This is Arsenal’s year at last! by G-Rude
Perhaps the fact that Arsenal won against the odds yesterday after being outplayed by Newcastle, is a very good sign that 2016 could be Arsenal’s year. Certainly Theo Walcott thinks it is a great omen for the club and the players have the belief that this really could be our title for the taking this season.
“The three points are crucial at this moment in time,” Walcott said. “especially when teams slip up as well. We’ve had a blip at times but it’s important that we get those hard-fought three points today. In previous seasons we would have lost that or drawn, so that’s a very good sign for 2016.
“The title is anyone’s to be honest but there’s such a belief in this team that we can do it this year. It’s been a long time and everyone understands that, but you could just sense with that performance that we know what we need to do. It’s up for grabs but we have the strength in depth in this squad and I believe that we can push on this season and hopefully be successful.”
One very good reason for optimism is the fact that Arsenal won 9 points more than any other Premiership team in 2015, which would equate to the title this year if we can keep that form going. This one single fact persuades me that anyone who wants Wenger sacked must be totally mad. Despite having a team of crocks and donkeys for most of the year, he has still made them the most consistent team in the League. But if Arsenal suffer just one loss, any loss, there are a cacophany of keyboard warriors demanding that we sack the best manager in the country……
I guess Wenger takes no notice of this idiotic minority so maybe we should as well… Talk to the hand!
