanky rag doll and we weren’t bullied in midfield.
The multi million squad and financially manipulated ‘big team’ of Manchester City were beaten by an Arsenal team missing Vermaelen, Ramsey and Van Persie, and well beaten at that. Fabianski did his job between the sticks which is all that is wanted from Arsenal’s goalkeeper at the moment and had Cesc not telegraphed his penalty a 4 goal haul would have come back down the motorway with us. Saying that Cesc ran the show.

A big win putting us back in second place and the prospect of seeing a strong team take us to within touching distance of Wembley on Wednesday night.All in all a good result, a good performance and some light at the end of the tunnel.
