We all know that November is traditionally bad for Arsenal, but records are made to be broken and this is the Gunners year for doing just that. We broke our jinxes with Chelsea and also Southampton (and Swansea too) and there is no reason why we can’t beat the November jinx too!
Last year, November gave us two defeats, two draws and just one solitary win. 2014 gave us two wins two defeats and one draw. This season we have already had one win and three draws, but considering those were against PSG, Man United and Tottenham I don’t see that being a jinx at all!
After the PSG game Wenger was asked if he wished November was over, and he replied: “No…I believe that I have to be careful about the choice of my words because when I say ‘stuttering’ it comes back in the next press conference. Look, I think there is a special spirit in the squad and the consistency of the results… we are unbeaten for 18 games.
“Sometimes you go through a spell, when you have such a long momentum, where we win a bit less. It’s down to us to continue without losing a game but as well to transform the draws now into wins. But there is no reason to panic.”
And he right! All we have left of this month, is one home game against Bournemouth this coming weekend, and then the League Cup game at home to Southampton.
There is no reason why we can’t win both of them, which will make three wins and three draws from the supposedly Nasty November. I would have taken that in most months never mind this one!
So stop moaning everyone and get behind the team. By the end of the month we will also have gone 20 games unbeaten and will be on our way to the title!
