Arsenal 1-0 QPR - Belatedly

Morning all....

I'm currently housesitting for a friend in deepest, darkest Warwickshire this week who doesn't believe in Wireless Internet so these blog posts will be brought to you by the good people at BTOpenzone which actually seems faster than my own home internet, which pleases me less.

It was good to win on Saturday and win in any way possible, a draw or loss would of plunged the confidence to record levels of low so although it wasn't vintage Arsenal, it was a win all the same.

Massive plus point has to be the return of Jack Wilshere, he looked as if he'd never been away, the verve of his passing, the directness of his running and the pinpoint vision is something the Arsenal midfield had needed, it had begun to look jaded and slow the past couple of games. Bacary Sagna returning is also a massive boost, no slight on Jenko but Sagna is one of the best right-backs in Europe and gave Arsenal an out on the right.

The goal was controversial, no doubt but you'll take these things when they are given to you.

This week will be full of Robin Van Persie as Arsenal go to Manchester United on Saturday, but before that it's COC duty and the away tie at Reading. Looking forward to seeing Thomas Eisfeld get his chance, he caught my eye in the U-21 win against Everton where he scored 2 goals and I have a feeling as I said in the summer that he will follow Gnabry in making the bench for first team games before the end of the season.

More tomorrow...
