Well, what a game!
When Arsenal were 2-0 down with only half an hour to go, I would imagine most Gooners, including me, thought that Arsenal had no chance of coming back and getting our fully expected three points against lowly Bournemouth.
But it is now becoming the fact that Arsenal are now a team that never give up, and they proved once again to be the fact that you cannot write the Gunners off right until the whistle blows.
And what a strike from Reiss Nelson to finish it off!
I think this game will be watched over and over for years to come…..

Incredible is the word.
Beyond this one game, I’m just so happy for Nelson – I really thought he was done at arsenal a while ago. Everyone knew he had the talent but he didn’t seem to have the self belief – even when he had that great performance earlier in the season, the injury looked to have stopped him again.
Incredible courage and perseverance from Reiss, and it’s amazing to see the manager is giving every opportunity to the players coming through, and showing *real* faith in them (same goes for Eddie and ESR). Arteta stuck by RN and was willing to take a chance on him, and it’s paid off – you can see Nelson will run through walls for him.
There’s nothing better than seeing our former youth players making it in the first team.
It was a WhatsApp video taken by one of my boys at the final whistle which showed the jubilation in the stands and another from son no1 claiming his undying love for Reiss Nelson.
Ive read your reactions but what caused the long added time and was it justified?
