    It's the ultimate insult to the oppossing team, saying that we're so dominant we can bring on our jogging man.

    Another good away result for us even if it is against a struggling team, derbies are never simple. Sounds like Djourou played badly but he must be tiring considering the number of games he's played recently, could do with some resting. Cant wait to see RvP highlights, looks as if he's entering the purple patch which is almost inevitably followed by his mandatory injury...just need some more goals out of him before he does go back to his second home on the injury bench.

    Robin's technique on penalties is unmatchable in this squad, so many times he will leave the goalkeeper without hope and that shows in the confidence with how he takes them.

    What did Denilson do wrong?

    Got skinned once by some bulldozer. Also kept it simple and played a superb pass with his left foot to Theo.......a forward pass which he can't do apparently.

    3 - Arsenal have now kept three successive clean sheets in the Premier League for the first time since February 2009. Tight.

    Loved Nasri's corner and free kicks....time to stop letting Cesc take any dead ball situations.

    RVP looked the part.....its not just his touch (beautiful for Song's touch) but his off ball movement. Can only imagine how frustrating it is to play against him.

    Good, solid game with the proper work etiquette/level needed for a team like West Ham.

    Everyone is quite obsessed about abusing denilson for any reason actually. He is just the perfect scapegoat for every occasion. I think he hasn't performed as badly, it's just that he is a player with a limited skillset and you know what you are going to get from him, anyone think alex 'revelation' song can help him improve his positional play in attack ?

    To be fair, the Denilson bashing today wasn't deserved at all. I can only think of the one time he lost a battle, and judging by the size of that West Ham player, only Song would stand a chance. He kept the ball moving and helped us retain possession as the game came to an end.

    It wasn't really a battle, Nouble just ran through him like he wasn't there.

    One player during the game ran past Cesc like he wasn't there....didn't hear any complaints then....same thing happened to RVP and Nasri atleast once etc.

    He's not a great player...we get that but sometimes the criticism's are uncalled for like in this case.

    BTW Congrats on promotion Bruin ;)

    To elaborate, I mean this team - Sczeney, Sagna, Djourou, Koscielny (hopefully new CB), Clichy, Nasri, Walcott, Song, Jack, Cesc, Robin.

    Apparently Cesc brought up the fact that we threw a 2-0 lead there last season, in his half-time talk.

    Good, solid 3 points. Delighted with that result. Puts pressure on United tomorrow and keeps us in the position to overtake City. :D

    West Ham were generally woeful, but we still had to get the job done. RVP, Nasri, Cesc, Theo, Wilshere and Clichy too, were excellent.

    I just hope Arsène takes the momentum of this win into the Leeds game and doesn't change things too much.

    Sums it up for me.
    Recorded the game & thought it felt like a training run - we looked very good at times but overall only did what we needed to to beat a relegation team.
    Noticed that at half time 78% of our attacks were through the middle, and IMO we are VERY reliant upon the Jack-Song-Cesc midfield for our game to click.

    First really convincing win in how long? I know Brum was 3-0 too, but it just didn't have the same air of dominance about it as this did.

    Yes, I know West Ham are diabolical, but this is all about building confidence and ticking boxes.

    RvP's grinding into form and looking more mobile with every game. He's a match winner that we have back now. Cesc is yet to hit the heights this season, but will. There's a lot to look forward too.

    There usually is - but too often it fails to be delivered for whatever reason/s.

    Wonderful game to watch though, well unless you support West Ham ofcourse.

    Shame we couldnt have bettered out goal difference, but 3 points is what counts, and RVP scored in open play. He needs to keep that fitness up and he'l bang 'em in, we know he can do 1 of the 2, just needs to fullfill that potential!! Other good news is that Sagna's ban ends (domestically, but sadly not for the CL!!! :cry:) now, so we're better at the back.
