Arsenal need to stop thinking and start winning!

Out of 14 away games in the League this season Arsenal have won just 3 of them, against Everton, Burnley and Crystal Palace, and this has contributed massively to our lowly position in the table. Arsene wenger is naturally worried about this in the run up to another away match at in-form Brighton & Hove Albion. “I’m concerned because traditionally it was our strong point, away from home,” he said. “This season, we have not produced the results that we usually produce.

“It is a concern, of course, but we are in a position where we don’t have to think too much – we have just on the day to turn up and win the game.”

That is easier said than done, as losses to Swansea, Watford, Bournemouth and Stoke testify, and Wenger also thinks that our recent games have seen us drop in confidence even further. “[Our past two results] have taken out confidence and brought big disappointment,” Wenger said. “In football, as I said yesterday, you lose confidence very quickly and you regain it very slowly.

“You have to always show that kind of strength not to give in. In organisations when big kinds of disappointments come, they divide and they split. Our experience has to help us to stay together and focus on the next games.

“Of course [we have a point to prove] – you quickly want to gain confidence back, because we play at Brighton and after that, we play straight away in the Europa League. They are difficult games and you want to respond as quickly as possible.”

It is a well-known fact that Arsenal can often win games that they are expected to lose, so we simply have to hope that the Gunners wake up tomorrow and smell the coffee. They need a performance like never before with now a 13 point gap to Tottenham in 4th and Burnley creeping back up on us from 7th place.

Can we suddenly find our confidence again?

    We are bang average. And when you are average you win some and lose around the same amount or more.
    We can’t expect Iwobi, Xhaka, Eleny, Bellerin, Mustafi etc to start winning. We arent City or Spuds. Most of our players wouldn’t make their starting lineups. Sad but true. We are of the same quality as Chelsea, Everton and Burnley, not Top 4.

    All we can do is expect our players to play their very best (to play their hearts out every match) and hope that’s good enough. That’s all we can expect from an average midtable team.

    I hate being pessimistic but we need to be realistic too.

      Very true mate ?

  2. Haha there is no hope left now 13 points is an impossible gap to close. The inept dinosaur through years of negligence, mismanagement and stubborn insistence on playing favourites has weakened the team to a point where we are unable to not only compete with any of our rivals, but also to pick up any simple away points. Half the teams in the league are now bogey teams. The cancerous parasite alongside his overpaid favourites like donkey Bellerin and headless chickens Welbeck and Iwobi must be immediately forced out if we are to go back to the top where we rightly belong to be.

      Bellerin, Welbeck and Iwobi could be better under the guidance of a better manager

      Tonight’s opponent is just Brighton, no match for Arsenal with their 200 million fire power

        “Tonight’s opponent is just Brighton, no match for Arsenal blah blah . . .”
        I prefer the MOTD commentator’s view: “Among 17 visitors to the Amex this season, only Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool have left with a win. Arsenal beware.”

          That’s us screwed then

    2. John Wick says:

      Quantic Dream – couldn’t of said it any better. Thumbs up ?

    3. AndersS says:

      How do you make it, that only half the teams are bogey teams??

    Hi unfortunate gooners..
    waiting for Ac milan Dump arsenal out of Europa League
    what else to expect ?

  4. goonervishrut says:

    I’m a little worried about Paul merson’s comments about the 4 year project and the comparison with everton

  5. Sue says:

    Confidence is rock bottom. Every team will fancy their chances against us, starting with Brighton today.
    After witnessing how crap we’ve been lately, I can’t see us coming away with the 3 points. Once again, we’ve made it so hard for ourselves & it is impossible to close the gap. The teams above us actually TRY when they play & actually score goals, unlike us!
    Yet another season without St Totteringham’s day….What a pile of pants… I’m really not enjoying watching my team anymore ?

    This is my final comment until thumbs up/down comes back. This isn’t the biggest or the cleverest Arsenal website, but what I loved about it was that you could get a true sense of how Arsenal fans are thinking w the thumbs feature: frustrated, optimistic, laughing at situations, do analysts have a point?, do you think Lacazette has been a success?, is Wilshere playing well?, the thumbs up/down come strictly from us the fan base. It’s not deluded. It’s not run through editors to screen out what’s unsavory. It’s raw, it’s our emotions—checked or unchecked, doesn’t matter—it’s a bit of a fan base thermometer that all could understand. Goodbye for now, Gunnas.

      I think the best way to get your emotions across is to write them down for the whole world to see and to react accordingly, but having said that I have told you before that the Thumbs destroyed my server twice. Once when the original one got corrupted and the second when I tried to add a new one.

      Because of all these problems, I have been working to set up a brand new dedicated server (at much cost I might add) to stop these issues. The Final changeover is going to happen on Monday if all goes to plan. Once I am convinced everything is working perfectly again I will then think about trying to find a thumbs plug-in that works….

      Don’t think I haven’t tried…..

        Okay Admin. I sympathize with you. Thank you. But do everything possible to return it. It’s what makes this site unique and exciting even in a gloomy period like this. We like it and we will be grateful. Thank you once again for working towards it. But we will keep on reminding you until it is back. We are so frustrated as Arsenal fans. It has not been this bad. Am sorry.
