Well as international breaks go, Arsenal fans, that latest one was about as good as we have had in some time. No more injury problems for Arsenal, while Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott, Alexis Sanchez, Joel Campbell, Aaron Ramsey, Santi Cazorla, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Serge Gnabry and Chuba Akpom all found the back of the net for their respective national sides.
Add to that the fact that a couple of our big rivals, Man City and Bayern Munich, have lost key players in David Silva, Sergio Aguero and Mario Gotze due to injury, and you can dertainly say that luck has been on the side of Arsenal over the last week or so.
It is about time too, as Arsene Wenger has been plagued with bad luck for so long it has started to feel like a curse. The thing is though, we really need this luck to carry on, at least until January. The manager´s decision not to sign any outfield players this summer, or his failure to find the ones he wanted, has left the Gunners with a strong side but vulnerable to losing a key player or two.
But we are really starting to motor and if the likes of Coquelin, Koscielny, Ozil, Walcott, Alexis, Cazorla and all can stay fit and free from injury, then I believe we have a fantastic chance of becoming champions of England again. The big question is, will our luck hold or will Arsenal pay for not adding players in the transfer window?
