That makes it 21 games unbeaten. Think about it, 21 games unbeaten and still ‘fans’ are unhappy? Now don’t get us wrong, we love a bit of banter and we are used to the old Highbury library moaning and groaning but this is getting ridiculous.
Unai Emery and his team are doing a stunning job. The games are coming thick and fast, the injuries and temporary bans for too many yellow cards are making team selection tricky BUT it’s the same for everybody!
Gooners need to take a leaf out of Unai’s book, just watch him on the touchline, keeping his team focused, making changes exactly when they are necessary and constantly asking them to keep calm and play football the way we all want.
By keeping the faith yesterday Lucas Torreira produced an absolutely brilliant overhead kick goal to give us a very gritty hard fought win. It wasn’t that long ago when the chant ‘One nil to the Arsenal’ used to resonate around the stadium and fans went home happy. Let’s get that enthusiasm back as, let’s face it, if we don’t get behind the team the next time we do lose a game are we going to have to face ‘Unai Out!’ placards the same way the best Arsenal manager in the clubs history had to?
Gooners are funny fickle fans sometimes, still moaning about a draw at Old Trafford and only being in the top 5 in the Premier League.
