I have no doubt we will hear a lot of moaning and groaning about us 'only' beating rock-bottom West Ham 1-0 today but truthfully I couldn't give a shit.
A lot of people were expecting a cricket-score but football doesn't always go as expected.
Personally I think Robert Green deserves a gee-up for his performance.
Once again he was outstanding against Arsenal. I've never really rated Green but for some reason he seems to turn into a brick-wall whenever he plays us.
I think he might hate Arsenal or something.
If Chelsea won 1-0 with a late goal then they are resilient and its a reason that they are champions.
We win 1-0 with a late goal and we are lucky.
See the difference?
Who cares that it was a late winner? Who cares that we didn't win by four?
At the end of the day, its three points on the board and another win.
I'm starting to feel really confident in Arsenal again. In the days when Thierry, Patrick and co were in the side I was confident that we would overcome any hurdle.
Be it playing against side intent on putting everyone behind the ball or being 2-0 down, I'd still have the belief that Arsenal would come through.
We have been too soft for too long and finally we are becoming strong again.
For the last few years watching Sky Sports News during game time could be torture. Hearing a 'goal in the Arsenal game' made me nervous. Who scored us or them?
Now I'm confident when Jeff Stelling utters those words WE have scored. Like I used to be.
Grinding out results is what champions do. We cannot win by hammerings every week. Even if the opposition are bottom of the table.
A win is a win and I will take that every time.
Keep it Goonerish.........
