I would just like to try and lift the spirits of some gloomy Gooners! Yes we have been knocked out of the European Cup! Lost out to the Scum at Cardiff and were robbed by bad refereeing against Blackburn! Trust me I know that it is extremely difficult not to feel upset after such drawbacks to a season!
We need to try and take as many positives from this season as we can!
I know that many people are sick of hearing that Arsenal being in a 'transition period' and it does get very frustrating when the consistency needed is not always shown. I think that most Gooners feel that we will finish in third this season! If you recall last season we finished 4th as you will all recall(sorry sp*rs). This means that if we do finish in 3rd which we should we are making progress! Maybe not the progress that most fans would expect from Arsenal but when you are stacked up against teams where money is no object it is very difficult! I think that to finish third this year and not losing a game at The Emirates would be a good season!
We have to wait for these young players to fulfil their potential and we have to understand that this simply cannot happen over night! Players like Denilson, Diaby, Traore, Djourou and Walcott are all world class youngsters. Despite all of Chelscum's and the Manc's funding they are all jealous of our team no matter what they say. Chelsea will only gain short term success buying experienced players over the odds! Even mourhino himself admitted that they are struggling with their squad! I feel that if Arsenal and Chelscum swapped fortunes on an injuries front we would be in swapped position also! We do actually have a lot of strength in depth as we have had the most horrific injury list all season! We will not have rotten luck every season!
I know that ultimately as a fan you see success through trophies! I think that without winning anything this season we have achieved a lot! Next time you take a trip down to The Emirates just look around you that is a great success story for the club! Look at all of the youngsters that we are bringing through that is success! Finishing in the Champions League places will be a great success! Arsenal is the most highly searched football club over the internet in the world! This may sound irrelevant but interest in our team is growing fast!
I don't think that instant trophies was ever going to be realistic after losing so many top class players! Even if we don't win the league next year or the year after everybody knows that it will be our time soon and it scares the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea and Man United to see what is going on down in the decent side of North London! Keep the Faith!
' My aim is simple - to make Arsenal not just the best in the Premiership, but the biggest and best club in the world' Arsene Wenger
I believe that Arsene has this target in mind instead of looking to gain success in the short term!
