Hail The Captain!

leave a comment »

The English Premier League starts today, and it’s an emphatic start to the season.

Having to play Everton in their own field, and going against all odds for this season, with all the rumours and craps especially about Manchester Shitty going to topple Arsenal this season, it was difficult to see the light of the day. But deep inside i know we are going to win this, comfortably.

What a way to win a game, what more, winning confidently comfortably in the first game of the season!


Many aspects being unfolded coming to this game, firstly the new 4-3-3 formation, secondly the defensive department of Arsenal as a whole, thirdly the captain, fourthly the debut of Thomas Vermaelen, and lastly the comeback of Eduardo.

I am happy! 🙂

1) 4-3-3 Formation

It worked well! It was a bit worry of how Denilson and Bendtner going to be in this game, but after 10-15 minutes, it became clear that Bendtner playing the attacking role on the right side which he did amazingly good comparing with his own standard last season, and Denilson is being a good distributor much like last season.

Fabregas, my favourite player of course, as usual with his sharp pinpoint pass, and positioned a bit deeper, a position which he likes anyway, playing more of a holding midfield + usual long passes.

Arsenal were playing much to the fluidity, and approach almost similar to the 2003/2004 Invincibles Season, which i have been waiting for all these years, furthermore, it is added by the complex 1 touch passing that were practiced for the last few season.

2) Defensive Department

2nd Half of Last season attacking was already superb, and the only weak-link is the defensive department, but not this season!

The new boy Thomas Vermaelen did very well, only 6 ft height, people already criticize him even before he was bought by AW (Arsene Wenger). But he played brilliantly, smart defensive moves, and smart play by him.

Sagna and Clichy are reliable as ever.

My oh My, Gallas was very good. I am very happy.

3) Hail The Captain: Cesc Fabregas.

What a man! Becoming a first-team regular at 17 years old, taking Arsenal to Final Champions League 2006 at 19 years old, Appointed as Arsenal Captain & Winning the prestigious EURO 2008 at 21 years old & at 22 years old begin the start of the 2009/2010 season with a Bang!

2 Assists (as he usually does) & 2 Goals against an Full Squad Everton side at Goodison Park at the start of the season. The run from below the half-line till just outside the box and unleashing the shot was just amazing! Maybe i’m just overenthusiastically exaggerating it but it’s just that!

4) Debut of Thomas Vermaelen

Playing well, good tackles, good slides, good block, good interception, good clearance, good anticipation. He is a great buy at 10mil, maybe too early to say that,but im confident enough!

As a bonus for him, he scores at debut with a lovely powerful unmarked free-header.

5) I’m Back!, says Eduardo.

He is back and he is sharp, and he scores a goal. It looks as if he never had that fracture of tibia & fibula before. Welcome back Eduardo, we miss you so much!

Watch the Arsenal Pledge by Nike Advertisement. It’s going to be a great season ahead!
