I suppose your view on the Aston Villa result tonight depends on whether your glass is half full or half empty.
As it happens I believe that was a good point earned.
Believe me, a draw at Villa Park in this day and age is a pretty good result. Ask Chelsea.
Aston Villa are a very good side and I'd have taken a point before the game all day long.
This morning I'd have thought that 8 points from these fixtures against Villa, Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool would be very promising. That looks very doable now.
I think Sol Campbell deserves a special mention as well.
Many doubted the logic in re-signing Campbell. Some said it was a gamble.
Well Sol was immense tonight and I think he went a long way in proving why Wenger was right to bring him back.
It was like watching the Sol of old at times. He was superb, especially in the air and slotted in alongside Gallas with ease.
Having him back, as back-up for Gallas and Vermaelen, is very reassuring indeed.
Our Belgian stopper came off injured tonight and I hope he makes a speedy recovery because we need him but having Campbell ready to step in as a replacement softens the blow slightly.
For those of you who find the result against Villa hard to take, my advice would be to keep your chin up. That was a hard place to get a result and we have.
Forget Chelsea winning. If we can get through this difficult run of games undefeated and with 8 points the confidence in the side will be immense.
And I believe we will win the league.
Keep it Goonerish...............
