    I believe we were in second place prior to this weekend’s games. I believe we were tied on points and goal difference with Man$ity, so perhaps goals for was what had lifted us. So, we did drop 1 place on the weekend.

    @Gord, yes Man City scored more goals than us and so moved ahead of us. I hope our loss against Chelsea isn’t going to haunt us at the end of the season. Next game is on Thursday evening in the Continental Tyres Cup against Bristol City. Kickoff is 19:30, then on Sunday we host Liverpool also at Borehamwood in a 14:00 kickoff, a game where our goal difference should improve as Liverpool are struggling at the foot of the table.

    Miedema now on 53 goals for Arsenal in 51 games, after the weekend I wouldn’t be at all surprised if she wasn’t on 57 plus in 53 games, assuming she starts both matches.

    I was at the game with a family group and it was a lovely atmosphere and a very interesting and enjoyable game . Tottenham are a new entrant to the WSL so there is a reason why their rise has been charted and they played well in the first half.
    Montemurro showed a lot of tactical acumen in changing things around in the second half and we ran out comfortable winners. I agree tgat the big derbies should be played at Ashburton Grove .
    In a nod to the next article we changed our coach , getting a better one and it has driven the club forward . He is an excellent tactician and an upgrade on his Spanish predecessor just as Wenger was on Rioch who did a solid job

      Henry I agree about our coach, and you may have seen my report on his appearance at the AISA meeting. But my point is not that changing the coach never helps. It does in 20% of the time in the Premier League (I’ve not analysed it in the women’s league), but 80% of the time it makes matters worse.
      The media are really pushing for a new coach for the men’s team at Arsenal, and they have a long tradition of knocking Arsenal. I am sure a lot of journalists know perfectly well what sort of outcome the statistics show there is likely to be.

    Thanks for your reply. Changing the manager is a risk if you can’t improve on him but most fans are pretty certain we can, In fact Montemurro impressed me much more than Emery. Rioch to Wenger, Rodgers to Klopp, Puel to Rodgers we’re all risks. You need the right people to make tge decisions not stay with a failing manager because change is a risk. That way lies mediocrity
