A Big Improvement From Last Season!!

Premier League Arsenal

comment on the article

First of all, what a result for us on Saturday! I must admit I had my doubts because of previous results between ourselves and West Ham and the tough trip to Upton Park but we pulled off a win and remain unbeaten this season and remain top of the league. We are four points infront of Liverpool...and wait for it...seven points infront of Chelsea with a game in hand at this early stage of the season!!

Take a look at last season's Premier League results against the teams we have played so far this season - (I am replacing Watford with Derby).

ARSENAL 3-1 Fulham
Blackburn 0-2 ARSENAL
ARSENAL 3-1 Man City
ARSENAL 2-2 Portsmouth
Tottenham 2-2 ARSENAL
ARSENAL 3-0 Watford
West Ham 1-0 ARSENAL

So this would have been where we stood with last seasons results -

P7 W4 D2 L1 GF15 GA7 GD+8 PTS14

These are this seasons results so far -

ARSENAL 2-1 Fulham
Blackburn 1-1 ARSENAL
ARSENAL 1-0 Man City
ARSENAL 3-1 Portsmouth
Tottenham 1-3 ARSENAL
ARSENAL 5-0 Derby
West Ham 0-1 ARSENAL

P7 W6 D1 L0 GF16 GA4 GD+12 PTS19

Quite a big difference!!

We are scoring so many goals from midfield now and Fabregas is world class and IMO can only get better. We are playing beautiful football, and going steady in the Champions League and Carling Cup at the moment. Good results over Sparta Prague to qualify for the Champions League and then an excellent 3-0 win over Sevilla. Our youngsters did really well over Newcastle mid-week by winning 2-0 and now we cruise through to the fourth round with a tough fixture at Bramall Lane against Sheffield United.

We play Steaua Bucharest in the Champions League tonigh in the second game of our group on Tuesday and then we are at home against Sunderland in the Premier League next Sunday before two weeks of internationals. Hopefully two more wins before a break!!

Pundits,the media and especially most of us fans didn't expect what we have witnessed so far this season and I for one was one of the fans that didn't expect this. I think we have proved most people wrong and people can't really say that we are not going to be in the title race this season. I think the biggest things we lacked last season was the consistency and our home form. We have won every game at home this season and the consistency is showing.

So..I just hope this continues, we are playing fantastic stuff at the moment and lets hope that recent injuries won't affect us. And before I go (before anyone says), I am not getting carried away, I am just admiring our start to the season and how well we are playing at the moment.

nks for your caution but u shd remember that some of those the teams MU and LP lost points to them when they met. they ate not as weak as u potray them. Last year we did very well on the big teams only to lose points on small ones and remember each game is 3 points irrespective of the team u play against.

This is a sign that the gunners are finally fulfilling their destiny. Wenger has been very patient in building what can be the dominant team in the premiership for many seasons to come. It's these type of "small" victories that lead to a league cup. Last season arsenal would have lost or at best drawn such a close game, the boys have come of age and are ready to claim what is rightfully theirs.

I still wonder whether Arsenal have what it takes to win against the more physical sides, particularly in the north east.

In fact, have Arsenal even managed to venture beyond the M25 motorway yet? Once I believe, and they duly drew that game.

I'm a gooner but i have to agree with Hansens underpants, freddy's goal should have stood. Wasn't it the same linesman that dissallowed the chelsea goal the other week? He can't be all that bad;)

Blackburn Rovers. They even have a player called Savage, and that explains everything about their style of play. We're still without Gallas and Lehamann.
