We are back!!
Today we have finally seen this new Arsenal team turn the corner and we can rightly say that we are back. We went to Stamford Bridge today and let’s be honest, I bet there were are lot of people including some Arsenal fans that would have thought we had no chance of getting a result. But I am not one of them, and I said in my previous post this week that we would get a result. Even when we went a goal down and went into the interval being 1-2 behind, I still felt we could get something and in the second half we showed some real character to come back and beat Chelski. Make no mistake, this result is one hell of a massive confidence booster for the whole club and supporters, and just maybe it might convince some of the doubters.
I know it wasn’t the best defensively but it is something we can work on and get better. We had a few outstanding performances today; Kos at the back was by far our best defender and I also thought Ramsey and Gervinho were very good. Even Theo, who I have been giving a lot of stick to had a good game but the MOTM was RVP, not only for the goals he scored, but the way he lead the team. And if anybody was in any doubt about his commitment to the club, just watch his celebrations at the end. I can imagine the media will be rubbishing our performance and maybe say it was down to Chelski’s own frailty at the back, but we know that is crap. We made them look bad and the best moment for me was when JT the rascist was left scrambling on the ground like a little baby as RVP waltzed round Cech for our fourth goal.
I think that we can raise our heads up as I believe we have finally banished the poor start to the season. Now I would think we should kick on, not only in the league but the other competitions we are in. Never mind what the doubters think, I know we are back and everybody should realise all the talk of crisis is total bollocks. Even those who want Arsene Wenger out will need to keep quite for now as well because I think he has also proved that he’s still the best manager for this club. So roll on Tuesday and here’s to beating Marseille and qualifying as winners from our CL group. Today is truly a great day to be an Arsenal supporter; we are back and the rest of the league should be weary of us.
