v Persie clearly dived for the original free kick which led to his goal, although they definitely deserved the comfortable win.

Definitely Arsenal deserved to win, we were lack luster in the second half and were punished.

However... goals change games, refereeing decisions change games, blatant hand ball "apparently" a penalty should have been given, "could" have changed the game. Like it did fortunately for us last time out against United.

The massive frustration from the game besides the poor performance is the way the sport of football is going, maybe 6 or 7 times Arsenal players went down with hardly a scratch holding something as if shot. Not one of them got substituted injured, shockingly...

To me its an absolute disgrace and ruins the game. Also someone please correct me if Im wrong, is it not only compulsory to stop the game for a head injury? 3 occasions today the referee stopped the game for practically nothing, and definitely not anything to do with the head, allowing Arsenal to get the ball back from us through "fair play" giving it back, contradiction?!

Other than that, fair play Arsenal, other than faking injury and crowding referees in an attempt to convince, A very good attacking team that showed their metal today, still shaky at the back though for sure, a big investment in a world class centre back and we would be looking at the champions.

You were certainly the better team, but wouldn't say you deserved the 3-0 win. Quite clearly RVP for the first goal and then Birmingham should have had a penalty. Although you did dominate the 2nd half if the ref made the correct decisions in the first half then Arsenal would have been up against it.

Consistant fouling? Minimal contact.

It's not our fault that your players fall at the slightest touch (if any touch)

If decisions had gone our way we'd have no way been trailing at half time. The amount of times one of the the Arsenal players pulled up with an 'injury' when ever we began to counter was frankly disgusting. If I was Bowyer, I'd of 'stamped' on one of those ***** too ;)

I did notice this, actually. Quite apart from the horrifically bad diving, there was the continual niggly little complaints that miraculously disappeared as soon as play has been brought to a close. Cynical tactics by Arsenal.

What about Eboue's stamp on Ridgewell's back at the Emirates? That was much worse than today's. Karma my friend.

Was it just me or were the linesmen (on both sides) utter tripe?

did you see the bowyer stamp on sagna?
That's not cynical, that's dirty. There's a rather big difference. Besides, we all know Lee Bowyer's hardly a paragon, unlike Arsenal who are supposed to be the "good guys".
