We all know that we have two weeks without proper football now and the boredom is inevitable, but the most important thing is that we go into it with a great Arsenal win away from home which has put us back into the top half of the League and filled us with confidence for the long campaign ahead.
Cardiff really made us work for it though and, with our away record, we had every right to be worried with a big potential banana skin staring us in the face. But we overcame it, and Aaron Ramsey (who was surprisingly the only Welsh player on the pitch) admitted that the Gunners sill had a lot to learn from Emery’s training. “Of course.” he said. “We know it’s going to be a process and hopefully we’ll improve in every game to get stronger and stronger as the season goes on. We’ve done well after the tough start that we’ve had, so hopefully now we can come back from international duty and kick on..”
It was certainly a great start to September, and Lacazette and Aubameyang worked as a partnership, so we have lots of positives to take away. When they all come back from the international break we have a good chance to go on a long winning run, which I outlined in my September Review, and we can now go into the boring interlull in a great mood.
Certainly a lot more confident than Tottenham – lol!
