According to almost any pundit who you care to listen to, Arsenal have as much chance of winning the Premier League title this season as Sam Allardyce does of being given the Real Madrid job. They have been saying this all season, however, and their reasons have all come and gone, with Arsenal stubbornly remaining on top.
Arsene Wenger has brought a new meaning to the old song “Boring, Boring, Arsenal” as we had to sit and watch 11 Gunners passing the ball from one end of the pitch to the other and then back again over and over and over! Wenger thinks that it was a mental problem. He said: “I put it down to psychological reasons and to the fact that we didn’t want to be stupid.
Arsenal kept up the great Premier League form with a hard fought win away to West Brom, making it six wins from the last seven and ratcheting up the pressure on Chelsea and Tottenham in the race for the Champions League positions. Arsene Wenger was understandably pleased with many aspects of the performance today, but he had special praise for the performance of Rosicky and the fighting spirit shown by the whole team.
Arsene Wenger saw his Arsenal team saved once again by his Spanish midfielder scoring the winning goal in the 85th minute against Aston Villa yesterday, and again raising spirits in the Gunners dressing room once again after two disastrous defeats. He has now scored 9 goals from midfield and usually crucial ones as well!

All of us have been watching yet another year of our Arsenal team cleaning their dressing rooms and going back home, not just empty handed, but begging for a 4th place in the league with the likes of Tottenham , Everton and lately Liverpool all trying to knock us off our pedestal.
