I understand that there are a lot of Arsenal fans out there who are struggling to feel anything positive about our club at the moment. I share the frustration that another poor start to the season has produced and I do not agree with Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal board when they try to tell us that this summer was a successful one for the4 Gunners in terms of the transfer business done.
But that does not mean that every single thing connected with Arsenal should be seen from the negative, glass half full, perspective that some Gooners have got themselves into and seem unable to get out of. A prime example, in my opinion, are some of the reactions from Arsenal fans to the fact that our playmaker Mesut Ozil has just put in two impressive performances on the international stage for Germany.
How can he score and provide two assists for the Germans when he has not been in great form for Arsenal you ask? It proves he is not trying at club level you say, but does it really? Could it not just be that he plays better when the team he is in plays well?
Should Arsenal fans not actually be happy that Ozil has just enjoyed two good games and will probably come back to north London feeling a lot better than he did when he left? Would we rather he had a nightmare with Germany like the recently departed Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain did with England? Of course not.
Come on Arsenal fans, try to muster up some positivity and summon up a smile will you?
