The Arsenal boss, perhaps in response to the comments of his managerial rival Man City about the prospect of Man City winning an unprecedented four trophies this season, has been talking up the chances of the Gunners matching the very rare achievement of clubs like Bayern Munich, Manchester United, Inter Milan and Celtic in winning the continental treble.
Arsene Wenger was understandably buzzing after Arsenal went to Greece and turned our Champions League record there on it´s head with a brilliant performance and a first Olivier Giroud hat-trick to consign Olympiacos to the Europa League and keep alive the Frenchman´s amazing record of reaching the knockout stage of Europe’s elite club competition.
Do not make a fuss about this Arsenal fans, Just hope that the Spanish champions keep thinking the way they do and that they do not look into Arsenal and what we have been doing over the last two years in too much detail. Because at the minute they seem to think that all they need to do to get into the Champions League quarter-finals is to turn up.
First of all I would, of course, love Arsenal to prove all the doubters and those hilarious social media warriors wrong by getting past the big favourites Barcelona and into the quarter-finals of the Champions League. I also believe that we are one of the clubs that could do it if we play at our best.
Okay so what are the anti Arsenal brigade in the football media going to accuse the Gunners of now? For years it was the lack of a trophy, as they blithely and ignorantly ignored the fact that Arsene Wenger had no money but was still managing to beat big spending clubs around us to the Champions League places.
