    Sweet are the uses of adversity

    Sweet are the uses of adversity

    Over the past year and a half, #NewArsenal have been through a lot. There have been (few) highs and (many) lows, but the true mark of a good team is how it manages each of them. This season has been no exception, and the past couple of weeks have seen the club hit a bit of a skid, but with experience comes patience. These are touch-and-go times for the Gunners' new management, but they've come so far, and with any luck, they'll be able to use those adverse circumstances as an opportunity to grow.

    Conscience doth make cowards of us all

    Conscience doth make cowards of us all

    The Premier League season rumbles on, and somehow, #NewArsenal have yet to concede defeat. Instead of enjoying the success of their experiment, though, its leadership seems determined that it's all going to come crashing down sooner rather than later. They've been snake-bitten by the same issues so many times over the past year that that's just what they've come to expect. They've even begun to wonder if their new squad is....cursed.

    be great in act, as you have been in thought

    Over a year into the #NewArsenal project, the fans are starting to get a little...antsy. The season has started well enough, but there's a sense around the club that things could go south at any time. There won't be much room for error this time around, either--it's time for the new regime's plan to start yielding some results. It's one thing to have ideas on paper, but at the end of the day, this ownership group will be judged on how well they put it all into practice.

    The course of true love never did run smooth

    The course of true love never did run smooth

    As the new Premier League season begins, the hierarchy at #NewArsenal are starting to catch feelings for the club they've been running for the past year. All of the time and effort they've put into getting to know the Arsenal has made them see things a little differently, but if the papers are to be believed, the feeling isn't mutual...yet. They've got a new season in front of them to win the club over, but if they can't make it happen, they may be in for a nasty breakup pretty soon.

    Though this be madness, yet there is method in it

    Though this be madness, yet there is method in it

    As the Premier League season approaches, the higher-ups at #NewArsenal continue to search high and low for new recruits. Their unconventional methods continue to draw criticism, but no matter what the #haters say, they're staying the course. It may look like madness from the outside, and at the end of the day it may very well be so--but there is a method, and they're sticking to it.

    To thine own self be true

    To thine own self be true

    After spending their (less than successful) first season doing their best to please everyone else, #NewArsenal are determined that this year, they're going to do things THEIR way. Is it going to be popular with the fans? Probably not. But they're *pretty* sure it's going to work, and at the end of the day, they'll sleep better knowing that they were true to themselves, win or lose. Preferably win, though.
