I am in a very confident mood as our Arsenal team are in the best form I have seen them in since the Invincibles. We are the best performing and most consistent team in the whole of Europe in 2015 and there is no reason to think we will stop our progression. In fact, if anything, we are at least 50% better than we were at this stage last season.
I think it would have been really harsh on Arsenal if Everton had got anything out of the game, despite what Roberto Martinez said about out goals being soft and them having two very good chances to score late on. He seemed to have conveniently forgotten that we also hit the woodwork twice through Giroud and Ozil and that their own goal came from a lucky deflection.
Despite the heroics of the Arsenal team produced in beating the hot favourites Bayern Munich at the Emirates stadium on Tuesday night, our position in the Champions League is still a very precarious one. So when the Gunners arrive at Munich´s Allianz Arena in a couple of weeks, it will be in the knowledge that we need to get something from the game.
Arsenal fans may well be thinking `if only´ today. If only Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal players had prepared properly for the first two Champions League group games against Dinamo Zagreb and Olympiacos then we could now be sitting on top of the group. With ifs and buts and all that however, you never know how the Gunners would have performed last night if we had won those two earlier games.
