The word 'relentless' was used by Arsene Wenger after the game last night, and I think it was a good choice of word. Arsenal WERE relentless and Newcastle couldn't live with them. The intensity, the resilience and the quality were all there in abundance last night, and it showed what a very good side this Arsenal team can be on their day.
Things just seem to be going for us at the moment, and it's one of those rare times as a football fan where this is happening for your team. And it's great. Even when we went one nil down last night, I immediately still felt confident that we would turn it around. And that equalising goal straight away summed us up at the moment.
The team just came out of the blocks from the first whistle and showed Newcastle no mercy. It was great to see from an Arsenal fan's point of view. I liked how the intensity and pace of our game has increased in recent weeks, and I believe this has been a big factor in our recently superb form. The pace of our attacking is quite irresistable and
But there are other times, like the second half against Tottenham and last night, where he looks unstoppable. His pace is a priceless asset, but he seems to be using it much better now. His crosses into the box and decision making last night were top class. He set up two goals and might have set up more had it not been for poor finishing from other players. He was all over the place, top class and deserved his man of the match award. Let's hope he can just add consistency to his game and keep this form going. He could be a massive weapon for Arsenal in the closing stages of the season.
