Our Arsenal have got their fans back!

Arsenal fans at the Emirates last night were treated to yet another three goals as the Gunners recorded their tenth win in a row. We had to come from behind again but Unai Emery thinks that the fans lifted the team to keep fighting for the three points. The new boss said after the game: “When we were winning, controlling the game and finding chances to score, I think thatโ€™s the moment when our supporters pushed us forward and helped us. The atmosphere today was very big. The first 30 minutes was a difficult period and we needed to be together for our style and progressing in the match. We deserved to win today for everything in the 90 minutes.”

The win moves us up to Third place on goal difference and we really are mixing it with the big boys at the moment. But Emery just wants to concentrate on the next game: “It was very important for us to beat Leicester because theyโ€™re not far behind us. Now weโ€™ve created a lot of distance with the teams behind us.

“Now in front we are looking at teams like Liverpool, like Manchester City, like Chelsea, but itโ€™s not important to think about the end. We need to think about the next match against Crystal Palace on Sunday and I also think the Europa League is very important on Thursday.”

The fans are really getting behind the new manager, and ten wins in a row surely helps our mood. As our Man of the match Alexander Iwobi says. “Let’s make it 11″……

    I told you guys that we will go all the way with wins till the liverpool game. But i am telling you, now to get back in being respected as we where before we need to beat liverpool. Being proud of your team is what matters the most. Win or lose we want to see our team fight and we are fighting. Very proud.

    1. ozziegunner

      ks-gunner, spot on; the team is obviously working hard under Unai Emery and his assistants, they are well coached, substitutions are being made at appropriate times, the players are enjoying their football and are proudly playing for each other and the badge.
      Like you, as an Arsenal supporter I am so pleased that win, lose or draw, the players are showing a never say die attitude and giving their best. Liverpool may be in for a rude shock if they take this Arsenal team lightly. However one game at a time.

      1. jon fox

        Spot on and at the risk of further upsetting those Gooners still brainwashed by Wengers last dreadful decade, isn’t what you posted EXACTLY WHAT any manager SHOULD do! Not just for his first 12 of 22 years and then sit back and refuse to keep up with the games new developments. I still resent that last decade when Wenger so harmed our progress. The positive spin on that though, is that Emery, who IS doing a great job, is rightly compared FAVOURABLY to the neglect of Wengers last decade.

        1. Greg

          Absolutely right, Jon. Wenger was too complacent and arrogant in the end, and itโ€™s clear the players are enjoying the challenges posed by Emery and actually having some tactics to play to.

    2. gotanidea

      Yes, most of us would surely want to see all players fight back after getting robbed or harassed in the field

      I guess Emery intends to force his high pressing strategy to his players, so let’s see which one that will fight as a proud Gunner in the future

    3. Greg

      Still buzzing about the way we played and the goals. Iโ€™ve lost count how many times Iโ€™ve re-watched them. This sublime style is unique to Arsenal and we have to love the club and the team and the coaching staff for the sheer beauty of their play even if it canโ€™t be matched every week, which is natural enough. I havenโ€™t enjoyed watching Arsenal so much since the days of Henry, Bergkamp and Viera, as the pace has returned to the attack and we are finally accepting it isnโ€™t superfluous or ugly to put a tackle in. Terrific team spirit lifts my spirits too. Emery still has a lot to do as we canโ€™t buy success but am so glad he replaced the phony philosopher that was Wenger in his final years. COYG!!

  2. Sue

    Ozil said some sexy football was played last night – damn right!!!
    It was superb… wish I’d been there. Please play like that against Wolves when I’m there ๐Ÿ˜Š
    Now on to Thursday, come on boys keep this run going!
    Only thing I want to know is.. where’s Aubameyang’s hair??!! COYG

  3. Taiwo

    Am please the way they play yestaday,good job guy let keep it up.dont 4get against liverpool let them know the gunspirit

  4. Urch

    The arsenal of Yesterday reminds me of arsenal of the days of Thierry Henry,Bergkamp, Vieira, Kanu, Pires etc… The classical arsenal! When that own goal was conceded, the look on their faces showed that Leicester will receive the beat of their life. May that continue and we are looking forward to the game against Liverpool and I have that belief that arsenal will beat Liverpool. Now, arsenal only wins and we don’t negotiate with any teams for draw or anything

  5. Uche2u

    “The win moves us up to Third place on goal difference”, Nai, we are still 4th on goals difference.

  6. Samuel Akinsola Adebosin

    Are Arsenal actually 3rd in the table on GD or are 4th in they table behind Chelsea on GD but are on the same 21 points with them?

    Goal difference counts and matters a lot. Because it can be the decider on which club sits in a position in or on the table.

    .The goals scoring bad day form that Lacazette had yesterday against Leicester accounted for Arsenal to currently be sitting in 4th position in the table. For, had he converted at least 2 goals scoring chances for Arsenal in the match after they took a 3-1 lead in the game, Arsenal would have been joint 3rd in the table with Chelsea now with the same +13 goals difference. So, it’s very important for Arsenal to be scoring many goals in high number in the PL as much as they can from now on.

    Please, let’s endeavour to keep our focus on the next Arsenal match at a time. And not be focusing on their next next match. If Emery and the Gunners were to be focusing on the next next next Arsenal march like their Liverpool home big game in the PL before the time to play the match arrived, then Arsenal will lose some focusing on their next Sporting CP match in the Europa on Thursday night. But thank God! Emery and the Gunners are not having their focus that way.

    1. ozziegunner

      Samuel, Lacazette had an excellent game, despite not scoring against Leicester City; his doaks have however won Arsenal other games.
      Just remember that Arsenal would be 3 points better off, except for bad missrs by Aubameyang and Mhikataryan against Chelsea.
      Football is a team game and hopefully enough players are on, to compensate for othets not quite at the top of their game on any particular day. One game at a time!

  7. LENOhappy

    Ohh iwobi played bad yet he was given the man of the match yet again,I think this is the third time this season he will win that,keep it up Alex iwobi,the most in form player in the premier league and keep proving doubters wrong

    1. gotanidea

      How come the MOTM is not Ozil?

      I think Bellerin and him changed the game after they redeemed their mistake by equalizing Leicester’s goal

      1. jon fox

        Of course the REAL MotM was Ozil, though I don’t know who theTV pundits chose. But in their case , who cares anyway. Other contenders , though clearly a way behind the sublime Ozil, were IWOBI, BELLERIN and to me, two who were noticeably major disappointments were Xhaka and Holding, who should have been responsible for us probaly losing the game, with a better ref. Sorry guys but in fairness we all know that is true.

        1. Midkemma

          Jon…
          We agree on something XD

          Xhaka didn’t have a good game, I hope he keeps working hard and Emery can get the best out of him consistently, Xhaka appears to be fully committed to working hard and I hope that commitment pays off. He could be a beast if he can consistently play at his best.

          Nice to see you praise Bellerin, I hope he can keep building on his performances and convert the doubters ^.^

          I am happy about this as I have been defending him as you know ๐Ÿ˜› I do recognise he has to keep developing and he can do better still but this is encouraging signs that Emery can turn around players who some may have already written off.

          1. jon fox

            Midkemma, In fact you and I have agree on many things but foolishly we have both concentrated on those areas on which we disagree. I HAVE BEEN VERY SRTONG, TYPICALLY, IN MY COMMENTS TOWARDS YOU BUT WANT TO BE FRIENDS FROM NOW ON. YOU ARE CLEARLY A BRIGHT AND PASSIONATE FAN AND I FLATTER MYSELF THAT I AM TOO. Pointless continuing our feud after every post. I propose to call a halt right now. Great to agree with you too and from now on I am confident we can do so regularly. WE WILL OF COURSE FROM TIME TO TIME DISAGREE, SINCE FOOTBALL IS A MATTER OF OPINIONS but I pledge to be kinder in my comments from now on. I guess we are all thrilled at thr great changes Emery is making. The transformation in Iwobi is almost miraculous; from boy to man , and a darned talented one too, in a few weeks. He now excites me and I CANNOT CONCEIVE A TEAM WITHOUT HIM PLAYING.

            1. Midkemma

              Iwobi development is a prime example of the change we needed after Wenger, Emery may not have been anyone’s first choice but he has shown to be the right man to follow a 22 year reign, someone who will keep the attacking mentality but also get every player pressing and looking to win the ball back. I’m looking forward to seeing the other youngsters progress.

              Brothers can fight but the love is still there, we’re part of the Arsenal family ๐Ÿ™‚

              1. ozziegunner

                Bellerins has improved his crossing on attack; however his positional play in defense is still poor.
                He is still young and a work in progress for Emery and his assistants.

                1. Midkemma

                  As poor as Lich was on the left?

                  I believe this is something Emery is asking from his fullbacks, while we may like to see someone stay back and act solid in def, if the manager isn’t wanting that then the players has to do what told or not play.

                  I do not think Emery will install a level of def first in fullbacks, he will be a lot like Wenger and push them forward, get them acting like Wingers so our wide attackers can be more in the style of inside forward. Our CBs should be able to cover it along with DM able to cover any gap which may arise in CB area when one of the CBs is going to cover the fullback area.

                  I’m all aboard the Emery Hype train but I do like to keep my feet grounded ๐Ÿ˜› I know that no human being is perfect and Emery is no different, he will have flaws. I think this is one of them but please don’t take that as a moan ๐Ÿ™‚ Just recognising reality… Or at least an attempt.

              2. Andrew E

                I have been critical of Iwobi but perhaps I should have criticised the previous coaching staff. His transformation as a player is amazing and has to do with the confidence he is getting from the new coaching regime. Not only does he look dangerous every time he has the ball, his consistency is amazing. I take my hat off to him and eat humble pie!! Well done Alex.

                By the way has anyone noticed that Bouldy is actually running around AND smiling these days during training!!!

                For the first time in a very long time I feel confident that the club is in a good place.

            2. Abel

              I need to screen grab that comment of yours on Iwobi.
              The lad has been doing his talking on the pitch after an unimpressive world cup outing (National coach didn’t know how to use him)
              It’s good to see he’s won back most of you who used him as a stick to beat Wenger with after his late night indiscretion last season.

        2. Declan

          I agree with you Jon, although I thought that Xhaka was much better when he played at left back after Lichsteiner went off. That could of course have been because Lichsteiner was so bad!

          1. jon fox

            I also thought he(Xhaka) was better at left back, though should point out that Licht is a right back playing on wrong flank against Leicester.

            1. Midkemma

              I thought the same, I was typing so in my initial post to you but it turned into a mega essay read so I dropped it XD

              I think it was largely because he held the line which gave balance to Bellerin being forward, I do not think Emery wants the fullbacks staying back after seeing Lich pushed forward a lot on the left, not his stronger side as you pointed out however I would have expected him to not get caught out so much unless the boss gave him orders to attack! Attack! Attack!

  8. Samuel Akinsola Adebosin

    Are Arsenal actually 3rd in the table on GD or are 4th in the table behind Chelsea on GD but are on the same 21 points with them?

    Goal difference counts and matters a lot. Because it can be the decider on which club sits in a position in or on the table.

But thank God! Emery and the Gunners are not having their focus that way.

    Of course the fans will cheer when Arsenal are in control. But the first halfs of their games are usually worrying, as usually they are dominated by the opponents in the first thirty minutes

    This has to change, because big teams like Liverpool could score more than Leicester and the likes, if given the chance to dominate for twenty minutes

  10. Pablo Piccasso

    Loving the new team spirit, even Ozil is now celebrating like crazy, clearly Unai and his coaching team must be doing something right to build team spirit.

    The energy on the pitch and the touchline is been transferred to the stands and to us the millions watching on tele.

    Lets keep the streak going, if we shut up shop behind we are guaranteed to win because we have an awesome attack.

  11. Bur

    The first 30 mins we were poor enough but after they scored we went up 3 gears and tore them apart. Being greedy I would have liked a few more goals from the several chances created.
    I listened to those 2 Scouse pundits after the game………..they are pure anti Arsenal. I would give them credit if they knew what they were talking about but I now choose to laugh at their comments.
    Glad to see the new eara up and running.

  12. NONNY

    Don’t worry I watch Liverpool and they are not better than those we have already played (city and chelsea) and we are playing them in a better time than when we played city and chelsea have a feeling that match will be a cracker and the best of arsenal will be seen

  13. Sue

    Saw a nice stat… Sanchez has scored 3 goals for United… Aubameyang has scored 4 goals in his last 35 minutes of football ๐Ÿ‘Œ
    Come on Szczesny & Ronaldo tonight ๐Ÿ‘Š

  14. Innit

    Congratulations to Emery for beating his personal record of 9 consecutive wins by beating Leicester to get 10 in a row! Hopefully more personal and team glory to come.

  15. Patrick Karani

    It’s amazing how quickly things change. Just a few months ago, most Arsenal fans had absolutely given up on Iwobi, Bellerin and even Ozil. Yet these players have been absolutely brilliant so far this season. If there is a lesson to be learnt, it is simply that players’ performances mostly depends on the coaching staff and the tactics employed. It appears that Wenger’s tactics failed to get the best out of these players. Now all that is required is consistency and working on the defence. If the defence can be sorted out quickly, we shall truly have a say on where the EPL ends this season. What a great performance that was! COYG!!

  16. Declan

    Good to be in 4th Place again and last nights goals were sublime, all three. Ozil now the highest German goal scorer ever in the Premier League.

    1. jon fox

      Above even Klinsmann? I hope you are right and don’t say you are not. But I would be surprised if this is true. But I expect you have checked, so forgive my questioning you.

      1. Declan

        No problem Jon, I thought of Klinsman too but itโ€™s on the BBC site and assume itโ€™s true but not checked it out myself.

      2. Midkemma

        1 more according to Wiki.
        Spuds in 94-95 he scored 20 EPL goals and then followed that up with 9 when he returned in 97/98.

        Surprised me.

  17. Stephan Larose

    It’s easy to be good fans when your team is winning. The test will be to see if the fans actually support their team if they go through a tough patch and start losing games. Will they implode like they have in the past and start attacking their own club? Likely. These fans were spoiled rotten by Wenger and don’t feel any sense of duty to support their club. They just feel entitled to trophies and are the first to undermine their team when things get tough. There are a lot of whiny, negative fans out there who will only make things harder for the players when things get challenging. “When the going gets tough, the tough start self-destructing” appears to be the motto. Gladly it’s not all fans, but it is a worryingly large component and their antics have undermined team morale, cohesion and confidence in the past. I can only hope they keep their sorry traps shut this season, but if there’s a string of say, 3-4 losses, I can only imagine these people starting to come out on social media and start attacking their own players again, especially those looking for their glimmer of internet fame.

    1. RSH

      Alternative history can be fun. The Emirates stuck behind Wenger for years while we were under-performing. Only the last two seasons did Emirates become very toxic. I hate when some fans think fans betrayed AW or something. No other top teams fanbase would’ve put up with 8-9 years of no title challenge and a good amount of shocking scorelines during that time.

      1. ken1945

        RSH, but other fans would have loved to have qualified for the CL AND 3 FA Cups….just ask Liverpool fans!!

        Of course the last two seasons were awful and the shocking scorelines are as much a part of AW’s legacy as those successes he achieved.
        The fans never betrayed AW as you quite rightly say, but some do see him as the sole instigator of all Arsenal’s ills.
        Patently untrue, just look at the Ramsey saga and Gazidis debacle.
        Stephan’s point regarding trophy hunters is so true.
        Just look at the abuse Ozil, Iwobi, Xhaka and Bellerin have received and one wonders why these people claim be fans at all!?!?

        I cannot imagine Emery allowing anything like the last two years tohappen and I believe the days of ANY manager/, coach staying at a club for more than a decade will never happen again.

      2. jon fox

        WOW! A beautiflly accurate post that totally refuted the silly post by Stephan Larose. We had put up with a great deal for many years before the Emirates finally turned toxic and remember it was only THEN that he was sacked, which SHOULD have happened years earlier and would have done had WE not been far too patient. Stephans post is just nonsense! I notice Ken has alreadt defended Wengers, all but last twqo years. But that is as predictable as rain in winter and to be fair,also my slaughtering him constantly.I still massively resent his wasted last decade and though he has at last left the stage,we do not get those WASTED YEARS BACK.

        1. jon fox

          Furthe to my above post, it is easier to move on for young fans who have their life in front of them. I am now 68 and want to see us win the title and CL while I am still alive.I have far less time to waste on the decadeof incompetence of Wenger than young Gooners do.

  18. Tommogun58

    yes I agree those days are probably long gone and so is Arsene so lets all move on, I think Emery deserves great credit to get us back into a winning groove after those first two defeats, we would have lost at least three of those 10 matches last season,and although I think we are still a bit weak defensively I am sure he will be addressing that problem in the next couple of windows.
    Lets hope we continue to improve and give the top sides a difficult time and even beat them.
