The international break seems to last forever, and the last week and half have gone at a snail’s pace, but this weekend Arsenal’s season will begin in earnest and our returning internationals will have to hit the ground running.
10 Observations about Arsenal’s win ft Cazorla, Xhaka, Ozil and Co. By Galen
1) Ozil takes our attacking game to the next level. Like Wenger said, I think he could score more goals. I really believe he could score 15 goals a season. I like the fact the the manager is pushing him. I believe he has the quality to do that.
Now its time to make Our stars happy. By Galen Sona.
Watford v Arsenal Review byDN
Arsenal finally fielded a fully fit team against Watford yesterday, even if we still didn’t have a recognised centre-forward in the side, but who needs one when we play like that without one!
After Arsenal’s first two less-than-impressive games,they were back with a bang yesterday against Watford. The Gunners were firing from the off and it wasn’t long before Sanchez was poleaxed in the box and our little Spanish wizard Santi Cazorla cooly put us in front from the spot.
There could be many Arsenal fans conceding that the Gunners were unlucky to be pitted against Klopp’s Liverpool and Champions Leicester in our opening two games of the season, especially with our latecomers and preseason injuries, but perhaps we can now go our usual run of wins against the so-called “weaker” teams.
Arsenal and Leicester ended up as a bore-draw today and after the exciting end-to-end defeat to Liverpool last week this was a total anti-climax. So it is little wonder that the media were more interested in talking about the lack of action in the transfer window rather than the lucky point gained by the Gunners.
Arsenal travelled to the East Midlands today to take on Premier League champions Leicester City, and will have to consider themselves lucky to come away with a draw. Ranieri’s side will argue that they could have had two penalties, Coquelin was let off a yellow card for a deliberate foul just outside the box, and had the most clear-cut goalscoring opportunities also. This will certainly not have pleased any Arsenal fan, but it is a result they will take.
