Arsenal Defeat Borussia Dortmund on the Road - Aaron Ramsey Continues to Roll

Wednesday, November 5, 2013 2:45PM EST Arsenal at Borussia Dortmund Champions League Match Day 4

When articles appear with headlines such as this one below, it's easy to see why Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp is gaining admirers throughout football. While it's great to see Wenger and Arsenal getting such high praise, it's hard not to be cynical and think that Klopp is really trying to get inside the head of the club prior to the teams' meeting tonight in Germany.

Arsenal are better to watch than Barcelona and Arsene should be SIR Wenger, claims Jurgen Klopp 

With Napoli, Dortmund and Arsenal all even on six points after three matches, tonight's game takes on MAJOR significance. 

Wow....what an amazing night for Arsenal...with almost everyone predicting Dortmund to easily defeat Arsenal, the Gunners silenced their critics with an impressive 0-1 victory. Once again the team's defensive performance was excellent and Arsenal kept Dortmund at bay throughout the match. 

In what's becoming a common theme, Ozil to Giroud to Ramsey, produced the game's only goal in the 62nd minute. Ozil's pass went to Giroud who expertly headed the ball in to the path of the oncoming Ramsey who slotted home. Ramsey is having a season to remember and is rewarding Arsene Wenger for never losing faith in the player.

Of course Arsenal haters that predicted a drubbing at the hands of Dortmund still won't give the club credit. Before the match the haters lauded Dortmund as world beaters. After the match, the haters claimed Arsenal were lucky and Dortmund were just ordinary.

Results are what eventually will shut these folks up...prior to the Liverpool match last weekend the negative slant was that Arsenal hadn't beaten anyone of substance. To date, Arsenal have defeated the alleged title contenders Tottenham, Liverpool, Napoli and Dortmund. Next up is a trip to the home of Judas and the gold medalist in diving Ashley Young. #COYG
