None of the big teams have been able to put in a performance there. They're effective mullickers if I have to give them credit.

Still hate them and hope they go down as soon as possible.

Happy enough with the draw away at Stoke.

Stoke fans really are cretins of the highest order.

Very poor game. Can't be happy with a point away to a team of hoofers like Stoke. We have a few real cowardly players at Arsenal who are not willing to put their bodies on the line. I saw a few pull out of challenges in the second half (didn't see first half). We get very little from referees too as most seem to be pretty anti Arsenal. Hope Spurs drop points now.

Good stuff that Newcastle lost..

Should have made something more from those direct free kicks IMO.

I'll go one better, hope the club goes into liquidation and the club folds.

I wouldnt be flying into tackles against Stoke. They'd love that. It would be playing in to their hands. Whenever we try return the hard tackles, the referee's deem every one of thm as a foul. Apparently it's one rule for Stoke, and another rule for their opponents.

Aye, the ugly bully in the playground is all they are.

Maybe due to what happened to another teenager when we played up there.

The good: A point up there is no disaster. I thought we coped with their lineouts pretty well and played all the football. Then again, the opposition were not capable of playing football so thats not as positive as it might be.

The bad: Stoke in general. They have no place in the Premier League. A horrible, disgusting excuse of a football club that offer absolutely nothing to the game. I really cant say enough bad things about them, they are scum of the highest order. And thats not even taking their excuse of a fanbase into consideration. As one poster said, I dont think anyone would bat an eyelid if they did fold and go out of business. I read during the week they average 2 shots on goal a game and only 28% possession per game. Both the lowest in the league. I cannot wait for the day they get relegated and we dont have to worry about their brand of "football" any more. Please, please can it be next season.
