Arsenal Arsenal Top Of The League! One down 37 to go

One down 37 to go! by Shenel

 So game one is done and dusted and there’s only another 37 to go😂

But if Arsenal take each game as it comes, and if each performance gets better and better than I don’t see why we can’t reach that target we are aiming for..

I was impressed with the boys last night, although at times I did have heart palpitations when Palace came forward and after a few nervy moments from Aaron Ramsdale I wasn’t confident we would keep a clean sheet.

But of course it was match day one of what is going to be another long season and the boys were going to have a bit of nerves and tests, especially at the back, but after Ramsdale made that key save from only six yards out, his confidence grew and a clean sheet was never going to slip from his grasp.

The team started brightly and really could have killed Palace off in that first half, but again maybe nerves played a part. However the breakthrough came from Gabriel Martinelli pouncing on a header from a corner and the nerves and game was put to bed with five minutes to go as a Saka shot was deflected into Palace’s net by Marc Guehi to wrap up the points and the game.

Really the game could have gone either way as Palace too grew into the game and some key tackles and chances came and went, but the most important thing was the win and the three points and for the first time in a long while, “we are top of the league say we are top of the league”…

I know it’s early to say that but I couldn’t help but give a little chuckle when hearing our fans chant that last night. And long may that place in the table continue..

It is clear to see Mikel Arteta is assembling a good team, and if they stick together and build strongly then maybe they will do some great things, but let’s not run before we can walk as there is a long way to go, but it’s nice to play first and get that win, now we can sit back and enjoy the rest of the matches for the weekend before we face our next opponents.

Onwards and upwards we go!

  1. Top of the league with thirty seven to go in this long and grueling season.

    The game plan was right starting on the front foot to hit them hard and early, lots of things to take from this match, one thing for sure we will be scoring more goals this season

  2. The players got five relatively easy games before visiting the Old Trafford, which hopefully can be used to build their confidence

    I also hope any legal issues that are looming over our key players will be settled soon, otherwise we’ll lose the team commanders

    I heard Mari is going to Verona or Monza, so maybe we’ll recruit a new left-footed CB? Perhaps we can hijack Monaco’s loan deal for Chelsea’s Malang Sarr or sign Zagadou

      1. Yup. But if we can’t win against the four mid-table teams before playing against Man United, we might as well forget about any trophy this season

      2. There aren’t easy games but there are easier games than others, people seem to get confused between these two things. Would you rather play Man City 37 times or Leeds 37 times? There’s your answer

  3. What a fine article ! Greta context and not getting carried away, while still recognising the improvement from last season.

    I APPRECIATE BALANCE in articles and good context too, both of which this article had, so well writen Shenel! Likie most Gooners I am excited by the prospect of what lies ahead and also thought that PALACE will be a verty difficult side to overcome , both home and away.

    But at home with that excellent crowd so passionately behind them all game long, they will, IMO, prove a better team than many think. Which makes our fine win their all the better!

    At 71, I feel like an 8 year old kid again, so excited am I by even as soon as the Leicester game a long week away. COYG!!

  4. Can I just say, Saliba! WOW. The biggest difference last night and definitely worthy of MOTM. With Tomi back and White on the bench we ill have a formidable defence. My only worry is our midfield. We need a world class DM to replace Xhaka. With that sorted I would feel happy to face anyone because up front we look frightening with Jesus in between Martinelli and Saka. Odeghard is free to do what he does best. Dictate the pace.

  5. Positive start of the season. Players Fought hard. Let’s keep the momentum going. Let’s stand behind our players win or lose.

  6. heaps of fans still want 2 or 3 more signings before the window closes and another 2 or 3 more during the winter window
