Can we keep it up like this for the entire season? by KM
Well, well, it was another encouraging performance from the Arsenal who played some sizzling football and we could’ve hammered Basel really hard! Impressive stuff going on up front and Ospina did again enough so that Sczezny better get to improve his Italian, because I don’t see a way for him back!
I think our recent improvement has something to do with Theo Walcott’s impressive form of late. 5 goals in 7 games, the guy breathes confidence and he wasn’t shy of comments about himself too, but it’s a story we’ve seen before. Theo has had his blimps of quality runs, but can he do it an entire season with no injuries?
He and Alexis create such a deadly false 9 interchange, most teams get stunned. This brings the point that we have a good squad, in fact we have two world class superstars in Ozil and Sanchez, but question is do we have the other players to step up and make the difference?
When Ramsey had his amazing spell we were flying. Now Theo is hot and we look really good. The question is will the nearly man become the main man when the obvious two are not doing it? Theo has been here 10 years after all. Ramsey is another one of those players, but young Alex Iwobi has also quietly moved into the squad. Most importantly we have a squad. Can it deliver over the entire season though?
I was at the Ludogorets – PSG game and if we play smart, the group is there for the taking. The home team made a lot of sloppy mistakes that eventually cost them the lead and at 1-2 they missed a penalty which could’ve taken the game to a new direction. PSG improved their level in the second half, but overall I really feel we can top it if we are serious.
We had a lovely run of wins last season that helped us be top at Christmas. We are on another lovely run now. If we want results, the sprint has to become a marathon that will last the whole 9 months till the end of May. For now we are looking good, let’s keep it up!
