  1. 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….

  2. 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!

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. “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.

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

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

    1. 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.

      1. 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?

  8. 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.

  9. 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?

  10. 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

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