1-0 to The Arsenal. That was exceedingly sweet. But not sweet like, “man, that was too sweet for me, I never want to taste that again.” It was sweet like ambrosia (not that weird fruit salad my Mom used to make).
What a fantastic win, what a fantastic atmosphere, what a fantastic day.
Here are my tend random thoughts:
I said to a friend before the game that I believe Arsenal have the best “team” in the Premier League. We are way to shallow in squad depth, other teams have better players in certain positions, but I think we are overall the best “team” when we have our starting XI.
It was great to see Flamini on the pitch for Arsenal. I think he is going to fit in well.
Thank God Jack wasn’t hurt. And he just had a case of the scoots.
Speaking of Jack, I can’t wait to see him at his best. He’s still pretty flat right now.
Arsene looked like a kid in a candy shop at the end of the game. Steve Bould looked like his cat just died. It was an odd dynamic.
I think Ramsey is going to be Arsenal’s most important player this season. I didn’t say best, I said most important.
Nacho scares the crap out of me. Maybe he just needs a run of games.
What a fantastic team effort. Everybody contributed and played with great energy and enthusiasm.
Szczesny is quietly having a very good early season. Not counting Villa, of course.
Cazorla looks like he plans to grab the PL by the scruff of the neck this season. He’s also shorter than Rosicky, which isn’t easy to do.
