Arsenal fans are right to be upbeat by Sam P
There are always some in the English football media who will do anything to stop the Arsenal fans being happy about anything. Trophy drought, trophy drought, trophy drought was the most over-used phrase in football for years and with all the cliches used that is some going.
And after the Gunners spoiled their fun with a trophy last season, we hear all of a sudden that the FA cup is a second rate thing that no one really wants anyway. Arsenal are ridiculed for the so/called Wenger trophy but when any other club, as Chelsea, Liverpool and Man United have all done recently, drop out of Europe’s blue ribbon event then it is a disaster. Make your minds up!
So it is no surprise that somebody has found a stat intended to puncture our pride at the recent Arsenal performances and results that have seen us climb into second place above the big spenders Man City and Man United. As reported by The Mirror, the claim is that there has not actually been any improvement this season, because our records or points, wins and draws in the Premier League is exactly the same as last year’s after 31 games played.
This may be true but you only have to watch Arsenal play to see the improvement and we should not forget that we got off to a brilliant start last season. This time we have reached the same points despite a terrible start. We now have Alexis, Bellerin, Coquelin, Welbeck, Chambers, Gabriel and Ospina improving the squad and the first team. And we have now proved that we can compete in the big games.
So be happy Gooners because Arsenal are better this season and will be even more so next time.
