The Horse Gallops

It's taken its time coming (nearly three years), but Oleg Luzhny's first decent performance in an Arsenal shirt went a fair way to ensuring three points for the Gunners at FIlbert Street last night. It was a night for firsts, ‘The Horse’ — as the Ukranian is affectionately known — whipped in a dangerous looking cross in the 32nd minute for Giovanni Van Bronkorst to top an otherwise unspectacular performace with his first Arsenal goal. It surely has to be the first time Leicester have ended up with ten men on the pitch not through a fault of Robbie Savage.

So United are top by a point, Arsenal are second with a game in hand, Newcastle also have one in hand and could overtake United and Leeds could level with their extra fixture. Who said the PRemiership was ging to get boring.

The cup's are throwing up a bit of excitement too, you have to wonder what is going through referee Mark Halsey's mind this morning — as he realises he sent off the wrong player and profoundly affected a volatile cup semi-final (even if it is only the Worthlesston Cup.) You've got to be looking forward to this Sunday's FA Cup tie though. Two title contenders both a bit out of form, to be honest anything could happen.

If you need a reason to get excited you could always open an account with Sporting Odds (damn that was a slick link.) Seriously though, promotional rubbish aside, they're running a great offer for anyone who registers and puts a £5 bet on the game — if a penalty is awarded for either side they'll give you £20. If a penalty is missed they'll give you another £10. On top of that, they'll give you a free £10 bet on first goalscorer. You can't argue with that can you? Check out the betting page for more information.
