A win is a win and that is the end of that debate. There were many talking points in the Watford v Arsenal game and no doubt we will discuss them, but for now, I simply do not care what transpired in the game, a win is a win and that is all that matters.
We won away, we are in the fourth position, some of our players were rested and others certainly did not run themselves into the ground and that sets us up nicely for Thursday’s game in Italy.
Of course, we were playing against ten men and no one can say that was a vintage performance and if we repeat that performance against Napoli we could well be in trouble but you know what, winning becomes a habit and when a streak is broken it is broken and that is what we achieved tonight.
We made no less than six changes, we were playing a team full of confidence on their ground and we still won, we have Champions League qualification back in our own hands and by any definition, that is a job well done.
There is a time for negativity and there is a time for positivity and tonight, is a time for positivity and I will sleep well knowing that we are doing just fine in two competitions.
It might not have been pretty, but who cares?
