    After how easy Liverpool had it in that first-half, I never expected Bournemouth to score 4 in the second half! What a weekend of football it's been, amazing entertainment (albeit catasrophic defending).

    Eddie Howe still impressing at Bournemouth, though. Looks like he could potentially be a very good manager.

    Mourinho has won 2 out of his last 11 matches as Manchester United manager - carrying on from the sterling job he did at Chelsea I see <ok> Speaking of Chelsea, United are 13 points behind them now! <laugh>

    The bloke isn't top dog anymore and I think he's struggling to accept it.

    I was getting a bit scared when his team started looking more cohesive and working hard..but results speak for themselves,it shows how he has fallen when he cant get a squad that he has spent 100m on and is the richest squad assembled in football history to win half the game he plays,eto'o today made some comments that pep is still the best and there is no doubting him despite never having a good relationship with him and that joses ideas are getting dated and you cant just tell a team to wait for it and defend anymore and that he should change with the times if he doesnt want to be left behind...he saod at inter it was okay but at chelsea in this time not so much.

    Ouch. Already feels like the City game is a must win, Chelsea look unstoppable right now and they have the huge advantage of having no European football, so I expect them to power through this festive period, while others start to struggle, also no doubt they will beat Palace on Saturday, so by the time we play again, we are going to be nine points behind them.

    Gundogan is out for City now, needing kneee surgery. So they will be without him, Fernandinho and Aguero on Sunday, so that gives us a chance.

    They could have all three playing and we'd have a good chance. It's very rare that the deciding factor of a match involving arsenal is the opposition. More than often its how well we've been set up and motivated. We could lose 6-1 or win 4-0... Neither would overly surprise me!

    We've had some good results against City recently, so we're more than capable of beating them on their own turf.

    I would be unhappy with anything but a League title or Champions League trophy.

    I think both are fairly unlikely though - Wenger doesnt seem to have fixed any of the issues we have every year. Only difference is our squad is a little deeper.

    Well this last week has been utterly disastrous, we lost both our games, and all the teams around us won both of their games, damn.

    I will never understand why Southampton always bend over for Spurs, yet always give us a bloody hard time.
    Why can't they let us **** them over like that???
