Arsenal won’t score a pair of luckier goals this season, but they deserved their luck. The Premier League side outclassed Celtic – Tony Mowbray’s team didn’t play that badly but ran out of steam – and will surely now finish the job at the Grove and progress through to the CL’s group stage.
Celtic, and their vociferous supporters, tried to intimidate Arsenal but failed. Gooners should take great heart from the fact that their team has taken on two very physical teams in their back yard and come away with clear wins.
It’s too early to predict that Wenger’s side will conquer all in 09/10 but there is a growing feeling that his team has finally matured. Of course, one or two key injuries will change all that but now’s not the time to be negative – even as a Spurs fan, I don’t mind admitting that I enjoy watching this Arsenal side.
