Arsenal v Everton Half-time Review – Incredible performance from our new signings…

Arsenal have another chance to prove that the Emirates is becoming a fortress for the Gunners, and although our away form has been awful this season, we did manage to put five past Everton at Goodison Park early iin the season, so it is little surprise that we are very short favourites in the betting with 10Bet before the game started.

And we certainly started well! Arsene Wenger’s philosophy that Arsenal just need to score a lot more goals came into play right from the beginning of the game, with a great goal from Aaron Ramsey after just six minutes . Ramsey latched onto an excellent pass from home debutante Mikhi and suddenly Arsenal look like the attacking team that Wenger wanted.

Mikhi is looking like the best player on the pitch for me, and just 4 minutes after the goal he tried a great shot which looked destined to go in but just sneaked past the post. Immediately afterwards our other new boy PE Aubameyang had his first chance in an Arsenal shirt, but the ball got blocked by a defender. But no problem as from the resulting corner Mesut Ozil threw it into the box, Mustafi got a header across the box and Koscielny got his head to it with PEA right behind him if he had missed. 2-0 after 14 minutes! I like this attacking philosophy!

Amazingly just five minutes later Ramsey got his second, making Wenger’s decision to drop Wilshere look like a great move, it took a deflection but Jason Pickford had no chance with it. 3-bloody-0 lol. 19 minutes gone…

Then the one we’ve been waiting for, as Mikhi finds PEA in the box and he brilliantly and cooly chips it over Pickford into the back of the net. He was a bit offside but who cares now, it is already a brilliant home debut for both our new stars and we are already 4-0 up and it’s not even half-time!

You have to feel sorry for Theo Walcott who has had the only chance of the half for Everton but he must be feeling very low right now… (haha!)

Arsenal are looking imperious and let’s hope we continue this excellent flying form in the second half…

    1. Not unreal… real.

      “Amazingly just five minutes later Ramsey got his second, making Wenger’s decision to drop Wilshere look like a great move, it took a deflection but Jason Pickford had no chance with it. 3-bloody-0 lol. !9 minutes gone…”


      Sell Jack over the summer, after getting him to sign and be part of the England team.

      Mkhi” 3 assists so far.

  1. So what’s stopping us from playing like this away from home????

    1. I think we will, Mikhi and Auba have added that extra boost we needed

    2. Exactly, I just don’t get it.

      On home form we are title contenders.
      Away form we are in danger of relegation.

  2. This is exactly the start you dream of with new high quality signings. Let’s keep it going in the second half and add a few more goals, then kick on over the coming weeks for a top 4 finish.

  3. Auba’s goal is offside but to hell with them, even Ronaldo scores a lot of those

  4. Great half but isn’t being “a bit offside” being like being a bit pregnant? ☺

  5. going really well !! only worry is Xhaka ..Iwobi has been really good

    1. Yes. I was complaining before the start but he has played well.
      Xhaka worries me too. A player costing £35 mil shouldn’t be worrying fans lol

    2. I am harsh on Iwobi but I almost lost it when he “Elastico’d” that guy on the wing.

  6. Aubameyang 1st of many goals ??⚽ to come in the future
    And from a Mkhitaryan assist
    Who needs Alexis?
    I love Auby and Mikhy
    Wow, what a first half
    Ramsey close to a hattrick too

    Keep it going boys!

  7. Excellent first half. Good if we can carry on throughout the remaining season. Previous experience shows no no but we all can be optimistic after all these Jan additions. Mhki is absolutely best. Keep on the spirit guys.

  8. It feels like I am watching repeat telecast of Crystal Palace Game…

  9. Arsenal play well first half
    Switch off in the second half
    Wenger’s team talks must be a joke.
    Could not motivate his players to leave a burning building…

    1. He changed somethings in the second half of a recent game against Chelsea and the last time I checked we won that game to qualify for a final… realistic….be fair

  10. This is a case study in how to lose the support of a stadium in less than half an hour. Pathetic second half performance

    1. You mean Everton should play dead the whole game?

      There are 11 professionals on the other side you know.

      1. I wasnt expecting another four goals. But I was expecting them to maintain the same level of effort (effort not result). With the season we are having there is no excuse for losing focus and drift out of the game. Lack of focus has killed us this year and that first 30 minutes of the second half was pathetic.

  11. sorry to me a pyrrhic Victory = Wenger beneficiary
    Wenger Out!!!
