Swans taken to the sea by Gunners

             So Saturday appeared a bit too soon after the toiling trip to the hawthorns. After playing over 120 minutes there was a bit of concern over some of the 1st team members of the squad whether they'll be match fit in time. And another concern for me was whether or not i get to watch the match, a friends party involving the 1st of a kind pitcher of Old Monk was hard not to resist. So there i was sitting at Jersey 9 pub and waitin for the game week to start.
              Upfirst Chelshit were playin Sp*rs so had to endure 90 mins of a tame London derby. Yes the referee got a few decisions wrong but he did that consistently well for both teams, and the match ended in a draw with both teams getting just a point which goes well for us. Now to the Manchester teams both red and blue conceded the 1st goal and den came back on level terms while city fans a brief sense of relief when they went a goal up to villa they conceded two brilliant counter attacking finishes making the England no.1 look like a schoolboy. And the other half of Manchester slumped to their 2nd defeat in a row when Berahino sealed the deal after a Rooney equalizer. City lie at 5th in the table and Utd lie 12th when this was written...

Rambo time at Liberty stadium
    A great set of results when Arsenal are sitting pretty at the top and having a good away run fancy a tough test at the Liberty stadium. Gooners were positively surprised to see Gnabry in the line up to the match when he had played 120 mins at the Hawthorns and was lookin exhausted by the end of it. But trusting Wenger has never been wrong about young players and the line ups and trust he shows and gives the players is never futile. So the match starts two of the top 5 passing teams in the EPL facing each other and the 1st half was about cancelling each other attacks and nullifying the game of the opponent, the home side started in  a strong fashion and Jonjo and Michu started their attacks Ramsey and Flamini started their own brand of high pressure football and the gunners started to settle in. The half was exciting not for the goals but for the range of passin and interceptions on display. So far was the proficiency in display that even the defenders were battling to prove which defense could roll out a better pass.The attacks were not flowing enough for either side as there was no shots on target during the 1st half in added time Giroud had a glorious chance when a scintillating Gnabry took charge on the flanks and a hazy run to deliver Giroud the ball but the striker couldn't react well enough and the chance was wasted. The 2nd half started in a similar fashion but the gunners began to take charge almost immediately and Wilshere Ramsey Gnabry and Giroud started a string of beautiful passin leadin to attack after attack at that. Ozil had a subdued match this...
               In that run of play and excellent move involving Ramsey Wilshere Giroud and Gnabry ended in one of the finest attackin team goal u'll ever get to see and Gnabry entered the record books with his 1st goal in an EPL match youngest after Cesc4Fabregas  (my idol, i may add). 4 minutes later the man with the golden feet at the moment for Arsenal notched up his 8th in as many games Aaron Ramsey. The welsh man was relived by Giroud after Wilshere broke down the swans attack and strung a beautiful 1-2 with Ramsey to find Giroud who in turn found Ramsey who dispatched the shot/pass with aplomb. 0-2 and top of the table. Away gooners in full flow the night couldn't be more Arsenal like without a few scares Bony was brought on by the swans and he started nice and direct got space and boom goes a shot. We had a few more scares to deal with Wilshere erring a pass straight on to Bony who miscued the shot.LUCK. But Bony made the impact and Swansea side was rejuvenated with his presence they started to be more confident and a momentary lapse of concentration and Bony passed it to the on comin Ben davies who finished in style 1-2 .
Arsene brought the back up full backs on to kill some time and to ensure the 3pts on the day he completes 17 years with Arsenal... 
               Final whistle and the gooners were celebrating a rare brilliant Saturday!!! Arsenal on top of the table with two point lead over scum, Manchester supporters feeling down the drain and well that made a near perfect weekend some more rum and i am Mr. Smiley for the weekend!!! Until to welcome Napoli to the Emirates its Hic Hic!!! from my side foxriver11 signin off . Adios!!!
