I'm really frustrated. I look at the league table and like many Gooners I hate what I am seeing.
This season could have been so different. The title is there for the taking.
Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United are not exactly setting the league alight and we haven't taken advantage of the situation.
We have struggled this season but Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United have too.
Inside Arsene Wenger must be kicking himself. If he could have managed to keep last seasons squad together and made a couple of summer signings, this season could have been the easiest shot at the title he has ever had.
Instead we face a battle for fourth place and wonder what might have been.
I have reluntantly ruled Arsenal out of the title race and hate to do so. I can't see us not losing another game this season. We are too inconsistent and lack the quality needed.
What is frustrating me is we were almost there last season and now instead of building on that we seem to have gone backwards. We have weakened when we should have strengthened.
This wasn't how it was supposed to be. Arsenal were back. Now I just hope for a top four finish when really I should be thinking that we are going to be champions.
Arsenal should have been in a strong position at the top of the table. The fixture list was kind to say the least.
The way the results are going if any of the top four put a run together then they would be title winners. It's too late though for Arsenal.
It may be too late but I often wonder what might have been. We could have won it this year. This could have been Wenger's easiest title win.
Keep it Goonerish.................
