OCTOBER - Same old, same old

October looked as if it would be the toughest month so far for the Gunners. The month included home clashes against Lille, Manchester United and Liverpool.

1.10.11 - - Arsenal 5-0 Liverpool - South beats North

Premier Division

Thomas Vermaelen (pen) 30'
Aly Cissohko 36'
Glenn Johnson 52'
Nicolas Otamendi 61'
Edinson Cavani 64'
Jamie Carragher 88'

Thomas Vermaelen

No-one expected that. Arsenal made Liverpool look like a Sunday League team (Osset ALbion, ask Blue is the Colour). Vermaelen lead by the front, scoring a penalty. No one knows why he took it though!

15.10.11 - - Q.P.R 0-2 Arsenal - The Gunners triumph in a London Derby

Premier Division

Douglas Costa 8'
Dede 58'


19.10.11 - - Arsenal 2-1 Lille - Yet Again the English are Better than the Fremch

Champions Cup


The Gunners showed good mental strength in this game. Hazard gave Lille the lead early on but the players were having no of it, changing the game in ten minutes. Dede had another great game.

22.10.11 - - Arsenal 4-1 - Manchester United - The Red Devils weren't too scary

Premier Division


This was very unexpected. Manchester United didn't show up. The red card did not help them though. Cavani played an absolute blinder for the Gunners. He was amazing, even better than he had been all season, which is very hard.

26.10.11 - - Arsenal 8-0 Crawley - The difference was clear

League Cup 4th Round

Fernando Llorente 10', (pen) 27', 66'
Alex Oxlade-Chamerlain 35'
Theo Walcott 51', 56' 90+1'

Fernando Llorente

29.10.11 - Arsenal Draw West Ham in the League Cup Quarter Final Draw

The Gunners were given a bit of luck, drawing Championship side West Ham

Norwich 2-3 Arsenal - Arsenal hang on after going 3-0 up

Premier Division

Edinson Cavani 33'
Fernando 44', 56'

Fernando Llorente

The Gunners went 3-0 up, only to concede 2 goals in the last 20 minutes. They managed to hang on though. This win gave Keeling his 2nd perfect month in 3. Life at the Emirates is looking rather good at the moment...
