There is no doubt that the situation of Arsenal and us fans has improved recently, but I am not sure that all this positivity is going to do us much good and it could all soon evaporate sooner than a keg of beer on a hot summer day if the players do not push on from the West Ham win with another three points at Crystal Palace.
Arsene Wenger himself said this week that confidence and momentun was slow to build and quick to disappear. The Gunners are still very much in the rebuilding phase and we all hope that it carries on, but some of the recent noises from the likes of Walcott and Bellerin, not to metion the boss, have struck me as a bit premature after one win and a good second half against West Ham.
The simple fact is, however, that Arsenal have not been much good of late and we have to win because Manchester United won and so did all of the clubs above us. The fact that Tottenham are the only team putting up a challenge to Chelsea does not help, as we can rightly wonder why it is not Arsenal.
Sorry to be negative Gooners, and I hope that the players prove me wrong, but we are not even close to being out of the woods yet.
