1. It’s not like we lost total control when it comes to standings. We are 2 points behind the leader and its still November. Spurs won’t go anywhere; Man United and Chelsea are our only threats. Why do I think Spurs won’t go anywhere? Because they’re not a real threat to the top 3 teams in the league. When any of those 3 teams play at their best, Spurs are no match. They did beat Arsenal last weekend at the Emirates but it couldn’t really have come at the best moment of the season. This is when Arsenal players need to step it up and realize that closing games is something that they are lacking. It is also a sign for Wenger to sign a world class defender to bolster our defense and fix our problems in the back. Thank you Spurs for the wakeup call, I am relishing the FA Cup defeat when Arsenal would just run all over you guys because you couldn’t have given us a better reason to do so.
2. The loss to Braga was a bit of a shock to us but honestly, Braga weren’t playing football. I think they got the wrong memo, maybe next time we should translate to Portuguese so they know next time that Arsenal isn’t a rugby team. Our next game is a must win against Partizan Belgrade in Arsenal Stadium in order to advance to the round of 16. I am 100 percent sure that we will win this game and advance for many reason but three of the most important reasons are 1. We are playing at home 2. When it comes to a time in need, Arsenal will pull it off 3. Partizan Belgrade have zero points in Group H.
3. Wenger really needs to pull one move this January to ensure that Arsenal and that move is signing Vertonghen from Ajax. Reuniting him with his former teammate and bringing him at this time of need is the best option that Wenger has. Having a strong backline with 4 top class defenders at the same time would be the best thing that Arsenal has done since the invincible era and we all remember what happened when we had an invincible squad.
4. In Arsene We Trust. This is something that fans need to realize. You can’t blame Wenger because the ref didn’t call the penalty against Braga or because our lack of mental strength helped Spurs score 3 goals in the second half. It’s up to the players if they want to win. Wenger has done all of the right things to do. He brought in Wilshere, Nasri, Fabregas, Chamakh and many other world class players, it’s up to them if they want it or not and with the new attitude of Wenger, they will produce.
