Spare a thought for Arsene Wenger, he has come out and said that the end of last season was the toughest of his career,physically and mentally, after Arsenal seemed to just crumble. From being in the running to winning four trophies to end the season empty handed and finishing fourth would take its toll on any manager. But I believe that things can only get better for Arsenal from here on out.
We will learn from the experience of last season and that will make us a stronger team. Our youngsters will never forget what happened at the end of last season and that will only make them better.
Wenger said, “The last part of it was the toughest of my career. That was certainly the toughest because, emotionally, it was very difficult because we were on a low.
“And then you could see, the last three or four weeks were very difficult.
“It was because I took full responsibility for what happened. I knew at some stage that it was lost and I had so much hope for the team.
“Through November and December, you could feel that the team had really taken off and could win everything. And it was so close.”
It all started with the Carling Cup final. Maybe we went into the game against Birmingham thinking that we had already won the game, only to lose it in the end. That loss seemed to kick start our slump as after that we went on to be knocked out the Champions League and the FA Cup. We tried as best as we could to continue mounting a title run in the league but that all seemed to fall apart especially after the game against Liverpool at the Emirates when we were robbed by the referee.
This coming season will be better for Arsenal, I believe. We have to keep on fighting hard on the field and challenge on all four fronts again.
