Something is seriously wrong at our club. Confidence and belief seem to have gone astray, any goal scoring skills we once had seem to have deserted the players and our usual passing game has disappeared.
Is it time to apportion blame? if so, who takes the flak?
Last nights game should have been a fairly easy exercise in winning once we got the first goal, superbly taken by Campbell, but once again we let things lapse and got punished. All of a sudden confidence seemed to evaporate and we looked nervous.
I’m really lost for words, just can’t understand how this team can let an opportunity like that be turned around by a relegation side. Ok, the woodwork intervened a few times, Giroud missed a sitter, it was easier for him to hit the net rather than the crossbar. The Sanchez free-kick took a slight deflection off the Swansea wall to also hit the crossbar, but still, everyone could surely see that something is drastically wrong with our current team.
However, I’m going to remain positive (WHAT? I hear you cry) yes, I will remain positive and with hope until it is mathematically impossible for us to win the title. There’s still a chance we can hit some form, it could possibly come on Saturday against the Spervs, but that doesn’t stop me dreading the game at WHL.
I saw a distinct lack of leadership last night and against United last Sunday. Both on the field and from the dugout, this I believe to be our main achilles heal, there is no one who takes responsibility during a game to rouse enthusiasm or to push the team to fight. It’s been like that for some time and is a real disadvantage which needs to be addressed.
The only good news last night was the N17 prats losing at Upton Park, at least that result means we stay in touch with the top two and City losing at Anfield means that the gap behind us is still four points.
So for the moment I’m staying positive, this situation could be turned around if the team find some belief and determination to give it a go. How they can do that I’ve no fucking idea….. firstly Wenger has to instil some discipline into the side so they don’t continue losing games which they are dominating and heading for an easy win. That would be a start.
It wouldn’t surprise me if we now go on a good run and win the Title. Six points off the top is not a vast difference, it can still be done.
