Well That Was A Statement!

Well That Was A Statement!

Arsenal sold their best players, their defence is too weak, Arsene needs to spend or Money City will overtake them. Blah, blah, blah. It's all rubbish I tell you!

Six to one. I repeat SIX to one! It really doesn't get much better than this. I haven't felt this good in a long, long time. Today Arsenal played like they had something to prove, and how sweet was that to watch? Every player was magnificent. Song, Vermaelen, Gallas, Fabregas, Denilson were all brilliant. Take your pick for man of the match (Then vote in our new poll to your right). It's easy to sit here and say how good this Arsenal team can be now, but I've been saying it all summer. There's a long way to go I know, but this is surely a statement of intent.

Have a great weekend Gooners! When Tim gets back from Liverpool, he'll have you his usual top-class match report.

I never saw that one coming. I saw Arsenal winning, as I stated on the BS build up, but never in a million years thought they would implode like they did. Great result gooners. You've got a decent starting det of fixtures as well. Could look good until after Christmas, then we'll see how the pressure holds. Gonna be a cracking season.

Vermaelen was the MOTM, but Song a close second. great result. Still need a backup to Song and Denilson, there is literally nobody else.

Not even Adebayor scoring on his debut could ruin this :D
