If you are still one of those fans who don’t believe Arsene Wenger hasn’t lost it, then his latest comments will certainly make you reconsider your stance.
Following their latest joke result against Fulham at The Emirates last Saturday, The Gunners now sit a massive 11 points behind Premier League leaders Manchester United in eighth place. But Wenger believes his side are still title contenders! Which will undoubtedly raise a few eyebrows.
In their last six Premier League games, Arsenal have only managed to accumulate seven points from a possible 18, losing to both Chelsea and Manchester United and dropping crucial points to the ‘lesser’ sides of the league.
However, Wenger and, I would think, a small group of Arsenal fans remain optimistic that they can be crowned England’s top club.
When asked whether his side can turn it around and push for the title in the second-half of the season, Wenger confidently said:
‘Of course, yes why not?
‘We had come through three difficult games, especially the first two. We had to recover from the United game and then we gave it all in Germany.
‘All of us were disappointed not to beat Fulham because we had the chances to do that and in the end we were frustrated, but there were many positives to take from the game. Our performances are not as big a disaster as some people like to portray them and I still have great belief in this team.’
I’m sorry to say this, but Arsenal will not be challenging for the title this season – no way, no how.
If anything, we’ll be struggling to make the top four by the looks of it.
We are simply too far behind, even at this early stage, and have dropped a lot of stupid points (Sunderland, Fulham and Norwich) already. I am an optimistic fan, but also a realistic one and I just can’t see this current side pushing for the title.
I know Wenger has to try and keep morale high and state that we can still win it to keep us believing. But, deep down, the Frenchman knows we haven’t got a chance.
This is of course my view on the matter – would love to know what you guys think
