No other sight is reporting it. From the little Twitter research I did, it seems like Euros treat that website like Ranters treat Bleacher Report.

re: Arsenal 2012/2013 Season Long Thread


Another great match for Gervinho. Liking what I'm seeing from him recently. Rosicky was fantastic too. Couple of great goals for him. Overall, I thought Ramsey had one of his worst matches of his recent stretch of solid play, but his pass to set up Rosicky's 2nd was great.

Sagna was solid defensively besides the one time Lukaku skinned him, but his crosses today were the worst I've ever seen.

Not really sure why Per decided he needed to get a red card in that situation. Long didn't have a great touch and it looked like Kos could've gotten there to at least put pressure on his shot. Plus, Long isn't exactly clinical. Oh well, at least we held on. Pretty good defending and two big misses works for me.

Did anyone else think Long's stamp on Monreal was intentional? It probably wasn't and I'm making too much out of it.

We're in 4th. Probably won't last long, but I think we can keep this streak going and finish up there. We're peaking at the right time. Besides TV5 having to replace Per, I think we need to keep rolling with this lineup.

It was probably intentional but I don't think he put much behind it.

The schedule is really in our favor. Any word on Bale's status?

They're saying two weeks.

Schedule is definitely favorable. And as I mentioned last week, we control our destiny now.

May be beyond germans but I just came across this.

ETA: Looks like they need to get about 11 points out of the remaining game to have a good chance. Definitely in the realm of possibility given the remainder of the schedule.

Six out of seven ain't bad.

Also, a caveat to my earlier statement about rolling with this lineup: Fabianski was shockingly poor today. Vintage Flappyanski. We're lucky it didn't cost us. Not sure if it's enough to be dropped, but it did serve as a reminder that we need to buy a top GK in the offseason.

Norwich
Everton
@Fulham
ManU
@QPR
Wigan
@Newcastle

6 out of 7 is certainly doable. It'd help if Newcastle was clear of the relegation zone by the last week (which should be the case). QPR is down and will have nothing to play for. Wigan will probably be down unless another Martinez Miracle happens.

Chelsea have the hardest road. They have Man U, Liverpool, Tottenham, and Everton left. They also have FA (semifinal game against Man City) and Europa while Arsenal get to focus entirely on the Top 4 spot.

Walcott and Wilshere will both be back within the next couple of matches (Walcott should be back for Norwich).

i was talking about going forward, but yes, we've been on a nice run. Really should've gotten at least a point vs. Spurs but whatever. That loss seems to have been a useful wake up point for our defense according to Per.

I thought Ramsey was worthless on the ball, but his energy was super useful after we went down to ten men.

Rosicky combined with Cazorla so well.

Thought up until the red card we were great. Lucky to escape with a win though.

This makes me so happy. I would JIMP if Chelsea finished behind Arsenal.
