I said a long time ago that the league title was beyond Arsenal this season and I've seen nothing tonight that will change my mind.
We are too inconsistent and you have to say that is because we have such a young side. The players have hardly anyone inspirational to look up too. Except maybe one player at the moment, Robin van Persie.
It was another poor performance and we should thank our lucky stars that we have Robin van Persie in our ranks.
The boy wonder is dragging us through games by himself at the moment and really is beginning to fulfill his potential. He has always scored important goals for Arsenal and now, free of injury, we are seeing the best of him.
His goal tonight was special, and he is a special player. More importantly the goal came in stoppage time, it probably felt like a winner to the Arsenal side.
Despite the empathic feeling of a stoppage time leveller we have to take a reality check. The top four has to be the target and this was an important point to take from a game we looked like getting nothing from.
The undefeated run of course continues and that will give the players a big boost, hopefully the squad can kick on from here and now get a winning streak together.
I'm confident of a top four finish despite Aston Villa, Chelsea and Liverpool being the obvious favourites to finish above us. I don't include Manchester United, to be honest I think they will be Champions, although it pains me to admit it.
I think that Liverpool are feeling the pressure now and will begin to slide. Aston Villa's luck cannot continue and I believe they too will faulter as the season goes on.
I think Arsenal can finish in the top three but it will be difficult. The title though, is sadly beyond us.
Keep it Goonerish............
