What lies ahead

Time to move on, time to get going. Arsenal are now done with the Europa League after a shambolic 2nd leg against Sporting CP that saw an opposition wonder goal and the Gunners being dispatched on penalties. Adding injury to insult, both Tomiyasu and Saliba picked up knocks. How bad they are, remains to be seen.

Don’t actually want to talk about it or even think about it. There’s still too much ahead of us. 11 matches left in the season. 6 home, 5 away. A maximum of 33 points available. Starting with Crystal Palace on Sunday.

Palace sacked Arsenal legend Patrick Viera and installed an interim coach. Here’s hoping that doesn’t translate to that “new manager bounce” that’s hurt us in the past.

Let us know if you’ll make it on our the Bay Area Gooners Facebook page.

So still all to do. Arsenal’s destiny firmly in their own hands. When the season began, I think we all would have taken a top four finish. But now we can all but taste the title, and our expectations are understandably higher. I’m fully along for the ride and expect to be at Maggie’s for all of the remaining matches.

Hope you’ll join me! See you Sunday!

Best, Mark
