Sunday was the lowest point as an Arsenal fan in the last 20 years. It was kind of the last straw if you like. But I’ve calmed down now and have tried to look at it objectively and positively (as much as I can).
So, last 5 seasons after 3 games:
12/13 - 5 points (and only 9 points after 6 games)
13/14 - 6 points (lost our first game to Villa)
14/15 - 5 points (10 points after 6 games)
15/16 - 4 points (lost to West Ham on opening day)
16/17 - 4 points (that Liverpool game)
OK, It’s never been as bad as this (especially when you add in fan and dressing room unrest), but it’s never been amazing either. It’s not disastrous as long as the team don’t put in performances like they did against Liverpool again and Wenger PLAYS THEM IN BLOODY POSITION!
Having said that, top 4 will be tough. If I force myself I can just about see us finishing above Spurs. Amongst our shambles, it’s worth remembering they only have 1 more point than us at the moment and haven’t yet settled in at Wembley. But the other 4 are another kettle of fish and I don’t trust Wenger to gee the team up to get a result against any of them.
