The way that everyone is predicting that Arsenal’s season is already finished, you would think that we are all entering the final weeks of the campaign, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.
We are only two-thirds of the way through Premier League fixture list, we are set for a quarter-final game in the FA Cup against another non-League side, and we still have a small chance to keep our Champions League dream alive if we make an amazing comeback at the Emirates in a weeks time, although, as Sir Chips Keswick says, we have made it hard for ourselves. He wrote in a statement: “Everyone, including Arsene, our players, board and staff share our fans’ disappointment at out first leg result against Bayern Munich but we will approach the second leg with professionalism and a desire to reclaim pride.
“Unity has always been one of Arsenal’s strengths as a club.
“We are very focused on producing a positive and exciting closing run and with the support of our fans I believe we can achieve a successful and memorable end to the season.”
“At the time of writing, we sit in fourth place in the league and, with thirteen games remaining, there is everything to play for,” he added.
“We have progressed to the Sixth Round of the Emirates FA Cup and will compete to bring home silverware in this competition for the third time in four years and what would be a record-breaking thirteenth FA Cup trophy.”
Can you imagine if we DID beat Liverpool next weekend and then beat Bayern 4-0 four days later? And then if we cruised past Lincoln into the FA Cup semi-finals? Would everyone be then clamouring for Wenger to sign his new two-year contract?
