With the annoying 6-week break for the SWC (Sports-washing World Cup), I figure we need a place to discuss team and current player news and notes (not related to SWC) until the match thread for Boxing Day is posted. Suffice to say, there isn’t much to complain about from our performance so far, other than to worry what the long break will do to our form and continuity the rest of the season. Hard to recognize a single “top performer” so far this season, but perhaps this the place to dole out some awards if y’all feel that’s appropriate. One interesting stat I just read on F365: The Arsenal have trailed less than an hour so far the entire season, and trailed in only two games (H-Fulham, A-ManU). If we continue in this area alone, I really like our chances to maintain this level of success.
