After a multitude of false dawns this season that saw us threaten to turn our season around, four wins on the bounce leave me feeling that we may actually have done it at just the right time.
If anyone would have told me just 10 days ago that we`d take 6 points out of 6 against Tottenham and Liverpool scoring 7 goals in the process I`d have suggested it was time for the men in the white coats to take them away and give their noggins a good looking over, but here were are, in a little under 7 days having done just that.
There are many Gooners out there who seem to take some kind of perverse pride out of slating the club, the players and the staff and then showing up and saying "I told you so", yet when the boys are doing well they are nowhere to be seen.
I wouldn`t go as far to say that I slagged the team off, but I definitely questioned whether Arsene Wenger was still the right man for the job. And while I wouldn`t say we`re in a position where we could be a successful club, we`re on the right track.
We do still have to change our stance on transfers in the summer I feel, everything isn`t hunky dory just because we`ve won a few games, but with that aside I feel there`s a belief coming back into the side and back to the terraces too.
I don`t know about you guys, but even as late as the 90th minute I still felt we`d win today. Just a gut feeling (which is nothing more than a guess), but even having these gut feelings mean I`ve got more of a belief in the boys.
There`s still a long way to go and things still do need changing up in the summer, but we`ve given ourselves not only a real chance of Champions League football next season, but also of overhauling Spurs, and whilst finishing 3rd over 4th doesn`t mean that much, finishing above Spurs would be hilarious after the grief they`ve given us over the past few months.
And if we go on do this, the Arsene Wenger needs a massive amount of credit …. Not to mention an apology from me.
S - Sorry for the lack of a match day discussion thread today, in my eagerness to get to watch the game I forgot to post something before I went out.
