Well how about that? A minor blip at the end to make it 6-1, but apart from that it was a perfect start to our season. Fabregas scored 2 goals and got 2 assists. Denilson scored a very good finish from outside the box, headers from centre backs Vermaelen & Gallas and a late goal from Eduardo made up the goals.

It was a great day and great to see so many of you reaching out on Twitter to discuss the game as it happened.

I hope you all profitted from the £50 free bet betfair gave our visitors also to make it an even better day 🙂

So, we ask you…who was man of the match? Please vote above and leave some comments below to say why you think the player you voted for was the man of the match. Some very decent performances today so it might not be as obvious as you may think.

I look forward to hearing from you all.

  • For me it was Fabregas even though Song was a close second. Fabregas scored 2 and got 2 assists also. His second goal in particular was very impressive. He drove forward, showed the hunger to drive at the Everton defence and bravery in having a go from that far out. A great start to the season…I am absolutely loving it.

    Oh My Freakin Days!! It was just like watching the arsenal of the invincible era. The removal of adebayor and toure has done wonders!!! We have not played like that for long long while. Everything clicked. Everyone played amazing but for me the man of the match had to be Alex Song. Where the hell did this ability come from. He has steadily been improving from last season and has started the new campaign with a bang. Hands of City… he’s ours!!!!

    • Indeed he was very nimble on the ball. He looked so confident going forward with the ball, breaking up the play and he seems to have presence. I liked him over the last few months of last season and from todays performance (I don’t want to jump the gun!) he seems to have continued his progress over the summer.

      Lets hope he can keep that up all season and take his place like Flamini did.

      Great start. Great day.

    And Vermalean. Damn, he the new Vidic, boy!!!!!!

    • Vermaelen did look very composed on the ball, good in the air (even though he isn’t huge) and he looked like he read the game well.

      However, it was only one game so lets see how things pan out over the next month or so. It was very encouraging though. Great stuff!

    Arsene Wenger 🙂

  • Fabregas for me too. Had something of a quiet season last year (for him anyhow) so I’m glad he’s coming back to his best – quite fantastic – form.

    Anyone who seriously thought Arsenal wouldn’t be in the top 4 this season must think twice now!

    First game. One win. 3 points. Consitency is the key. They must concentrate for the next 36 games.

    Song for me. Although, I think Fabregas, Vermaelen, Bendtner and Gallas did extremely well.

    We have been crying out loud for a Defensive minded midfielder and Song has really stepped up to the challenge since the last 2-3 months of previous season. Really happy about his performance.
