Match Review: Arsenal 2 Napoli 0 - Champions League 01.10.13

What a performance. Arsenal's first half performance was the best I've seen since we took AC Milan apart in the 10/11 season. We cruised through the second half and we looked like a team playing with supreme confidence, bordering on arrogance at times. Napoli couldn't get near us, we hit our best form in arguably our trickiest game so far and blew the opposition away comprehensively.

Match Review: Swansea 1 Arsenal 2 - Premier League 28.9.13

I have to say, I really enjoyed that win. Apart from the Sp*rs game, this one has given me the greatest satisfaction. I'm really buzzing following that win, which sees us taking advantage of other sides dropping points and lead the table on points. It really is no small achievement too, many pundits were tipping this to be a game we'd slip up in and Swansea have been in good form of late. Couple that with our huge injury list and it made for a very tough looking game. So to get a win out of the game is very satisfying and hopefully proves that we're on course to do something a bit more than challenging for fourth this year.

Match Review: WBA 1 Arsenal 1 (3-4p) - Capital One Cup 25.9.13

Well, what fun that was. 120 minutes of quite dire, turgid football, rounded off with a flourish of penalty madness. Arsenal squeaked through, despite all the odds being against us and West Brom having arguably the best chances. The youngsters stepped up and did a really solid job, considering they were up against a good, if not full strength, premier league side. West Brom had the more experienced players and the home advantage, but a  mix of youth and experience, plus Bendtner, managed to pull through. It was no fun to watch, but a win is a win and the momentum and positivity continues into a very difficult game at the weekend.
