We’ve also been here before and then faded down the stretch… atm we are in second place and there is a swarm of teams around us. 7 teams all within 5 points of top and 4 teams within 2 points of top. It is a better year for the top teams, that is clear so far (bar ManU hahahahahahah).
I am very, very happy with Arsenal atm and so, so glad that we feel like we actually have a squad that can compete for a full season, but I won’t get ahead of myself. Right now we are relying on an in-form Walcott, an out-of-position Sanchez (tbf it is kind of working so I’ll take it), and a young Iwobi massively for our offensive ability. Not to mention the key to it all, Ozil.
Right now I feel we absolutely could have the best defense in the league, notwithstanding some of the sh*t we have seen so far this season… that may be knee jerk, but I think only Spurs could argue clearly to be above us in that category and they just lost a key component to it.
What I worry about right now is our attacking fluency seems so very fragile - one injury or a Walcott falling off of form, or an Iwobi having a Sophomore slump and we are fd. Who do we have to come in? Ox??? Maybe Perez can do the trick and maybe Ollie will come back in, reducing our wing needs by slotting Sanchez back to the left, but man it feels fragile as fck to me.
