Arsenal should consider West Brom a warning not a stumble

Arsenal have been flying high in the Premier League so far this season because despite losing out to Aston Villa on the opening day of the season, the Gunners have turned it around to become one of the league’s most in form teams. In fact Arsenal’s performances so far this season have given real belief that Arsenal have the ability to come out on top this season ahead of everyone, rather than just the other half of North London. Winning the league is no mean feat and although the club’s top spot was thrown into doubt yesterday, with a difficult game against WBA; Arsenal managed to pull through with a well fought out draw.

A good second half performance from Wilshere got us the goal, whilst Szczesny and Gibbs were very effective in making sure the score line wasn’t even less in our favour. The game did bring round a few concerns however ultimately I feel that there isn’t too much to worry about.

The main problem from this is the concern that yesterday’s result is a massive two points dropped and the result leaves the Gunners level on points with Liverpool. But what the main concern seems to be is the issue regarding consistency. Arsenal have greatly struggled with consistency in the past, however so far this time around it hasn’t been too much of a problem and in fact I’m confident in suggesting that the latest result against West Brom won’t cause too much of an upset to Arsenal because it could mean we possibly go onto greater things by turning up the tempo once more.

Although I think this title aspiration is ambitious and optimistic, I’m certainly not putting it past Arsenal and if they can truly regain glory this season whether it be in the Capital One Cup, FA Cup, Premier League or even the Champions League (perhaps a little too ambitious now), then it will be pure greatness just for the fans and the players, but for everyone associated with Arsenal in anyway. One thing is for sure, and that is not to let the West Brom game dash your hopes because there is certainly another spring in Arsenal’s step!

  1. Warning to you Mr. Wenger! You had Gnabry, Ryo, Rosiscky all better options on the wings than Central Mids like Ozil, Wilshere, Ramsey combo. You have to drop one of them, because wing play is import to your style of team. Quite playing politics, accommodating for egos and proving detractors wrong. You should not drop points that you could have, cause we yet have to play the Big teams. Don’t get me wrong I’m happy with a result! But we could have had all three points, we just need a wing play rather than Ozil who did his job. We were more dangerous and direct when Rosicky came in (unfortunately injured Rambo). Wilshere came inside truly and get that all important goal. Just saying.

  2. Arsenal’s last two league games have been patchy.Swansea troubled the Gunners and WBA nearly ran them down.Only Ozil showed some fight and Wilshere’s lucky deflection earned a point.But, overall, Wilshere, and Giroud were pretty poor, both being slow and were indecisive.
    Also, Jenkinson has to learn to create space and put proper crosses in.
    Ramsey, for all his recent great exploits, had an off day.
    Another troubling sign is conceding goals on a regular basis.Last season, I thought the defence had ironed out set piece problems, and were defending as a group, but it seems, the lapses in concentration have re-emerged again.
    Gunners have the most benign schedule of the top four in the begining, but, later we will be severely tested.So it was important to pick up maximum available points from mid table teams and not be complecent from two three good or lucky outlings.
    So, we need to chose better professionals like Cazorla, Podolski, Rosicky ahead of temperamental young guns like Wilshere and try to earn a trophy or two this season.
