Going through the newspapers and I just can’t believe what the media continually spew on a daily basis. “Arsenal will be lucky to get 6th”, “Arsenal have a failed youth system”, “Arsenal need to spend money” and the most ridiculous “Arsenal need a new manager”. Why is it that the media pray for Arsenal’s next blunder? Why is it that when we do something, there is always something wrong with it? Why is the media so anti-Arsenal?
Is this the year Spurs finish above us?
I honestly thought that we had turned the corner after Swansea, so to speak. Even against Dortsmund we managed to fight for our draw and it could have easily been a win if it wasn’t for the lucky goal.
Yet here I am today writing an article on how Spurs could very realistically get 4th place this season. Even if we could not win the premier league, Arsenal fans have always prided themselves on the fact that we have always finished above Spurs. Could this effectively be the season where not only do we manage to lose our grip on the top 4 cut but drop below our bitter rivals. It is a devastating reality.
