A POSITIVE outlook on the current situation. by AP
If you are looking to read an article about how dire the situation is at Arsenal, how Wenger should be fired, how Ramsey is killing our team, how Theo is the invisible man; read every other piece on Arsenal over the last week. I get it. Frustrations are high. We feel like a title is within our grasp, so the fact that we haven’t closed our hand on it (or even begun to move the fingers) confuses and angers us. All the signs were pointing to this is our year, and what if it isn’t?
But what if it is?
There is in fact still a light at the end of the tunnel. For as much as we want to tear this team down, the truth remains that they have put themselves in a position to compete for three trophies. Look at the other top teams in the league this year. We sit in a more enviable spot than all of them. Would you trade our current situation for that of Man U? City? or Chelsea?
The truth is that it has been a crazy year. The league winner will likely claim the title with the least amount of points in Premier League history. It’s speaks to the parity of this season, but also to the craziness of the year that Leicester City sits atop the table while Chelsea are in 10th.
It’s hard to overly judge at this stage because the season isn’t complete. If we win the league this pain and frustration will all be part of the journey. So until the final act is complete, lets believe. Let’s believe this team can still spark to life, that we can score goals. Let’s believe there is magic left, that there is heart, fight, and desire. Let’s believe that this is still our year!
Bring on the Spuds!!!
