Pundit admits Arsenal is building towards something special

Michael Owen has admitted Arsenal is developing into a special club after they beat Fulham at the weekend to maintain their 100 per cent start to the season.

The Gunners have signed some fine players in this window, but more importantly, they have made a bright start to this campaign.

Mikel Arteta’s side has won their opening four league games of the campaign, including inflicting a first defeat of the campaign on Fulham who held Liverpool to a draw.

This team is a special Arsenal side and they are likely to achieve more than most predicted this season.

Former Liverpool forward Owen says they might not be title challengers yet, but they are doing something to look out for.

He said, as quoted by HITC:

“I think there is something special brewing at Arsenal. 

“That’s not to say they are going to win the league.

“But you just feel they are creeping closer to what all their fans think. We have been talking for what 10-15 years? It has been a long time in waiting, but there is a lot of positivity around the place.

“I just feel, the players, the fans, there is something quite special now. It’s felt like quite a sour place for a few years. It felt like fans didn’t really like the players and vice versa.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

We are at a stage where we are now showing signs of things to come, and the club will benefit from trusting Mikel Arteta as its manager.

The Spaniard has been making the team stronger than it was before now, and we can trust him to keep developing it.

Hopefully, they will maintain this bright start to the season.

  1. It is a little early to start the ‘something special’ talk about Arsenal. Yes, the club has won all its games and you cannot ask more of any team than to win the games they play.

    However, Arsenal’s four victories have been a solid win against Crystal Palace, a victory over bereft Leicester, and wins against two newly promoted sides, a dominating performance against newly promoted Bournemouth and a fortunate victory over stubborn Fulham. Arsenal scored twice against the Cottagers, but both goals were lucky; a lucky deflection for the first and a wild scramble for the second after Leno misplayed the ball in the air.

    By October 9, it will be clear as to where the Gunnners are after they play Manchester United at Old Trafford, then Tottenham and Liverpool at the Emirates.

    Realistically, Arsernal should beat Aston Villa next week, so 5-0 and top of the table is entirely possible. If the Gunners can manage a draw against Man U, beat Everton at home and Brentford away, then defeat Tottenham at the Emirates and perform well against Liverpool, regardless of the result, Arsenal fans will know the team is finally emerging from its post-Wenger hangover.

    Given the nature of the schedule, a ten-game tally of 7 wins 2 draws and a loss would suggest a special, Champions League season is under weigh. From what we’ve seen so far, this should be possible.

  2. Michael Owen’s mouth is always bad and sour whenever he’s talking about Arsenal.

    His comments about Arsenal are bitter and irrelevant.

    The best answer to give him is silence.

    ………. ………. …….. ……..

  3. Seven years ago my nephew moved here from North America. I convinced him that Arsenal was the only team in London to support. He went all in and even bought season tickets.

    Yesterday he finally thanked me.
