Although many fans think that little has changed since Unai Emery replaced Arsene Wenger as Arsenal boss in the summer, but surely there is some extra positivity and hope for the future?
We are right now four points ahead of where we were at this stage last season, despite our recent slump in form, and especially despite our massive injury list! Although it remains to be seen how Emery’s first season will pan out at the end of the campaign. The Gunners traditionally have better results in the last third of the season, and if we get a couple of new arrivals and some of our injured players back, there is still a chance we could finish in the Top Four, so let’s keep being positive for now shall we?
The end of the year celebrations also give me the chance to thank everyone who has contributed to JustArsenal’s success in 2018, from the writers like Konstantin, Dan Smith, Pat J, Nicholas Oyoo, Sean, Bryan Gobbet, Sam P, Darren N, and the loads of other occasional wordsmiths that have sent in their efforts. They have generated much lively discussion amongst our many readers.
And that takes me nicely to the great mix of opinions we have in the comments section, with special thanks to regulars like Lod Jon, the two Kens, Sue, Phil, Midkemma, OzzieGunner, Innit, Break-on-Through, Durand, the Johns, ThirdMan, and the thousands of new and old commentors that have taken the time to join the discussion along the way.
You have all made JustArsenal one of the most diverse Arsenal websites in the world with visitors from all parts of the globe, and I am eternally grateful to you all for coming here and making my vision of an all-inclusive Arsenal website come to light, even if there have been a few small ‘disagreements’ along the way LOL.
Well I hope you all have a great New Years Eve and I wish you all a happy, healthy and successful year ahead.
Thanks to one and all….. See you next year!
