Arsenal need one more win to equal their amount of away league victories from last season. by Dan Smith
Too many times this group of players have had the wrong attitude on their travels, showing up underestimatimg the opposition, not winning the battle first. We were guilty of that in the first half at Newcastle. That though will make the three points more rewarding to Uani Emery. Week by week he is trying to improve the mentality of the squad he’s inherited.
The only way confidence on the road will improve is by learning how to win again. The line between success and failure is so fine. We could have easily dropped points in our last two matches, yet both times found a way to return to London with maximum points. Performances havn’t been convincing, but that could prove more crucial to our development then if we had won by a huge margin.
In his last couple of years, if Arsene Wenger’s football ideology wasn’t working we never had a plan B. In Cardiff and at St James Park, we rolled up our sleeves, dug deep and found a way to get over the line. This time 12 months ago, that wouldn’t have happened.
