The Wales international midfielder Aaron Ramsey is not too worried about Arsenal’s opening day loss to West Ham, and has appealed to Arsenal fans to ignore the Premier League table until a quarter of the season has passed, to make a more realistic assessment of how our season is going.
It has not been a great start to the season for Arsenal, there is no doubt about that. And after all the talk of how important it was for the Gunners not to repeat our start of last season when we let Jose Mourinho´s Chelsea build an unassailable lead before we even got going, it does feel like we have blown it again.
Did someone recently suggest that Arsenal had waved goodbye to the injury problems that had been causing Arsene Wenger so many problems in the last few years? Well Mesut Ozil is the latest Gunner to have to miss a game this season, due to a knee problem, and it is starting to look like nothing has changed.
I have said it before and I will say it again – Olivier Giroud is a much better player than many Arsenal fans give him credit for. But despite scoring that fantastic volley that helped Arsenal to our crucial away win at Crystal Palace a couple of weeks ago (that everyone seems to have forgotten about) it is true that the big French striker has not has not yet convinced Arsenal fans that he is top quality yet…
One of the major criticism leveled at Arsenal and Arsene Wenger´s transfer policy on Monday night by Gary Neville was the same issue that a vast majority of us fans have been left frustrated by for many years, namely the Defensive Midfield debate.
Arsenal close to blowing it already!!! by DN
When I say that the season could be over for Arsenal as early as Saturday I mean, of course, our hopes of winning the Premier League again, the trophy that we last lifted after going a whole season without losing a single league game in 2003-04.
I accept that Arsenal were not very good against Liverpool on Monday, especially in the first half when it looked like all 10 outfield players had just been woken up in the Arsenal version of the film The Hangover and nobody really knew what was going on.
