The 2015-16 season is about to start, will The Arsenal be better equipped this season, to mount a realistic challenge on not only the domestic trophies but the European ones as well?
Arsene Wenger has said, he feels we are where he would like us to be, and that if we make a better start this season than we did last, he see’s no reason that we could be a factor. Arsene it has to be said, says a lot of things that I feel are just paper talk. Many times he seems to say things that confuses the interviewer and fans alike. Arsene is a very intelligent man, degree’s in this and that, he has had a very good education, but the degree I feel he shines in is Bullshit.
Arsene Knows we have a club now that can win things, he doesn’t want to come over as cocky, but seems to hesitate when asked certain questions, just how far the club can go. Pre season has been very successful, holders of the FA cup for the second season in a row, was a nice way to start off the pre season.
Firstly our tour in the Asian cup went very well, and we lifted the cup against Everton in the final. We then hosted our annual Emirates cup, which we also won. We then moved on to the Community Shield at Wembley against current League holder’s Chelsea. The usual Banter from the Chelsea Manager prior to the game, focussed all the attention on the special one, but sadly for him and Chelsea it was The Arsenal that lifted that trophy as well.
Most of the attention before that game, was about how poorly our manager’s record was against Chelsea’s present Manager, and how many times it has been since Arsene Wenger, has beaten his rival. All over and done now as we are now the holders for the second season in a row, can I see a patten emerging here?
At the moment, we sit with the Asian cup, the Community shield, and the FA cup nestling in the cabinet, at the home of football. Two of those trophies are for the second season in a row, the talk has stopped of The Arsenal’s Barren years, but will swiftly start again as we kick off the new season, with cries of how long its been since winning the Premier league, and if we will ever win Champions League. This of course will have to unfold as the new season get’s under way, but I have to say, The Arsenal have a bit of a swagger about them at the moment.
The Arsenal start their season on Sunday against West Ham, so will be playing catch up. I wonder just how many times that will happen this season, but the games will be played and as long as we start off well, we should be able to keep our points tally even, after all fixtures of the weeks games are played. Points will gradually add up, and I envisage it won’t be long before the leaders make headway, hopefully we can be up there leading.
Arsene Wenger has had a tough few years, the lack of funds and the change of stadium, the owners seem to have left most of the football side with Arsene to handle, and it has to be said he has certainly done his part to get The Arsenal solvent and building. The owners have also done their bit with funding and running the club as all football clubs should be run, funding itself.
As far as the supporters are concerned, we will always be a couple of top players short, but every supporter says that about their club, but i have no doubts that Arsene will buy when he feels the need, monies are available, we have a very big squad made up of home-grown and imported players, we have a good talent coming through the ranks, and Arsene has been buying young talent for the future, we are in fact in a position to make our mark on world football, healthy club, good squad, a fantastic stadium and a top class manager, we are on our way. COYRRG’s.
