    3 points!! Newcastle finally won again...I forgot what that is like. 3-0 defeat of Portsmouth, at Fratton Park. Solid win.

    Big blow. Things continue downhill for Arsenal.

    I'm fucking heartbroken....Cesc has been my favorite player for several years, how disappointing....they can barely field a midfield now!!!

    they're gonna need to make a major signing or 3 in the transfer window now to avoid a tremendous freefall in the league table...not sure if Wenger has it in him though

    Haven't heard a lot on the rumor front. I do know that Owen had decided to go through the rest of the season at Newcastle. I'm hopeful, with a strong finish, he will decide to stay.

    Sky Sports was reporting 2 days ago that Arsenal were going hard after Arshavin and Tevez, although I don't really see Utd selling Tevez to Arsenal

    I love watching Owen, i hope he stays at Newcastle as well

    I do as well. Yes, he is oft injured. When he plays, he scores. Plain and simple.

    I hope Viduka starts to get more playing time. I still believe their best lineup consists of Owen up top, supported by Martins and Viduka.

    that little heel flick pass by Viduka to Duff in the 90th minute against Spurs over the weekend was great

    Yikes. Reds destroyed my boys, 5-1. Newcastle is like a MASH unit right now.

    Gerrard got into a scrap after the debacle:

    Arshavin would be a good fit with Arsenal's playing style, I'm all for it.

    Wenger wants to make moves, but worried about cash:

    EDIT: Losing Cesc, along with Walcott and Rosicky is a huge blow to the midfield. I can see why he wants to add to that.

    Rumor going about that Wegner is targeting N'Zogbia from Newcastle. In a way, it makes sense:

    1. He is French.
    2. With the logjam in the midfield at Newcastle, N'Zogbia is expendable.
    3. With all the injuries of the Arsenal mids, they need help immediately.
    4. He won't cost that much, so the tight budget won't be a factor.

    Thoughts Gunner fans?

    I love Arteta, but I doubt this will happen, Wenger will still pull the same old, I can't spend money routine, although we're one of the richest clubs in the world

    he'll find some cheaper French alternative most likely

    The talk in the news over here today was that he was willing to spend 12 Million on him.

    Wow. That would be surprising, based on the previous lack of funds reports.

    interesting... although I still have difficulty seeing it happening...although the Gunners need to do something if they have any hopes of finishing top four...

    with a midfield consisting of Nasri,Denilson, Diaby, Song, Eboue...it doesn't inspire a ton of confidence

    you need strikers? you can have Bendtner!

    At this point anything will help. We look lost in midfield without Cesc. He's one of those players that I didn't fully appreciate his impact until his absence.

    Doesn't this always seem to be the case? And while we're on the subject, Nasri needs to step it up a bit. He hasn't been making a big enough impact lately.

    I actually think Bendtner has potential, but so far he tends to get in the way a lot and looks confused at times...and I believe he thinks he's a little better than he really is

    conceding extremely late goals has cost them several points so far, with a couple of games that they should have won, they would be right in the thick of things surprisingly...

    I love Cesc, he brings an intensity to the team that they sometimes lack...I think Spain is beginning to realize that now too

    Nasri is very good, but definitely inconsistent so far, I still have high hopes for him, maybe not as a focal point of the midfield, but with a few stronger players around him, I think he will shine

    No mention of Steven Gerrard being arrested yesterday for assault. Couldn't happen to a nicer chap. Well, if you will go clubbing in Southport.
