Gunner news : Arsenal 1-0 Stoke

Early Squillaci Header Takes Gunners Within A Point Of Leaders Manchester United

Sebastien Squillaci scored the only goal of the game as Arsenal closed the gap at the top of the Premier League to one point as they beat Stoke 1-0 at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal got out of the traps quickest and could have been one up within the first minute when Jack Wilshere ran at the Stoke defence, before laying the ball off to Cesc Fabregas who played a wonderful reverse pass for Theo Walcott, but the his effort cracked the inside of the post and rebounded safely to Asmir Begovic.

Walcott was through again moments later after Nicklas Bendtner slid a neat pass between the Stoke defence, but Robert Huth and Danny Pugh combined to deny the England man getting a clear strike on goal.

The Gunners' early pressure paid off as they took the lead in the eighth minute through Squillaci, who headed home after Wilshere’s corner was knocked back into the six yard-box by Bendtner, whose harassing of Huth forced a corner for the home side.

Arsenal were then forced to substitute Fabregas, with the Spaniard appearing to tweak a muscle, and was duly replaced by Andrei Arshavin with Arsene Wenger refusing to take any chances ahead of the League Cup final, and trip to Barcelona on the horizon.

The Potters finally got into the game when John Carew forced a brilliant save from Wojciech Szczesny, who parried the Norwegian’s powerful half-volley away from goal after the striker latched onto Jon Walters’ knockdown.

Minutes before the break the Gunners had the chance to double their lead with a free-kick just outside the area however Samir Nasri wasted the opportunity by blasting wide of Begovic’s goal.

Stoke came out in the second half the livelier and could have got back into the game through Ryan Shawcross, whose goalbound header was deflected wide after he escaped his marker to latch onto Jermaine Pennant’s cross.

The visitors threatened again minutes later from a trademark Rory Delap throw-in which Huth could have done better with as he rose above the Arsenal defence, but his header sailed harmlessly over the bar. Nonetheless, the Potters were coming more and more into the game.

Arsenal tried to respond to the Potters' pressure and Wilshere had a decent effort at goal as he tested the handling ability of Begovic but the Bosnian was equal to it.

Minutes later Walcott missed a glorious chance to make the Gunners lead more comfortable as he sliced his shot wide after great work from Arshavin who created the opening.

The home side suffered another injury blow in the 70th minute when Walcott fell to the ground after a challenge from Dean Whitehead. The England winger had to be stretchered off after appearing to turn his ankle in the fall.

This did not deter the Gunners from attacking Stoke however, as they looked to kill the game off, and Bendtner could have put the game beyond doubt had he kept his header down from Wilshere’s corner after beating Begovic to the ball.

Former Arsenal man Pennant then struck a rasping free-kick as the visitors went close to getting an equaliser for Potters in the last minute of normal time, but saw his effort creep just wide of the post, but Stoke were continuing to threaten the home side’s net.

The visitors continued to pile the pressure on the hosts but Wenger’s side defended resolutely, and held out to claim a vital three points to close the gap on leaders Manchester United.

Coconut Crab - found in the Australian Pacific Region

How would you like to find this on the side of your trash can!!!!!!! (or anywhere!!!!) --. Coconut Crab (Birgus latro) is the largest terrestrial arthropod in the world. It is known for its ability to crack coconuts with its strong pincers in order to eat the contents. It is sometimes called the robber crab because some coconut crabs are rumored to steal shiny items such as pots and silverware from houses and tents The second photo gives you a good idea of how large these crabs are - a coconut crab is seeking food from a black trashcan.

The coconut crab is a large edible land crab related to the hermit crab, and are found in the tropical Indian and Pacific Oceans .They eat coconuts for a living!

The coconut crab is the world's largest terrestial arthropod and is known for its ability to crack coconuts with its pincers.

They can weigh up to 4kg (Some reports claim up to 17kg) and leg span of 1m. It is eaten by the Pacific islanders and is

considered a delicacy with a taste similar to lobster and crabmeat. A coconut crab will attack if it is threatened. How would

you like to be on an island and come across a crab that is this big with a pair of large pincers strong enough to open coconuts!

They can climb trees too, but they only eat coconuts that have already fallen to the ground. Coconut crab meat has been

considered a local delicacy

Two late goals from Robin Van Persie and Andrey Arshavin inspired a memorable comeback for Arsenal as the English side defeated favourites Barcelona 2-1 to take a slender lead to Camp Nou.

David Villa opened the scoring on 26 minutes but the Gunners equalised through Robin Van Persie with 12 minutes to go. Arsenal were in dreamland on 83 minutes when Andrey Arshavin scored the goal that gives Arsene Wenger's men something to hold onto in the return fixture in three weeks time.

Arsenal had the first glimpse of goal on six minutes when Theo Walcott trickery saw the winger lay the ball off to Cesc Fabregas whose chipped pass fell to Robin Van Persie six-yards from the goal. The Dutchman smashed a powerful effort at goal but Valdes repelled the shot impressively.

Barcelona took a while to get into the game but on 15 minutes created the best chance of the game so far. David Villa's precise through ball bypassed both Arsenal centre-backs to leave Lionel Messi one-on-one with Wojciech Szczesny. The Argentinian looked odds on to score his seventh Champions League goal of the season but his six-yard chipped effort landed the wrong side of the post.

The hosts were back on the attack in the 25th minute when the lively Walcott ran 40-yards with the ball before sliding a pass to Fabregas on the right side of the area. The former Barcelona man clipped the ball in the direction of Van Persie but Eric Abidal's last-ditch header thwarted the striker from heading into an empty net.

However it was the Catalan who scored the opener and a vital away goal a minute later. Iniesta's precise pass found Villa with Gael Clichy playing the deadly striker onside who made no mistake in slotting the ball past Szczesny for his third Champions League goal this season.

The La Liga leaders were on the prowl again on 28 minutes and came very close to adding a deadly second. Villa showed quick feet on the right before delivering a low ball into the six-yard box. Pedro was on cue to flick an improvised backheel goalwards but Szczesny did superb to tip the ball around the post for a corner.

The game continued to be played at the predicted frenetic pace and Arsene Wenger's men could have equalised a minute later. Jack Wilshere's wonderful pass found Van Persie who uncharacteristically smashed the ball high and wide into the crowd when it looked easier to test Valdes.

Barcelona had the ball in the back of the net for a second time on 38 minutes but an offside flag saw the goal ruled out. Messi's incise through ball fell to the feet of Pedro who could not beat Szczesny from 12 yards out. Messi was on hand to head the rebound into an empty net but the lineman ruled the goal out despite replays showing it to be a tight decision.

Arsenal started the second half in the lively manner they began the first and tested Valdes on 48 minutes. Wilshere played a nice one-two with Fabregas before seeing his powerful 25-yard effort comfortably saved by Valdes.

The Gunners continued to press for an equaliser and on 62 minutes came close when Samir Nasri's near-post ball looked to have found Van Persie. However a last-ditch challenge by Pique saw the ball put behind for a corner.

Barcelona continued to look dangerous on the break and should have scored a second on 67 minutes. Iniesta slid an excellent through ball to Messi yet the world player of the year could only find the side-netting from close range, a disappointing miss from the player who has been so sensational this season.

The home side needed a moment of inspiration and on 79 minutes Van Persie delivered a moment of magic. Clichy clipped in a wonderful ball to the 27-year-old striker. The angle looked too tight yet Van Persie lashed a powerful shot past Valdes and into the far corner.

Arsenal completed the turnaround on 83 minutes with supersub Andrey Arshavin scoring a well-worked second. Nasri's superb run was found by Fabregas and with Barcelona short in numbers at the back the French winger was able to cut the ball back to Arshavin who drilled the ball past the helpless Valdes.

It could have been three on 86 minutes when Wilshere picked out substitute Nicklas Bendtner who after some decent footwork forced a low stop out of the Barcelona 'keeper.

The two sides meet again in three weeks time at Camp Nou where Barcelona will be looking to overcome the one goal deficit.

Gunner news : Arsenal 2-0 Wolves

Robin Van Persie Continues Fine Form With Double As Gunners Keep Pace At The Top

Robin Van Persie's brace helped Arsenal to a 2-0 win over Wolves and ensured Arsene Wenger's side kept pace with Manchester United at the top of the Premier League.

The Dutchman scored goals in either half as the Gunners warmed up for their Champions League clash with Barcelona in perfect style.

Wolves came to the Emirates with the reputation of giant killers in the Premier League but it was the home side who looked like they meant business. Jack Wilshere, fresh from his first England start against Denmark in midweek, started things off as he twisted and turned his way through the Wolves defence only to be brought down by Richard Stearman right on the edge of the box. Van Persie stood over the resultant free-kick but his effort was way off target.

But the home side looked in the mood and dominated from start to finish, keeping the ball away from Mick McCarthy's side and getting it forward at pace with every opportunity.

When Wolves did eventually get hold of possession they showed what they could do with the ball on the deck. A lovely passing move between Kevin Doyle, Adam Hammill and Nenad Milijas ended with the latter winning a corner. The visitors looked to test the Gunners' defence at set pieces and but for a vital header from Laurent Koscielny they could have been on level terms.

However, it was Arsenal who broke the deadlock after 16 minutes after a delicate chipped cross from Cesc Fabregas found Robin Van Persie unmarked on the penalty spot. The Dutch striker connected with a sweet volley with his right foot which flew past the despairing Wayne Hennessey for his ninth goal in his last seven league matches.

Arsenal did not want to stop their though and they would have increased their lead had it not been for the impressive Hennessey.

Andrey Arshavin found in space on the left hand side and in a complete mismatch with Ronald Zubar, won the ball in the penalty area, cutting the ball back to Theo Walcott, who thought he had made it two only for Hennessey to claw the ball away. The danger was not over for Wolves though as the rebound found its way to Fabregas but his goalbound strike was cleared off the line by Stearman.

Next it was Arshavin's turn to be denied by Hennessey. The Russian forward, who once again showed signs of finding his form, was put through on goal by Walcott but his shot was beaten away by the Wolves keeper's outstretched hand.

Wave after wave of attack was bearing down on the visitor's goal and once again Arshavin was the man causing the problems. The little forward danced past Zubar and into the penalty area, appearing to be tugged by the full-back on the way through. Referee Chris Foy waved play on despite the pleas from the Emirates crowd.

At half-time the game should have been dead and buried for the Gunners and they should have been looking forward to a Champions League tie with Barcelona with three points in the bag.

But with the teams only separated by a goal at half-time and the memories of Arsenal's second-half capitulation against Newcastle fresh in the mind, there was a feeling Wolves were still in the game.

Arsenal started the second-half just as they had finished the first. Wilshere terrorised Wolves with another direct run into the box and teed up Walcott, but the England winger fired his shot wide of the near post.

There were nervous moments for Arsenal and Wenger when Zubar caught Van Persie across the knee with a reckless high challenge. The full-back was lucky to avoid a straight red but did not even receive a caution.

The Gunners hitman was down for a long time but managed to pick himself up and minutes later made the game safe.

In the 56 minute Fabregas clipped a beautiful pass releasing Walcott down the right. The England winger, bearing down on goal, shifted the ball onto Van Persie who fired past Hennessey to score his second.

With 20 minutes to go Arsenal turned their attention to Wednesday night's encounter with Barcelona and Wenger started ringing the changes.

Van Persie was given a well deserved rest and was replaced by Marouane Chamakh, while the much improved Arshavin was brought off for Nicklas Bendtner.

Jack Wilshere was also afforded a rest after a excellent performance following his England display.

Wolves made one final role of the dice by bringing on forwards Sylvain Ebanks-Blake and Steven Fletcher, but neither could muster anything in front of goal for the for the visitors, who did not test Wojciech Szczesny all afternoon.

The Gunners threatened to finish with three after Fabregas released Walcott again. This time the former Southampton trainee cut back inside and bent in a shot from the left with his right foot, but the ball went agonisingly wide.

Walcott and Fabregas could have added goals in the closing stages but Hennessey stood firm again.

But the Gunners will be happy with their afternoon's work and will not face many easier games than this.
