Arsenal slip-up at NewCastle, match ends in a 1-1 stalemate!!

Arsenal missed the chance to extend it's lead at the top of Barclay's Premier League to 6 points as they dropped two points at Newcastle. A second half equalizer by Steven Taylor canceled Adebayor's early strike. That means Arsenal's lead at the top now is of 4 points. Your views!! Cheers! Ram

To be honest when Arsenal scored through striker Emmanuele Adebayor just a few minutes after the kick off, I thought the Gunners will easily cruised to another victory and condemned the trouble Newcastle to defeat. Turn out I was gravely mistaken. Newcastle managed to fight back and scored a great equaliser via Steven Taylor. They put Arsenal under tremendous pressure especially in the second half and unlucky not to win via David Rozehnal towards the end of the game. If Newcastle could turn out this kind of performance week in week out, I'm sure they will not be staying in their current position for so long. Congratulations to both teams for the great display

Yes I was gutted but knew that if Newscastle lost, Allardyce's job was on the line so I thought a draw would be the possible result, I think our confidence has been knockd a little by the defeat to Sevilla last week. I'm sure we'll win the Premiership still though...... Thierry Who??

I agree that the Sevilla game might have taken something out of the boys. But, I thought they bounced back well against Aston Villa. But, again it was expected that Newcastle would have turned up a good performance sooner or later. The plus point is that Arsenal did not lose the game!! Cheers! Ram
