Blackburn 1 - 1 Arsenal

Interesting to note that the two goals scored came 18 mins into the game and 18 mins from the end of regulation time. Again, Lehman was credited with an assist on the opposing teams goal. I think Arsenal played a better game than they did last weekend although one could also say I was able to focus more on this match seeing we took the lead early on. Either or we had no business sharing the points, I really hope we are not once again towing the line we did last season.

Many thanks to Chxta for this info, I was able to watch the match live as opposed to waiting till 11 to watch it (recorded) on FSC.

lehman is really getting old, it can happen to any goalkeeper but not twice!!
I still think we need a 'bigger' stronger players for this long hard season those blackburn players were just kicking and tackling young cesc n co same way sparta prague played physical

@Dami - I agree totally re Lehman. The annoying thing it is the same guy oh that saved that ball that Toure almost scored in the very same game! Meanwhile I worry as per the Sparta return match especially after the run in Cesc had with Repka. I understand that our players have 'old heads' (according to Arsene) but we need a larger physical presence as a team I mean I was looking at Denilson on the pitch and I am like 'this boy looks pre-pubescent! Skill will only get you so far especially in the CL.

Nice to read that Jens is 'injured'. Back to online footie. Nice if you have a good stream. Could get nicked. But more importantly, last season when I decided to kick Sky to the touch, Arsenal never seemed to win any game I watched online. So I am back on Sky, and hopefully we will end up winners at the end of the season.

@419Naija - I did a little jig when I learned his Achilles tendon injury was back. They say he should be out for 2 weeks ... I hope he will be out till he is ready to stop making costly mistakes
