On a weekend in the Premier League dominated by the petulant toddler in West London the Arsenal went quietly about their business dispatching a decent Swansea team with a minimum of fuss. The dull first half saw an Arsenal squad, struggling with injuries, keep Swansea at bay and then in a more urgent second half display convert three chances to take maximum points and retain our second place position. It was the sort of display that tells you a lot about our current mind set: that of getting on with it effectively, humbly and pretty confidently.

This was the sort of game that at this time of the season has typically given us problems but the nature of our display prompted that giant of Football punditry Jermaine Jenas to tip us for the League Title. But let us not get carried away, let us stay humble and see what the next run of League games brings, and to be fair the fixture computer has been kind to us.  Who knows, maybe this season we need not beware the ides of November and with injured squad members to return for the end of 2015 and the start of 2016 we could be in a very healthy position. Wouldn't it be something if Jermaine Jenas was right? that's not something I ever thought I would write.

Views, opinions and that...
