I’m going to be quick today as I’m thoroughly exhausted, fatigued and filled to capacity with one of those colds that I intend to make appear worse than it actually is by constantly complaining about. Typically, this time of the year has that sort of impact on me. Roll on the glory of spring time.
For Arsenal, February brings a plethora of tough fixtures – seamless segue – and last night Mourinho and his hideous troops upset the odds to beat Man City, ensuring we head into our difficult run top of the pile by 2 points.
The question I want to ask is simple: can Arsenal win the title? Do you believe?At present, there is a lot of folks arguing about this. Some saw January investment as crucial, others sit tight with faith in the team. Personally, I just hope to see the team compete, and wether those who disagree care to admit it, when a team sits top by two points over the half way point of a season, they are competing.
The real question is whether or not we can keep it up. The next 2-3 weeks of football will really show what Arsenal are made of. The big games are coming, and they come thick and fast. If we can find another gear and rise above the current injury troubles and supporter unrest, we have a genuine shot of winning something. In a time of oligarchs and wild investment, an Arsenal title victory will be one for the correct way of doing it.
However, if the upcoming fixtures prove our undoing and things don’t go according to plan, then that unrest I mentioned will heighten greatly. I hope it doesn’t come to that. It’s in Arsenal’s hands now. Let’s hope they are steady and secure.
That’s all from me. I’ll point those of you that read to the comments with a simple question – do you believe we can win the league? Let me know what you think. I will be back with something more substantial tomorrow.
As always; thanks for reading, you beautiful bastards.
