Has pressure gotten the best out of the Arsenal squad and the manager? by KM
Hello everybody. First of all i want to bury the hatchet with everyone that felt bad about my articles here. Look I don’t want to offend anybody on this site and I feel that feeling insulted if someone has a different opinion than you is wrong. I read every article on this site and respect everybodys point of view on the questions about our beloved club.
A big shout out to Admin who provides the opportunity for all fans to express what they want to say in a fair manner. Last but not least if you do not like my articles, feel free to ignore them, but don’t blame JustArsenal who are doing a fantastic job, to allow every single one of us to tell his feelings of the club.
All I want is what is best for the club. I want us to win the league title. I see a platform for us to be up there with the very best. We are in the top 6-7 richest clubs in the world. We build a fantastic new stadium because every top club needs a top venue. The league is a rollercoaster. We have a great opportunity to capitalize on the problems the other teams have and have a real go.
Going back to what was probably the best win over United I have seen in a decade, you have to ask yourselves how did we manage to transform this way? I have my issues with Arsene but one thing he does is never let a crisis go on for too long. We are the crisis comeback kings! At some point something happens in Arsene’s head and we just spring back from the bottom of the ocean to sea level.
We are never rock bottom with Wenger, but we’re also short of the treasure island. So what can push us over to the shore of that league title we all so desperately desire? Is it the pressure? Wenger came under huge criticism leading to him threatening to leave a press conference. But in the end he came out fighting.
Some tabloids stated that Wenger raised his voice on the training ground and that did the trick. A kick on the backside and we came out firing on all cylinders. I mean did you see those 20 minutes. I was watching in disbelief how easily we destroyed United. I do believe LVG is not that special but take nothing away from what was a performance that will long be remembered in our hearts.
I remember an away game to Liverpool which we were losing 1-0 and we turned it 2-1 and in a post-match interview Fabregas said he never saw Wenger so angry at half time. Maybe a bit of shouting gives the needed motivation and desire? I don’t know, whatever the formula is, but put in a bottle, write it in a book and produce it over the course of a whole season.
It’s a shaky start for everybody in the league so if we stabilize and move onto that part of the season where we pick ourselves together and start putting those results on a daily basis, we’ll be in it with a real chance.
After the break if we survive the international injury storm, we have Watford away. The expectations will be back on us to perform like we did against United. Then it’s Bayern Munich. If we can repeat those 20 minutes, put Cech in goal, and it might be on. We literally have nothing to lose anymore.
Bayern have not lost a point so far and they swiped Dortmund with ease, but we might get a sneaky win against them. They’ll be huge favorites and they’ll try to dominate us and if we repeat the intensity of Sunday, we can hurt them. I think it’s nice that the Champions League puts only the champions in pot 1. This way we can face better opposition in the group stages and not take them too lightly.
We did a great recovery before the internationals. I’m happy and I believe we all are after that performance. Now it’s time to assess what we’ve done so far and where we can improve. There’s still all to play for. Enjoy.
