Arsenal really can win it this year by Sam P
The season before last, when Arsenal spent most of the campaign at the top of the League, but everybody (and I mean EVERYBODY, from pundits down to Arsenal fans themselves) were predicting that the Gunners would fall by the wayside and end up fighting for fourth place. And so it came to pass, as injuries (and tough fixtures) chiseled away at our hopes. And so everyone’s predictions came true.
But why does this season have to be the same? No one can say that this has been a normal run-off-the-mill season where the big four pull away from the middle table clubs and secure their normal place in the scheme of things. This is topsy turvy season and absolutely nothing is predictable. I think there was some sour grapes from Benik Afobe after Arsenal beat Bournemouth and he failed to score against us at the weekend. He said: “It would be great if Arsenal win the title but it has been the same story every year,” he said. “This is the time of the season when they normally fall behind and start losing games they should be winning.
“They obviously have a lot of world-class players and I have only good things to say about them, but there are a lot of fantastic teams fighting them for the title this year and also a lot of teams no-one believed could be in the race.”
But the fact is that the ONE team that is always in the race is still there; ARSENAL. Of the current top three THEY are the ones with the experience to handle the pressure and take the title. Wenger has nearly a full squad to choose from and absolutely no excuses. If we beat the Foxes this weekend our confidence will be sky high, and I can see absolutely no reason why we can’t do this thing. History means nothing at all this year and we WILL win the Premiership, so stop spouting history and GET BEHIND THE TEAM!
