Of course I was as delighted as any Arsenal fan when we took the Chelsea team and their new manager Antonio Conte to the cleaners on Saturday, for all sorts of reasons. It was a long overdue win over our London rivals and it was a superb performance from the lads all over the pitch.
It was also a big win over a club that was one of the pre-season favourites for the Premier League, so after three games in a row that the Gunners recorded a big win it was perhaps inevitable that we Arsenal fans started to think of the title.
However, I think it is way too soon for that and it would be a good idea for everyone connected with the club to keep their feet on the ground. For one thing we should have learned a valuable lesson from last season’s champions Leicester City as they constantly played down their title hopes and took one game at a time.
As well as that, though, we should remember that it was only a few weeks ago when it was all doom and gloom about Arsenal. After two games you would have thought the season was over by some people’s reactions (or overreactions) and not many were interested in Wenger’s comments about it being too early to panic.
In the same way I think we should not overreact now after a few good performances and results. It has been very encouraging and good to see the Gunners playing well and winning but let’s just wait and see if we can keep it up shall we?
