    Fabregas is no leader. Was he even on the fucking pitch last night? Oh yeah he did that mint back heal. WELL DONE CAPTAIN.

    The referee should never ref again. FUCKING DISGRACE WHAT A TWAT.

    I lol’d at Nicko’s post…

    @Nicko, another angry gooner whose upset he got outclassed.

    3 yellow cards, lost possession by a hefty sum, completed decimated in pass percentage. hell, the only shot they registered on net got RVP sent off because he shot it well after the whistle.

    look son, why don’t you just do us all a favour and repeat the arsenal warcry after me? “WE BEAT THE BEST CLUB IN THE WORLD, AND THE ONLY WAY THEY COULD BEAT US WAS 14 v 9!”

    there.. feel better?
