    I think it has more to do with Mcclarens mentality though. He says he cares about the cup and the Europe League but he doesn't. He wants to focus on winning the title.

    Yeah, remember last season? During the quarter finals of the Europe League, he started with a far weaker team that he could have done. Maybe he's done it again..

    Couldn't sleep so I watched Los Angeles Galaxy 2-1 Vancouver Whitecaps. I found it amusing that to mark the ten-yard line they used spray paint.

    You know what I'm getting fed up of as an Arsenal fan? So many stupid defensive mistakes. It's not that we have bad defenders, it's that they keep making dumb errors that give away cheap goals. It's not like this is a problem just for this season, as long as I've supported Arsenal they've always been known for giving away stupid goals from individual errors, but from what I can recall, most of our goals against have been very avoidable, notably:

    Southampton at home
    Man City away
    Chelsea at home (BOTH goals)
    Norwich away
    Man Utd away (first goal)

    Don't even get me started on the Reading game.

    It's not something Wenger or Bould can improve upon in the sense of better defending, but it's definitely a mentality thing, and it seems to affect every Arsenal player at some point, and I'm sick of it.

    Though to be honest I don't mind losing to Man Utd, they played really well today, but as a collective set of results, it's not looking particularly rosy. We need a good result at Schalke midweek.

    EDIT: On another note, first shock of the FA Cup already, with Hereford beating Shrewsbury and old boss Graham Turner.

    It's just past midnight here, and i've just returned from PSV. We won 4-0 and our rival Ajax lost 0-2 to Vitesse. Sure that's nice, but it would help us better if that match ended in a draw. Ah well, if Twente loses to Feyenoord tomorrow (within approximately 14 hours), PSV will be at the top of the Eredivisie. Lucky for us, Feyenoord is in much better shape than Twente lately.

    ^ With all the rubbish play PSV seem to be doing, they find themselves top of the table tonight, can't complain too much eh?

    Meanwhile over in Italy, Juventus lose their long unbeaten streak at last, at home to Inter Milan. It seemed to be the day of first defeats of the season, since Paris Saint-Germain lost at home to Saint-Etienne, Ajax lost at home to Vitesse and Atletico Madrid lost at Valencia. So in the top seven European leagues (arbitrary number) only Barcelona, Porto, Benfica and Manchester City can still have unbeaten seasons.

    Although in Ukraine, Shakhtar Donetsk have an astonishing record of having won every league game so far this season, and in all competitions, they've only not won once, in a draw at (funnily enough) Juventus, which is hardly a bad result.

    Barcelona beat Celta de Vigo 3-1 with goals from Adriano, Villa and Alba. I'd admit as a Barcelona fan though, that Alba's goal was definitely offside, but hey, I'm taking it! XD

    Adriano was injured for 3 weeks to add to our defensive troubles this season too Messi got kicked in the knee by some jack too, but thank God he didn't get injured, I was worried!

    BTW EVERYONE, THIAGO MESSI WAS BORN YESTERDAY!!!! I'M HAPPY FOR YOU LEO!

    They actually played pretty well, except they should have scored a lot more. If they used their chances effectively, it could have become AT LEAST 10-0. Yes they are at the top of the table now but to stay there, FC Twente has to lose or has to play a draw against Feyenoord today.

    Damn, what would we all be without soccer..

    I'd be all right without football, I only got interested in it during the 2006 World Cup. We used to go to the pub and watch the England games, socialise with friends etc.
