Many Arsenal fans are feeling quietly confident that the Gunners can go all the way this season after coming through the usual Nasty November unscathed, and one Gunners legend, David Seaman, is growing in belief that this could be our season at last, in fact he is desperate for Arsene Wenger’s side to go all the way.
“It’s a good title race,” Seaman was quoted as saying in the Express. “There’s a few big clubs that are up there now and they’ve all got a great chance of winning it.
“With Arsenal I look at them and I feel confident. When you look back at last season, we finished second – okay, we were quite lucky to finish second if I’m honest – but this season we’re playing better, we’ve got a better squad, we’ve got a better team.
“The next stage is to actually win the Premier League and that’s what all Arsenal fans are dying for – even I am as an ex-Arsenal player, I’m dying for us to win the league just to shut everybody up.”
Seaman may be feeling so confident as we are still unbeaten since the opening day of the season, but also we have the added confidence of topping our Champions League Group as well, also without any defeats. But obviously he is worried about Arsenal’s dismal record of getting past the last 16 in the elite European competition. “It could be [the season to win it], I hope it is,” he added. “We’ve been in this position quite a few times before.
“It’s all on who we get in the draw and then the round after that, that’s where we seem to have a little bit of a wobble and get knocked out at that level.
“It affects our league level and other things come in. We’ve got a very important period coming up in January and then we’ll see how it is after that.”
Well we got through November without losing. If we can get to the New Year still undefeated, including the Man City clash, then surely even the most pessimistic Arsenal fan must start believing that this really could be our season…
