Arsenal were looking uncomfortable with the hard pressing game of WBA. Also given the fact that the ref allowed a more physical game than is usual in the EPL, it cut down the ability for the gunners to play their preferred passing style.
No complaints about the refereeing though, it was same for both sides, but suited the game of WBA more. Was good to see Arsenal fight and scrap more than they have in the past.
Giroud had a couple of chances to win it, but Anelka's miss to put WBA 2-0 up with 30mins to go was a shocker.
The West Ham - Tottenham result was the surprise of the round. A couple of lucky goals for the Hammers, but the 3rd one was class. Spurs escaped with a last minute goal against Cardiff, seems AVB has a way to go to get his new signings all to gel together.
Don't forget Southampton, 2 points off the top in 4th place going into the international break. Who would have thought?
sat on the train and the bloke behind me talking about the spurs game said - i saw that coming. yeah of course
Moyes just does not cut it. Man utd had no central midfielders on the bench, and his choice of subs was dire. We finished the match with 5 defenders on the field. Why he subbed Nani for Giggs is beyond me, probably just for the sake of Giggs. Kagwawa still overlooked.

bottom three from Sunderland - they were even worse than usual this week, palace - like Holloway but they really lack quality, norwich - just not firing, stoke - not as good as previous years. any other views?
Think Southampton need to start putting away midtable sides like Moan Utd if we are to finish in the top six. Well, an away draw is ok but after dominating possession and shots on/off target I think this is 2 points dropped for Saints.
