Well, three games into the season and still not a single goal. Not a single goal conceded that is! For the third straight game Arsenal has held its opponent goalless. At this point last season, we had conceded ten I believe. Okay, so maybe we don't really need Alex Song in the midfield. I must say, I was impressed by how solid the team looked against what should have been a tougher opponent in Liverpool.

Brad Evans play as a right mid started a little while ago. It was due to the strong play of Andy Rose and the benching of Fredy Montero and then just continued, except for those times when he was used at right back or at center mid. He's even popped up at left mid for a bit. There was a theory, one I really wanted to be true because I like fun tactical stuff and I like how Evans plays, that he was now being used as a roving midfielder.
