Time to Shine Arsenal FC! by SOH
I am usually one of the many Arsenal supporters that moans, gurns and complains about Wenger, the board, transfers, defeats, bad records etc… sometimes right, sometimes wrong but all of that doesn’t matter as we have bigger things to worry about on the pitch regardless of what happens behind the scenes, and things are not looking too bad I may add!
More recently we have started to show exactly what we can do with wins over Man Utd, Leicester and a very well organised Watford team, so credit where credit is due to them. The team are in a moment where we are playing really well in the EPL and look like real contenders, at the moment, to challenge for the title along with Man City and Man Utd. City still look good but it was a struggling injury hit Bournemouth who could have been leading, and should have had a penalty at 0-0. Who they were playing on Saturday? Not United who are up next, who are like us in a way and will be there come the end of the season. So it is a good game for us to take advantage of and beat Everton at the weekend to possibly go top – if United can beat City! I don’t think its unfair for Arsenal fans to maybe start believing that a 1st League title could end up at the Emirates this year to show alongside the 2 FA Cups and 2 Community Shields. Fans don’t count the Community Shield as a cup but it is, its exactly the same as Spains/Germanys Supercups, winner of league vs winner of domestic cup.
Next up… Champions League Game3 at Home vs BAYERN MUNICH. We have a huge uphill task in front of us this evening as we have no points, bottom of the group, and face one of the big contenders to go on and win the competition. Munich have been on fire goals wise and keeping a lot of clean sheets, breaking records etc… though on that topic of records, I think we broke a record vs Bayern in Munich last time did we not? First English team to Win in Munich, Allianz Arena! Now that gives us great belief that we can beat these guys and that was the treble winning Munich, regardless of the teams selection that night a win is a win in my book and in the record books!
Arsenal have stepped up a gear in the League and bang right on time for the vist of Bayern. I think our Gooners are going to come out firing on all cylinders to really have a go and try make these big games count. Wenger said it, 0-0 isn’t good enough and we have to attack… 100% Agreed! I’m quietly confident if we can win this game tomorrow night then history could well be about to repeat itself in Munich. The confidence a home win tonight will give our boys will be huge, and maybe give us an extra boost to crack on and have a great season.
We are not out of the Champions League just yet… Miracles are made and seen in football, Its now Arsenal Football Clubs time to shine!
Wish I was going to the game, but for the Gooners going to the Emirates… make that place Rock!!
