2023 can end with a huge Irons bang

As it draws to its end David Moyes has been reflecting on the squad’s performances over then year and has every reason to be pleased. 2023 can end with a huge bang tonight if we can follow up a win over Manchester United by putting it across Arsenal who have yet to be beaten at home this term although they have been held to draws a couple of times.

Beyond the possible absence of Aguerd, the Irons look set to be at full strength whilst the Gooners are understood to be short of five injured players for a game which if we win or draw would see the  see the boys moving into sixth place above Manchester United.

Moyes believes we’ve been playing well, getting good results, and now we have to try and keep that going. We’ve had one blip, but the manager claims there were some reasons for that, and overall, we’re pleased.

Commenting on he said: ” We’re pleased that some of our individuals are getting a lot of recognition, but I’d rather talk about how well the team has been doing. The team performances have been really good over a long period and we’ve picked up a good amount of wins. 

In truth, we’ve had a good year. We improved greatly in our league performances in the second half of last season, we went on to win a trophy and we’ve started this season very well. Long may that continue. 

Teams all go through disappointments at different times but we’re really pleased with the progress we have made. We’ve had a good start to the season. We’ve got 30 points in the Premier League already, which is a good total for us at this time of year. We’re in a good position in Europe too, and we want to keep it going.

The good thing is I think we can play better and improve again. Hopefully, if we can do that, we can keep challenging the top teams.”
