Greetings and Salutations my fellow Gooners!

Its been much too long since we last chatted.

First and foremost I hope everyone is in good health and standing.

My sincerest apologies to all for not having reached out to say a simple hello, no excuses, I will do better, jeez don't I sound quite eerily similar to one Mr Mikel Arteta.

And isn't that in itself our initial dilemma with the greatest football club the world has ever seen.

Skeptical, angry, optimistic, confused, joyous, deflated.

One thing is for certain, Mikel has taken us thru an emotional rollercoaster this season hasn't he?

Relegation, Top 4, European Conference, the man is not boring

But I won't lie I almost pine for boring boring Arsenal to return

Because at least then we were CONSISTENT

The old adage goes "The hallmark of GREATNESS, is consistency in good behaviours"

Well Arsenal have got to be the most Consistent Inconsistent club in football today

From false dawns to false 9's let's cut to the chase, WE'RE ALL OVER THE PLACE

And what concerns me is that it appears there's a plan (Trust the process) , it appears we have fantastic young talent (youngest avg age in the league) , it appears we're willing to buy (biggest spending club in Europe last summer) , it appears we have a manager with potential (played for Arsene, trained under Pep)

But despite how it positively appears (as per the above) , doesn't it also appear that we're no further along from this time last year?

Last year we were talking about missing Europe, Ozil, deadwood, squad depth and Mr Xhakas value

This year we're talking about missing Europe, Auba, deadwood, squad depth and Mr Xhakas value

Ive started to wonder if we're simply just shuffling deck chairs on The Titanic or is the future bright.

Right now that's the conundrum, we're equal parts good and bad and it can feel like we're stagnant

But fellow friends, Gooners the future is very very bright!

We have a fantastic young nucleus!

Our transfer window last summer was brilliant, Ramsdale, Tomiyasu, White, 3 great young starters for many years to come

And I believe we will do it again this year

Top 4 was an ambitious goal at the start of the year, and I prefer to look at this blip as an opportunity for these young lads to a. Learn how to compete, and b. to stand up after adversity and move forward

And I have no doubt they will, because despite the losses there's a great sense of togetherness amongst the players and manager and that spirit is invaluable, it's the core of every winning club in any sport.

And its that same spirit that brings us together here, on the best damn Arsenal website in the world!

Look forward to connecting with all of you more often

Stay safe and be well friends!



{Ed014's Note - how many years is it now we’re just a few players away from being the real deal? ?

Ed thank you for the prompt posting

And as always you are correct, as it's been 20+ years since our last league title, I meant to say that in another 2 or 3 DECADES I strongly believe we'll have the players needed to win ;)

I hope all is well :)

{Ed014's Note - and now you’ve mention prompt I’ve taken what is known as an Arsenal to reply! ?

Yes all good and hope likewise with you, we sure have had a few false dawns though, the last one with youngsters was the Wilshere, Ramsey, Walcott, Gibbs etc era.

Let’s hope these youngsters are joined by others and go on to become another team to be proud of! ??
