West Ham 2-2 Arsenal

The epic fifteen game winning streak came to an end today after a 2-2 draw at West Ham. It was a game that the Hammers could and should have wrapped up - they were much the better side in the first half, and any decent team would have hung on to a 2-0 lead. But West Ham, as we all know, aren't a decent team, and Thierry "Va Va Voom" Henry got one back, before Spunky saved perhaps the lamest penalty ever seen that could have made it 3-1.

In the end the mighty Arsenal's class showed through with an 88th minute equaliser from Sylvain Wiltord, a player who up until recently, couldn't hit a cow's arse with a banjo. Kolo Toure could have won it for us in the final minute, but hey, them's the breaks. Report here, and don't forget quality sweary Arsenal stuff at the fuckin' excellent Arseblog.

Points dropped all over the place today means that we're still third after a couple of games this season. Early doors, but Liverpool look the team to beat. And we've already done that once already this season, haven't we campers?

No news yet on Le Boss's pre-deadline goalkeeper signing, with a whole list of names linked to the club. I have a sneaking feeling it's "Blind" Johnny Lukic again. Or worse still, "Really Blind" Gordon Banks.
