  1. Ianor says:

    Watching now peter drury and jim beglin giving thier thoughts of the match.

  2. scott says:

    Difference between striker who can finish and one who can’t. And Shuttle adds another.

  3. Ianor says:

    Same story again for arsenal their third lunch time kick off game of the season. they are vulnerable at the start, anfield,etihad and now bridge. Shoulde be humaliting score line….

  4. Ianor says:

    Unbleviable scenes in bridge. Gibbs sent off. thats an awfull decision by mariner wrong person has to be chamberlen.

  5. Christopher Harris says:

    Bizarre scenes at Stamford Bridge, sending off Kieran Gibbs instead of The Ox. A blessing in disguise for Arsenal maybe based on how poor Gibbs has been in the first half.

    What a match for the first game of the World Soccer Talk European Experience travel package. Wish I could be there!

  6. Ianor says:

    How is this is can happen in the best league in the world? Chamberlen telling the ref it was me not gibbs. And the couldn’t believe him.. Strange…

  7. Ianor says:

    Peter drury “this is beyond unbeleivalble i wonder who would fa give the three match? Jim ” i hope its ox.

  8. scott says:

    Is anyone really surprised, Arsenal were completely outplayed by an average Spurs team last week.

  9. Christopher Harris says:

    Three of the first four goals in this game were scored from Chelsea attack’s down the right wing (Arsenal’s left side). Coincidence? I think not.

  10. scott says:

    I’m loving these Wenger reaction shots.

  11. Ianor says:

    Intresting to hear what dermot gallacher had to say at the break. He is in the studio.

  12. Ianor says:

    “He doesn’t know what he was doing tottaly can’t understand the player comes to him and told him he is the one who acted this. and mariner discussed his lines man rathar”. Thoughts of ghallacher.

  13. francis says:

    Well this ones’s over…Time to switch over to Bein & check out Derby-Forest…..oh wait that’s a blowout also!

  14. Smokey Bacon says:

    That angry gunner might make another appearance on YouTube after this humiliation. It’s now all about the Cup for them.

    • Ivan says:

      I don’t know, Smokey: even lifting the cup with all those lower league teams remaining can’t make up for the humiliation of getting pummeled by Man City, Chelsea and Liverpool this season…and the Cup is no gimmi either: Arsenal are second to none in snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

      I can’t even make fun of Arsenal any more, just feel sorry for their fans: it’s the same story, season after season.

      And, no, I don’t have a short memory, I remember very well the days of Bergkamp, Henry, Viera, Campbell, Pires….but you can’t live on memories…

      I know it’s easy to put up the “Wenger Out” banner again after a 6:0 thrashing, but…really, for the good of the club, they do need to open a new page there.

      • Jim says:

        Sack him and they have a good chance of winning the FA Cup? Who do they bring after they sack Arseneby the way? I am a Chelsea also. How is it his fault Giroux doesn’t putt away his chance and that Ox basically killed their chances when he handballed a shot that was going wide and gives awaya needless penalty and gets a man sent off?
        I don’t like him or Arsenal but to sack him when they have a decent chance of winning a trophy would be PR suicide. Imagine what all the Arsenal fans would say about the last 9 years. Sack him when we finally win a trophy and have some money in the coffers but when we didn’t do anything for the good part of 8 years you just let it all go downhill?

  15. Ianor says:

    I think we seen today the new champions of england. Congratulations to chelsea the electric champions..

  16. Americano & Proud says:

    The app not working for me today. Strange.

  17. Smokey Bacon says:

    What’s this at Cardiff? I said earlier this season that Campbell has real quality. If he was more consistent he’d be in the England squad……and at a different club than Cardiff.

  18. Americano & Proud says:

    Candidate for goal of the year by Alex Tettey of Norwich. Wow.

  19. Ken says:

    Can someone buy Brendan some chapstick?

  20. Ivan says:

    Tettey’s goal for Norwich…holy smokes!

    Incredible hit!!!

  21. Christopher Harris says:

    I’m getting whiplash watching Everton-Swansea, and I’m feeling dizzy.

  22. brn442 says:

    Coutinho’s link play has been disappointing as of late.

  23. Christopher Harris says:

    MacKay > Solskjaer

  24. Iancransonsknees says:

    Where’s jtm?

    • Guy says:

      Inconsolable after today’s match, but Forest are still in it.

      btw, for not playing today Stoke did pretty well!

  25. goisles01 says:

    LFC could roll out of bed and have 2 goals right now. Forget West Ham, Liverpool are the “Hammers”. Why is Welback not starting with the injury to Van Persie?

  26. Ivan says:

    Rooney, my oh my!!!

    We’ve seen some special goals today!

  27. M own says:

    West ham versus Man U ..Hoof ball shld suit fine for both the sides.

  28. M Owen says:

    Was that cross number 1000 in the game.

  29. Flyvanescence says:

    This is the team united should be playing except maybe januzaj instead of young. Fortunately Moyes doesnt seem to know how to use 3 attacking midfielders who rotate and roam like most teams who play 4-2-3-1

  30. francis says:

    Well at least United will enter Tuesday’s derby in some semblance of good form, which should make for a good game

  31. M Owen says:

    Cardiff managers reaction to presser ..wht a d1c$
    Guess trying kiss scums a$$ as there might be a opening next season.

  32. francis says:

    ….and in news from the lower leagues, Jemaine Defoe scores again!
