The raucous crowd of Gooners who turned up last Sunday at Maggie’s were rewarded for their dedication, with sublime football, some defensive hiccups, a few nervy moments, and finally, a softer penalty than Arsenal are used to getting. But a win is a win is a win and when Saka calmly dispatched the match winner, the pub exploded.
We were graced by presence of Scott Willis, everyone’s favorite Arsenal statistician, and you can read his report here. Pundits are now taking notice that something might actually be happening at Arsenal. Even Roy Keane suggested Arsenal is City’s biggest challenge to the title.
But there’s another Europa League match tomorrow and Leeds on Sunday, so we reset our expectations as the Gunners go out and do it again.
On a personal non-Arsenal note, my wife Loryn (aka She Who Must Be Obeyed), is performing Friday night in North Beach with her duo, Gutter Swan, at The Lost Church. The newly relocated venue is located at Columbus and Chestnut. Links to their music and tickets to the show can be found here. Would be great to see some familiar faces there!
I won’t make it Thursday, but will see you at the pub on Sunday! And hopefully, Friday!
