Lots of intriguing storylines all around this coming season, including every game in which Arsenal plays a FAWSL team with players that left the club this offseason. That won't be hard to watch at all. First up for the Gunners title run, I'm remaining optimistic people, they'll take on Notts County Ladies FC, a team that's recently had a bit of drama in acquiring Canadian international Desiree Scott from the NWSL. Once all the fun starts this season we'll have previews and recaps of the games, so be sure to look forward to that.
Let's remember that Arsenal will have to take care of Birmingham City in March in the UWCL before they meet up in the FAWSL. Also worth mentioning is that Arsenal Ladies' Instagram has been on point as of late. You should give them a follow at arsenalladies. I assure you that you will gain only happiness from this.
Hopefully the season ends with Arsenal lifting the trophy pictured above, but if not one thing is for certain: we are going to have fun gosh darnit. What game are you looking forward to? Sound off in the comments.
