Jesus is just alright

The end is in sight. Sunday was the first of 12 matches to close out Arsenal’s Premier League season. Many of us expected Fulham to be a sterner test, with The Cottagers sitting in 7th place.

But the Gunners swept them aside handily, with goals from Gabriel, Martinelli, and Ødegaard, and new boy Trossard having the run of the pitch, becoming the first player in Premier League history to have 3 assists in the first half of an away game.

Another buoyant crowd at Maggie’s but no rest for celebrants as Arsenal have their 2nd Leg Europa League match against Sporting CP and then Crystal Palace on Sunday.

Let us know if you’ll make it on our the Bay Area Gooners Facebook page.


Equally exciting as the the Gunners victory was the return of Gabriel Jesus, injured in the World Cup and out for 4 months. Jesus looked bright, setting up Reiss Nelson for a chance and having a decent attempt of his own saved.

Hopefully he will provide the necessary spark to get us over the finish line. Maggie’s will show both our Thursday Europa League match as well as Sunday’s league match.

Hope to see you Sunday at Maggie’s for our match against Palace!

Best, Mark
