Hell to the yes. Where do you think Messi comes from?

Goddammit, how many times will you make me fail in public, foul ape scientist?

Feeling a bit Wengerish right now, Errant?

I don't see your point.

Man, we've fallen so far that even a Wenger "I didn't see it" joke is met blankly. Oh well.

Good win barely deserved. We probably ought to have drawn, but I'll take it.

Some promising moves forward. Although our team appears cross-averse, Arteta and Mertesacker looked good.

I feel like there are a ton of goals in this team when we finally click though. I'm happy to scrape by in some games like this and unleash the flood when we really need them. Plus, luck going OUR way for once? Can't even remember the last time that happened.

Arshavin's passing from the middle looked nice, and I'm liking Walcott moving from side to side this season (him and Gervinho switching sides throughout the game has got to piss off defenders). I'm also hoping some Arsenal bloggers will notice that when our heading specialist Chamack actually gets service, suddenly he looks dangerous, so they stop talking about how terrible he is.

I like the idea of Walcott moving from side to side in theory, but not so much if he can't actually do anything while he's on the right side.

That is a completely fair point. Oxlade-Chamberlain already looks like he might be a more effective Walcott in a year or so. I like Walcott on the end of a through-ball but don't expect much when he's facing up a player for a one-on-one.
