Yep, that’s how I see it.
Beat Bolton today and mathematically we are still in with a chance of catching Manchester United, lose and it’s pretty much over in my book.
The Chavs won last night so we need to win to keep up with them for second place.
As for the chasing pack, b*****s to them as we should be looking up, not down!
Today is not a day to worry about head to heads, their last game or ours. The good, bad or ugly we have seen in games gone by, today is about winning and getting three points.
If our side can play like we did against the old enemy in the first half, we will blow Bolton away but play any lesser standard than that and it will be another tough old day.
Five games left!
Five games to show you care about the Red and White which is Arsenal!
Five games to show Wenger why you deserve to stay at Arsenal this summer.
Five games to show all Arsenal Fans you care about the club we all love, support and sometimes all fall out over.
Five games to show exactly why you deserve to be paid each month.
But most importantly,
Five games to show everyone who doubts you, that you care about OUR club, it’s history and just why a club like ours should be winning games like today’s……
Are you up for it Arsenal, I bet your bottom dollar Bolton will be!!
As Nike, who’s shirt you wear says:
In other news reported this morning, Keith Edelman, who was managing director at Arsenal between 2000- 2008 believes that David Dein is the missing link in Wenger’s management team.
During the years we were successful there was an alliance of people at the top who made the club successful. That was David Dein, Arsene and myself. I ran the business side and David and Arsene ran the football side. David did a phenomenal job for the club and I think they miss David’s role in encouraging Arsene.
Arsene is naturally cautious and David was always very ambitious for the club. Look at Sol Campbell and how important he was and how expensive he was as an acquisition at a key moment when he won us a lot of trophies. Campbell signed on a free transfer, but his wages and signing-on fees amounted to about £6million a year, at the time an unprecedented commitment. I don’t see that now.
David was also a great networker. Together with Arsene, David would look at players and get into a position where he felt comfortable spending money on them. I used to sit in the boardroom and hear Arsene say, “If you want to win the Premier League, you have to have a world-class goalkeeper”.
Well, if that’s what he believes, has he actually delivered that? David’s importance is probably underestimated as he would make sure we now had a world-class goalkeeper.
The demise of David is probably the reason why Arsenal have not won more trophies, that and the fact that they haven’t made some key signings at some key moments.
That’s all from me for today folks, have a good one….
Happy Easter Everyone
