September saw Arsenal open there account in the champions league group stage,a 3rd round tie against Swansea in the carling cup and 4 league games that could push them towards the top of the league early on in the campaign.

Arsenal hosted West Ham at the Emirates on the 1st September, and the first half saw a steady game from Arsenal who broke the deadlock through a Lukas Podolski strike in the 38 min. The 2nd half saw much more of the same from Arsenal with Santi Cazorla slotting a 2nd home after 2 mins, from then on West Ham were blown back and Podolski provided Arsenal fans with a master class scoring 2 quick goals in the 61 and 68 min earning him the match ball and his team a 4-0 win.

Liverpool were next, with a trip up to Anfield being the first real challenge for Adams since his appointment at the club and it was a fairly boring match seeing both teams happy to sit back on a 1-1 draw to take a point, Podolski scoring for Arsenal.

It was then off to Portugal to face P.Ferreira in the opening game of the group, Arsenal completely dominated heading into the half time break 4-0 up thanks to Podolski, Cazorla and a Giroud brace. Arsenal relaxed in the 2nd half conceding a late consolation goal finishing the game 4-1.

Arsenal then hosted Villa in a close encounter which saw villa have 2 goals disallowed in the last 5 mins. Securing a tight 2-1 victory for the Arsenal Ozil and Podolski the scorers.

Then it was for the 3rd rnd of the Carling cup with Arsenal looking for revenge over Swansea for the defeat last month and they didn't fail to provide with a comfortable 2-0 win with new signing Subotic and Oxlade-Chamberlain grabbing the goals.

Arsenal then travelled to Newcastle hoping to round of a good month with another 3 points, but it wasn't to be they were completely outplayed from the off going down 3-1, Giroud scoring the only goal. Adams Was heard shouting at his players in the changing room after the game with Mesut Ozil apparently being pointed out for his poor performance.
