heard this for all of 2022/2023. And while Arsenal didn't ultimately win, they were still good for the second place having played the same fixtures across the season as everyone else.They have had a very easy start to the season and not looked convincing.
It's not a crazy idea that they might struggle Vs stronger teams.
But back to this season,
Home Nott Forest - easy
Away to CP - who do well against other big 6 players and is known to be a tough place to go to
Home to Fulham - People tend to underestimate Fulham who aren't bottom feeders anymore, MS has done well to get them performing.
Home to Utd - I'd better not say anything here
Away to Everton - where Arsenal has not won for several years now.
but yes, let's continue with the narrative of an easy start.
i concede the team hasn't looked convincing though, if we use their game play from last year as a bench mark. That said, they have demonstrated some solid team work even at this early stage. (eg: defending with their lives despite being a man down)
if anything, they are demonstrating memories from yesterday of all the control in the world, with not much end product. at least, they've grinded out some results.
