Arsenal 7-1 Blackburn

Arsenal’s past, present and future all scored as an impressive Gunners side demolished 10-man Blackburn 7-1 at Emirates Stadium.

Arsene Wenger’s men scored early on through Robin van Persie’s tap-in, before Morten Gamst Pederson struck a sumptious free-kick to equalise.

However, two goals in two minutes from van Persie and highly-rated youngster Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain put Arsenal back in front where shortly after Rovers defender Gael Givet received a red card.

Second half strikes from Mikel Arteta, Oxlade-Chamberlain, van Persie made it 6-1, before Arsenal legend Thierry Henry scored a trademark goal to complete a terrific Gunners performance.

    Fantastic result. Arsene’s summer signings shine again, and also one of his first signings – Thierry Henry.

    Hopefully this win acts as a catalyst for the rest of the season. Arteta, AOC and RVP brilliant as usual. Good to see a Walcott with an end product turn up today

    Just what the club needed after a difficult start to the year. And there’s no doubting Ox’s potential now after that display.

    Great win and great that there were 20,000 empty seats.That is a warning to Kroenke and Gazidis.

    And the question needs to be asked is why hasnt the Ox started more games this season.Gervinho is going to have a fight to get back into the team

    The Ox is the other Gem from Wenger joining Fabregas, Wilshere, Anelka and Szchesny.

    It was such a superb performance. The Ox, Theo, RVP, Mikel Arteta name them …..all were fantastic. It was a great move for Wenger to start Rocisky instead of Ramsey. Rocisky is always effective and holds the ball much more and he also adds pace to our game. Kudos to all Arsenal players not forgeting King Henry. We kept the faith and now the Fourth or third sport is ours for the taking. We also have a great chance to win the FA Cup…Go Gooners!!!!

    As a gooner just moved to new York – got to give a big shout out to the haight street gooners in San Francisco with whom I enjoyed this match. Great bunch of fans who know their sht and absolute pleasure to watch the frame with. And a new chant for ox- chamb was created:,(to the tune of I am the walrus) “he is the ox-man, he is the ox-man, WE ARE THE GOONERS! Goo-goo-ga-chooo…

    It was the third game in a week and if Arsenal can perform like this in the third game when all the normal excuses about tired legs, lethargic, playing with hand brake on etc could be floated around, it raises serious questions about how our players are motivated? Why we didn’t play like this in earlier games against Bolton, Swansea, ManU, Fulham? We can say our fullbacks weren’t there or anything but Bolton’s game saw Sagna and Vermaelen as full backs. I would love to know what instructions Wenger passes on to our players about each individual game?
