Okay it is pretty u7nlikely that Arsenal will be the club that is celebrating a Premier League title win when the current season ends in May, but to listen to some Arsenal fans and football pundits we may as well give up now, because the Gunners are being given about as much chance as I have of sprouting wings and flying to the moon.
It is easy for the fans of any football club to get disheartened, and especially for Arsenal fans after last weekend’s disaster in Watford added to a long list of things we would rather forget but cannot. But we mst remember that football is peppered with examples of things not going as people expect.
Take the title win of Leicester City for an example, or Greece winning the European Championships, Nottingham Forest winning back to back European cups after being near the bottom of the second division the previous year (that still amazes me what Brian Clough and Peter Taylor did and if you have not seen the film about it called ‘I believe in miracles’ then do yourself a favour and get it watched).
Okay so back to the point and the chances of Arsenal winning the league…a few weeks ago Man United looked like world beaters but after today, not so good. A lucky point at Anfield followed by an even luckier win against Benfica set the scene, but a loss away to EPL new boys Huddersfield just shows what can happen.
Arsenal still need the impressive (so far) Man City to hit a serious wobble but they did it last season. We still need Arsenal to improve a lot as well but I reckon we are better chasers than leaders and we all know that on our day the Gunners can beat anyone, so let;’s have a bit of optimism shall we.
