In all fairness, we did deserve the 3-0 victory and yes we played a good
game. But in reality, we were pushed to win it. Definitely it's a different
level to the Wigan game. However, bearing in mind that Wigan has now lost to
Spurs shows that they are coming to a halt in their run of victories.

Arsenal are now second with that win and are not yet in touching distance
with Chelsea. However, a good result for Portsmouth is what Arsenal and Man
Utd will be looking for. NOt too far behind are Liverpool, looking to regain
from their lacksture seasons in the EPL, to what now has become their 7th or
about, victory for them. With results such as this, Wigan looks to have lost
the plot prior to Christmas. Mid table easily by the new year if this goes

Nevertheless, i'm here to preach about Arsenal and say what SPECTACULAR
GOALS we scored today. First, we were treated to a wonderful curled shot by
Cesc in the early minutes and then a simple finish from a pin point thro
pass from Pires and a WONDERFUL shot by v.Persie who made something out of

Despite all that, my eye was on 2 players in this game. I looked more at
Pires and Cygan. I was not too concerned about the others, but what I saw
pleased me. Pires looks to be playing better and better with every game. He
is hardly the shade of what he was in September and looks to be regaining
the form we saw in the past seasons, playing on the right. It pleases me to
know that he still has what it takes.

Cygan on the other hand, gave me nervy moments. However, you can tell that
he has been practising quite a bit during training on that left side. He is
doing better with his positioning and it is a LOT better compared to when
playing against Wigan. He is now in position more, and does well to know
when to get in and out of position. I must say that David Thompson who came
in as a sub was not given a good time by Cygan, tho he, next to Bellamy must
have been the biggest threat to the Arsenal goal.

Gilberto who i criticised early will still receive some form of criticism
from me as he still is a tad lost in the centre. However, he is lucky to
have Campbell help break up the play after forcing Blackburn to push forward
more quickly.

But the goal of the night is definitely vPs. He created something out of
nothing when everyone thought the ball was about to roll out, only for him
to push it forward, take an acute turn, run straight and curl the ball into
the far post with absolute power and accuracy. This is 7 in 7 and he looks
to go 8 in 8. Do take note he only played for 10 minutes against Blackburn
and it looked as if Arsenal were not gonna score anymore because Blackburn
was pushing for a goal, even with ex Gunner Dickov coming in as a sub.

However, as brilliant the goals are, we only get 3 points in the bag and
that counts. Now for the next game and another victory.
