…….and there I sat as I watched her walking away from me for the umpteenth time, the love of my life but yet she always finds a way to pierce my heart, even break it many times.
For some reason, I always run back to her at every opportunity just because, True Love??. We were just getting back together after the last split up and I was beginning to believe in her again, I was beginning to believe that maybe this time, our relationship would last. Over the past few years, it had become a trend for us to have a fight and split in November but this year seemed different, November came and we stayed strong, had some quarrels but quickly resolved them and I was beginning to believe again but little did I know it was just a hoax.
Now as she walks away again, I don’t know if I should still believe in her this time or just try again next year?.
To be honest guys, that’s how it feels being an Arsenal supporter, they just know how to crush a mans spirit.
We seemed to have everything in control yesterday but look how fast things took a turn. We went ahead early thanks to that Walcott goal and it seemed like we were on a roll, we were going to nail this, we could have even gone 2-0 or 3-0 up in the first half but bla bla bla, the first half ended 1-0.
We all know how horrible the City defence has been this season but only Arsenal can make that same defence look like it was manned by Juventus players. We just could not penetrate them, they seemed perfect but watch as that same City defence would face Sunderland next week (or whoever they are facing) and concede 3 goals.
Second half came and it was almost as if the players were forced to come back out. They looked slow, dull, uninterested and with that lackluster performance, it was only a matter of time before we threw the game away. Some 6 minutes into the second half and City tied the game thanks to that Leroy Sane goal, offside (yes he was offside, I mean was that linesman blind or what??) or nah, we shouldn’t have fallen away that easily.
After the goal, we became even worse. City remained in our half for long spells and I could almost smell the goal was coming, so I wasn’t even surprised when Sterling made it 2-1 (another controversial decision but what does that matter now?). At that point, I already knew it was over and we were just lucky not to have conceded more.
Now just look at Arsenal. In the space of a week, we’ve moved from 2nd place to 4th and 9 points behind league leaders, Chelsea. It’s almost as if we postponed our November breakdown and only just decided to do our November in December. This looked like the season when we would put up a fight and push Chelsea to that title, maybe even winning it in the process but look how fast we are crumbling.
If we can’t win the big boys, how do we expect to sail through this season? Already, we have played Liverpool, Manchester United, Tottenham, Chelsea and ManCity and in those games, we have won just 1, drawn 2 and lost 2. That there doesn’t seem like a very good record against all the big boys for a team who wants to win the league this season.
To be honest, I don’t know what to believe again with this Arsenal team. Is this still our season? Can we still catch up to Chelsea? Are we missing Mustafi? Is Coquelin-Xhaka even the perfect midfield fit? Should Gabriel be starting ahead of Holding? Is Cech past his best?
All of a sudden, questions are flying in from everywhere and the faster we answer them and fix this mess, the better for us.
Wenger tried to blame the referee for that game but Referee or not, we were poor in the second half, our performance dropped and that cost us, simple.
Fix this boys, Fix this real quick.
Have a nice week people.
