The win against Stoke City has definitely enthused Arsene Wenger as much as it enthralled the fans. He was gushing after the game and went on to say that this is just the beginning for Arsenal. In a thinly veiled message to opponents, he said that the Gunners are close to hitting top gear.
Arsenal have flown back into the Top Three since disturbingly losing our opening game to West Ham, and in our facile win over Stoke yesterday we managed 69% of the possession and our opponents hardly had the ball enough to create many chances.
Good – but we need to be more clinical by JH
Arsenal absolutely dominated our arch enemies Stoke today and, despite the heroics of Jack Butland in goal, we still managed to get two goals. As is obvious from our first few games, we created hundreds of chances that were not converted – so to see the Gunners get two past a very good goalkeeper was quite satisfying, especially as I guaranteed Arsenal would win by two goals, and even better for Jonn Hirons who predicted the 2-0 scoreline. So we should all be very happy today as well as a little bit richer…
Arsenal must beat Stoke!! by JH
I have been thinking a lot about our start to the season, and as I have said all Arsenal are missing is goals, we make chances but are yet to click when it comes to finishing.
