Change of luck at Arsenal?

by admin

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

On Wednesday night Arsenal qualified for the Champions League. It was a very tense first half, with the Gunners going down 1-0 (agg 1-1), the tense half was a different story. After the break, Arsenal came back strong, dominating the game as we are so used to seeing them do. The game ended 1-2 Arsenal (agg 1-3). Although Arsenal won, there is no denying luck was on their side during the first half, the cross bar and goal posts saved them from going 2/3 -0 down.

Normally, luck tends to go against Arsenal; bad decisions, injuries, etc. But has their luck finally changed? All those goals that could have been for Udinese, Szczesny’s wonderful penalty save, the win away from home.

Now that Arsenal have qualified for the Champions League, a number of doors have opened for the club. With Champions League football to offer, Arsenal will become a much more attractive club for players.
From what I’ve heard terms with Eden Hazard have been agreed, but the player was waiting to see if Arsenal had qualified for the Champions League. I don’t know how true this is, but if it is true then this will be a major turning point for Arsenal. The signing of Hazard will be a fantastic one for the club and will be one of the ‘big’ signings the fans have called for.

But I don’t think one signing will be enough. Sources also saying Arsenal are close to signing Cahill, M’Villa and Dann, how many of them are true? I honestly have no idea, but all of those signings will be a great addition to the current squad. A few quality signings is what Arsenal need right now.

The game against Udinese could be a turning point in the not-so-great start to Arsenal’s season. Qualifying means more possibility if signing new players, the win will have also given the players confidence which is something I believe they have lacked recently. Confidence is everything in a team, if you don’t believe you can win, you won’t win; the fans now will also have more belief in their team and get behind the team fully.

This is definitely going to be a tense, nerve racking week for the Arsenal faithful, in the transfer market and with the game against Manchester United. But I think Arsenal’s luck is changing and things will start to look up for Gooners.

    its only 1 game but I was impressed with the way the team pulled together.

    Gervinho was superb, and Walcott showed that he’s ready to play as an out and out striker, imagine Walcott & RVP? Deadly, so much pace and skill.

    Schenzy was class again, he has saved us 20 m and looks much better than Uniteds keeper.

    Jenkison also impressed.

    I really hope Wenger goes out and spends some money now
