well I think I would have been more relaxed had I not just found out we have a few more players out or who are doubtful for this game , we know Ramsey and Ozil are out ...but now Giroud has an ankle problem , Kieron Gibbs has injured his calf , and Walcott , Rosicky and Wilshire all face late fitness tests to see if they can play .

It is good we have Podolski back though , i hope Wenger has made his players aware that they have to treat Cardiff with respect as they have proved capable of scoring against anyone if they are given a chance .

With Man City having won at Swansea to go top Arsenal will now have to beat Cardiff to regain first place.

Very poor first half from Arsenal !
However i do feel Cardff's fine defensive effort thus far will wain with fatigue half way through the second half and Arsenal will bury a couple.

2 late goals send Arsenal back on top of the table!

Any comments on the Gunners victory?

I think Wenger will only buy if he can get the right player ...we have Walcott , Giroud , Podolski and Bendtner...who can all score goals ..but with a few injured it means we are a bit stretched ..I am sure we will be linked with a few players during this transfer period , just have to see what comes up .

It was a nail biting last 5 mins ...the two goals were such a relief and means we are still fighting it out at the top of the table .

I saw the berbatov rumor about 3 days ago ,not usre if he's what we need to be honest. Just think the bloke is a bit too lazy and a bit toxic when things aren't going right on the pitch. A fine player without question ,probably the most skilled big man that ever graced our league. I also don;t like his off the field habit of being a smoker ,not sure that's something we want to promote to our kids. I would rather go for Defoe to be honest ,not sure if Spurs would sell him to us ,but he has the type of quickness around the box that we need. He can get his shot off very quickly and provides a threat just outside the box that will open up the area inside the box for intricate passes that lead to tap in's.
