Fran Merida Scores On His Debut

Fran Merida Scores On His Debut

The news of Fran Merida's signing was met with great joy from all Gooner's today, but the fact he scored on his first appearance on English soil, doubled the happiness..

Having watched the Arsenal game vs AZ Alkmaar I have little knowledge of the game itself, but by all acounts, Merida scored the goal of the game.

Described by Arsenal.com as a 'swerving effort into the roof of the net' from 25 yards out, it certainly provides all Arsenal fans with something to get excited about.

The player has long been rumoured to have already have signed for the Gunners, official word from the club makes it all the more real.

Two goals from Arturo Lupoli, a screecher from Merida and one from new boy Barazite capped of a great 4-0 victory.

Great news that he has actually signed - we've been waiting for this for months! Always nice to beat Borehamwood, but it's a meaningless fixture - those lads won't see easier opposition than that!

The spuds have an excellent youngster themselves in Huddlestone, I dont know why they dont concentrate on him rather than coming to slag our team off. Seems like arsenal are on their minds rather than the other way around.
