There are a lot of unhappy Arsenal fans around at the moment for sure. We should have won the Premier League title this season because Man City, Chelsea and Man United left the door open. We should have at least made it past the first knockout phase of the Champions League once in the last five seasons and we really should be trying if not managing to match the transfer spending of the biggest clubs in England and Europe, right?
Maybe, but another way of looking at things is that Arsene Wenger has signed Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez in the last few years. While the Frenchman has been in charge we have never failed to make the Champions League group stage or get out of it into the knockout rounds. We have won EPL titles and become the most successful club in FA cup history.
Now here comes the big question to unhappy Arsenal fans, and I want you to think about this properly and answer honestly, which record would you rather have, and this is assuming that the spuds win the title? Would you really take an unexpected title win this season, after having to settle for second best to your local rivals ever since the Premier League began?
Okay we have had plenty of disappointment in recent years but all but a very few clubs around Europe would not swap their record for ours. And as a last little note to cheer up you Gooners, the Spuds are not going to win it anyway and their boasts will have to be confined to finishing above Arsenal for the first time in a generation. Is it really that bad being an Arsenal fan?
