season over? I think so……..

Within 10 days Arsenal have seen hopes dashed. Their recent inability to find the back of the opponents net along with a propensity to screw up in front of thie own goal has see them drop out of the FA cup, lose in the final of the League cup and fail to reach the quarter finals of the Champions League, and if Arsene seriously thinks they can now focus on the title he is in serious denial.

Tonights game once again saw Arsenal dominate a side that sets its stall out to defend but fail to capitalise on the chances given to them. Even Thiery failed to impress and was clearly carrying an injury, I’m really not sure as to why it was nesccesary to bring him on and risk yet further time on the treatment bench? It wasn’t that the team were failing to makeĀ  chances, they just failed to convert them, I thought The Beast looked threatening, and didn’t think he was the one to come off.

Without, Rosicky & RVP it is difficult to see where the goals are going to come from? Surely we must strengthen theĀ  attack in the summer if we are to challenge for honours next year? The current squad of young players even next year at an average age of about 22 is going to be too inexperienced, there needs to be a better balance, a bit more resilience and host of goal scorers throughout the team.

Let’s hope this team has the reserves to dig deep and make sure we take 3rd place in the prem. Come on Arsene, tell the fans what they want to hear, see something for a change and say we just aren’t good enough, no more excuses please……

Looking forward to another day of grief in the office tomorrow……………..not
