My dream for Arsenal’s Season by MFH
After Tuesdays defeat to Dinamo Zagreb, every pundit and fan alike were speaking like the world was ending for Arsenal, but now after that fantastic win against Man United people have changed their minds and are being positive again. That’s because fans and people that work as pundits and journalist all have short term memories when it comes to football.
We beat Leicester 2-5 just a week before but people had already forgotten that before the United game. I feel like we should keep things in perspective, both in good times and bad – and have some long range goals. We need to look ahead and not go all ‘Wenger out’ one week and then be over the moon and praising the team and manager the next.
Of course people get angry and frustrated when things go wrong and then they celebrate when it’s going well. Thats just human nature. All I am saying is that people should look far ahead, and know that as long as we keep within some points range with whoever is leading the table, we should be satisfied.
For me personally I know that, come May, Arsenal will be in the top four, along with Man City and most likely Man United. On the 7th of May in the 37th round, we play Manchester City away. All I hope for is that when that time comes Arsenal are still in the running for the title, and I don’t even expect us to win, all I want is a real title challenge all the way.
I don’t want to fight for fourth place, I want to be awake all night before that game restless knowing that a result there might result in a league title for the Gunners. In that case a win or loss there means we at least had a run for our money, that’s my hope and dream for this season.
