This one was truly odd I thought. He went down but not a single person, including Izzet, seemed to complain. He got up and for a split second seemed content to walk away until he saw the ref pulling the card. I really don't see how that decision can be given; if a card is given without even a hint of protest then players risk being booked/sent off for simply tripping over their own feet.

The refs decision on Saturday certainly was a load of old bullocks...

An undeserved 1-0 away win at Sunderland. That aptly describes our plight at the moment - but a crucial victory, nonetheless.

point apiece is a fair result but the performance deserves the three though. Arse didn't get their first corner until the 88th min whereas we were onto our 10th. no worries though for Arse, they know we are crap at set-pieces.

nice kick by Ridgewell on Van Persie. funny, no comments from Wenger.
That blast came from the pants! That thing's operational!

I was surprised by the level of commitment shown by Villa in the match against the Gunners yesterday. They could have gone on to win, as Arsenal weren't firing on all cylinders.

Lose to Newcastle


Lose to Wigan


Lose to Charlton


Does anyone see a pattern here that is eluding Mr Pardew at the moment?

I can take the loss to Wigan but we could and sould have skinned the Barcodes and the Addicks.

Someone who can put the ball in the net would help. Haywood must be the Anti-Hurst. He gets a lot right then shoots into the stars rather than the net.

We'd better beat Everton next time we see them.

Shit, get your money on Charlton for relegation. Seriously.

Comment of the season by Chris Coleman, after Gary O'Neill had scored another goal aided by a blatant handball for Pompey (the home team) against Fulham last Saturday. The referee was, you've guessed it, Mike Riley.

"We saw it from 60 yards away" said Coleman " but to be fair to Mike Riley, if he missed Milan Baros's handball against Everton, he's not going to spot this one".

Tou and bloody che!

I notice that, after a whole two victories in three days, no one else is visiting this thread.

An away win at Portsmouth - excellent. Our third league win in a row - the first time we've done that since September 2004, I'm told.

Is this the return of the Everton of last season? They scrapped a few 1-0s then, didn't they. I think they've turned the corner, Pete. It won't be a trophy-laden season but I don't think you'll be in a relegation scrap unless you're blighted by injuries during the second half of the season. Your squad is a bit shallow. I bet you're glad of Tim Cahill. I'd love to have him at West Ham.

Meanwhile, in Birmingham the chickens are coming home to roost for 'Mr Loyalty' Bruce. Beaten at home by a weakly underperforming Charlton team is not the route out of danger.

I've seen too many false dawns to think we're out of the problem area yet Neil - but it's looking better, if not spectacular.

I think Brum are massive underachievers - they've got some talent there, but can't win an argument at the moment. and Bruce is beginning to sound defeated to me. A bad sign for them.

If I were a Middlesbrough fan, I'd be really concerned. They are in freefall at the moment, and 7-0 drubbings take some getting over. A couple more bad weeks and they are right in amongst it - and I'm not sure the players will relish it. I'm convinced McLaren won't - he's lucky he has a loyal chairman, I think.

Boro's chairman is more loyal than most but he has shown with Robson that he can be brutal when he has to. Imagine being manager and having another manager, Venables, brought in to rescue the club while you are still on the payroll out of respect. He knifes you but embarrasses you first.

If I were Boro chairman I would be looking at acres of empty seats, looking at the manager, the empty seats, the manager, the empty seats...

I wouldn't be looking at what's going on on the pitch. It would be too painful.

Moyes has got something about him that McLaren hasn't. Bruce's weaknesses as a manager have never been exposed because he never stayed anywhere long enough...until now.

Simon Jordan must be laughing long and hard into his cornflakes every morning.
