Awesome Arsenal...


First match at the Emirates this season and it was a beauty.

3-0 to the Arsenal.

Arsenal were an absolute pleasure to watch as they totally outclassed and undressed Newcastle - it could have easily been 6-0 if it weren't for the exceptional Shane Given in goal.

It was a total team effort and Arsenal were back to their fluid, artistic style of attack.

The return of Fabregas might just have something to do with it.

This is the Arsenal I love.

Everyone got in on the action, even the awful Eboue looked good (and dare I say clever with that little shuffle and backpass to Van Persie to set up a nice sliding goal).

Just as I was dreaming up a new name for Van Rusty, he came storming back as Newcastle's worst nightmare.

I loved the camera cut to Newcastle's owner, Mike Ashley, chugging a full pint in the stands, sucking it absolutely dry as the despair piled on.

A perfect example of perfect football on Denilson's first ever Premier League goal:

Denilson wins a header in our half and passes to RVP...

Who passes to Nasri...

Who passes to Denilson...

Who passes to Ade...

Who passes back to Denilson on the run...

Who shoots between the defenders legs and past Shane Givens, who is so flabbergasted at this point he flops right on his back.

Brilliant stuff.

And, while I generally prefer a clean game, who couldn't help but smile when Nasri tripped the smirking and snarling Joey Barton, only moments after he tried a jailhouse tackle on Nasri.

I like this Nasri kid more and more every day...
