Just for a change the Arsenal team that played last night were a joy to watch, and not only consolidated their place in the Top Four, they also closed the gap on the Spuds, and also improved our goal difference! What more could you expect from a bunch of losers like us lol…..
Even Carl Jenkinson, who only plays once in a blue moon for us but did a fine job as a supersub sub, got caught up in the confident atmosphere, but he kept to the party line of not thinking about a Top Four place yet despite our position.
Of course the fact is that our next game is the North London derby, but after three wins for us and a couple of defeats to a collapsing Spurs, there is a good chance we could close the gap on our rivals even further. Jenks said on the Top Four chances: “I think it’s a very easy thing to say but we’re looking at one game at a time. That’s the way we’ve got to look at things and it’s the way the manager looks at things. We just keep building.
“In the last few games in particular, we’ve played some really good stuff. We’re looking like a very strong side, which we are. We’ve got a lot of really talented players and we want to show that we can do well at the minute. Of course, we’ve got a tough game coming up but we’re going into it with a lot of momentum and a lot of confidence.”
“It’s hugely important. Towards the end of the season is a very critical time because the competitions are coming to an end and it’s about being consistent to get the results. I think we’re doing that really well at the minute but we’ve got some big games coming up. It’s a very important time for us but as players, we all know that. Our focus is on doing a good job and doing what we need to do.”
Okay I know I’ve got to temper my enthusiasm just a little bit longer, but can you imagine the scenes if we beat Tottenham at the weekend? We will be just one point behind their third place and their confidence will be shattered. After that would anyone condemn me if I started dreaming about St Totteringham’s Day again, and a Champions League place next season?
Come On You Gunners!
