Well it was hardly a walkover, but as usual when we expect Arsenal to have a hard game we end up winning. Although Hull certainly gave us a run for our money, the Gods were on our side and we scraped through with a little (Ok a lot!) of luck, and we have moved up to equal second with Liverpool, who got their first win of the year against Spurs (Wasn’t that great to watch?).
But our giant keeper Petr Cech knows as well as we do, that if our season is going to stop going down the drain we have to build on today’s hard fought win and play like that every game, except even better. “We need to be consistent, that’s the first thing,” Cech said on Arsenal.com. “We have periods when we are doing really well, then we had a week when we lost both games and didn’t play well, so we need to make sure that after a performance like today we carry on and improve where we can.
“We need to make sure we are ready for every game because each game will be like a final.
“We really needed this win,” Cech added. “We fell 12 points behind and there are not many games to be played now. They have a big advantage, Chelsea, so we need to make sure we keep winning our games.”
He is right. If we have another week like last week then we can just ab
out throw in the towel, but seriously we need to improve a hell of a lot to actually challenge Chelsea. We have to win every single game from now until the end of the season, and even that might not be enough.
Perhaps it’s just wishful thinking…. but you never know!
