Fenerbahce 2 – 5 Arsenal highlights – A European night to remember

Last night Arsenal beat Fenerbahce in style and with class. The game was exciting and had plenty of goals. Wenger had wanted to silence the notorious Turkish fans, and I think we did – 3-1 up after 22 minutes!

There were some notable highlights for us, Diaby came back and looked very, very impressive – he got a good goal. Nasri continued to look good, Ramsey scored after coming on very late in the game, and Adebayor got a goal. Also Song, playing at CB, scored a lovely goal in the second half. Oh, and Walcott got a great goal.

Wenger told the press:

“We had a young team and I’m proud we came in and tried to dictate the game in a heated atmosphere,”

He was particuarly impressed by Ramsey – who looked so relaxed in such a big game.

Almunia led the team well and denied the Fenerbahce strikers all night – one of his best games for us I think. Only problem was the defence looked a little weak. Maybe a SIlvestre – Djourou partnership would be a little more stable.

Silvestre spoke after the game:

“It was not easy to come here with a good atmosphere against us and I think we coped not too bad with the experienced players we played against.

“It was a good game to improve and learn from. Hopefully we can get some consistency.”

  1. Nice point about Ramsey. Noone has really mentioned his performance (myself included) but he looked superb after coming on. Granted it was an easy(ish) situation to arrive into but he got stuck into tackles and grabbed a great goal. There’s not much more you can ask for from a 17-year-old substitute!

  2. I know, I thought the same mate, Ramsey looks sublime – he is only 17 but he fitted right in. There are many players – e.g. Walcott who have potential and are great players – but their early games were not as impressive as this.
    Ramsey looks mature beyond his years!
