Arteta: we can get betta


Mikel Arteta believes there’s still room for improvement after Arsenal’s 3-0 home win against West Brom today. The hunky Spaniard (come on, you know it’s true), scored the third goal to ensure the points, and while he says the things are getting better the team will be pushing to improve even more.

Speaking to the BBC after the game, he talked about the run the team was on, saying, “I think it’s a great run. The thing is we’re catching up so it’s always hard, you can’t make any more mistakes. We’re trying to improve everywhere, I think we’re doing it, and I think there’s space to improve even more so that’s probably the most positive thing.

“We played really well in the first half, scored 2 goals, could have scored more, and kept a good clean sheet and took the points. We’re really pleased because now we have a break and we can enjoy it”.

Arteta’s goal was reminiscent of Arsenal at their flowing best and the former Everton man was delighted to get his first goal at the Grove.

“It’s important because I said earlier in the week I wanted to contribute more to the attacking side. It’s always good to score goals and to score the third and help the team kill the game off, I’m very pleased.”

[…] the match, Artetainsisted that we still can improve. We can, and we have to, not in the aspect of scoring goals or defending, but rather in general, […]


The massive – bollocked goal – line block against Olympiacos started my Artetitis, but you can add the steaming finish against Blackburn, the controlled performances under the cosh away at Marseille and Chelsea, and now the finishing touch against West Brom. Top lad.

Arteta is one really hard working player. (Actually to be fair, all the new signings are.) Really great to see Mikel get the goal though, and a thing of classical Arsenal beauty it was too – a proper “Arsenal” goal. Brilliant stuff Mikel.

It is great to see this Arsenal team taking shape before our eyes.
