Wenger: Our first week was very successful

Dear Supporter,

We have now scored 12 goals in our first three games this season. We always feel we can score goals. The information we got after the two first games is that we scored 10 goals, we could have scored more, so that’s a brilliant start. It should create confidence and momentum. The first week was very successful with two difficult away games. Now we have another week, it is another test with Celtic and Manchester United. It looks to be exciting and interesting.

I feel we create good space for our midfielders to run in and to go into the box. On that front we look more dangerous than last season. If you analyse our goals at the moment our strikers provide more than they score. That is maybe down to the way we play as well.

I think you will see the Premier League’s first trend after 10 games. We have a break after Manchester United and then we go away to Manchester City. I am not completely convinced by the organisation of the Premier League and the whole schedule because after two games, one half of the table already has one game in hand. I think maybe we should have done it in a different way.

I was very pleased with Abou Diaby’s contribution against Portsmouth. I think if he decides to play defensively he is exactly like Patrick Vieira. He is a guy who has a quick transition from defence to offence, from box to box, that is his fantastic strength, to change quickly. Nobody can go with him when he has that, when we are on the counter-attack. He is fantastic.

He has been out for nine months. He has been here three years and I have seen that today he played his 100th game so that means he has been out for a long, long time. He has had little problems and he worked very hard this summer. This could be Abou’s year, it could be his season because he prepared well, he looks very sharp, very strong, he has all you dream to have to play in the Premier League.

The atmosphere on Saturday was brilliant. I feel the fans were positive. We had some fantastic moments in the game, as well some moments when we were a little bit flat. You felt that the crowd was always behind the team. We are trying to create something special at the stadium, to make it more warm, to warm the whole place, and the scarves are a part of that. You will see much more – it is not up to me to talk about that – but we want to make this place very special. There is more we will do.

Thanks for your continued support

Arsene Wenger

Oh – and is there a new Freddie in the Gooners hearts, well done England πŸ™‚

  3. avenell says:

    1-3.. Perhaps the spuds ain’t that good.. anyone can beat the dippers..

    Alonso who?

  4. avenell says:

    Was you watching Phil “pinochio” Thompson??

  5. London says:

    I wish we had zonal marking it’s sooooo effective. Benitez is such an over rated tub of lard.

  6. Freire says:

    Hey everyone,
    I’ll bet 2v1 for us tomorrow. Maybe I’ll be in school during the game, that’s why I’m betting now πŸ˜›

    Luck for us, and have a good Tuesday!

  8. rico says:

    Blaise Matuidi rumours are back – sure hope they turn out to be true…

  9. PDT says:

    So long as we get someone at central defence, I am happy.

  10. rico says:

    Morning PDT –

    CH, HM and striker for me to be happy

    Everton are going for Distin, guess they have given up on Swiss Phil

  11. avenell says:

    Morning Roadsters ..

    Talk sport are discussing Liverpool and saying they don’t need a new stadium they need to spend money on the team..
    So they have turned it into an Arsenal bash.. How does that always happen?

  12. Irishgunner says:

    Morning all,

    Big Raddy – agreed on Big Phil. If Silvestre is a back up CB then Senderos is just as good – as long as he isn’t facing Drogba πŸ˜•

    Liverpool = πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜†

  13. rico says:

    Morning Ave and Irish

    Its just wonderful seeing the dippers take a dive πŸ˜‰

  14. rico says:

    Everton and Villa want Distin – was he good for Pompey against us ?? πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰

  15. Irishgunner says:

    That it is Rico, that it is πŸ˜€

  16. rico says:

    Simpson is off to QPR for a year on loan, that will be good for him. Sadly though, I can’t now see him coming back 😦
