As Arsenal fans, we all want the Gunners to do well and try to tell ourselves that we will. For a large part of last season, we were actually proved right, but too many years of falling short has also given us a sharp dose of pessimism as well, so when we come up against a big team like Man City today, we tend to hope for the best and expect the worst.
I am sure that I was not the only Gooner to sit and watch with a certain amount of surprise as Arsenak took the Premier League champions to the cleaners at Wembley around a month ago, in the season opener that is the Community Shield. And I reckon we can do the same thing again today.
Because of the nature of that showpiece game, when it did not really matter too much, Arsenal played with freedom and Wenger’s words in the build up to today’s game tells me that he is trying to send the players out today with the same attitude.
I think the pressure is all on Citeh and they do not like it up em Captain Mainwaring. So with a seriously speedy front line, all the creativity behind and with the first choice back four available, I see no reason why the Gunners cannot repeat that great result of a month ago. What do you guys think?
