Super funny Sunday caps a good Arsenal weekend

Morning all, welcome to a brand new week after what turned out to be a quite excellent weekend for us, all things told.

Having done what we needed to do at Villa Park on Saturday, Sunday brought a bounty of riches. And by riches I mean hilarious things to point and laugh at. Firstly, Man Utd were 2-0 up, then 3-1 up against Leicester but ended up down to 10 men and losing 5-3.

For people like me who believe that we have the right man for the job as manger then today was particularly satisfying. Arsenal's win over Aston Villa vindicates Wenger's tactics, his signings and his team selection and sends those involved in the mini meltdown, which took place as a result of loosing our first game since April, scurrying to collect their toys they were oh so quick to throw out of the pram in the week.

Well, the fans have giving the team a good kicking this week, we can only hope they pass it on to Aston Villa this afternoon.

We are always unlucky about meeting a team as they are in good from and today is no exception. Given last season's miserable performances it was more likely that Lambert would be sacked rather than make his young team into the formidable opponents they will be post kick-off.

Arsenal need to find some form, somehow, anyhow.

Before the season started we had signed Alexis, Chambers, Debuchy and Ospina as well as finally welcoming Campbell into the squad, in the final minutes of the transfer window we snatched Welbeck from Manure.

Why Arsenal’s 4-1-4-1 Formation Is Not Working

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has implemented a new 4-1-4-1 formation as of late, with either Mikel Arteta or Mathieu Flamini being deployed as the sole defensive midfielder in the middle of the pitch.

Champions League

Ozil, Ramsey and the system

In truth, prior to the defeat in Dortmund on Tuesday night, Arsenal's start to the season had been patchy; a team that looked a little like it was just about being sellotaped together, until Borussia's ruthless dismantling of a dishevelled looking Arsenal side. It's reasonably obvious to everybody by now that Arsene has tried to tinker a little with last season's formula and it's clearly taking some time to synchronise all of the team's attacking attributes.

Morning all.

Yesterday my phone started breaking right before my eyes. Firstly, the speaker stopped working so I can't hear any sounds unless I've got headphones in. Then, without warning, the screen started coming off from the rest of it. This morning, I was fully expecting to find it disintegrated on the floor beside me, but no, it was still intact – but the speaker was still knackered so I didn't hear the alarm.
