Spurs from the absolute brink. We were pretty poor up until the 89th minute.

Good round of results for us. Top 4 will be interesting

If every team was willing to give Xhaka the kind of time WH did he'd be a world beater.

He pulls off some lovely passes when he wants too. Needs to sort his concentration and tackling though.

Anyone see the penalty balls up by Keith Stroud in the Newcastle game last night?

Penalty scored, but referee decides there's encroachment (there is, fair enough, 1 newcastle player and 4 Burton players) and awards Burton a free kick

Didn't see it but felt sorry for him reading it. What a fucking balls up.

Would one of the linesmen / the 4th official not say it to him?

He has an absolute wand of a left foot. I can't remember an Arsenal player as ill disciplined though. He can't tackle and he can't run, which isn't a good combo in the premier league.

They took 5 minutes to discuss it between the linesman and 4th official and still got it wrong....

Then played 3 minutes injury time at the end of the half :lol:

yeah, it really was shambolic. It's embarrassing enough that he was initially getting it wrong, but that none of his team put their foot down and told him he was way off.

Really, the lot of them deserve to be punished for it. Could have been the difference of 2 points in the title race (or 3 considering a goal changes the balance of play)

It's not a high bar at the moment. Wengers completely lost it. He has Danny fucking Welbeck up front instead of Sanchez.

Arsenal are such a joy to watch at present. Their fans deserve these special moments.

Watched the first half last night before going asleep. Honestly could not believe the score when I woke

It was looking like we'd kill the game rest players

He's saying he didn't know anything about Barkley's family history, but that hardly excuses it

It excuses the racist accusations but not the horrible sentiment in there either way

Never has an entire city wanted a man to die as much

I wish they hadn't bothered with the whole racist thing because its detracting from what an utter cunt he is anyway.
