Arsenal Have a Bright Future! by Ryan
Optimistic Arsenal Fan:
After every good performance, we Arsenal fans find ourselves singing on the rooftops and are ready to take the league by storm. We are the most extreme fans in the football world, but we’re proud of that, right?
Though Arsenal are having a terribly unconvincing season, I am still very optimistic about the club’s future. Aside from Walcott and Sagna, Arsenal are not at risk of losing any players. We have the stadium pretty much paid off, and are bringing in nothing but profits. We are finally being handed the type of money the board has been promising us for years.
We don’t have to fear losing a Van Persie, Fabregas, Nasri, Song etc. We have a solid group of good players. All that’s left to do is add the players that we need. We can only go up from here! Even if Walcott and Sagna leave, they play in positions that are arguably easy to replace. I do think they will both sign new contracts though. I believe that when Henry comes in January (Loan or for training) he will convince Walcott to sign a new deal.
Our team is obviously not as strong as it once was, but with a few good additions I firmly believe we can be at the top of the league again. We arguably have the best midfield in the premiership, and that’s with Arteta playing out of position. Our defense is shaky and low in confidence, but good results will change that. Our front line needs improving, but I’m sure we can all quickly create a list of players that would improve our attack.
It’s hard times to be an Arsenal fan, but lets not be close-minded. We are not in as bad as a situation as it seems. We are 5th in the Premier League. We are still one of the most prestigious teams in the world. We certainly have the quality to finish in the top 4, especially if we strengthen in January. I am confident we will finish in the top 4, with substantial funds to strengthen in the summer. This can be the first summer transfer window that we can buy players without worrying about losing our stars. We will shop for quality additions, NOT replacements.
Have faith my friends. All is not doom and gloom in North London. Lets get behind our beloved Arsenal and cheer them on to victory! COYG
