I admire Cesc Fabregas even more now I have read his comments about Arsenal's title aspirations.
Its true that football is a funny old game and mathematically Arsenal are still in with a shout for the title but the realistic aim for Arsenal's league campaign is now a top four finish.
I'm used to hearing Arsene Wenger say that the title is still an ambition this season but we Gooners are no fools.
By saying Arsenal can still win the league I understand Wenger is trying to get some belief into the squad and not let their focus drop.
Perhaps he should go a different route and explain that his methods and their inconsistent form have resulted in our current league position and is the real reason for us not competing for the title!
Perhaps he should explain that they, and him, owe the many Gooners who are disappointed with how the season has paned out, an end of season flurry.
Sometimes it better to be honest because it makes people think. William Gallas was brutally honest and ended up losing his captaincy but his comments were true and I'm sure that many in the Arsenal squad took note.
I'd prefer to see honesty and I applaud Fabregas for saying what he said. His comments were spot on and that's why he will be the perfect captain for this team.
What he said makes perfect sense. Arsenal need to focus on a top four finish and the squad is definitely good enough to achieve that.
Keep it Goonerish.......
