Tottenham gave us a glimmer of up dropping at house time Brighton within the early kick off.

By 5pm that hope was diminished after we misplaced to Southampton.

On one other day, Arsenal would have scored 3 or 4. However missing in type and dealing with an inform keeper we went down one to nothing.

The tip of this season is feeling very very similar to the top of 2018/19.

High 4 in our arms, solely to let it slip within the closing phases

Within the 2018/19 run in, we did not beat the likes of Crystal Palace, Brighton, Leicester Metropolis, Tottenham, Wolves and Everton.

This season it’s a related commonplace (and names) which have brought about our downfall – Palace, Brighton and Southampton.

There’s a motive why Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester United are all battling out for 4th while Chelsea are clear in third – and Manchester Metropolis and Liverpool competing for the highest – it’s the outcomes in opposition to these mid-table groups.

However while this season is starting to reflect 2018/19, is does additionally really feel very totally different.

Most of us had us down for fifth or sixth in the beginning of the season.

However we now have a squad that we are able to construct on moderately than having shit we have to promote earlier than we purchase.

In the summertime of 2019 we blogged quite a bit about what number of underneath performing gamers we had – the likes of Ozil, Mustafi, Bellerin, Sokratis, Koscielny, Iwobi, Kolasinac and extra.

It felt like there was extra gamers on the “promote” (or deadwood”) listing than the preserve.

Proper now there may be much more positivity regardless of our type because it appears like we’re a membership going someplace.

Now we have persistently put out the youngest workforce within the Premier League this yr; and you’ll in all probability rely the “deadwood” on one hand.

This summer season it will likely be about who we are able to add to this squad moderately than who we have to get rid. And that’s the necessary distinction.

We add a few new strikers, some new creativity and metal within the center and we’re remodeled.

That is an Arsenal squad transferring ahead. 2018/19 was an Arsenal squad transferring backwards.

So preserve your head up. The tip of the season is perhaps robust however there may be loads to be enthusiastic about.

We had been saddened to see the passing of former chief scout Steve Rowley following a brief sickness.

Steve spent practically 40 years with the membership, first as a part-time scout scouring Essex (the place he found Tony Adams and Ray Parlour) after which progressing by to being the principle man.

Our ideas are with Steve’s household. A real Arsenal man.

Benefit from the final day of a financial institution vacation weekend.
