    Surely only one can go down? Reading and QPR are gone for my money.

    FA Cup and what?

    Kieran Gibbs with a real fight on his hands now, as I should have thought Monreal will be automatic first choice for the foreseeable future.

    Edit: In fact, out the Premiership games he's played since joining, Arsenal have won 6 out of 7, and conceded 4 goals. Conversely, in the 7 games prior to him signing, Arsenal won 2, and conceded 11.

    I'm not trying to say he alone is responsible for the turnaround, but I think it's more than coincidence that Arsenal improved upon his signing.
    Panic signing though, remember.

    Not convinced it was a panic buy at all tbh.

    Anyway, well done Wigan. Poor showing, but I imagine they'll be thrilled with the result. Basically have knocked QPR well out of the running, and are now level on points with free-falling Sunderland with a game in hand.

    QPR done now, were actually in with half a chance if they had hung on.

    Given the circumstances it probably is, yes. Thrilled probably wasn't the most appropriate word to use, but I imagine they'll be satisfied. For me I think this was really a must not lose game, rather than a must win game. If they had lost it would have been a really disastrous result. The draw still leaves them with a lot of work to do, particularly as they've got some dodgy fixtures coming up in the next few weeks, but they can now more or less stop worrying about being caught by QPR. Their matches away at West Ham and at home to Spurs are really crucial now though (not counting their next game away at City, as I'd be surprised if they got anything from that), if they can get 4 points from those two games I'd back them to get enough from their remaining games to stay up.

    What a goal by Remy but you have to laugh at QPR. Shot themselves in the foot again. Will anybody other than their 16,000 fans care they are going down?

    I can think of plenty of people who will be delighted, if that counts.

    How the hell did the referee not give that penalty for West Ham?

    Tomkins gets the ball, Enrique kicks him. It was one of the most blatantly obvious penalties you'll see.

    We sing "When you sit in Row Z, and the ball hits your head: That's Zamoraaaaa" but yeah, general idea is the same, haha.

    Went to bed instead of staying up for the Prem, seems like a good decision on my behalf.

    You mean, except for the Gerrard one in the same game.

    Does anyone know if they're going to do a minutes silence tonight? I think it would be inadvisable at football matches TBH.
