Maybe it is because I am an Arsenal fan that I see things in a certain way, maybe other fans from other clubs feel the same way, I don’t know, but from where I am stood it seems that most pundits really do have a negative view of Arsenal.
Going through my usual Arsenal news round up a couple headlines jumped out at me regarding pundits opinions on who will miss out on a top-four place next season.
Starting with former Tottenham and Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy, he obviously has his former clubs finishing top four but not Arsenal and Chelsea, no surprise there then.
Then there is former Tottenham and Man Utd forward Dimitar Berbatov who also has Arsenal missing out on a top four spot along with United. A little surprising that he does not include the Red Devils but hardly a shocker that he also has Arsenal outside the top four.
That was just today, if I go back further I have no doubts there will be more of the same and this is after Arsenal have strengthened their squad significantly.
Imagine what it was like before Pepe and Ceballos joined.
I blame myself for clicking on these links because I already know in advance what they will opine.
Tottenham have hardly improved and lost a defender, Chelsea have lost Eden Hazard and United have only strengthened their defence, in better words none of them have arguably done better than Arsenal in this transfer window but for some reason it is always Arsenal that is being underestimated.
What is it that Kevin keegan said, I would love it if we beat them? Well, I will love it if we finish top-four just to see these so called pundits eat their own words.
