As well as having made some mistakes at crucial points in season’s over the last decade or so, and hitting a patch of poor form just when we needed to push on, Arsenal have been beset by some rotten luck along the way that has hampered, if not completely ruined, our hopes of once again being crowned as the champions of England. The same sort of thing could well happen again. We have already had a number of injury problems, and a referee that, with a few key decisions in the Potteries, turned what should have been a welcome win away to Stoke City into a painful defeat that rocked the Gunners back before the season had really got going.
However, I just feel that the tide has been turning in our favour and if it does not turn back it could signal the start of something big for Arsenal FC. Slowly but surely the team has been getting stronger and looking more of a unit and the points have been coming. Arsene Wenger’s side is currently priced at 40/1 to win the EPL, and considering we are only 6 points behind the leaders the odds look extremely generous with only a quarter of the season gone. You can even get up to 7/4 on us getting the Wenger trophy! In fact you could get the best prices on the market if you sign up to Bethub samvo as they do all the hard work for you.
Why do I think these Arsenal bets are worth doing? Well, we have even started to have a bit of luck and it is our rivals rather than us being hit with injury problems to key players. We have a little run of games that should see us into the top four and in touch with the top, and also perhaps into the next round of the Europa League and the Carabao Cup before the trip to Man City at the start of next month.
Even that has been a bit lucky for us with City being without their star striker Sergio Aguero for the game, so am I being too optimistic or do you think the tide has turned for Arsenal? And where will that leave us?
Surely, as Arsene Wenger has only failed once in 21 years to get us into the Top Four we should at least be confident about that?
