Arsenal 2–3 West Brom (League)
Arsenal 0–1 Newcastle (League)
Arsenal 2–3 Spurs (League)
Newcastle 4–4 Arsenal (League)
Arsenal 1–2 Birmingham (Carling Cup)
Man United 2–0 Arsenal (F.A Cup)
Arsenal 1–1 Liverpool (League)

What do these games have in common?

Each of these games represent moments when we were sure of 3 points either before kick off or at half time. But at the end of the game, we managed to throw it all away.

We have mastered the art of using the self-destruct button so much that we cannot be sure of a win until the final whistle is actually blown.

I really can’t be arsed into writing another long report about a team whose players do not seem to care. We were unproductive yesterday; we scored from a penalty in the 7th of 8 minutes of added time. Yet we could not keep our acts together for just over one minute.

The question I keep asking is why this team messes up when the stakes are so high. Now we have moved from challenging for the title to a position where we are not sure of finishing in 2nd place. Yes, we are just 2 points above Chelsea!

If we win the League this season, I will celebrate it, but you’ll all agree with me that we do not deserve it. Man United have shown more mental strength than we have and if they clinch it at the end of the day, they earned it.

However, I’ll keep supporting the Arsenal, come rain, come shine, win or lose!

Have a good day wherever you are reading this from.

  1. Wenger must go, he instillef this losing mentality and can’t admit his own mistakes. WENGER OUT!

  2. Complete trash! I told myself i wouldn’t watch any more after the carling cup failure but somehow i woke up to subject myself to more BS. I expected a good game as Liverpool are fighting for a Euro spot but damn! this is all just too much to handle because i had such high hopes at the beginning of the season. Now look, same sh*t different season. I called third place a few weeks ago just so i could be happy with second. looks like i was spot on.

  3. Sunderland 1-1 Arsenal
    Wigan Athletic 2-2 Arsenal
    Shakhtar Donetsk 2-1 Arsenal
    Arsenal 0-0 Manchester City
    Arsenal 0-0 Blackburn Rovers
    Arsenal 0-0 Sunderland

    more screw ups 😦

  4. Haha….spot on mate… Spot on… Victoria Concordia Crescit. The whole team was shite & Wenger was even dafter with his choices & timing of substitions. No need for a long comment. Its gonna be a long summer

  5. If you look at it on the bright side, the gunners are within 1 goal a game of being way ahead of the pack. Just lack that killer instinct that a more mature team has. Get rid of the extra baggage (Rosicky, Denilson), sign someone who knows how to win and can yell at everyone when they’re being lazy (I think it’s clear in situations like those that Fabregras isn’t a true leader), and I think us gooners are in for a good show.
