We haven't had the best of fortunes recently, of course a lot of it was self inflicted, but there is no doubt, prior to Saturday's victory over Man Utd, that there was an air of gloom surrounding our club.
Following the embarrassing loss to Stoke, serious questions were being asked by a section of the fans about just how much Arsene Wenger has left to offer our club, some even calling for his head.
Well maybe, just maybe, these people calling for Wenger to bring an end to his Arsenal reign, will now be able to see just how important the Frenchman is to Arsenal.
Arsene fielded an incredibly young team in the Carling Cup tonight against a Wigan side, who might not be doing well in the Premier League right now, but they were finalists in this competition a few years ago and they are a top flight team, and this side of 16, 17 18 & 19 year olds dispatched them, not only with style, but with great heart.
This team, that scored an incredible 3-0 victory, was assembled for a minuscule amount of cash, indeed the money we got from Tottenham for David Bentley probably paid for the whole lot of them.
Arsene Wenger is a genius, of that there can be no dispute.
