I have to say that I'm losing patience with this Arsenal side, they are a team of losers I'm afraid. There is no one in this current side who steps it up when games are tight and adds a spark of inspiration when it's needed. It's impossible to compare anyone in this side to the likes of Bergkamp, Pires, Vieira etc, they knew what it took to win games, all kind of games.
We lose the Carling Cup Final, fair enough that can happen, so the fans took the positives from the game, we then lose the FA Cup replay against an average Blackburn side, yet again the fans take it and move on, we then get knocked out of the Champions League with an unbelievably wet performance.
After all that chain of losing, 100% losing with nothing to really play for, Arsenal then put on a brave face and try and do their best to claim second spot, telling us that their target is to solidify third and ideally take second place from Chelsea. Who are they kidding? Yet again we lose a must win match and effectively end the challenge before it has even begun. Pathetic. I really am sick of watching a team of talented players not knowing how to win vital matches and not being able to score, I suspect Arsenal fans are slowly getting concerned that we are the club that develops youth for the future only for them to leave in their prime, whilst Arsenal forever remain in no mans land.
Fair enough, losing is inevitable in football, but it's the manner in which Arsenal lose and the same old mistakes being made.
In the summer Wenger really has to introduce some winners into this Arsenal side because currently they lack any winning spark or mentality, most importantly they lack what all winning sides have - consistency - our only consistent feature this season is losing games that we really, really should win. I slightly feel embarrassed for Gallas, he must feel that he is surrounded by lightweights.
OK you might think I'm being harsh but look at what Arsenal (a team which a few seasons ago were scoring for fun in an unbeaten campaign) have achieved this season. Nothing. People will say we are developing, that's what they said last season, at least last season we reached a major final...and lost again.
Today's result was the breaking point for me, I tipped Arsenal to surprise everyone and win the league this season, well they've surprised me by being a bunch of losers when it really matters. After we beat Man Utd at home, if someone had said to me 'This is as good as it gets for you this season' I would never have believed them. I'm so upset I just can't bring myself to think about Arsenal right now, I wish this season ended tomorrow.
