Yesterday I was called deluded for believing that we could win the Champions League, well I'm deluded a little bit. But not where Arsenal are concerned.
I've believed all season that this is our year for the Holy Grail and I'm not about to change my mind now.
I know our short-comings. I know that this Arsenal group of players are far from the strongest squad we've had under Wenger but we are Arsenal and for as long as I can remember we have always been at our best as underdogs.
We are big underdogs for the rest of the season and that will suit us. We were underdogs throughout our run to the final in 2006 and this time we will go one better and win the damn thing.
We will have many massive games for the rest of the campaign. You could say every game from now till the end of the season is a cup final. This game against Roma is massive.
This team have reacted to big games all season. We've beaten the "unstoppable" force of Manchester United, we've beaten Chelsea. On our day we can match the elite and be even better.
Our football suits the Champions League. Who keeps the ball better than us in Europe? Maybe Barcelona equal our ball keeping skills but once we find that cutting edge I'm confident in this Arsenal team.
I understand its hard to believe in the squad but its all we have until the end of the season. Yes I know this is Wenger's fault for not strengthening when we needed it but lets wait until the end of the season and then we can judge.
Until then I'm going to try to keep calm. It probably won't last long but I'm going to give it my best shot!
And believe me, Arsenal CAN win the Champions League.
Keep it Goonerish..........
