Only on AM can people get giddy over 3 consecutive wins and forget that disaster is always a moment from striking at this club. The title? Top 4?
Several factors stand against us in our aspirations to achieve either:
1. An inept manager being carried by the youth players he has derided as not being ready a fortnight ago.
2. A bloated squad filled to the brim with absolute garbage on overly inflated wages.
3. Clubs with squads superior to ours in every conceivable position.
We're enjoying a good run of form but we've no inkling if this is yet one of the many false dawns we've had over the years.
Fortunately, reality will makes its triumphant return when the accursed Europa League resumes later next month
People aren't getting giddy over 3 wins, they're happy because we're playing good football and look like we have a system going forward. That "inept" manager sorted out a crap defence that has been rubbish on and off for over 8 years. A lot of work went into that, to just switch and say right lets attack, it just doesn't work like that.
I firmly believe Arteta can get top 4 this season.
Just looking at that Man City game depresses me. Feels like it should say 0-3 before a ball is kicked.
Don't we set an unwanted record if they beat us, too? The most consecutive league wins ever recorded v Arsenal?
