MY THOUGHTS: rite ere is how i saw it 2day the 1st half da lads in claret n blue wer very poor not 1 pass went 2 da rite person n we got punished by stupid defensive blunders takin nuffink away frm arsenal they played 2 ther strengths n passed da ball around smartly n effectively n totaly owtplayed VILLA n da 2nd half we made a quick start by pullin a goal back wiv a beauty of a goal by youngster CIARAN CLARK bt da defensive blunders took ther toll again n despite a spirited fight back which CLARK got his 2nd goal in claret n blue bt houllier who changed 2 a 4-4-2 formation which led 2 da spirited fight back then decided 2 got back to a 4-5-1 which was a step back in my eyes n then wiv only a few minutes remainin pushed RICHARD DUNNE up front a move that left VILLA exposed @ da back especialy wiv JAMES COLLINS (who was playin da last 10minutes wiv wot looked like a reacurrance of his thigh injury) not very mobile n thus wen ARSENAL did counter attack in stoppage time they met little resistance n put the game beyond VILLA 2 da dismay of da VILLA FAITHFUL n thus VILLA'S unbeaten home record this season gets thrown owt da window enuff said all eyes fall on da MIDWEEK WEST MIDLANDS DERBY GRUDGE MATCH IN DA CARLIN CUP QUARTER FINAL @ ST ANDREWS
