Great game against Napoli. The first half was amazing. And a stunning goal by Ozil! And we killed the game off in the second.

The best thing I liked was the atmosphere inside Emirates. There was some Highbury magic in there.

Much said before the game like how Arsenal will suffer against Napoli and they'll repent losing Higuan to them etc..

But the way Arsenal dispatched Napoli, it was like watching the the old & once invincible Arsenal team again
Tremendous first half but what I particularly liked is the ease with which we are able to shut Napoli in second.

It's like business as-usual for Ozil and cant wait to have Cazorla & Walcott back. Season looking very promising for Arsenal indeed.

I think We have Chelsea, Liverpool, Dortmond, ManU games continuously in November and Everton, Napoli, ManC & Chelsea in December.

So, our run till end of december will decide whether we are title chaser or a mere top4 contender!!!

Yesterday night was toggling between Shakhtar Vs Man Utd and Man City vs Bayern. Was glued to the later. What a masterclass by Bayern (and this is coming from a Red Devil), HATS OFF!!!!

I stayed awake to watch the match only because of the holiday yesterday and man, am I glad I did! What a match. It has been some time since Arsenal played with such utter confidence! I was expecting the old defence issues to crop up, Napoli to score easily in the second half and then Arsenal again scramble in defense to hold on to the slender lead of a goal.

But that did not happen. They played spectacularly in the first half and shut Napoli down in the second. Maybe it was a bad day for Napoli but I still thought Arsenal were killer.

OTOH, ManU fans are not to be seen these days anywhere? No, am just talking about the pseudo-fans. Where are they all

@naveenroy

What is there to talk for us united fans Its all doom and gloom.

but seriously it was to be expected. Its never easy replacing big managers (especially if stability is to be maintained). I think Moyes will take at least 2-3 seasons to really set in (it took SAF 6). We can only hope we are still competing and can win a few cups in between.

I'd be happy if Arsenal win the title this year though. I'd be more happy if teams like Man City, Chelsea, Real Madrid win nothing at all!

Hahaha, its the phase any team has to go through I guess. Agree about the part of the other teams you've mentioned.

Can't agree more Naveenroy. I'l be happy to see the Red Devils finish in top 4 and Arsenal winning the title...

Here is spot on assessment of Gunners by one of great pundits out there. The match against WBA looks tough.

Guys, Is there a programme on TV that assimilates all of the matches played in a given week/fortnight and presents it in a concise capsule during the weekend. It is difficult to stay up and watch the matches and then be in the office on time every time, recording does not help either as weekend has its own demands. Details on programme title, channel name and show timings will be highly appreciated

You can always download "Match of the Day" (I think its a BBC thing). Google for it. Its available on download servers usually within a day or so (On 101greatgoals dot com). Its the perfect encapsulation of all the weekend's action that you are looking for.

I dont know if it is telecast in India though.

Recording would be simpler and less time consuming. I do not have a desk job and usually see my desk once or twice in a fortnight. Have to be at client/project sites in the morning hence no leeway with late arrivals in the morning.

Specifically need a summarised capsule on the small screen.

Footytube was my favourite last season, but I can't seem to watch EPL highlights from last weekend.
Footytube is up and running like clockwork. They show MOTD highlights by BBC. Great to watch if you haven't gotten to know the score/result yet!
