I am not sure that I even believe in good luck and bad luck, although being an Arsenal fan in recent years hqas left me cursing the seemingly unfair and bad sequence of fortune that has seen the Gunners beset by things that have adversely affected the club.
An injury crisis that left Arsene Wenger unable to call on Aaron Ramsey when he was on fire and had led us to the top[ of the league for instance, with other big players like Ozil and Walcott already in the treatment room, was arguably the reason for us not winning the title that season.
Not being a suspicious or religious person, though, along with the oft repeated theory that luck is supposed to even itself out over the course of a season, made me take these setbacks on the chin. You also have to accept that no matter how much we try it is almost impossible to be unbiased when it comes to Arsenal.
Bearing all this in mind I still think that the Gunners have had terrible luck, but this season feels different. All of a sudden we are getting penalties, late goals and other strokes of luck that have been absent in recent years. Everything seems to be going our way at the minute and I really do believe that these things play a huge part.
Things can soon change, of course, and Arsenal could well be hit with an injury crisis and some bad referee decisions, but if our luck continues to hold I really feel that we could be set for a great season. What do you guys think?
