The worst thing that Arsenal could do after our last Premier League game saw a much more committed and determined team than most people expected away to Chelsea, would be to slip back to the bad old ways we have seen way too often in recent years.
It would not be the first time that Arsenal did this and after seeing it time and time again, including last season, a large number of Arsenal fans were convinced we needed a change at the top. Now we need to see a different change at the top, namely a change from Wenger himself and I feel sure he wants the same.
Maybe the Frenchman has changed. He certainly showed some rare teeth in holding on to Alexis Sanchez during the pressure of the summer transfer window. Maybe he was right in his belief that he did not need to sign a whole load of new players, but instead make sure he gets the best out of what we already have.
When the Gunners are up for it we are a force to be reckoned with, so I was pleased to see The Mirror reporting that Wenger had put the lads through an unusually intense and aggressive training session in the last one before the clash with West Brom.
The Frenchman has come up against, and struggled against, Tony Pulis teams often enough to know that his team will have to earn the right to play and show our quality. Is Wenger focusing on this as he puts Arsenal through their paces? I hope so and if so, could it be a sign that we are fired up properly, for West Brom and the whole season to come?
