Yep, would only have expected one or two points from those three games, if that.
We'll be fine now.

Played well, could have won it on another day but I don’t think anybody let themselves down today, solid 7’s & 8’s across the board for me. Enjoyed it

Fantastic effort. We made arsenal look distinctly average. Although they did a good job of that themselves.

Deserved the win.

We play better football with Jayrod in the team. Very happy with that point, and 7 points out of last 9 is fantastic.

Absolutely, I’ve just watched the replays and he should have scored. But Ian Wright and Alan Shearer have slated him about it as is they never missed sitters.

I’m a big fan of Ash the Bash, but he’s not getting straight back in to disrupt this current Front Two Partnership, once fit.

Brilliant performance, deserved all 3 points.
I really, really wanted to win this one.
I'm actually disappointed with one point.

Great performance, good point, could have and perhaps should have won it....

As for no controversial decisions there was at least one goal kick that should be a corner for us and at least one corner for them that should be a goal kick for us....and we should have had a dangerous free kick. So we miss at least 2 opportunities to put them under the cosh

Out and out performance of the season in terms of attacking football and tidy passing. One of the most entertaining 0-0s I've seen.

Shows how we have improved these last few weeks that we are disappointed with a point.

You know Burnley have played well when you're explaining to someone that Pope came out of his area to nick the ball off an Arsenal player, then 35 yards out in the left back position plays a ball over the top with his left foot, and nearly puts Wood clean through.

I am just happy that Jay has shut up all those people on here saying he was/is not good enough.
Yes perhaps he should have scored however there were several players who could have scored today.
Great performance today, enjoyed it.

Yeah but he’s cr@p with his feet - that’s why Pitchfork is ahead of him in the England squad... ;)

I hope not, he really should have scored, but his overall contribution throughout the match was something to be proud of.

Jay is definitely improving as he gets more familar with the team and them with him. He is linking up with the midfield very well and improving our on the ball play. Hasn't failed to put in a shift, draws players out of position and he doesn't shirk his defensive duties.

His direct link up play with Wood could be improved upon though. At times the two of them seem very uncoordinated, which stands in a stark contrast to the almost telepathic link that Wood and Barnes share.

Looking like a good buy on the playing front, but our next incoming striker has to be younger to give us longevity in that position and improve our financial outlook a bit.

A really good performance and a really good point. Taking the fight to the other team, like we have done in the the last three league games, has given us a new lease of life. All of that sitting back and holding our position against the bigger clubs, hoping a chance falls our way so we can nick a result, was working against us. It represented a defeatist, reactive game plan that isn't a million miles away from our recruitment strategy.

It is good to see us playing on the front foot a lot more. Giving the other team something to think about produces more attractive football and it takes the pressure off our defence. If they are protecting their own goal they aren't attacking ours, which wasn't the case when we were backing off teams and allowing them the run of the pitch.

We are looking a lot more imposing at the moment and the fact that 1 point against Arsenal is accompanied by a slight disappointment that it could have been 3 is a solid marker in terms of progression. Nothing is ever certain, but with the teams we have left to play if we can keep maintain this standard and focus we should be moving up the table and not down.

Excellent performance.

Hugely frustrated that we are not sitting on 33 points tonight though.

Yes I thought Wood in particular was exceptional.

Barnes injury has been a blessing, much as we all love the guy. Jay has played exceptionally well in the last 3 games and our football and passing and ball retention has been some of the best this season. I notice today Jay was challenging and pressing whenever they had the ball, using his strength and of course he could have actually got a hat trick. For those that say he missed a sitter I am not so sure it was as easy as we thought. Had he scored we would be saying how well taken it was.

Tremendous performance today and a proper team effort.Hopefully we can introduce Josh to the bench for the next game. The defense was solid and Jeff and Dwight played really well too

We played really well but I think a point is fair. Don’t forget they missed two guilt edge chances in the first half.

Thought Tarks was brilliant, and maybe more of a captain than Ben...the bollocking he gave Charlie Taylor for playing them onside 1st half...never really seen Ben do that.
