Arsenal must 'keep humility, focus and fight for each other' in race for Champions League- Arsene Wenger
Spot on from the boss. The six game winning streak has propelled us into a great position to grab ahold of a Champions League spot. However, we as fans, along with the players, must take nothing for granted. Others have taken Gaps, power balances and such ‘as read’ far too early and we should be above such crystal ball gazing.
Don’t get me wrong; I, along with all Arsenal supporters are enjoying the moment, after having overtaken our premature neighbours. But come Saturday at 4:45 things could be very different, which is why we have to (in the immortal words from Anfield ’89) “Keep our powder dry”.
Saturday’s earlier kick off; Chelsea v sp*rs is pretty much the perfect fixture for us. It’s a win/win/win scenario that will either give us an opportunity to go 4 points clear in 3rd or 3 points clear, if not it will give us a 9 point advantage over Chelsea. If we get a result against Villa it will cap of a rather brilliant run with eight games to look forward to.
Man City and Chelsea will be fixtures to look forward to with relish as we entertain both sides at home. QPR, Wolves, Wigan, Stoke, Norwich and WBA complete the fixture list and it is not misplaced confidence to think we can’t do reasonably well out of these games.
The players have put the Club in a great position to finish the season on a high and I’m sure that they and us on the terraces will keep our feet on the ground but our heads looking upwards and onwards.
