I have no doubt I will get slaughtered by some for writing this piece but hey-ho I am there to be shot at. You couldn't miss this nose anyway!
When I look at this Arsenal squad I see so much quality. I really do. If you look deep down I'm sure most of you do too.
On paper, in my opinion, a first choice Arsenal 11 matches anything that Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United can muster up.
Now you may think 'Hold up, Wrighty has had a liquid lunch again" but seriously have a look at the squad on Arsenal.com.
That there is a decent squad who, for reasons unknown to me, are underachieving at the moment.
I can't put my finger on why we are struggling at the moment.
I kind of think its a confidence issue because when we are on-form we take the piss out of teams but off-form, well, they piss on us.
Maybe its a complacency thing? I would hope not because I think in the past we have definitely seen previous Arsenal sides think they have just got to turn up and they would win.
All I know is, at this very moment in time, we need something to inspire us. We need a big win. A confidence boosting victory to kick-start our campaign and get us back on track.
That's why I think this NLD coming up is perfect timing and could be the vodka and to...sorry the tonic to get us going again.
Of course that notion could go the complete opposite way. Defeat against that lot could see us crumble like a cookie soaked in milk and really deflate us. In a bad way.
But a victory? A win against them lot could really set us up for the decent season we showed glimpses of having a month or so ago.
Form goes out the window when its derby day. Anything can happen.
And I am optimistic that if, and its a big 'if' going by recent form, this Arsenal side 'click' then we could go on a run of games to change our season and claw our way into contention in that top four.
Last season beating S*urs 5-2 was the injection needed to boost our confidence and I really feel this Saturday could be the same.
I can understand people doubting that but there is a belief I have had since the summer and I won't change my view on it.
This is the most complete Arsenal squad Arsene Wenger has had at the club for a long time and a shit run of form doesn't make me feel any different.
Remember form is temporary, class is permanent and we have lots of class at Arsenal.
