Arsenal have remained at the top of the Barclay’s Premier league for yet another consecutive weekend, making this season the best start we have had since the last title winning season of 2003/04. And it’s very much the unbeaten run that we are currently on that has put us in this position in the league, again quite similar to that very same season.
Now in no way am I even suggesting I am expecting a repeat of Arsenal’s unbeaten season of 2003/04, bearing in mind that isn’t even possibly anymore after the loss against Villa on the opening day, but what certainly is possible is for Arsenal to continue their high run of form and keep these pleasing performances going as long as possible.
Aside from the Aston Villa game, Arsenal have played extremely well in every other competitive match this season, although we couldn’t manage all three points at The Hawthorns this Sunday just gone, but it certainly doesn’t mean our hopes are over.
This impressive run of form is largely down to the entire squad and the fact that the whole team has been performing consistently well, however a few players in particular are the standout candidates. Olivier Giroud and Mesut Ozil have both been very impressive, but I think Welshman Aaron Ramsey is certainly the most impressive player in form at the moment and his performances have now been recognised by the FA and league management itself with the news that Aaron Ramsey has been awarded the Barclay’s Premier League player of the month.
Ramsey has been very consistent and effective in every aspect of his game so far this season, whilst obviously his goals make up for a large part of this. Goals in both the Champions League and Premier League have shown his importance to the team so far this season and considering the past he has had at Arsenal, I think this award will certainly mean a lot to the midfielder.
Of course Le Professor, Arsene Wenger, also has a lot to do with the success of the season so far with Arsenal and it’s because of him that we still have a great chance of possibly being challengers for the title this season. Wenger has remained unbeaten for the whole of September, and will certainly look to continue that statistic onto October as well, however for now he should be congratulated on his success for September and as a result he too has received an award from the League as manager of the month.
Hopefully both members will continue their great association with Arsenal whether that be on the pitch or on the team’s management, and maybe just if we are lucky, we could be well on our way to gaining success for Arsenal once again!
