It is with great worry I write this; I am worried because a lots of Arsenal fans around me are scared that we may be paired against Ajax or Inter-Milan in the forthcoming rounds of the Europa League. They feel we don’t stand a chance against any of these teams in Europe.
Now, I have a question to ask; do we think these teams are also not scared of playing us? Do we think they will feel like we are a bonus to them? A team like Ajax may have young and exciting footballers but then we also have young and exciting players, in addition to world class strikers. A team with players like Aubameyang, Pepe, Lacazette and Martinelli, should strike fear into the hearts of any football team. Now, why should we be scared of playing them, when they should be the one scared of playing us?
I keep telling people that Arsenal has no business playing in the Europa league, but since we find ourselves playing there right now, then we should be the number one team in that competition. Our last two seasons in this competition has been two seasons of constant progress; we got to the semi finals in our first outing, got to the final in our second outing. This season, we should be aiming to lift the trophy and get done with playing in this competition for good.
I remember how people got scared when we were to play Napoli and Valencia last season. We all know how those games ended; we won against those teams like they were nothing. Yes, we are Arsenal and we play and win the interesting way. Should we be scared of meeting Ajax at any time? No! Should we be scared of meeting Inter-Milan? No! Then who should we be scared of playing against? Nobody!
I still can’t explain how we lost so woefully to Chelsea in the final of the Europa last season. We had no business losing to Chelsea, we needed that game more than them; they had already qualified for the Champions league by virtue of their league position while we had not. We lost the opportunity to announce ourselves as big boys in Europe then, this season should be different. This season we are going for the trophy and no team is stopping us. We are Arsenal and we are proud!
