i thought its gonna be dejavu. starting all over again. last season, cesc dan nasri left and came in gervinho and arteta. wenger also bot mertesacker and santos to shore up defence but gunner struggle in the first 8-9 games and rank the bottom quarter. now after 2 draws against sunderland and stoke then facing kops, i said oh no is it gonna be like last year. luckily gunner manage an unconvincing 2-0 win over kops. overall good team play, defence was good (clean sheet so far) as well as midfield but somehow the midfield and frontline has not linkup enough, hence the strikers rarely find the nets.
its only first 3 games but am quick to compare with last season. gooners are desperate after long trophy-less years. even the erratic london neighbour manages to get a cup or two. gunner may have a better line up this season and i hope the team particular the new guy (come on giroud) will quickly settle in. wilshere and sagna as well as szczesny may be back soon and gunner could have a formidable force and win something. look at the turnaorund last season for gunner to steal 3rd place, we could have been the champion if, and only if we had started the season in a better way. its a marathon and if gunner can be more consistent, made possible with broad option across fields to face multiple leagues, then i think gunner can win something this season. go gunners!
p/s: just upgrade my astro package to beyond. gonna enjoy gunner games which mainly around 10pm this season huhu!
