Didn't think we were that bad - slightly slow and ponderous in the final third against a team that came to draw. We're too static and don't run the defensive line enough but generally our play was good, played well off the ball, didn't give Palace an inch in the first half and in the second managed to penetrate more on the ball a little. We need more runners but that's been a problem for ages, not just today. This Palace side only lost 1-0 at the Etihad, don't think they're a walk over when they come to sit deep and defend hard.

Ozil is sex, we need to buy him a world class striker to play with.

Just got back, decent game overall, not brill in the first half but it is hard to expect us to dick all over Palace when they're defending like they were. Well played to Ox, looked outstanding in the middle even before his two goals but really put in a good performance. Cazorla was good too.

Must say fair play to the Palace supporters (even though they were W****rs at the tube station) because their support was great. Upper tier at Arsenal is pretty wank.

It Pulis - he will have drilled them all week and set out to frustrate us. They did a good job of keeping us quiet in the first half but you always felt we would get some chances when they tired in the second half and thankfully we were clinical.

Annoyed me that Jedinak got away with so many little fouls - many teams start with the game plan to disrupt our rhythm with fouls, often rotating on a single target like Wilshere. If the fouls aren't dangerous I don't blame them as it often works but it's up to the referee to set the tone of the match and too often I've seen them get the balance wrong, a yellow card to Jedinak would soon have cleaned his game up.

2 superb finishes. At half-time i must admit i was fearing it would end up 0-0. Chamakh showed a couple of nice touches. Credit to their fans. Except the attention seeker with no top on. ALL CHECK THE PL TABLE.
I want Carl Jenkinson back in a Arsenal shirt next season.

LOL, a gooner on another forum had this to say: "Congrats to Ox for tying Soldado on goals from open play this season."
