That Nasri looks like the real deal.
Thrashing a team, 4-0, as a follow-up to an embarrassing defeat puts a little spring back in our step doesn't it?
Don't get me wrong, Twente is not a team that should test us, and I'm not thinking we're ready to talk silverware just yet but it builds confidence, especially for guys who seem to need it more than others, like Walcott - and a confident Walcott is a threat to any defense facing us.
We're clearly a different team with Fabregas on the pitch.
Van Persie is wasting space in front of the goal at the moment - hope he breaks out soon.
And the question that seems to be on everyone's mind - "Where the hell is Carlos Vela?"
After the match, I switched over to lucky Liverpool, who squeaked through by the skin of their teeth - if there's a luckier team in Champion's League I'd like to know who it is.
Just saw the draw - at least we avoided Roma, again.
Good for my friendship with Danny at least...
The away games will earn some frequent flier miles as Arsenal travels to Turkey, Ukraine and Portugal.
Let's come out blazing against Newcastle this weekend.
