I can perfectly understand the attitude of most Arsenal fans in throwing their hands up and abandoning any lingering hopes that the Gunners could mount a stirring comeback in the Premier League title race. After all, most of us had already given up before the game against West Ham.
The five 1-0 wins in the last six games for Leicester kept crushing our belief and it just seems that everything is going their way. And despite an impressive fight to comeback after Andy Carroll’s quick fire hat-trick yesterday, the signs all point to it not being our year again.
However, what difference would it make to our attitudes if today was to see both Leicester and Tottenham lose their games? Looking at the opposition they face and their recent results it could well happen and that would leave Arsenal just three points behind the spuds and 10 behind the Foxes but with a game in hand meaning that we have 18 points to play for.
Would this scenario rekindle some hope in the hearts of the Arsenal faithful? I think it would in me and I can only hope and pray that Sunderland and Man United give me the chance to find out.
