Arsenal 3–1 Celtic. And yeah, he dove …

I am sure that Eduardo dove for his penalty (and that was wrong of him. Bad Eduardo!) but I disagree that that was the turning point in the match. For it to be called a turning point the match needed to, well … turn. But from what I saw Arsenal had a pretty tight hold on the match all the way from beginning to end. Yeah sure it feels a bit dirty that he took a dive but it did not change what Celtic had to do to win the game at that point: score 3 goals. The fact that they never threatened to do that (and that we scored twice afterwards) makes the point moot.

What really struck me about the game last night was how it seemed to light up when Arshavin was subbed in. More of that please! Here's to a good weekend.
