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.
We have been lucky in the fact that quite a lot of our players didn’t even get a call up so we should be fitter than most to cope with the glut of games coming up.
To start with we have our must-win League game against Southampton at the Emirates. We simply cannot afford to drop off the pace any further. I’m not even sure if Wenger will put out his very best team as he will want to save players like Alexis (who has to contend with a flight back from South America) for the possibly even more crucial trip to Paris to face PSG on the following Tuesday. But I am so sure that we are going to win this game with room to spare I am going to use this Bet365 Bonus code and use the bookies money to win money backing Arsenal.
After that we go to Paris and Wenger would love us to get at least a draw to give us chances of finishing top of the Group. Paris is the first of three away games in the space of a week, and the second is a trip to Hull, who have had a brilliant start to the season despite having 50% of their squad out injured. This will not be easy either….
Next up is our League Cup trip to Nottingham to see Lord Bendtner in action. We will definitely be using the depths of our squad for that one as we need to prepare for the MASSIVE home game against Chelsea. We definitely need to change our dismal record against the Blues if we mean to be serious title challengers, especially in the home game…
We end the marathon month with our home tie against Basle, where we will hoping to be celebrating a successful September. If we are near the top of the League at that point we will be feeling good as October is looking much more manageable…..
