The moment that first Gervinho and then Robin van Persie very nearly hauled Arsenal back level at the Emirates last night, only to be denied by the goalkeeping heroics of one Christian Abbiati…

Great save, though you can almost hear his knees creaking from here!

    you can almost see his hand going up to celebrate. What a git !!! Thinks he’ll score anytime he wants. Wouldn’t swap him in a million years for Suarez.

    @KingKenneth: 99 out of 100 times that would’ve gone it, it was a reactionary save like the kind you’d see in hockey. i dont blame him for putting his hand up!

    after i saw all replays i think it was going to go over the bar…abbiati saved him embaressment more than anything

    @QueenKenneth… suarez is a bloody joke. Racing, buck-toothed, nasty, diving cunt. Rvp – 25 goals in PL only, Smellarez – 7 goals. Lol. I’d say that’s a pretty safe trade for anyone normal (that obviously does not include scousers)

    In fairness, Cristian Abbiati is still a fascist piece of shit
