    Fair ratings. To my mind Bendtner links up better with RVP than Adebayor does.

    One reason we struggled at Ninian was lack of possession in the middle of the park. We lost all the 50-50s.

    Denilson and especially Song were fantastic in putting that right tonight.

    I love Eduardo, I want Vela out there forever, and you’re right that Nic was terrific. But Denilson and Song TOTALLY took away the game that Cardiff had displayed at home — and continuually rammed the ball back at them.

    Denilson and Song made the attack easy.

    Excellent job by both, higher than 6.5.

  7. Shivi C says:

    song and denilson where just as good as every1 else on the pitch.

    favouritism me thinks

  8. California Steve says:

    One more thing: I’m not sure that Adebayor will be in the frame when Arsene finally puts all the pieces of this exciting new team together.

    Let’s see what all Arshavin’s got in his bag, because I’m beginning to suspect Bendtner’s right that he deserves to play — certainly if we’re going to use one big striker.

    Eduardo has to be in the team — we were leading the league the last time he played before Monday night.

    RVP — obviously.

    Adebayor has tons to prove, especially at his wage, or we’ll move on without him and bring back Jay Simpson to back up the current strikers.

    i tot song was great, he won tackles, break up play and keep it simple though he did misplaced a few deserve at least a 7.5 and so does denilson..i take back what i said earlier that denilson can’t tackle, cos he won the ball in the centre half for our last goal..the whole team did really well even gibbs, bet you he’s gonna give clichy a run for his performance from the arsenal this season, it’s been a long while..and welcome back dudu, take a fighter to come back from that horrific tackle..

  10. fanner says:

    Hey guys, could you all imagine when Arsvin, Walcott , Rosicky, and our captain Fabregas, together with Nasir, Vela, how much attacking options we have next season? Oh we have Elboue too! LOL

  11. fanner says:

    By the way I am really happy for Eduardo. welcome back!

  12. -dean says:

    Song and Denilson were fine. Why did they rate lower than everyone else?

    Song has been very good in the last few games. It’s about time he got some recognition.

  13. charlie says:

    Eduardo performance will wipe the smirk off Ade’s face. Ade has been playing with the GBP 80K smirk this season. With Ash and Edu competing with him, its time for him to get serious or ship out. I hope he wakes up.
