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.

“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.”
