Arsenal Message Board
I hope the media dont start there normal, Are arsenal contenders agains..
Those of us with decent memories, account between game 1 and 9 we play pretty dam good stuff then after internationals we dip, then between games 25-33 we blow it..
Lets hope we can continue with this flow, keep injury free which we wont, and just stay with the rest..
I still can see a major injury to one of the lads that normally leads to two or three.. Its how our season pans out, if it doesnt then we will be there or thereabouts...
Sorry, but I dont have any memory of us playing well early in the season except for 2007/08, when we challenged seriously for the Championship (which is what all of us demand for the team isnt it?).
Apart from that, the last four years have been characterised by poor starts to the season. Last season, after 7 games, we had lost away to Fulham and home to Hull and drawn away to Sunderland. We had also struggled mightily to beat WBA at home. We were not playing well.
Dont judge the team by past performances or "what happened ten years ago" or what you EXPECT. Judge the team each season by what you see unfold in front of you. Anyone who has watched the game for years knows not to get carried away until January or February at the earliest. But when the team put on an absolutely overpowering and dominating performance, as we did today, then celebrate it. We all know how quickly things can change.
Our team is playing as well as anybody in the country right now. Whether we will still be able to say that in May, we will have to wait and see. But it has been a very good start to the season.
And man, what about the ENTERTAINMENT!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
