I think we Arsenal fans can all agree that the Premier League title is gone for another season, after the Gunners were beaten by Chelsea who opened up a 12 point gap thanks to their win. So the question for us now is what will happen from now on.
We know that Arsene Wenger will be intent on keeping up his admittedly very impressive record of getting us into the Champions League and even though it is very tight between second and sixth place and we have some very big clubs to contend with I am confident he will do it.
That does not really cut it for the fans though, and if the Frenchman is entertaining thoughts of stepping down at the end of the season he may well be desperate to end on a high note himself. Arsenal are still in two cup competitions, the FA cup and the Champions League, so would a trophy from one of them be enough for us to be happy?
The Champions League is certainly the better prize but of course it is a lot harder to win with the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid in it, not to mention that our next opponents are Bayern Munich. Should Wenger make Europe his priority even if it means resting the best players and risking some EPL points?
I personally think that the European cup would make this season a success for Arsenal, especially if we could double it up with another FA cup triumph. That domestic trophy on it’s own though, would not be enough for me to be happy with this summer.
Do you think either cup or both of them would save the season or would the failure to challenge for the EPL title again be too much to get over?
