Tuesday Gloom-

Tuesday and grey London weather replicates the the gloomy mood surrounding Arsenal. 

The pain from Saturday's defeat draw with Blackburn is still weighing heavy on fans and probably players' minds alike. For me the most annoying thing about the match was our lackluster attitude which was almost as if we were resigned to the fact that United are going to win the league, instead of really fighting to win in the way we have won our previous titles.

As the inquest continues, for once, there is not one person that seems fully to blame - or remaining blameless - and as Wenger says:
"The players have to think about their performance - and me too."
Frankly is we are to have any hope of winning the league we cannot afford any more mistakes - what many people have been saying for weeks - and we could do with a good performance, and good win. The last one we had in the league was probably Wigan, but on that day we came up against very weak opposition.

Anyway, still four days until another matchday - due to the Champions League - but hopefully we can enjoy the destruction of our neighbours' trophy dreams even is it has this man leading the battle.

On to our own teams though and the only news today is that Frimpong and Lehmann are set to deputise for the reserves this evening at Underhill as they take on Sunderland. Minutes on the pitch is surely a bonus for both and in Frimpong's case it would be great to see him try and get fit before the end of the season.

There is still a lot of fighting left to do this season, and we cannot afford to let our heads drop for too long if we are truly to consider ourselves as title challengers. Till next time, hope you enjoyed it.
