Can anyone remember the last time Arsenal started a game well? To be fair it has not been all that long, but it does feel at the minute as though the Gunners do not get going until either the second half or until we have let the other team get settled and into a nice lead.
Let’s be honest Gooners and admit that Preston really should have punished us more today and been at least two ahead, especially with that easy ball across the box for a tap in during the first half. But once again there are plenty of positives to be had from the way Arsenal fought back and once again showed steel, character and determination.
Imagine what it would be like if we could show that from the start of every game. Having said that we did start well and take the lead away to Everton and Man City only to lose both games. In those games, however, I think we can put some of it down to fatigue so is there any chance that from now on we see Arsenal start well and keep it up.
If so, just how good we be? Good enough for the Premier League title with a lot of key players coming back?
