CONSISTENCY: NEEDED MORE THAN EVER by WAC
What does it take to have a good run? I guess the players who made up the invincibles. Unfortunately, there will never be such a team ever again in the history of the premier league. The best a team can hope for right now is a great winning or unbeaten run spanning several games.
Given the present scope of the premier league, every team has several ways of showing consistency. Its either you make your home ground a fortress or you embark on an awesome away run or score at least a goal in every game or concede no goals in several games. Arsenal were, prior to our last 5 games, in neither category. However, having started this run we have to keep it going.
Of course it wont be easy as we have lost the respect of every team in the league. Now playing Arsenal can be seen as being no harder than playing a team in the bottom half of the table. Boy! I do miss the days when playing Arsenal was a guaranteed bad day at the office for the opposing bench.
Our players just have to keep playing. Wenger has to make them prepared to give at least 100% in every game. If we play at our full strength, we are unbeatable, regardless of who we field. If I could, I’d tell Wenger to show the players tapes of our glory days. They probably do not know, or have forgotten, the calibre of the team who they represent. We just have to keep going even after the final whistle….LOL!
Was so happy December 21st, 2012 was not the last day of the world. At least we can still live to see Arsenal lift the champions league trophy someday. Happy new year Gooners…
