Well what a fantastic weekend for football, Chelsea drew with Spurs which has eased our 3rd place battle, Stoke drew with Man City and I don’t know what the hell is happening with Liverpool as they lost to Wigan! All the other ‘top’ teams looked dreadful this week as we seemed to get our victorious firing cannons out! Most of my predictions for a league I have with some lads have come true this weekend.
But lets get down to the important game. Villa who have a better record at Arsenal than any other Premiership team probably thought they’d keep that up but an on form Arsenal just played so well. A great win for Arsenal that takes us up to a comfortable 3 points above the rest. It all started with a cool little Gervinho assist to Gibbs who took a shot and sent it past Given’s arm into the net. First Premier League goal for Gibbs! 9 mins later came a great Song ball to Walcott who took such a comfortable shot and scored with ease. A great set piece from Arteta seals the deal for us Gunners. The fact that we had goals from, Gibbs, Walcott and Arteta was also good, it was nice to see some different contributors. It has shut up a few more pundits who claim we rely on Van Persie for all our goals as well.
I bet every Arsenal fan in the world is as happy as I am that we seem to have got our winning form back! The best consecutive record for winning that we have had for 5 years! I think everyone in our team has done so well for pulling together and making what looked like a really bad season for us into a half decent one. In what has been a strange premiership season of terms of form and match results I think Arsenal have proved that sometimes thing have to fall apart for better things to come…Keep going you Gunners, we’re behind you every step of the way.
