You are right Holding, Arsenal are not in crisis yet but they soon will be.
Many Arsenal players have been coming out to contribute their own opinion on the mini crisis in the Arsenal camp at the moment. Some have been blunt about what they feel; others have been diplomatic about it. One thing that is sure to everybody concerned however is that Arsenal is not in the best sort of form at this particular period in time.
Just yesterday, Rob Holding spoke to Sky Sports on what he feels the problems at Arsenal are, and this is what he has to say “We just need to string a couple of wins together and I think that will lift the confidence again and hopefully set us off on a run,”
“We just need to stay calm and stay positive. We’re sixth, we’re not a million miles off it…We’re going into a busy Christmas period now where there’s going to be three Premier League games a week..
“We’re eight points off the top four but if we have three wins in a week we’re back up within touching distance, so it’s not crisis point by any stretch of the imagination. We need to keep calm, keep positive and keep working on what we need to improve on.”
Rob Holding is one player I respect a lot in Arsenal; he is a professional in all aspects. He has gone about his sport career void of controversies and has come on to do a good job, whenever he is been called upon. He should know what is happening in the club at the moment but saying we are not in crisis yet, is something I won’t agree with. We may not be in a full blown crisis yet, but we are surely in a mini crisis and that is just the real truth.
Fine, every team goes through patches of difficult spells once in a while, but when the spell lasts longer than it should, and then questions need to be asked. We need to ask why things don’t seem to be going smoothly at the moment! Unfortunately, a lot of people have asked this question without positive responses.
Stringing a couple of wins together will go a long way in helping the confidence of the players and the club, but it won’t hide the fact that Arsenal are in crisis and need to sort themselves out fast! We went on a 22 games unbeaten last season but was that enough to get into the Champions league? No, it wasn’t.
I doff my hat to you Holding but Arsenal is in mini crisis and if something is not done to check it, then we may as well get into a full blown crisis mate.
