1. Arsenal 2-1 Barcelona

Possibly the finest day as a Gooner. Arsenal went behind to a David Villa goal before bouncing back with a sublime van Persie finish and a sweeping team move finished off by Arsharvin. Arsenal could be well and truly proud of beating Barca at their own game. A night very few Gooners will ever forget.

2. Arsenal 3-1 Chelsea

1. Arsenal 2-3 West Brom

Arsenal had an immaculate home record. They didnt lose many games at home. At least until this one. Arsenal forgot to play and as a result found themselves 3-0. This was also down to the pure hilarity of Almunia's goalkeeping. Nasri singlehandedly tried to get the Gunners back into the game but it was too little too late! The big problem with this game was that the previous strength of the Arsenal a home had disappeared.

2. Arsenal 2-3 Tottenham

As we bear down an our impending clash with Man City at Eastlands on Sunday, we were gifted with the perfect scene just prior to this.
On Tuesday night the mighty gunners played the unstoppable Shakhtar Donetsk and in so doing this would come up against the former Gunner Eduardo Da Silva.

Be careful what you wish for!

I have seen people crying for Arsene Wengers head. While I understand the frustration, I am not a believer in the same. The biggest case in point is Liverpool. Fans were crying for Benitez head after a shambolic season. Rafa had a net transfer loss which was highly significant and they finished 7th.
