What separates Arsenal Fans from the rest is that we are Arsenal Fans, we are not just Glory Hunters. We back our team no matter what, a trophy-less year, six or a decade.
We scream our hearts out to show support to our players when they were bombarded with, I HATE TO say it, Eight Fuckin' Goals.
Find a Chelsea fan who will back Chelsea for an entire week after a 3-1 loss to us.
I know plenty of ManU supporters who said now we support Real Madrid, for that Gay guy.
In that matter I respect Liverpool they back their team. And yes we do too.
This month has probably been the worst for any Arsenal fan, yes I agree, 4 points from 5 games that's not Arsenal, conceding 16 goals well that is also not Arsenal as well.
Luckily, I haven't been watching Football much of late. Avoided ManU game, and also Blackburn. But that doesn't keep me from writing. This is the time as a true Gooner I need to back my team.
Its hard defend two major losses while being criticized to the extent we are being criticized.
There is nothing I can say which defends conceding 4 goals against Blackburn and 2 of which coming from two of our regular starters. So to make it simple I wont defend it.
I shall just move on to what I am expecting the rest of the season.
Two new defenders that makes it roughly a permutation of 24 defensive partnerships considering the defenders pair up with at-least one mid-fielder to support the back line.
So that makes it a complex Chemistry and understanding which needs time.
Also, we have 3 players starting who have hardly trained with the rest of the team for as many hours. Time is not on our side, but, I say I can allow one Carling Cup game and one Premier League Loss (roughly, next two games).
If you have been following Arsenal for last 3-4 seasons (damn these 8-2 and 4-3 jokes), you should be aware that Arsenal slip up in roughly last 6 games. So why not it be the first 6 games? Of which, ManU and Liverpool were tough fixtures anyway and a loss is always a loss of 3 points. No matter to what extent humiliating it is.
Its just a rough patch which needs small tactile changes, we need a defensive coach, our attack is still the best in premier league.
As Captain says, we need back to back victories and a couple of cleansheets.
I see a come back the one which we will be proud and talk about.
