After six straight wins a draw feels like a defeat, especially with the invented club from across London beating a very poor Villa side.
But, remember. Six straight wins, and then one draw.
That’s not a desparate situation – that is a terrific run. And all done without Van Persie, who is beyond doubt our best forward.
We missed chances, and they got a totally flukey goal at the end. So it goes, but there are still matches to be played and still a lot to be played for. The true supporter, of course, keeps the faith.
We have a fabulous squad, mostly in their early 20s, mostly on long term contracts. Coming up behind them we have a tremendous list of no less than 28 young players all edging to get into the first team squad.
And we have won six and drawn one.
There will be more twists and turns before the season is over, and we are still there.
For each of us the choice is real, and it is now. We can be true supporters of the greatest club on the planet, or we can whinge, moan, blame the manager, turn away, and announce that one is never going to another game as long as Wenger is in charge (as one “fan” announced a while back in an email to AISA).
Of course we all have a choice. I have a choice as to what sort of blog I want to run – and that choice has not changed. I love this club, I believe in our future, I believe in our manager. None of that changes. We got a draw at the House of Satan. So be it.
Six wins and a draw in the last seven. Time for a celebration.
