Everyone seems to be saying that this is the year for Arsenal. And if the Gunners do not win it this time then we will have blown the best chance for years and might not get another for some time. But hold on a minute here, why us? Why is it not a great chance for Man City, Man United or Leicester?
There have been some very unexpected things happening in this topsy-turvy season but why is it that Arsenal are the ones that should be expected to rise above? Why is it that our injury list is not taken into consideration? It is not as if many in the football media have much belief in Arsenal after all.
I reckon they can hardly wait to be able to write about us blowing our chance but if I remember rightly they said the same thing a couple of years ago. Of course I hope that we do it this year but if not I am not buying in to this media garbage that we will not have another chance next season or the one after.
Why do they think that Man City, Chelsea, Liverpool, Man United and the spuds will get stronger next year and we won’t? Is it me or are the football press just piling pressure on Arsenal?
