Second week of Premier League (@premierleague) action is in the books.
Arsenal (@Arsenal) finished with a convincing 1-3 victory over Fulham (@FulhamFC).
It was a fine result with the Gunners facing heavy scrutiny these days.
Aaron Ramsey (@aaronramsey) – a terribly frustrating player over the past few seasons – is really beginning to hit his stride and was, again, one of the best players on the pitch.
The Shawcross injury seems long behind him now.
Giroud (@_OlivierGiroud_) scored and had another fine performance. Cazorla (@19SCazorla) was creating space to beat the band.
The out of favour Podolski (@Podolski10) also made the most of his first start of the year by bagging a brace.
And is it just me, or is Rosický looking great out there? Definitely one of the unsung regulars who is constantly injecting a bit of much needed pace.
This afternoon, we look to finish off Fenerbahçe (@Fenerbahce) and progress to the group stage of Champions League play, having dominating the first playoff leg in Turkey with an 0-3 result.
If you have yet to figure it out, Gooner talk will usually preface these fantasy posts.

Week Two was generally positive, albeit somewhat lackluster after a great Saturday.
I moved up in both games but the scoreless result between United (@ManUtd) and Chelsea (@chelseafc) caused me to fall a little by Monday evening.
How great was it to see Cardiff (@CardiffCityFC) get the best of City (@MCFC)?
Here’s how I made out:
Total Points: 131
Fans of Arsenal: 8,704
Private League: 3 / 16 (12 pts out of 1st)

Total Points: 214
Fans of Arsenal: 4,529
Private League I: 2 / 8 (2 pts out of 1st)
Private League II: 3 / 6 (60 pts out of 1st)

Gained a little in the official game and slipped in the Yahoo! version.
I can never seem to get the best out of that traitorous scum van Persie (@Persie_Official) in the fantasy game.
I tend to miss him when he scores big and pick him when he does nothing.
Talk about a failed captain pick.. he gave me a total of 2 points!
I also overspent on Shaw (@Luke_shaw3) thinking the Saints (@SouthamptonFC) would have the clean sheet locked up.
I’ll get ’em next week!
How’d you do in Gameweek 2?
