Email from Adam Klein Chowder: “As I mentioned the Arsenal vs Brighton match is not on TV, I feel compelled to point out that – and many other matches besides that! – available for free on the FA player. There is commentary and all that too, plus other fun features in the half to offer more players from the league.

Absolutely right. I got it. Thanks adam.

Goal! Nottingham Forest 1-0 Fulham (Uni 11)

Nigeria international results for tough trees in city land! Free kick header.

What happens in Villa Park-I hear you crying. Not much. It’s 0-0 after 10 minutes.

Nottingham Forestwho are desperate to win, started by passing a bit of confidence against Fulham.

There is another chance for Arsenal at Meadow Park, but it is still 1-0. It will be a long night for the Brighton defenders after Kohlberg was sent off early.

Blackstenius Topped the crossbar with a shot from the edge of the penalty area! It’s all about Arsenal, unless you count this previous chance for Terland.

But wait! Brighton and Tyrland counter, on his debut, shot a long shot from my vertical.

In Villa Park, there was a minute’s silence, and now the audience is applauding…and now we have a translation of “God save the king”.

Red card! Kohlberg (Brighton)

An awesome start for Brighton. Emma Kohlberg was shown a red card straight after challenging Arsenal’s Stena Blackstein, who was passing on goal.
