    West Ham 0 - 2 Man. Utd.

    Referee Mike Dean with the best Jeff Triplette impersonation i've seen in a long while.

    I have to pay a lot of money to go and watch that and that prick completely ruined the game after 15 mins. Bear in mind this is the same bloke that didn't send Ross Barkley off for his tackle in the Merseyside derby. Absolute freaking joke.

    He's that referee when you see he's doing your teams game you immediately start fearing the worst. He did 2 games of us vs Chelsea and that prick Costa got away with everything and if we looked his way that whistle was singing a song.

    If Arsenal is serious about competing this year in the league table we absolutely have to come away with 9 points leading up to our rematch with Chelsea. Swansea, Burnley and Watford (the last two at home) are all games that a serious club should win. Any draws or God forbid a loss and we'll know the season is a loss.

    If you get a chance have a butchers at Andy Carroll's goal yesterday. After a couple of weeks of things going very wrong, it was nice to finally have something to cheer.

    This ref is absolute horse crap wow how badly does this guy want to give the game away to Brunley. Even Mike Dean has never infuriated me this much.

    Ha he must have heard he'd upset you and gave Arsenal a last gasp penalty.

    Well you can pretty much put a nail in the Arsenal season for the premiere league. What a lackluster performance. I'll never understand Wenger and his squad selection. He puts some pace up front and we destroy teams so what does he do in a must win match? Takes Welbeck and Walcott out and puts Giroud up front. Then he splits up our starting defense and puts a couple lumps in back and we're down 0-2 at half at home to a team we should beat handily. Oh well on to the FA cup and Champions League.

    Interesting EFL Championship table at the moment.

    Big win by Huddersfield over Leeds late was massive.

    Have been following Huddersfield Town closely this year as they have an Aussie called Aaron Mooy who is on loan from Man City. Can play.

    My team Nottingham Forest have been steadily climbing out of the relegation zone in recent weeks. Still have some work to do.

    Had a big shock when I saw Henri Lansbury lining up for Aston Villa against us on the weekend. Last thing I knew he was our captain. :eek:

    It's always a shock when a player moves during the transfer window and then plays against you. I didn't think much of Lansbury when he was at West Ham. Good luck to Forest. They should be safe this year.

    I see Zola is working his defensive magic at Birmingham City.

    Lansbury's best performance for us was when he went in goal against Blackpool.......at least I think it was them.

    Funnily enough I watched a bit of Huddesfield and Leeds. I despise Leeds so was pleased they lost. I can't quite fathom why Man City bought that Mooy bloke though, he'll never ever get a game there even if he is decent. Must have been a few back handers involved.

    He played for their offshoot Melbourne City and was the best player down here in the A-League so maybe they felt he could improve significantly and sell him for a handy profit. He wouldn't be out of place in the EPL. I'd have him at Forest in a heartbeat.

    As for Lansbury - played 145 games for Forest and for the most part was a very solid contributor and a mainstay during what can only be regarded as a very tumultuous time for the club - with Fawaz the owner going through 8 managers in 3 and a half years.

    "He played for their offshoot Melbourne City"

    Right thanks that would explain things.

    Is Zola on the hot seat yet? 1 win, 4 draws, and 9 defeats = 7 points from 14 games. Birmingham are now 18 points away from the playoff places but only 10 points off the drop zone.
