Oh the despair! The agony! The torture!
On a serious level are things really that bad?
Blimey the way some people are going on I'd have thought that the world was just about to end.
Of course yesterday was frustrating and disappointing but take a reality check!
We have just lost to the champions, worthy champions at that, on their home turf. No disgrace for anyone.
In fact, I'm proud of the way the boys played and proud of the fact that Chelsea, the champions, completely changed their usual pattern of play just to deal with us.
How often do you see Chelsea put ten men behind the ball, for the most part of 90 minutes, at home? I guarantee you will not see them play like that at home again this season.
At the end of the day, in my opinion, Arsenal are the better side. Yes, I said it, better than Chelsea. BUT, and there is a but, Chelsea are miles ahead of us tactically.
Obviously Arsene Wenger needs to learn how to beat Chelsea again, he used to be able to, but I really think a big factor in the defeat was the choice of players available.
Don't get me wrong, I hate to use injured players as an excuse, but we lacked a cutting edge and I have no doubt that had Cesc, RVP and Walcott been available we would have won yesterday.
The game was made for van Persie and especially Cesc Fabregas. A game where you have so much possession needs a cutting edge. Those two would definitely have provided that.
Things aren't as bad as they might seem and Arsenal are certainly not as bad as people are suggesting!
The title isn't decided in October. True, we aren't in the position we'd like to be but I'm sure we will still compete for the championship.
Look at it this way, things could be worse. We could be in Liverpool's position.
Keep it Goonerish......
