Saturday began with an astounding game in London city where little Fulhum cruised to a 2-0 win over Manchester United, who had Rooney and Scholes sent off. Next, Spurs edged Chelsea 1-0. In the late kick off, Saturday 'Navrouz' night, we played like only The Arsenal can, to thump Newcastle 1-3 at St. James Park.
We were close to magnificent. Nasri had a great game and capped it with the third goal. Bendtner put in another strong performance and has everyone talking about how well he's been doing in recent games. Arsene knew, he always knew, we just don't see it, but he does. We should trust him blind and stop acting like we might know something he doesn't.
Sunday night Liverpool mauled Villa, to go within touching distance of Manchester United, who remain one point ahead with a game in hand. There is 3 points between us and Villa in 5th place now, but we still have the big three to play, and Villa will be closing the season with a much lighter fixture list.
Nevertheless, another great week for us. Walcott who had another injury scare with a swollen knee, should be back for our next game in two weeks (after an international break next weekend). We were awarded a chance to host the one of our greatest ever — Robert Pires — after we drew Villarreal in the Champions League Quarterfinal.
I am smiling a heck of a lot.
