Arsenal 1 City 0

So the bid to extend our 100% start to the season stalled at The Emirates as (another) late goal from Arsenal sent us away empty handed points wise, but gaining a few more plaudits for the manner of our performance.

Catching the game later that evening on Football First it looked like we were fairly neat in our build-up play and movement, and once again were sound at the back - with the Dunne-Richards partnership earning rave reviews, but perhaps we looked a bit of a cutting edge or sharpness up front with Mpenza preferred to Bianchi.

There is definitely plenty of potential with this side, and whilst Eriksson has put together an impressive overhaul of the squad could he be tempted to add one, possibly two new faces before the deadline this week to perhaps achieve more than was expected coming into the season?
