Arsenal Hit Blackburn For Seven : The Player Ratings.

Needing 3points, Arsenal set out aiming to get it emphatically against a Blackburn squad which they average 3 goals against them when at home. Ramsey and Sagna made way for Rosicky & Coquelin in the only changes.

It took all of 2mins for Arsenal to open the scoring as Walcott took a pass from Coquelin and fed RVP who had the easiest of tap ins for his 20th goal of the season. From then on, it rained goals with Van Persie bagging 3 and Walcott providing 3 assists. Below are the player ratings.

Hardly ever busy when we play like this but he should have kept out Pedersen’s freekick even though it was a great strike.

Koscielny 7
Conceded the freekick that led to their equalizer and picked up a booking, other than that, an absolute rock at the back. Went off for Sagna later.

Vermaelen 7
Verminator did his job at the back even though he’s still playing out of position. Ok game.

The german had more offensive work than defensive to do as he wasn’t troubled by Burn’s lone striker. Still awaiting his first goal.

Arsenal’s utility man, started in place of Sagna and had a hand in 2 goals as he assisted van persie’s 3rd. Solid game from him

3 goals against Blackburn alone this season(2 for arsenal 1 for everton), he kept things moving in the middle with Song.

One of the 3 men of the match in this game, no direct assist but his passes were a beauty, he kept things moving and he tackled well. Songinho unleashed

Battling display, effective, passed and defended well, at his age proved to be a better replacement for Ramsey.

Oh my!!! Is this the real Theo Walcott? I guess he wants that new contract bad and on this performance, he might get it, 3 assists this noon and an absolute beast. The 3rd assist was Messi-esque.

I tweeted when the game kicked off that he would get his first league goal and well he did more than that. He got 2. Deservedly. Brilliant kid, attacked like an Ox and defended well. Bright future.

Van Persie10
Amazeballs. Superhuman. Saint Van Persie. Oba(King in Yoruba), legend, Vantastic, Glorious, Beautiful. *stops to catch breath*. Hattrick and 2 assists. That says it all.


Benayoun 5

Henry 6:
Goal off the bench, what more do you want?

Sagna 5

MAN OF THE MATCH : Should be men of the match as there were 3 contenders. Walcott, RVP & Song

Credit must go to Arsene wenger if I must say for dropping Ramsey to the bench. We were beginning to wonder if it would ever happen. I asked for 3 points before the game and the lads duly delivered. Great game. Have your say in the comments section.

  1. Rosicky was UNBELIEVABLY unlucky…worked hard (like ramsey), got into great areas (like Ramsey) but no one passed to him…sad as always…

    Wenger MUST stick to this team..Ramsey must earn his place back.

  2. G8 game for the team and the fans.,midfield, backline and attack, we were simply superb…i hope walcot starts to impress like he did tday bt it is clear the OX is a far more better player than walcot and even gervinho…am happy ramsey was benched, i really hope he stays there for a while so rosicky wld do the magic. Up gunners!

  3. I wouldn’t give Walcott a 9 but more like a 7. He did improve from his previous games… 2 assist for RVP and all thru the game, he was brilliant running into space – and constanstly catching the Rovers left back. However, his finishing still needs a whole lot of improvement. I would also rate the Ox higher than Walcott and give him a solid 8.

  4. Super super game from the gunners.wenger shuld just carry on witout ramsey for the remaining matches of the season

  5. Am really suprised, RAMSEY is slow, weak and has no creativity at all.,rosicky clearly has more attributes compared even at 30, hes faster, stronger, intelligent, skillfull and has that creativity..he even have defensive qualities…rosicky is d man to b there parmanently and let ramsey cme frm the bencq like he is suppose to..

  6. Completely agree with scarecrow! Stick to this current team and allow Ramsey earn his place back into the team. Its common sense – when you’re challenged for your position, you’ll step your game up but when you feel you’re irreplaceable – you’ll continue to give lackadaisical performances

  7. to drop ramsey was the perfect idea ..hope to see this team play against ac milan.

  8. It was a cool game,very much happy for AOC nd rosicky,dey showed why they should be in the first team..Nice play out there from the lads,kept d momentum from start to finish..

  9. look at Arteta and Song when they play with a decent 3rd midfileder!!! Rosicky you beauty!!!

  10. rosicky is mymen i realy hop he will be good attack

  11. happy to be back to winning wayz…gr8 team effrt all total..
    Happy to see rosicky stt..
    And has few have said let ramsey earn his place back..rosicky was far better..unlcky not to be on the scoresheet..

  12. as for ramsy you have to improve. thacks god for wenger to drop… him.

  13. fa cup is ours.i got a dream but in one condition, wirhout ramsey

  14. Rosicky is fantastic,arteta,song should be use in midfield.vanentor,mert,koc,sag or coquine are ok.walcot,ox and RVP world class.ramsey should fight for his place

  15. Missed the game.. but i saw a full highlight. Impressive. Good to see the OX get more game time and making em count. Walcott looked good, but its walcott; hot and cold. I hope he maintains this “Mental” form tho. As for Ramsey..*Sighs*….He isnt there yet, he is a good player, but not the player Arsenals Creativity should rest upon. Happy the Boss put him on the bench. As for the rest of the team.. they did well.. RVP always…no need saying more about that true Hero.
