Following their shock home loss to West Ham United yesterday afternoon, our resident Arsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern haven’t known whether to laugh or cry.
While this was season was meant to be the one in which the Gunners start fast while really pushing Chelsea hard for the title, they’ve started it off in the worst possible fashion with even the likes of Petr Cech flattering to deceive when it really mattered.
Winning the Community Shield last week of course, Gooners everywhere were on cloud nine but they’ve been brought right back down to earth with a bump and considering Arsene Wenger’s men face Crystal Palace away next at a vociferous Selhurst Park, they’ll need to bring their A game far sooner than later.
Prior to the kick-off at Emirates Stadium yesterday, there was pretty much nobody expect for optimistic Hammers fans that were predicting a victory for Slaven Bilic’s men but in fairness to the men from East London, they were absolutely fantastic on the day and deserve all of the plaudits they’re receiving at the moment.
