18.24 – Charlton 0-3 Arsenal (Henry, Wiltord, Edu).
Another record for the Gunners. Today’s goals mean Arsenal eclipse Man City’s record for scoring in consecutive games in the top division. Henry opened the scoring just before half time, the seemingly unstoppable Sylvain Wiltord stuck in the second, and Edu got his first goal of the season with a header in the last couple of minutes. It could have been more, with Toure hitting the post/bar and Edu having another goal disallowed for Kanu being offside.
So Arsenal stay top of the league, keep scoring, keep winning and keep playing the kind of football that most of us could only dream about seeing Arsenal produce. All this without Freddie, without Bob and with a tired Patrick Vieira. What’s it going to be like when we get everyone fully fit?
UPDATE: Meant to mention this earlier, but does anybody think the FA are going to take any action over David Beckham’s elbow on Lee Bowyer? Will the FA sanction the England captain for his sly dig, or do they just go around charging players because a referee (with no back-up from either linesman or the 4th official) alleges that a player swore at him? On one hand it was lovely to see Lee Bowyer being elbowed in the face, but on the other hand, it will piss me off if the FA don’t take David Romeo Winston Churchill Beckham to task about this.
Also, just want to wish Dead Kenny all the best for tomorrow. A win by 5 clear goals will lift you to second from bottom mate….you can do it, it’s only Sp*rs. Also, take a look at Arsenal Shorts, it’s new and similar in many ways to Arseblog ;o)
Finally today, a word of warning. Next week is going to be incredibly busy for me for a number of reasons, so if you don’t see any updates for a couple of days towards the end of the week, don’t panic too much. I, as The Terminator might say, ‘ll be back.
