Arsenal’s 2-1 defeat at the hands of Borussia Dortmund was certainly undeserved and I felt a draw would have been the fairest outcome however that isn’t the case and now the team must move on to focus on the game against Crystal Palace this weekend.
One thing that came to my attention was the fact that Arsenal certainly did put out a good team, one that perhaps doesn’t better a Dortmund team full of players like Gundogan, Hummels and Lewandowski, but certainly reaches a similar par to it. In previous years I wouldn’t have felt confident in saying that however now with the additions of the likes of Giroud, Podolski, Cazorla and Ozil over the past two years and of course alongside the players we already had, shows that we are beginning to piece a really good team together.
Arsenal now has a strong quality squad and bench, despite the concerns that we don’t have the best depth in quality as a top 4 club possibly should have. However I disagree with this because although there is always room for improvement, and there are certainly many ways that this team can improve and go to the next level, I think if we focus on what we currently have its not as bad as we first thought.
We have proved ourselves so far this season, especially in the Premier League and bearing in mind a lot of people think its down to Ozil and Ramsey’s performances, I think that everyone on the team has been in spectacular form and like Wenger said “we are GUNNER get better”! Our first XI is strong, and our bench isn’t too bad either however imagine it if the entire team manages to stay fit and we welcome back Walcott, Ox and Podolski. We will have a ridiculously good team and bench and I honestly struggle to see how we cannot challenge for silverware with a side like that.
