Fantastic display from Arsenal last night. Hats off to Monsieur Wenger for continuing to produce the best football in the top-flight, whatever the resources directed at the squad. He waited long enough to splash serious money, but when he did – oh boy what a signing Ozil is!
As a Leeds fan with a very high regard for the Kings of North London, I can see the Gooners going from strength to strength now, which in my opinion is simply good for English football. Arsenal as a club are a model for just about any other I can think of. Their net spend has always been way below most other top clubs, and class just runs through the whole institution from top to bottom.
Keep on doing what you’re doing, Gunners – a shining example of what a football club should be all about.
The Arsenal squad were clearly pleased with their clinical 2-0 Champions League victory over Napoli on Tuesday night – with Mikel Arteta and Olivier Giroud both posting celebratory dressing room pictures onto the internet.
Arsene Wenger’s in-form team brushed aside Rafael Benitez’s Italian outfit with a ruthless display in the opening 45 minutes.
Mesut’s Ozil’s first goal for the club – a beautifully controlled side-footed volley – and Giroud’s sixth of the season were enough to wrap up an important three points to boost the Gunners chances of qualifying from Group F.
Arteta upload a picture on Twitter from inside the Emirates dressing room, posing alongside Santi Cazorla, Ozil, Lukas Podolski, Per Mertesacker and Giroud.
The Frenchman then added an Instagram picture of himself and his fellow goalscorer Ozil. Spirits certainly appear high amongst the Arsenal dressing room at present.
