Man City 0 Arsenal 2

At last. It’s been a rough ride for Arsenal fans, watching all this lovely intricate stuff, occasionally producing glorious moments and wonderful goals, but not consistently getting results. And there’s always the sinking fear that every time we meet a really good team, when it matters, we’ll be torn apart. Last season we were totally stuffed at Liverpool, Man City and Chelsea. But today, somehow, for once, we went to Man City and beat them, deservedly. Had a bit of luck, but worked for it, stuck together, didn’t collapse, and the mutual celebrations and congratulations the Arsenal players shared at the end spread out from the screen to envelope all us faithful fans out here. We’ve suffered long enough.
