Feels like I have been given two Saturdays in a row woke up about 5am and didn’t know what to do with myself, thought of sorting my fantasy league then remembered it was a premier league free weekend. I should never complain about a four day weekend but some premier league games would have helped!
My Arsenal my Arsenal who happen to be the focus of today’s post as they make up the final trio of the title contenders as we enter the home stretch in the premier league, at least in my opinion they still have a chance. Like I did with Leicester and Tottenham in the two previous posts I will be having a look at their remaining fixtures and their title chances. The remaining Arsenal fixtures for the season are in the following order;
Watford(h), West Ham(a), Crystal Palace(h), West Brom(h), Sunderland(a), Norwich(h), Mancity(a), Aston Villa(h)
The fixtures don’t look that bad apart from West Ham away, Mancity away and maybe Sunderland away too. West Ham are still in the FA cup and have a replay 4 days after they play Arsenal. Slaven and his boys are really keen to win the FA cup, Pellegrini currently is trying his utmost best to make sure Pep starts his European adventure with Mancity in Europa and big Sam has struggled to beat Wenger since he left Bolton, so those three fixtures are not as bad as they actually look. Like everybody else I honestly can’t say I know which Arsenal is going to be playing in any of those remaining games as Jekyll and Hyde don’t even come close to describing this team. In any case to win the league they have to finish the season perfect which I can’t see and can see at the same time.
From the remaining 8 games 5 are at home and I hope the fans realise this is not the time to be protesting this is a time to be firing the team with all that they have as long as there is still a slim chance of the title. Let’s also remember that if there is any team in this galaxy of ours that we live in that can devise the most difficult way to accomplish a task it’s Arsene and his boys!
So hold on tight to your seats the season is building up to end with a bang I will go as far to put in a prediction, the top three are going to finish like this; Arsenal, Leicester FC, Tottenham yep that’s my prediction. I was watching the game show Tipping Point yesterday and of the remaining three contestant this lady had just 200 pounds and was running last with a very slim chance of beating the rest with three rounds to go. She won the remaining rounds and ended up winning, yes that’s my sign! I need help I know but I am a desperate Arsenal fan and I will grab at anything that mirrors our present situation.
Enjoy your Easter people as best as you can even if it’s without football , hit me up with your predictions people. How will the league table finish?
