While Arsenal fans can console themselves with the fact that the season has just begun and there is plenty of time to bounce back and mount a challenge for the Premier League title, just as Chelsea did last season after a poor start that culminated in us beating them 3-0 at the end of September, it is hard to muster up much optimism about the Gunners right now.
Do any of us really believe, for instance, that Arsene Wenger can turn a team around as Antonio Conte did last season following our comfortable victory? This low point feels bad but I think it is only going to get worse before it gets better and to add a nice cherry on top of our cake of disappointment this week we saw all our main rivals bar the spuds win their games.
It is going to take some sort of miracle from Wenger and the Arsenal players to turn this poor start around but miracles are not in our make up are they? Mistakes maybe, and plenty of them, but miracles? I can already hear the rival fans laughing at us, because the idea of Arsenal winning the title this season already looks silly. In fact, has it already become something of a joke?
