Off-topic: Arsenal 3 Newcastle 0 - Same score, better result

Arsenal

It was bound to happen. No, not another Adebayor goal. At his rate, that's bound to happen almost regardless of whether he steps onto the pitch. No, this time it was Fabregas who surprised by returning to the score line for the first time since November. I haven't been able to watch the game yet but listened to the last 20 minutes while driving down Highway 101 in Silicon Valley, my trustee broadband card working overtime to keep streaming Arsenal TV for me.

Blessed technology.

Despite Fabregas' return as a scorer, the match really belonged to Flamini.

Adebayor heads it home

It was he who set up Adebayor's header into the net, and it was he who drilled an absolute screamer into the net from 25 yards. Flamini, who I reviled and despised last season, has become Arsenal's secret weapon.

This puts Arsenal top of the Premiership, though Manchester United can reclaim the top spot tomorrow when it plays Portsmouth at Old Trafford tomorrow. If only Chelsea and ManU can lose tomorrow, I shall be a very happy man.
