It's the same tackle he did against QPR, lunging in from afar.  You can debate the merits of it being a red all you want, but you have to be an absolute moron to do it again, 12 minutes into your comeback game.  Completely inexcusable, and that should hopefully be that for his Fulham career.

Berba should have scored then too, or at least made it more of a difficult save.

No it isn't. The QPR tackle wasn't a red, he pulled out of the tackle and studs were not showing.

On the positive side, Kaca looks very sharp so far!

It's amazing what a little pace on the wings will do to open up space in the middle!

I think we are playing quite well tbh. we are holding possession in good areas of the pitch, we just look very outnumbered when they break with pace (obviously we will with 10 men). emaneulson and kaca are looking sharp, giving monreal and sagna alot of trouble

Considering Sidwell may well have cocked this up for us, we are looking good, everyone putting in a real effort out there. Just depends how long we can last

Ruiz obviously have no clue how to mark a player on a set piece :(

It was so obvious that that was going to go in, at that time of the game, with half time near.

Why on earth was Ruiz given the task to mark Kosielny? Madness.  That said you won't see a more feeble attempt to defend a set piece by a player than that.

so, if Arse-nil beat us, and Liverpool beat us at home, and we lose on the road... we might get drawn again into relegation battle.  The ref sucks... all calls Arsenal way.  No way a red card.

Played well until the set piece. But I would take Berbatov off and put on Rodders just to give him a run and stretch Arsenal if we can.

Not sure if the Enoh foul was a foul that lead to the goal. But all in all a spirited reaction for Fulham.

Very very disappointing. But if we keep at it we may score ourselves.

Mate, that was such a red, he might as well have been wearing a sign saying please eject me now.

Madness. When you have 10 men you have to keep the ball, who is better at keeping the ball in our squad than Berba? Rodders will give the ball away at every opportunity with his donkey touch.

Sidwell is an IDIOT. 2 foot challenge. Emanuelsson and Kaca are the key now to get something out from the game.

There is no way on earth that Arsenal deserve to be in the lead..If there's justice we'll get at least 1 point from this game..
