Turned the corner?
0-2 down at home to Aston Villa in the FA CUP and I really did fear the worst.
Fast forward a week and we came back to beat villa, got a draw away at Bolton and put seven past Blackburn at home.
I guess we will really learn what this Arsenal side is about next Saturday when we go to the Stadium Of Light; a win there and maybe a small corner has been turned. Sunderland is a hard place to go specially in recent weeks.
The game on Saturday was much needed. The players needed a lift; the manager needed a lift and the fans bloody needed a lift!
The reputation of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain grew further and there are cries of him being included in the England squad for this summer's European championships.
Theo Walcott, who in my opinion is sometimes a bit of a scapegoat had a terrific game with three outstanding assists.
Robin Van Persie may have scored three tap ins HOWEVER, the movement he has in the box is something really special. His movement is so intelligent and its not by the luck of god that he is often in the right place at the right time.
Now we are off to the Stadium Of Light then off to Milan then possibly back to the Stadium Of Light. Three games, in three competitions.
Up The Arsenal !
