Arsenal 0 - 0 Liverpool

Losing both our first choice center backs before a game of this importance, predictably led to a first half of defensive shambles! A strange decision by the boss to play Chambers against the Liverpool team with Benteke up front did not help. Monreal with Gibbs coming in for the left back position or maybe, even Debuchy would have been a better choice. All the talk about how the whole team performed terribly is way off the mark when your 2 replacement center backs play the way they did. The less said... the better for them.

Crystal Palace 1 - 2 Arsenal

This was a nervous affair; a game we had to win, not just for the 3 valuable points but to stop the inevitable fall out from media who were waiting like vultures jump on our failing. 

In fact the game should have been done and dusted before the half time but for some wayward finishing, some good saves from their goalkeeper and plain bad luck. Alexis making his first start of the season should have scored in the opening stages, showing that despite all the effort, brilliant attitude, hunger and skill, he is still a little short of full match fitness.

Arsenal cannot afford to lose

I am still scratching my head and searching for answers as to why Arsenal would leave their most disappointing and disjointed performance this summer until when it matters most. This was a team who were hugely impressive in the Community Shield triumph which, although is not the best barometer for what will happen during the rest of the season, was a display that left many Gunners fans optimistic that Arsenal could avoid yet another slow start.

I was lucky enough to miss the first game of the season as I was abroad. When I arrived back in London I found Gunner Kingdom in disarray which is understandable after all the hype and positivity during the pre-season preparations.

Of course this was a game this Arsenal team should have won, but this is the nature of football: it is full of surprises, and it's unpredictability and the strength of the Premiership means if the team is not 100% on it you get result like this time to time. The trick is to keep it to a minimum during the course of the season. Unfortunately this loss leaves us with a very little margin for error for the rest of the season. It is like losing one of your 3 lives at the start of a video game.

A perfect scenario for Arsenal

A perfect scenario for Arsenal

There is this question that I am struggling to find an answer to: Would I have taken finishing 3rd in the league and winning the FA cup at the beginning of this season? Tough one to find an answer to as I think this Arsenal team has the potential to do better but for a couple of upgrades in certain positions... Definitely the best squad we’ve had since the Invincibles.

Of course we are still yet to negotiate the FA Cup Final at the weekend against Aston Villa, when BBC will be reviving the tradition of all-day coverage of the Wembley showpiece, with more news and information at BetHut.

ARSENAL LOOK TOWARDS NEXT SEASON

As the season draws to a close once more the main focus for many Premier League sides is what changes need to occur within the club to help them come back as an improved fighting force on the pitch next season. Even though Arsenal are still in with a chance of securing the runner-up spot this year, despite defeat to Swansea, and will also have the chance to pick up some silverware at the end of May, manager Arsene Wenger will already have his sights on piecing together an even stronger challenge for the 2015/2016 season.

Arsenal still have a great opportunity to avoid a trophy- less season as they challenge a resurgent Aston Villa in the FA Cup final on Saturday 30th May. If the Gunners do indeed grab  victory at Wembley, and enhanced odds suggest they will, then they would become the only club in FA Cup history to win the tournament 12 times, eclipsing rivals Manchester United.

Frustrating

I can only describe start of this season as frustrating.

Frustrating that we are still not able to shake off this everlasting injury curse which has been haunting us for many seasons.

Frustrating that we almost are a team capable of achieving great things but for missing a top class DM …or two.

Frustrating that we seem to give our opponents a ‘stupid goal’ start in almost every game we played this season.
