Posted: January 12, 2007 in Arsenal

Aliadiere 27
Fowler 33
Baptista 40
Song 45
Baptista 45
Baptista 60
Gerrard 68
Hyppia 80
Baptista 84

What an unbelievable scoreline. Nothing worth reviewing about which other sites have not touched upon. The Beast was unleashed today contributing four goals.
The goals:

1)Nice long pass by Toure which Ali took brilliantly to score
2)After a foul by Song, Aurelio took a freekick which was palmed away by Almunia but a predatory strike by Fowler brought the scores level
3)Brilliant free kick from Baptista but Dudek could have done better other than staying rooted to the spot
4)A goal by Song which he was only partly aware of as it came of the shoulder from a Cesc pass
5)A cut back Ali found Baptista free to drill it in from 20 yards
6)Another cross by Ali found Baptista to tap in
7)Screamer by Gerrard to fan the Liverpool flames
8)Header by Hyppia to bring pressure to Arsenal
9)Another goal by the Beast following a Ali pass

Oh, and the Beast missed a penalty to cap it off. Nice effort from our young ‘uns and a pat on the back for Ali after recent criticims about him. Now, can someone please buy him? Diaby also came on for Theo on the 64th minute. Nice.
On another note : I don’t like Song and today’s performance did not convince me otherwise. Sure, it seems like I am whining over one cent when I have a million ringgit but this things must be said. He looked overconfident and gave away a stupid foul. THe bad day for Liverpool was compounded by injuries to Mark Gonzalez (Out for 3 weeks) and his replacement Garcia (Out for whole season). Onwards, boys.
