I am not saying that Arsenal should be rubbish and never win the Premier League, or that we should fail to win an FA cup game at home and have to squeeze an unwanted replay into an already congested fixture list and then have that game go into extra time which we would then lose just as the penalty shoot out was looming. That is an example set by Liverpool that we should definitely not follow.
It will be a hugely disappointing summer for Arsenal fans and everyone connected with the club, except maybe silent Stan Kroenke and his bean counters, if we do not end this current campaign as Premier League title winners. But at least it will not mean that Arsenal lose our superstar striker Alexis Sanchez.
I suggested a while ago that Arsenal needed to start the Brazilian centre back Gabriel next to Laurent Koscielny a bit more, in order to get the defender up to speed and the central defensive pairing settled in preparation for the very difficult looking double header against Barcelona in the Champions League.
Jamie Vardy has bee the striking sensation of the season, since coming up through the lower leagues to help Leicester to the top of the Premier League. Now they have their most crucial top of the table game at the Emirates this weekend, and he says that him and his team simply don’t think about any pressure involved.
There were extensive Arsenal transfer rumours linking the Gunners to Sporting Lisbon’s brilliant midfielder William Carvalho in the summer before he was cruelly injured playing for Portugal in the U21 World Cup.
