As my wonderful cable company wasn’t airing ESPN last night, I wasn’t able to watch this thrashing that Arsenal doled out to Everton. 6-1 is a wonderful start to the new season for Arsenal.
Denilson struck the first blow, followed by new signing Thomas Vermaelen, who doubled their lead with a header from a free-kick. William Gallas headed the third before two Cesc Fabregas goals made it 5-0. Gunners substitute Eduardo was on hand to tap in a late sixth before Louis Saha rolled in the most inconsequential of goals for Everton in injury time.
Ofcourse, this still does not negate the lack of world class material that Arsene Wenger was supposed to have signed but it’s a wonderful way to appease the loyal fans.
