So another week rolls by and another six points on the board. It was yet another top quality showing against Hull. Cardiff away is no easy place to go but we made them look ordinary. So much is the belief and confidence even Nicky Bendtner is on the scoresheet. He now has as many outfield goals as Soldado
These performances are so good that you just struggle to pick a man of the match or a poor performance. Koscielny and Mertesacker are playing out of this world. You bring in the your sub full backs and they play like they haven’t been away. All this and we are still lacking any real width, Walcott just about back, and Podolski and Chambo still to come. Confidence hey?
Tougher tests are knocking at the door now though. Everton, always a test, and now a much better footballing side without that Jock Muppet running the show. Napoli away, an impossible mission. Cit€h Away the hardest league match of the season and Chel$ki, serious contenders, at home just before Christmas. It’s an unforgiving run and one that must start with a win on Sunday. For me I would take draws in the next three. It may be frowned upon to think that way, for Napoli it guarantees us top spot in group F, and with Cit€h and Chel$ki it brings neither one closer to us. The other teams may catch up but it’s the two blue oil merchants who are closest to us. For me the title is between those two and only us if we don’t lose those games especially the home game.
Having said all that with our form we should be 100% confident. Of course the light blue oil merchants are in supreme home form but their away results show their vulnerability especially if they don’t take control early on. The dark blue oil merchants are all over the place, Moroniho’s self arrogance causes them to fluctuate from mind numbingly boring to sloppy and all over the shop. Our recent run of early goal could really blow the cockerel of the beach ball!
Away from the pitch there has been a lot of chat about young Kroenke joining the board, whilst the form on the field keeps supporters content, the owners shuffle their pieces. I’m not quite sure Kroenke is the young blood that AST was after on the board. Perhaps at least one of the Kroenke’s will at least pick up the phone to them, that’ll keep the piece for a while.
Last off, I’ve got to mention the REDaction petition, the guys from the noisy section want Arsenal to lead the call for safe standing. ABSOLUTELY! We stand at every away game, Block 5 and 6 stand anyway, and many sections of stadiums stand. Lets get behind this as fans and as a club.
The online petition is here – http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/arsenal-should-lead-the-push-for-safe-standing – thousands of Arsenal fans have already signed up. Get onboard to destination Safe Standing. So do two things:
1. Sign the petition – which asks Arsenal to start playing a leading role in advancing the campaign for safe standing.
2. Tell your friends, and ask them to sign it too.
Up the Gooners!!
