1st half : They controlled the first 15 minutes with energy and determination but, in reality, only created one chance. That came in the third minute, Arsenal won a corner on the left. Nasri floated it to the near post and Diaby rose highest to plant a header against the top of the bar. It would take until the 18th minute for them to create another. Nasri showed his pace down the left and crossed for Bendtner at the near post. The Dane met it powerfully with his head but it deflected wide off the covering Lucas Neill.West Ham’s only forays in to the Arsenal half were sanguine runs by Carlton Cole on to equally optimistic balls forward. The hosts’ grip on the game was hardly vice-like but they were showing much more appetite than Zola’s side, who had rattled up six wins and a draw in their previous seven games. Midway through the half, Diaby slid in late on Valon Behrami.The Frenchman’s booking was inevitable. It was also his fifth of the season and means he misses the North London derby next weekend. Arsenal suffered another blow nine minutes before half-time when Eboue limped off following a challenge by Scott Parker. Carlos Vela replaced him and his introduction caused a complete change of formation. The Mexican took up his now usual role on the left flank, Bendtner went to the right and Nasri played just behind Adebayor. Depending on your viewpoint (and whether Arsenal had the ball) it was a 4-4-1-1, a 4-2-3-1 or a straight 4-5-1. Whatever it was, it was a change. However the alteration would actually lead to West Ham’s only chance of the half. It came deep into injury time after Jack Collison had won a corner. Mark Noble swung it over and James Collins stooped to send a header towards the far end of the goal. Gael Clichy nodded the ball off the line when in fact the effort may have been drifting wide. Whatever Wenger said to his side at the break, it gave them renewed urgency immediately after the restart.
2nd half : A couple of minutes in, Bendtner’s swivelling shot was blocked. And there would be an even better chance in the 49th minute after Neill hacked down Vela on the left. Nasri’s floated free-kick was only half-cleared by Robert Green and eventually the ball was looped towards goal by Toure on the edge of the area. With the keeper stranded, Collins had to nod the ball off the line. As we moved to the hour-mark, the home side were now utterly on top and starting to pen West Ham in their own area. Denilson had a header blocked then, on 62 minutes, came a flash of the old flowing Arsenal. A sweeping move saw Nasri’s touch release Sagna on the right. He measured a low cross to the onrushing Adebayor.However he slid the ball agonisingly wide at the near post. Clearly, the best chance of the match. A couple of minutes later, Denilson sent a bending, swirling effort inches past the angle of post and bar. The ball was barely back in play before Van Persie was called to the bench so he could get stripped.It was something the Arsenal fans had been calling for over the previous 10 minutes. The 25-year-old came on for Bendtner. If Arsenal had been urgent they were now on red alert. In the 72nd minute, Vela's high, hanging cross was met by the equally high and hanging Adebayor. However his header was easy fare for Green. Arsenal pushed right up to the final whistle but they would do no better. They also lost Diaby to a nasty looking injury. At full time emotions were mixed. Arsenal had been the better side but the scoreline did not reflect it. That scenario needs to change in the next few weeks.
Full Time : Draw. Arsenal 0, West Ham United 0.

Everton 1-1 Arsenal, 28th January 2009.
1st half : Arsenal started brightly. They were busy and bustling and barely relinquished possession in the first five minutes. However they had nothing to show for it bar a fierce Van Persie free kick which deflected wide off Cahill. The home crowd were cowed into silence but Everton soon got a foothold in the game and, more specifically, Arsenal's right flank. Cahill, Marouane Fellaine and Steven Pienaar regularly ventured over to that side of the pitch to outnumber Sagna and Denilson, exploiting their man advantage and Fellaini's height advantage. It was a profitable ploy. After eight minutes, Leighton Baines raced to the byline and crossed low for Fellaine at the near post. Gallas smuggled the ball behind as the Belgian sized up a shot. Then Mikel Arteta's corner flicked off Phil Jagielka's head and bounced wide. It sparked a long spell of Everton pressure with Arteta dictating proceedings from a 'quarter-back' position in front of his own back four. Arsenal, after their promising start, were struggling to get Samir Nasri and Van Persie on the ball. They reverted to Plan B at times - going long to Adebayor - but Jagielka and Joleon Lescott nullified the big man's threat. Everton had only conceded two goals in seven weeks - both to Liverpool's Steven Gerrard - and you could see why. Diaby and Nasri picked up bookings for careless challenges but the visitors continued to probe and, after weathering the Everton storm, they finished the first half strongly. After 32 minutes Nasri sped past Tony Hibbert to the left byline and crossed towards Van Persie. The Dutchman stretched but could not quite wrap his 'chocolate leg' around the ball and his effort bounced wide. Seconds later Adebayor stormed through the centre but was crowded out. Nonetheless, these were good signs for Arsenal.
2nd half : They continued to impress early in the second half. Van Persie led a swift breakaway five minutes after the break and picked out Denilson, lurking on the right corner of the box. The Brazilian had time to take a touch but opted for a poorly-executed first-time effort with his left foot. Arsenal's best chance of the match so far went begging. Everton hit back. This time Cahill, anticipating well, pinched the ball in front of Djourou and fired low past Almunia's post and into the side-netting. It was agonisingly close but the Australian didn't have to wait long to make amends. As the hour mark passed, Everton made further inroads down the left and Baines crossed for Cahill to leap and nod into the bottom corner from 10 yards out. It was his 100th goal in English football, and it left Arsenal with plenty to do. They set about their task gamely. Van Persie picked out Alex Song with a free kick in the middle of the park and charged into the box to meet the lofted return with a downward header which Tim Howard grabbed at his feet. Then Wenger brought on Emmanuel Eboue and Nicklas Bendtner to try and rescue a point. Everton - bolstered by their resolute back line - held firm and could even have sewn up the points on the counter-attack. But they were pegged back at the death. With just 70 seconds left on the clock, Diaby's diagonal pass from deep found Van Persie in the left channel. The Dutchman chested the ball into his path and lashed a fierce drive past Howard. Time will tell how significant that will be.
Full Time : Draw. Everton 1, Arsenal 1.

Cardiff City 0-0 Arsenal, 25th January 2009.
1st half : Dave Jones’ side started with real purpose this afternoon and might have grabbed the lead on a couple of occasions in the first half.After just seven minutes, Chris Burke chased a long ball over the top but his shot was blocked. Then Joe Ledley crossed from the left and McCormack snatched a header wide.On the quarter-hour, a long clearance form Gabor Gyepes evaded Kolo Toure and McCormack decided to take his shot early from the edge of the area. The ball bobbled a couple of feet wide with Fabianski struggling.Cardiff were clearly on top. Just before the 20-minute mark, they had two superb chances inside 60 seconds. First, Ledley nodded over. Fabianski took the goal-kick too quickly and Cardiff recovered the ball. Paul Parry advanced and the Arsenal defence opened up as Bacary Sagna slipped. The midfielder fired over when he should have at least made Fabianski save.You felt that Cardiff had to score while they were in the ascendancy or Arsenal would make them pay.And they should have.In the 20th minute Van Persie’s ball found Nasri in utter isolation on left of the area. The French international had ample time to steady himself before firing goalwards. Peter Enckelman bided his time and won this particularly game of patience.Gradually Arsenal stemmed Cardiff’s flow. Just past the half-hour, Gibbs won the ball at the back and set up an attack. It ended with the same player driving a shot just past the post from the edge of the area. Five minutes later, Bendtner’s deep cross was tapped back to Van Persie by Nasri. The Dutchman’s effort was weak and easily saved by Enckleman.By now the game had lost focus. However there would be one major minute just before the half-time whistle. Parry’s cross was partially punched away by Fabianski and, in the melee, Cardiff had claims for a penalty when Burke’s header hit Gibbs at the far post. Arsenal broke immediately and went three against two for a moment. However, despite ample space, Bendtner could not convert from Van Persie’s pass. A clear chance. 2nd half : The visitors were better immediately after the break. But even though Arsenal were on top, Cardiff would have the clearest chance in the early stages when McCormack collected the ball just inside the opposing half, raced forward and let fly from 30 yards. A backtracking Fabianski was forced to desperately bat the ball past the post. The game was starting to open up and, if anything, that worked in Arsenal’s favour. On the hour, Gibbs clipped the ball to Van Persie on the edge of the six-yard area. The Dutchman executed a superb shot on the turn but Enckelman kicked the ball away. By now, Diaby had already replaced Ramsey and, midway through the half, Adebayor came on for Eboue. Clearly Wenger did not want a replay. The substitutes had an effect. Arsenal were suddenly bigger, stronger and more in control. Adebayor scuffed an effort into the hands of Enckelman with 15 minutes left and the keeper then caught an attempted curler from Nasri.However Arsenal’s energy would fizzle out. The Cardiff crowd roused their side for one final offensive. They were nearly rewarded when McCormack fired his free-kick against the woodwork in the 87th minute. It was the final moment of medicore match. A draw for a lower league side in the FA Cup is always classed as a moral victory. That is probably true this afternoon. However, at the same time, you always fancy the higher league side to go through on their own patch. We'll see about that on February 3.
Full Time : Draw. Cardiff City 0, Arsenal 0.

Hull City 1-3 Arsenal, 17th January 2009.
1st half : In the 28th minute, Emmanuel Eboue’s skills saw him brought down on the right. Van Persie’s whipped-in free-kick looked destined for the top corner but Myhill’s fingertips touched the ball onto the bar and Djourou could not turn in his shot from close range.It was a massive chance but Hull could not clear the ball and it would cost them. A couple of quick corners later, Van Persie floated the ball to the far post and Adebayor steered home the simplest of headers. It was the Togolese targetman’s 12th goal of the season and lifted him level with Van Persie at the top of Arsenal’s scoring charts.A lead was a luxury. In recent games, Arsenal had been forced to roll up their sleeves and graft their way to late victories. The goal seemed to make a massive difference.Suddenly there was a spring in the visitors’ step while Hull’s body language betrayed their lack of confidence.Nine minutes before the break Arsenal should have doubled their lead. Adebayor crossed from the left and an unmarked Eboue sliced the ball wide at the far post.
2nd half : The striker was clearly in the mood today. Five minutes into the second half he ended a fine Arsenal move by blasting a stinging shot at Myhill.Wenger’s men were starting to look comfortable. But the introduction of Manucho unsteadied them and the home fans claimed penalty when the Angolan clashed with Djourou in the area on the hour.Six minutes later, Hull would grab their equaliser. Bernard Mendy had ample time to fire in a cross from the right flank but his effort was aided by a deflection off Clichy’s foot. It was a crucial touch because it meant the ball floated nicely into the path of Cousin who had a simple job to nod into the top corner from close range.Wenger changed formation immediately. Eboue was brought off and Bendtner came on as Arsenal went 4-3-3.Van Persie dribbled a free-kick wide and Diaby slashed a shot equally adrift but Arsenal were searching for ideas.They found one with eight minutes left. Bendtner tucked a ball inside to Van Persie just outside the area. The Dutchman showed elusive skills to immediately fed Nasri on the left. The Frenchman buried a low shot beyond Myhill and just inside the far post.Four minutes later Bendtner killed the game by sweeping home a third.The Dane could have snaffled a fourth in injury time but his close-range header bounced back off the post.Yet, but that time, Arsenal had what they wanted.
Full Time : Arsenal won. Hull City 1, Arsenal 3.

Joke of the day.
One day an aeroplane has to go to Tokyo for an emergency flight. It was stormy followed by heavy rains. During the flight, the aeroplane got a flight problem. The plane was hard to control. It can't be manage properly. The pilot was too scared and asks if there is any nearest airport so that they can land there. The only nearest airport was only Brunei airport (don't look at the map cos it just a story). The pilot tries to call the Brunei airport that their plane is going to landthere.
Pilot : Can anyone receive this message?
RBA : Yes.carry on tah
Pilot: Our plane is stuck by a problem..
RBA: What problem?
Pilot : Our left wings have been struck by a thunder..
Pilot : what? Whatever.how should I do?
RBA : Bah.try to move the plane to the right..
Pilot : I can't
RBA : Why?
Pilot : My steering does not functioning anymore..
RBA : Calm down.try to use the automatic driver steering
Pilot : I can't
RBA : Why?
Pilot : Coz the mechanics throw that function away..
RBA : Try to increase the speed of your engine..
Pilot : I can't
RBA : Why? Don't say that you don't have an engine.
Pilot : No.the engine does not work properly coz it was second hand
RBA : Well this is critical for us
Pilot : What should I do?
RBA : Can you land about 20km ahead?
Pilot : I can't
Pilot : Coz our fuel is dried out
RBA : Well there is nothing I can help.there is only one hope..
RBA : Repeat after me..
Pilot : OK!
RBA : Ashha duanla ilaha illallah wa ash ha du anna muhamma darrassulullah

Arsenal 1-0 Bolton Wanderers, 10th January 2009.
1st half : Bolton’s attitude in the opening stages did nothing to suggest that would change. The visitors seemed happy to sit back and afford the home side enough space to set up camp just outside their area.It was a dangerous tactic and Van Persie would profit with a couple of early opportunities – a snap shot on the turn from Samir Nasri’s pacy pass and a header that stretched Jaaskelainen. The Frenchman then fired over himself and Van Persie had justifiable claims for a penalty in the 19th minute when a grounded Jlloyd Samuel appeared to nudge the ball with his arm.Arsenal were keeping up the pressure but not doing that much with it. You felt that although it was one-way traffic, the cars just were not moving very fast. Just to add to the surreal feeling, some of the floodlights failed midway through the half. Fortunately, there was enough daylight to carry on and the problem was rectified quickly.Adebayor’s right-wing cross was nodded out by Danny Shittu and Van Persie volleyed over from the edge of the area. Clichy even had a dig from distance.Bolton lost in-form striker Johan Elmander eight minutes before the break. Mustapha Riga came on but the change left Kevin Davies ploughing a lonely furrow up front. Still, at the break, Bolton were in possession of the point they had clearly come for. It was Arsenal’s job to break them down and they had got nowhere near to achieving it in the first 45 minutes.
2nd half : The home fans did their best to rouse the team at the start of the second half. They cheered optimistically for handball when Samuel chested down a left-wing cross but held their breath when Matt Taylor guided a header towards the far post. Fortunately Almunia held on.As the game passed the hour mark, Arsenal were losing their momentum. Therefore it was no surprise to see substitute Carlos Vela, the catalyst for change against Portsmouth, replace Diaby.Just before the change, Adebayor had seen a swivelling shot saved by Jaaskelainen. Just after it, he would spurn the chance of the match. Vela worked the ball in-field and Nasri threaded an expert ball to the far side of the area where the unmarked striker collected. He had time to steady himself but he took too long. By the time he got his shot off, Andy O’Brien had sprinted across. His outstretched leg stopped a near-certain goal.The chance served to spur on Arsenal. Bolton had enjoyed a small pocket of possession at the start of the half but that was long gone now. The home side were now hogging the ball and peppering the Bolton area with chances.In the 70th minute, Adebayor set up Van Persie on the edge of the box. The Dutchman shimmied past a couple of defenders and poked a shot past a static Jaaskelainen. Agonisingly, the bobbling ball bounced back off the post and Denilson’s follow-up was blocked.A couple of minutes later, Toure’s long-range effort forced a sprawling save from the Bolton keeper. Bendtner came off the bench and nearly powered home Nasri’s free-kick with his first touch. Unfortunately the ball nestled in Jaaskelainen’s midriff.The Dane was also denied eight minutes from time following a marauding run up the right wing by Toure.Bendtner would not be denied a third time and relief was palpable when he slid home Van Persie’s shot.But Bolton responded with their best chance of the game when Chris Basham set up Davies. Fortunately Almunia held on.A welcome whistle rang out a couple of minutes later.
Full Time : Arsenal won. Arsenal 1, Bolton Wanderers 0.

1st half : Robin Van Persie (the new captain) nodded home just after the break and completed the scoring five minutes from time.
2md half : David Gray put through his own net only for Karl Duguid to reply immediately to give the Pilgrims some hope of progression. However, Karl Duguid scored making the scoreboard 2-1, lastly, Robin Van Persie scored again just before full time.
