Very few of us expected a single point from the sequence of those games, I fancied us maybe to nick a point somewhere, so we ended with three but- having seen the way we have played, we gave them ALL a game, it is a very bitter pill indeed and we are left looking back to rue those errors, the late goals, the lapses in concentration.
I believe you make your own luck. We could and should have scored at least two against Arsenal, but they put their men in front of the ball at the most vital of split seconds on several occasions and their keeper did what he is paid to do at one of the best clubs in Europe by pulling off a string of top class saves. We could bemoan our luck but the way I see it, as the Arsenal fan above mentioned both Fabregas and Arshavin in particular should have scored- Arshavin hit the post- the fact that wasn't a third Arsenal goal was nothing to do with luck but based on the simple fact he didn't finish it. You take your chances or you don't. You make the pass or you give it away. Your keeper makes the save or they score. It breaks down to simplicity. Despite all that, I am still sat wondering how we could have played so well, and still find ourselves 19th with 9 points. It wouldn't matter if Chelsea were visiting next, the fact is we need 3 points on Saturday, end of. Two wins could catapult us several places but if we look beyond Birmingham in 17th, we are already 5 points behind Blackpool of all teams (credit to them) in 14th. We can't allow the gap to keep growing, otherwise the rest of the season will leave us in a second consecutive relegation fight when having stayed up, and bringing in some real quality over the summer in my opinion for the tune of close to 20 million, a second relegation fight you can't justify. I am a great fan of Mick and everything he has done for this club- I have every confidence he can turn things round. I hope my faith is repaid on Saturday- I do believe that if we can match the level of performance we have shown over the last four then we will be on 12 points by 5pm Saturday and can keep looking forward.
