How much fun was that game last night? Not the first 35 minutes obviously but by the end of 120 minutes I couldn’t actually remember how I felt when Reading’s 4th goal had hit the back of the net.
Aaaarrrrrggggghhhh that was how I felt and it’s also how I feel now because my whole match report has disappeared into the ether :(
What to say quickly so that you can all carry on chatting? Bullet points it is then …………….
How can we concede 5 goals?
What an amazing come-back, although we do like to do that in this cup competition. Why isn’t that desire there for some PL games?
Theo Walcott – what an absolute star he was last night, I shall be very upset to see him in another shirt. He’s dangerous, so dangerous.
Olivier Giroud – looked comfortable last night as an Arsenal player. The difference between him and Chamakh is that he fills the space that he stands in whereas Chamakh always looks like he wants to be invisible.
Arshavin is going to need a month to recover from last night, he worked so hard, I can’t believe he played the whole 90 minutes, he must have been exhausted even before Miguel had to go off injured and from then he had no chance of being subbed.
Well done again to the away supporters who were magnificent.
Bringing on Giroud and Eisfeld were important substitutions.
Hahaha to McDermott for bringing on a sub in injury time only for time to be added on for us to score the equaliser.
Any number of players could have scored any number of goals once we got started but why wait until you’re four down to up your game?
It was fantastic, a real roller-coaster of a game and we’re in the next round phew. If anyone wants to write some player ratings we can add them on.
