Arsenal score their 1000th Premier League goal under Arsene Wenger

Alex Song has scored Arsenal’s 1000th Premier League goal under manager Arsene Wenger, during the Gunners’ 4-1 triumph over Bolton this afternoon.

The Cameroonian netted through a sublime finish 12 minutes from the end, lifting the ball over Hungarian rookie ‘keeper Bogdan from a tight angle.

Match Summary:

In the 24th minute, Jack Wilshere clipped a lovely ball over the top, Cesc Fabregas knocked it back across goal and Laurent Koscielny bundled the ball over the line.

Arsene Wenger’s men found their rhythm and should have killed the game off before half-time. Andrey Arshavin hit the side netting and Fabregas and Tomas Rosicky forced saves out of Adam Bogdan but Bolton stood firm and found themselves level right on half-time.

Chung-Yong Lee got round Manuel Almunia and chipped the ball across goal to Johan Elmander who nodded home at the far post.

Marouane Chamakh missed a chance one-on-one with Bogdan 12 minutes after the restart but made up for it a minute later, heading Fabregas’s cross into the net to make it 2-1 to the Gunners.

Bolton still looked dangerous but were reduced to 10 men when Gary Cahill was shown a straight red card for a foul on Chamakh in the 64th minute.

The aforementioned Alex Song scored Arsenal’s third 12 minutes from the end, lifting the ball over Bogdan from a tight angle, and it was four with seven minutes to go when substitute Carlos Vela fired into the net from another Fabregas pass.

    Great game today by arsenal! Bolton were as bad as expected, the fact that robinson was on the pitch says it all about the english game. Almunia was solid today, made some brillinat saves at 1-1. Hope Diaby has not broken his leg again, that could be the final stop for his career.

  4. Gunningooner says:

    Amazing composure, we didnt lose our cool and the experience was showed by every1 except the centre backs. Im happy Almunia has learnt how to catch, but he needs 2 talk to teammates more.

    And what was every1 going on about Rafael Van Der Vaart making tottenham better than Arsenal?

    Tottenham – West Brom 1-1

    Diaby injured. Bolton players are a bunch of di**s mush.

    Poor Zamora injured today too. Something needs to be done or does a player have to die before wreckless tackles carry a punishment.

    Get well soon Bobby. Come on the ARSENAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Great news.But out of the 1000 goals,how many were scored in seasons where arsenal won a trophy.any trophy?

    I jinxed arsh yesterday when I said he’d score a hat-trick, he deffinitely got the opportunity. He should’ve at least got that blatant penalty call, did u guys notice howmany disallowed pens we had, the one with eboe was 100% blatant to a blind man penalty. Anyone know whats wrong with diaby or how long he may be out?? we need him pretty bad for the upcoming marathon of games coming up. Bolton were being super dirty second half, fucking elbows davies gave kozzer a concusion, whichg prolly influenced their equalizer

    Worst referee EVER!!!
    and im not being biased either way… he made wrong decisions both ways.
    First off he didnt give chamakh a penalty, knight held and pushed him over, which resulted in bolton goin straight down the other end and scoring. The red card inceident was a farce, he missed a foul on Lee, and even when he missed that it was a yellow not a red, and EVEN SO, he should have played advantage to arshavin who was clean through. Robinsons challage on diaby was horrific and deserved a straight red so i dont feel bolton got hard done by due to the cahil sending off and this was another glaring cock up by the ref. Eboue, arshavin and i think there was one more all had valid penalty calls. Gibbs was very lucky not to get a second yellow. And since when is pushing someone in the back not a foul!?

  11. yuri says:

    it was supposed to be a easy game, but arshavin wanted some emotions…lost easy goals…
    nevertheless today was for those who were saying that cesc wasnt commited to the arsenal…
    what a b***t, cesc is the MAN !!!!!
    ps: squillaci must play along tommy V

  12. chris says:

    only saw the first half but was impressed with rosicky in particular and the build up..just not the finishing! guess i missed the wrong half.. had to go out

  13. damstar the bitch says:

    Bolton is sh*t and they deserve it! I was waiting for goal number 5 but hey they still got smacked and red card fully deserve by Bolton and their dirty tricks.
    Go Arsenal!

  14. Bootoomee says:

    Yeah, let’s chip in the “trophy” moan!

  15. fraster says:

    gr88888!!!!, and thanks to Song, we are winners today, world-class player!

  16. John says:

    Laurent koscielny was fantastic second half didnt put a foot wrong and completely dominated Kevin davies he outmuscled him, won every single ball in the air in the second half and stuck to him like glue.

    Was really impressed with both squillaci and koscielny considering they ahve played together and dont speak English i dont understand how almunia, koscielny, squillaci all communicated but we won and second halkf we looked better defensively

  17. john doe says:

    great day for the boys, coming from behind to win 4-1

  18. phylwenger says:

    Lovely chip by Song and he looked quite happy, Le Professeur would be happy to have that for his 1000th league goal too. All of Arsene’s new signings were impressive, save that one mistake by Koscielny, but he had a good game in general.

    Amazing millenium goal

  20. trev says:

    i see the media in england are talking up the red card tackle. usual silence with a studs up over the top tackle, wish diaby had ripped his head off. and who is the jock commentator on sattelite coverage…… anybody ?

  21. Boehm says:

    pleased! great to see gibbs in the starting line up . with him the left side its far more compact and creative, just of the match for me was song.

  22. gooner james says:

    im sorry i hate taking the piss outa refs they have a very hard job…. but stuart atwell i really dont think u r fit 2 referee the ghost goal was enough but after today u should b sent back to league 2.

    i cant remeber one decision that i thought well done ref good decision he fucked up for both teams.

  23. GunnerMacedonia says:

    is it me or song is getting better in the attacks? i`ve never seen him getting forward so much and those two balls, the way he recieved them … oh, just magical!

  24. poppy says:
