Arsenal vs. Aston Villa: 5 Talking Points on the Gunners' Thrilling Victory

All bright and good

A few could have predicted the outcome of this match at halftime. Arsenal were down by two goals. Mild boos accompanied their recess to the dressing room.

Whatever halftime talk Arsene Wenger gave the team in the dressing room worked. There was a marked difference in the team's approach to the game and in its movement in the second half.

The team not only dug itself out of the two-goal hole, they topped it with a third, the match winner. No boos accompanied the team at full-time. Cheers prevailed.

"Keep the Faith," read one banner on resumption. A timely message, one that Gooners of all stripes could do well to keep in mind.

Five points follow in the slides. They recap the match and provide a forum for discussion. I welcome your thoughts in the comments section.

If you are Gooner, then congratulation on a remarkable victory. If you are not, your thoughts are still welcome.
