I think it the starting line-up and leggy performance highlights the fact that although we've got the players we don't have the squad yet. I wonder what kind of a team AW will put out for tuesday, I'm guessing Arshavin will start...

You are missing the point. Diaby did very little right, we all saw that, so why leave him on? I am not saying we should have started Song, if anything we should have started Arshavin, but Wenger often does this in big games, he gets overly conservative and it bites us in the arse. Who's to say we wouldn't have torn their midfield apart? its not as if Ballack is having a good season, in fact he has been God awful.
Why change formation and line up just because its Chelsea in the FA cup? if its not broke don't fix it.

Arsenal 1 - 2 Chelsea blame the age !?

Arsene Wenger believes Arsenal gave away "cheap" goals and also criticised the state of the pitch at Wembley, although he refused it as an excuse for the Gunners' defeat.

The Frenchman said: "It was a game where any mistake in the end could be costly.

"It is disappointing because we had a good start and after we dropped off.

"The game looked as through it would finish as a draw - I felt we gave two cheap goals away."

He still showed his unwavering belief in his young side though saying: "When you are so close and you are 20 years of age I don't know why you would be desperate."



our Central midfieders and defends are not that good today.
I kinda feel sad when the camera show a little boy crying so badly after the match.......

good game, i think we were just to strong, the likes of essian lampard and ballack made the difference, mind you drogba is so powerfull he shrugged silvestre of the ball like a ten year old.

Lets not forget we had more or less our entire defence out today, Almunia, Clichy, Sagna, Gallas and Djourou so to be honest its not to bad but Fabianski should have done better for both goals.

What knee jerk? we all saw how crap Diaby was. Is it wrong to criticise Wenger for leaving him on?

I think SGW is referring more to the comments on Fabianski, yes he screwed up today, but to say he should feck off, never wear an Arsenal shirt again is going too far....

Just got back from Wembley.
Not amused. Having to walk past 40 odd thousand singing blue c*** made me feel quite ill.
Diaby was poor, Fabianski was poor and the others looked a bit tired to me.
For the first time in ages I think Wenger got the team selection wrong today.
He sees them in training so maybe he thought some of them looked too tired to start, but why the hell he started with Denilson and Diaby in midfield I'll never know.
Arshavin didn't even play on Wednesday so he wasn't tired.
Should've started imo.
Cesc was playing far too deep and what the hell was going on with the subs?
RVP and Ade off? :dizzy: Some very odd decisions today.

I said before that I was worried about Fabianski and I think today I had every reason to be.
Like I said before he's a good 'keeper but I think he should still be number 3 in line and we should've bought a new number 2 in the summer.
His mad habit of rushing out of goal is just too impulsive and dangerous.
He makes me nervous all the time.

Ah ok. Well I agree with that. Not that Fabianski should bugger off. He may f***ked up but our midfield was awful.

We played and got robbed... 12th man or more on the SCUMS side!!! Even when Young Theo scored you STILL could tell that this game was gonna go well and the SCUMS cannot play... It's always a cup match that we get cheated when we're drawn with the SCUMS, League matches... YEAH, we have our say and do it right... today was our day to go to the Finals and win... as I believe that we would have done it... Even our records shown it... W69 and SCUMS W49 + todays! I agree with the cheap goals and Fabs is not to blame as he done well... ALL of our boys done well and we will take this as a positive... Now there is one Trophy in sight and we will try for that and hopefully have the SCUMS again! I'm sure if we do have them in the finals of the Champs League, It will be a different story for Arsenal... Who knows???!.

Just like our Junior gunner who felt hurt in the stands, I felt his pain also! But we still need to back our Team 100% and keep our heads up for them as we still got one Competition to go... This Little gooner needs to see another side! It was just ashame to see our main guys Injured as it would have been a SCUMS loss.
